Do Whitetail Decoys Also Work On Mule Deer?


No Comments

I took my decoy on a trip to the Rosebud reservation in South Dakota. On the Rosebud they have a plentiful supply of both whitetails andmuley’s, but we were going to be targeting whitetails. One of my good friends, Ben Bearshield, was going to be guiding me and he had Cuddeback pics of some really nice bruiser whitetails in […]

Winchester Deadly Passion – Season 5 by Melissa Bachman

Squirrel Hunting – A Great Winter Pastime


No Comments

The creatures are plentiful virtually everywhere and for many of us, squirrels were the game by which we were first brought into the hunting fold. One of the best ways to fill a brace of squirrels is to find a good spot, set up, sit quietly and wait for squirrels to move. But don’t just […]
