Hunting [ 23 ]

A Morning In The Woods

A Morning In The Woods

At 4:00am, my alarm sounded. I dragged myself out of bed, went down to the kitchen, and poured myself a bowl of cereal. After eating, I hopped into the shower, threw on some clothes, and began the short drive over to Stowe Archers. At 4:45am, with bow in hand, I began to creep into the woods behind the clubhouse. I located my tree-stand, which I left in the woods the night before, and began to climb. Once situated, I eased […]

That is one rough looking turkey

That is one rough looking turkey

Every day I try to make a point to stop in over at Archery Talk and see what is going on. Generally I’m browsing the classifieds, checking out Bows I can’t afford, or I’m skimming recently active posts for something that catches my eye. Yesterday, while killing time during my lunch break, something caught my eye. I clicked through to check out The Worst Display of Taxidermy. Inside the thread I found photos of a pretty rough looking Turkey. I’m […]

Turkey Hunting University with Matt Morrett

Turkey Hunting University with Matt Morrett

Earlier today I received an email from Troy Ross that went out to all of the Archers on the Hamburg Game Association Mailing List. The email contained some information on an upcoming Turkey Hunting Seminar being held at the Hamburg Cabela’s Store. I’ve never hunted Turkey before but I’ve been giving a lot of thought to going out for Spring Gobbler. Cabela’s Turkey Hunting University with Matt Morrett sounds like an awesome way to gather a little knowledge before hitting […]

Cabela’s Northern Flight Ultimate Layout Blind

The 2013-2014 Hunting Season is winding down and it is bittersweet. I didn’t put nearly as much meat in my freezer as I had hoped but this season was leaps and bounds better than last. Thanks to Troy, I’ve gone from being absolutely clueless in the woods to having a general idea of what I’m doing. I think in maybe another season or two I’ll be able to call myself a competent hunter. Of all the hunting Troy and I […]

Win a Gerber Ripstop II Serrated Knife

Win a Gerber Ripstop II Serrated Knife

If there is one thing I’ve learned over 7 years of blogging, it is that comments are very important. Things have become a little stale around here and I needed to come up with a way to bring in some fresh comments. I’m not above bribery, so I thought I’d give something away. Here is the deal, I’ve got a spare Gerber Ripstop II (specs available here) that I’m willing to give to one lucky commenter. All you have to […]

Tasty Goose Jerky

Tasty Goose Jerky

Being a carnivore, I love me some jerky. Straight up beef jerky from the grocery store is good but wild game is simply fantastic. I got a taste for deer and goose jerky a few years back. A friend of mine was making up batches for friends, who provided him with meat, and part of the deal was that he always walked away with plenty to snack on. He was gracious enough to give me some, from time to time, […]

I would have screamed like a little girl

I would have screamed like a little girl

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to give bear hunting a try. To make a long story short, we had to abandon our tree stands and hunt from the ground. The concept of hunting an animal, from the ground, that could quite easily hunt me, was a little concerning. I realize that black bear can climb trees but even so, there is some peace of mind being in a tree. We didn’t wind up with a bear that […]

I need to become a Goose Whisperer  

I need to become a Goose Whisperer

A few weeks back I talked a little about Goose Hunting and how in this one particular instance, we had geese land just outside of range. Those live geese drew in even more geese and, before we knew it, dozens were on the ground and not in a position for us to make a shot. I’ve been thinking about that situation a lot. What would make those geese interested enough to come down with our decoys yet concerned enough to […]

If only it were dove season

If only it were dove season

Goose Season is in full swing and, enjoying it as much as I do, I try not to pass up the opportunity to sit out in a corn field and try my hand at brining down a bird. Over the weekend our area had a snow accumulation of a few inches. To make matters worse, some freezing rain followed the snow and created a hard crust. It would be a lot of work for geese to break through the crust […]
