New Jersey Bans Deer Urine, Hunters Must Use Synthetic Scent

2021-09-27T09:44:15-04:00September 29th, 2021|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, CWD, Deer Hunting, Gear Reviews, whitetail deer|0 Comments

Beginning with the 2021 hunting season, it is no longer legal to possess, sell or use scents derived from the urine or glandular secretions of live deer in New Jersey. According to the New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife the ban is intended to help safeguard the health of the state’s deer herd from the threat of Chronic Wasting Disease. The thinking is that using natural deer products in the woods could increase interaction between animals and possibly increase the spread of the disease. It should be noted that reputable scientists and lead authors of commonly referenced studies on urine and CWD agree that “the risk of urine-based scents spreading CWD is virtually zero”.

Gear Review: Fenix HM65R Headlamp For Hunters

2021-09-10T17:18:29-04:00September 10th, 2021|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Gear Reviews, sportsman channel, whitetail deer|0 Comments

In recent years, I’ve spent a little extra money to upgrade all my hunting gear, and I hunt better and safer for it. The housing of the Fenix HM65R headlamp I now use for deer hunting is built of a serious quality, black magnesium alloy. It’s strong, lightweight, and even waterproof to 2m. The 2 lights—a large spot with clear lens and a smaller flood with diffuser lens—have individual on/off buttons, and can be used independently, which is practical in most hunting situations. With an easy press of a button, you can engage 4 output levels on the spotlight; at the highest output, it’s a published 1000 lumens of light, which in layman’s term is very, very bright. Three flood [...]

On the plains of the Texas Panhandle last December, I packed in this unique little blind, plopped down the attached chair, sat down in it, organized my gear around me, pulled the camouflage fabric cover over my head, and was hunting a buck in minutes. The Ameristep Tent Chair has these advantages over standard and generally larger ground blinds: small, lightweight and easy to pack. since it’s one piece, no lugging both blind and chair(s) and having to make multiple trips to get all your gear into a hunt spot; you hike in with your rifle, pack and the Tent Chair on your shoulder (carry case included), find your spot and you’re ready to set up and hunt. you have [...]
