5 Massive Deadhead Bucks

2020-06-10T09:15:25-04:00February 26th, 2019|Big Deer Stories, BigDeer, Bowhunting, Deer Hunting, Shed Hunting|1 Comment

Some shed hunters that roam the woods from now till early spring will find “deadheads,” or the skulls and antlers of bucks that died months earlier. A deadhead might have perished of any number of causes: hit by a car, lost by a bowhunter the previous season, winterkill, predators or natural causes. Most deadhead finds are small to medium-size, but each year a few people stumble upon massive skulls, like these 5.                 This first picture popped up on my Twitter feed yesterday and is the first mega-deadhead of the 2019 shed season. It was found in southwest Ohio.             The top skull of 2018 also showed up [...]

Hunters in the Southeastern region of the U.S. were the most successful in 2017, with 55% of hunters killing one or more deer, according to the Quality Deer Management Association’s 2019 Whitetail Report. South Carolina was #1 in the nation, with 69% of hunters shooting at least one whitetail. Mississippi was a close second with 63% hunter success. 42% of hunters across the Midwest shot a deer. The deer-hunting in Michigan, with a 50% success rate, and Ohio (40% success) improved in recent years, while Indiana (35% success) and Iowa (30%) showed declines as compared to 5 years ago. Not the least bit surprisingly to me, the Northeast remains the toughest place in America to kill a deer, with only [...]

Use Trail Cameras For Predator Hunting

2020-06-10T09:15:25-04:00February 21st, 2019|Big Deer Stories, Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Predator Hunting|1 Comment

To shoot more coyotes use trail cameras to pattern the predators, just as you use them to track deer. This field report from the BIG DEER HUNT TEAM’s predator expert Jack Hazel shows you how: “Got two more coyotes last night! For several nights in a row, the Spartan Go Cam’s app gave me the exact time they showed up in the Dump Draw where we put dead cows. We set up 15 minutes ahead of time, and the coyotes came in right on cue. We hunted 30 minutes total. “The thermal image from my scope shows one of the dead dogs 100 yards away. “The Spartan Go Cam is real deal, not just for deer but predators too.” Note [...]

Best & Worst Cities for Hunters

2020-06-10T09:15:25-04:00February 13th, 2019|Big Deer Stories, BigDeer, Deer Hunting|3 Comments

I am fed up with the “wimp-ification” of America and the left’s cultural war on “toxic masculinity,” so let’s turn the tables. Nashville, Tennessee is the “manliest city in America,” according to a survey done by snack-food brand Combos several years ago. Cities were given points for masculine traits such as professional sports teams, hardware stores per capita, popularity of hunting, and propensity to throw monster-truck rallies…points were subtracted for emasculating features like high minivan sales, an abundance of home-furnishing stores, and subscription rates to beauty magazines. Other hunter-friendly cities were Kansas City, Charlotte, Oklahoma City and Toledo. Least manly cities were predictable: Miami, Chicago, New York and a bunch out on the Left Coast, like San Francisco.  If you’re [...]
