Earth Day 2019: Let’s Celebrate America’s Hunters

2019-08-05T14:19:40-04:00April 22nd, 2019|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Hunting News|Comments Off on Earth Day 2019: Let’s Celebrate America’s Hunters

On this Earth Day, I refer you to a passage written by two of America’s top deer biologists, Drs. Larry Marchinton and Karl Miller: In the United States roughly 3 million white-tailed deer are harvested each year… This translates to about 150 million pounds of meat. Add to this the amount of elk, turkey, squirrel, rabbit and other game as well as wild fruits, nuts, and vegetables that is consumed. To produce this amount of beef, chicken, or vegetable crops in addition to that which is already produced would be ecologically devastating. Acres and acres of wild places would have to be destroyed to accommodate this increased agricultural production. More wildlife habitat would have to be plowed under. More pesticides [...]

Alabama: Would You Pay To Bait Deer?

2019-08-05T14:23:57-04:00April 18th, 2019|Big Deer Stories, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Hunting News|7 Comments

Alabama has a penchant for strange and confusing game laws, like the current deer-baiting regulation, which allows you to use bait as long as the feed is placed at least 100 yards away from your stand and not in your direct line of sight. Who knows exactly what that means? How could a game warden enforce it? Well, that law might change, possibly to be replaced by another unusual statute. The Alabama Times Daily reports that the state’s House of Representatives has voted to allow people to flat-out use bait—for a fee! House Bill 197 allows for baiting of deer and feral pigs on private and leased lands for a $14 annual “bait privilege license fee” and a $1 issuance [...]

Deer Tip: How To Read A Buck’s Body Language

One November morning in Kansas, the rut was rocking when Greg Brownlee saw a doe walk out of a tree line and proceed to cross a CRP field. She stopped and looked back. "Oh boy, this is it," he thought. Greg’s heart dropped as he glassed a young buck with one antler come out the trees toward the doe. Then he caught more movement—an enormous rack overtook the little buck and made for the doe! The hunter started to get excited, but quickly took 5 deep breaths to calm down. "If I think about it too much, I could screw this thing up," he thought. The giant started toward the doe, but when he got about 150 yards out from [...]

Alberta 2018: Young Lady Shoots 238 2/8” Giant Buck!

2019-08-05T14:19:40-04:00April 11th, 2019|Big Deer Stories, Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting|Comments Off on Alberta 2018: Young Lady Shoots 238 2/8” Giant Buck!

This is the first picture I saw months ago of a mystery buck/rack that was supposedly shot last November by a female hunter in the Peace River area of Alberta. You know how enthralled and obsessed I am by dark, thick Canadian racks, especially one that I know will go 200-plus, so I investigated. It took some digging but I finally caught up with @tiffcheryl on Instagram. “That’s my buck in case you’re wondering!” she posted me back. All the initial info I had seen proved true. The giant was indeed shot by a lady in Alberta last November 12. Then I was able to study the official score sheet and see just how massive this buck is! 14 points [...]

11 Easy and Affordable Food-Plot Tips For Deer Hunters

If you own or lease some hunting ground, it’s time to get your hands dirty. The better you plan, build and maintain food plots over the next several months, the more deer you’ll attract and hold on your land come September. Here’s a 12-pack of pointers to help you do it. Design Before You Dig On an aerial map, look for strips and pockets of open ground toward the interior of your property that you can turn into ½-acre plots. “Inside” planting keeps your plots—and the bucks they will attract--away from roads and the neighbors’ fence lines. Also, the closer you build a plot to thick bedding cover the better your chances that a mature 8- or 10-pointer will pop [...]
