I started hunting about three years ago. The first time I sat in a tree stand, I was hooked! The first year I only gun hunted and didn’t have much luck. My second year was a great learning experience. I bought an older PSE compound bow off of eBay and got it set up and sighted in. I spent...

We first meet at a Ducks Unlimited Banquet in Queensport in the mid-80s. Fate seated my wife and me with T.C. and Skip - a father/son lawyer team from nearby Bronson City. Classic southern gentlemen they were - sharing my joy rather than showing jealousy - when the auctioneer called my name as the...

Hanging the bear in the huge oak tree overnight after the hunt was as much practical as tradition. The carcass has to drain and the meat needs to "season." And, the clients welcome the "Kodak moment" after awaking late on the morning after the hunt. And there's something primeval in a hunter that...

Some of us hunt for trophies, some for meat, some for whatever legal critter mistakenly walks within range of "the most deadly set of hands in the woods" (mine of course). No matter which excuse you use to spend anywhere from a few days to a few months in some of the nastiest weather in mother...

I had not bow hunted for several years until this year. During an open house at Fenton High School where my two teenagers attend, I was talking to one of the parents and found out that he was new to bow hunting this year and was looking for a partner to hunt with. Most of my hunting friends had...

I was hunting the lower part of Michigan just south of Adrian in the beginning of the 2004 Bow season. I have had a lot of doe under my stand and missed a nice buck after the arrow hit a limb, not a good feeling. The pressure was on and the gun hunters were starting to scout the woods and set up...

I am in the United States Navy. I have Whitetails.com web site set as my default internet site. There is nothing better than every time you open your internet you see whitetails on your computer. No matter where you are. I mean 300 miles out to sea or in the Persian Gulf waiting for a break from...

Saturday, November 13th, 2004 32 years (almost to the day) I have been looking for this caliber of a Whitetail Buck... 10 minutes after 9 on said morning, it was 18 degrees, the wind just started and I was freezing. The usual knobbed bucks and Doe had left my auto feeder and I was thinking real...

Last year was a great season filled with close calls but at the end of the season I was left with an empty tag but I did see some really nice deer. I decided that for the 2004 Archery season it was time for a fresh start. I started by buying a new Mathews Outback Bow a half dozen A/C/C arrows and a...

I'm sure you have been caught at it yourself, telling a little half-truth to make the story better. A tiny white lie to add zest to an otherwise truth-filled tale. Over and over with each retelling, you make the story shine in your memory and the collective memories of your hunting buddies, until...
