Many people believe that heavy winter snows cause the most mule-deer fatalities. However, the late March/winter snows have the most devastating effects on most of the mule-deer herds.
If I hear a turkey gobble and decide to go to him either to the left or right, I keep moving to the side of the turkey and get on the other side of the other hunter who is calling to that same turkey.
Are you using other calls besides turkey, crow and squirrel calls when you’re trying to call gobblers in during the spring?
One of the great secrets to consistently take wild turkeys is to be able to read the turkey’s body language. You need to see the gobbler before he spots you.
Most states don’t consider planting and fertilizing green fields or wildlife openings as baiting deer for hunting.
You may be considering buying that place in the country to observe wildlife and/or to hunt and fish. So, learn everything about the land before you close on that property.
Showing off the recreational aspect of the wildlife on your land can not only increase the property’s value but also make it easier to sell.
By using a feeder and a motion-sensor camera, you’ll have a better picture of the wildlife population on the land you want to lease
Trail cameras have been proven during a number of extensive studies to be as good, if not better, than the vast majority of deer-census techniques.
To take a complete census of your deer herd, having one camera per every 100 acres is suggested. The camera needs to be set near a desirable food source
Another advantage to the hit and protect lists is that they enable you to identify bucks that fall through the cracks of a management system.
Many landowners also are learning the value of using game cameras to catch poachers on their properties.
Hunting a feeder hard the first year can keep the deer away in future years, and the placement of the feeder is very important to your success.
Most hunters plant green fields to grow bigger bucks and think they’ll bag them at the green fields. Here’s the reality, the mature bucks become nocturnal first.
When bowhunters go elk hunting, I believe the biggest problem that faces them is judging distance. Most bowhunters don’t understand how big a full-grown bull elk is until they’re face-to-face with one
Steve Byers of Delta, Colorado, has been talking to elk and hunting elk since he was 3-years old and began cow calling to elk with his natural voice at age 5.
Chris Fowler from Stewart County, Tennessee, has a 25-acre plot where he’s taken several deer that have scored in the 130 class on Buckmasters.
If you found a buck of a lifetime that dreamed about at night, would you give the opportunity to take that buck to your 9 year old son?
Robert Cardin from Theodore, Alabama, never believed he wouldn’t be able to call his uncle, David Burleson, and tell him about his hunt with WITO.
Backyards aren’t supposed to be sanctuaries for big bucks. Everyone assumes you must get well away from your home to find an older-age-class buck to hunt.
