President Bush and 14 Wounded Warriors are participating in the 3rd annual W100K, a 3-day 100 kilometer mountain bike ride at Prairie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, TX. This is awesome, President Bush is a good man. Anything we can do to get these warriors into the outdoors is a great thing. I see it as our obligation to help these heroes who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. As the wars wind down and these heroes come home, we cannot forget them and our duty to help. It is more important now than ever. I can tell you from personal experience what an emotional and life-changing event it is to spend time in a blind or bass boat with [...]
In the TV business this is what we call a "screen grab," an image pulled from a video clip. I was reviewing the footage that we shot in Alberta last fall and got to thinking: Man, I am lucky to have hunted in all the places and seen all the things I have over the years...I never take that for granted. I was stalking some deer when that big wolf came lumbering up the tree line. Actually, there were 2 wolves, but we only got the one on film. What an experience, just seeing that ultimate symbol of the wild! It moves you inside, makes you tingle. Some people have asked why I didn't take a shot at it. Well, I didn't have [...]
Many big bucks don’t roam very far during hunting season, as I point out here. For more video clips, go to the Big Deer Tactics page and check out our new Big Deer YouTube channel.
I was the first to see this coming. From USA Today: COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Hunters across the country say they are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence. I appeared on the NRA News Cam and Co. TV show on Sportsman Channel 3 weeks ago, and the topic of Colorado came up. The Governor had just signed 4 gun-control bills that severely impact our 2A rights. I’m paraphrasing here because I do not have a transcript of the show, but I told Cam and the audience: “Hunters are a powerful economic force in this country, pumping more than $22 billion into the economy each year and supporting a million jobs…hunters are a sleeping [...]
Last week I flew into still snowy Montana and hunted coyotes with my buddies Luke and Reed (second and third from left in picture), and with Jesse (standing) and Lance manning the cameras. We had a blast and shot 3 on film for a special show I’m putting together on the coyote/whitetail dynamic. How many deer do coyotes kill? Do they eat adult deer as well as fawns? How might the predators affect your deer hunting in the future? Those are things we’ll discuss in the show, with the information weaved around this hunt. It was fun and invigorating hunting. We drove out onto the plains in the dark, got the wind right, and with the huge full [...]
