We may be late to the game, but at least we stopped talking about it and are now talking on it! @Jackalope and I are excited to bring another new piece of content to the TOO platform via this podcast. Our debut episode is now live on our YouTube channel, as well as on Spotify - search...
An Amateurs Take On His First Longbeard
  • 7,869
  • 16
It was the spring of 2017 and I was pulling trail cameras in one of my favorite spots to shed hunt anxiously waiting to get home and see if any bucks have shed yet. I look around for some sheds with no success and head home. I get the computer out and pop in my SD –card. As I flip through the...
Keep Ohio’s coyote season open

In an effort to bring this to the forefront and not buried in a thread please sign the below petition to keep a the Ohio coyote season open and not require the purchase of a further permit.

It was recently sent to the Ohio wildlife counsel as a proposed regulation change to run the coyote...

It has been decided that we are going to do a hoodie for Strouds this year. Here is the design, ignore the colors:

Here is the front. We moved the URL from the bottom to curved over the top.

Here is the back:

We are able to offer two color choices. Dark gray with white writing and blaze...
DIY poison ivy relief
  • 24,927
  • 143
For years I’ve told people about jewel weed for treating poison ivy and other skin irritants. This year while hiking I got the kids into some stinging needles and it worked on that too. Bee stings and just about anything I’ve tried it on, works.

It’s generally all around if you know what to...
‘Pulled the Trigger’

I recently upgraded my 2017 regular sporting barrel $229.00 ‘Savage Arms' Axis XL Bolt/Short Action WIN .308 Rifle. My rifle build...

I created this thread specifically to share my experience for anyone who may also consider much the same in the future. Considering all the different...
Baiting Mature Bucks.
  • 85,614
  • 462

I'll begin by saying I don't believe anyone can have this down to a science. This is after all an animal that possesses a sense of self-preservation honed over hundreds of thousands of years. No matter how finely tuned that sense is however, it can always be exploited. I've managed to...
Sweat equity? Or don’t sweat it? A lesson in managing balance.
  • 14,179
  • 38
For many of us, we identify with a particular aspect of our personality more so than we do other aspects. Some of us are prone to going “chips in” towards one facet or another, forsaking balance in pursuit of something “more”. When we do this, we often tie our value as a person to the output of...

The Saga of Bob Tom the Turkey.

  • 11,102
  • 20
As the sun rose without a gobble there we were; grinding it out on the same property I shot my bird on a week prior. Prior to the season, there were about four or five toms on this property. They were still here as evident by some close calls the week and weekend prior.

There was one bird...
The "Broken" Benelli Bird
  • 9,529
  • 33
My turkey season has not gone how I'd anticipated due to changing jobs a week before the season started. I was scheduled to have the first 10 days of the season off, but gave that up when I switched gigs. With my wife's new work schedule, I couldn't even hunt the first hour, and we were gone...

  • 4
Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the "safe"...
Wicked Lights ScanPro IC Ultimate Headlamp Kit
  • 14,033
  • 23
I received this as a early Christmas present from my wife and girls. I told my wife I wanted a scan light for when I go out calling instead of using my kill light on my rife. That gun gets heavy fast as you use that as your scan light as well. I had seen these in the past but was worried about...
Tulster Kydex Holster Review
  • 36,552
  • 80
The more I carry a gun, the more my my preferences have evolved. I started with an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0, which is a relatively large hybrid dual-clip IWB holster. It's nice... It supports the weight very well, but I dislike the bulkiness and it's somewhat of a hassle to put on compared to...

Hunting "Mature Whitetails" in Ohio.

  • 41,451
  • 153
We’ve all said it to ourselves “how does he do it”. The “he” being the guy that seems to kill slob bucks year in and year out. After having known a few of these guys over the years I’ll share with you a little insight to what I believe is the most critical aspect of consistently killing mature...
