Seed Eaters…Watch Out For Them


No Comments

I like hunting by hidey hole (small) food plots. Such plots can be great staging areas for bucks and stand locations. Hidey hole plots are usually planted just before deer season. During early fall there are more deer, turkeys, etc., than there will be during the remainder of the year. This is because there will […]

As the rut draws near more, and more hunters will be hitting the whitetail woods in hopes of finding success and filling their freezers with venison.

Grunting – Sweet Music To A Deer Hunter’s Ear


No Comments

Grunt calls can be a tremendous tool! They will work throughout most of the deer season, but they may work best during mid to late October throughout most of the whitetail’s range. Buck grunts communicate to other bucks in the area there is a receptive doe close by. During this time of year most bucks’ […]

Uh Oh – Predator Survey


No Comments

There’s been much press about the number of deer decreasing throughout the whitetail’s range. These reports are certainly accurate in some areas. Declines in deer populations have been caused by outbreaks of E.H.D. (Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease) and predators. There’s no known prevention or cure for E.H.D. However, excessive predators can be removed and a proper […]
