    3 of 6 for the year!

    Had another successful track this morning up in Darke County. We arrived at the 15 hour mark and walked back to the hit site and Finley immediately jumped on the track heading toward the hunters last blood. When we got there, she had a little bit of trouble deciphering which direction to go and...

    2 of 5,....kinda

    I was in my pajamas and just getting ready to hit the hay when I spoke to the hunter about his need for a dog about an hour away. From listening to his account of the shot and deer reaction, along with the pictures of the blood, we decided to take on the track. The only issue was that if was...

    Were on the boards with a big Darke county doe!

    We're finally on the boards with a nice doe out of Darke County. We got a call last night that a doe had been shot a little before 7pm and they were confident it was gut shot. Initially we had planned on coming up around 3-4 pm but after I got off the phone I kept thinking about him saying he...

    1 up and 1 down in the first inning.

    First track of the season didn't go as we'd hoped unfortunately. This hunter was a super cool dude and this particular deer has a lot of sentimental value, so I'm really bummed for him. The hunter took the shot right at last light and couldn't tell where it hit. There was some blood, but...

    Federal Trophy Copper performance

    I know… it’s a little late for this post… but I just didn’t get a chance to write it up sooner. I’m a believer in the terminal performance of solid copper sabot slugs and this post is to offer some evidence to support my beliefs. I did some obligatory shooting the day after thanksgiving to...

    Best Process to Shoot Muzzleloader

    I have had a CVA Wolf muzzleloader for 17 years. I have had varying success shooting with it. For the last few years I have used Hodgson's Triple 7 loose powder and using Hornady SST .50 cal 300 grain sabots. I am also using fiber-optic sights. In previous years I would shoot straight but be 3"...

    Bow Hunting Success on a 19.5" inside spread

    The 2020 season presented me the opportunity to take my biggest buck to date. This buck was a nice 8 point buck with a 19.5 inch inside spread. After a long five days of hunting wind, rain, snow, sleet and heat, the final morning presented me with 19 degree temps and a light 3-5 mph wind. I had...

    Blowing out deer

    I was just wondering what you guys do in the early AM if you bump deer on the way to your stand and they start snorting at you. I've done this a few times over the past five years and it really kills my confidence. What's your next move?

    Deer calls

    Over the years I have ended up with several grunt tubes. Some are multi/adjustable, buck,doe and fawn. Some are specific doe or buck. I was thinking of replacing them with a new one and was wondering if anyone feels strongly about one of theirs... Any endorsements on deer calls?
