Big hunting weekend coming up. You and millions of other guys and gals have a few days off, and for many of you this is your last best chance to get your buck. After stuffing your face Thursday, get out there and try these 3 tactics. “Dumping Ground” Stand In farm country, head for a strip or pocket of timber that borders a corn or bean field. Inside those woods, look for an inner structure where two or three ridges and draws converge and peter out into a creek bottom. The thicker the cover in the draws and down in the bottom the better. With food, water and bedding, a spot like this is a dumping ground for whitetails that [...]

In the last 2 years I have shot over the spine of 2 bucks by dropping my bow and pulling out of the shot too soon. Since I started flinging arrows at hay bales with a recurve too long ago to remember, I have been fighting this glitch. You might struggle with it too. When you release and try to watch your arrow hit a deer, you unwittingly drop your bow arm and lift your head a few inches. Sometimes your rig is so fast and forgiving that you can get away with it. Other times you shoot just over a deer. Quick Fix: Pick a spot on a deer, draw, release the arrow and don’t move a muscle until [...]

A major survey shows that most hunters in Pennsylvania liked the new and controversial Saturday-after-Thanksgiving start to the firearms deer season. For many years, the Penn. gun season started the Monday after Thanksgiving, but that was changed to the Saturday opener in 2021. Two-thirds of the hunters surveyed preferred the Saturday opening day.

Most of those hunters are old-school and hunt from mountain camps. Deer [...]
