Kansas Shed Hunter Finds More Than He Bargained For–A Human Skeleton

2023-03-26T11:19:53-04:00March 26th, 2023|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Hunting News, Shed Hunting|0 Comments

This story caught my eye because a shed hunter recently found human remains in the same general woods in southeast Kansas where I deer hunted (and shot a big buck) last December. According to Fox News, a man was searching for shed deer antlers in a rural part of southeast Kansas when he discovered human skeletal remains…. State and local authorities responded to the scene…near Humboldt, a small town about 110 miles south of Kansas City. Law enforcement said the remains were so badly decomposed that the age and gender of the person were not immediately apparent. An autopsy is scheduled in hopes of positively identifying the remains. Note, skull in picture is for effect only and not from the Kansas scene. [...]

I knew there were monster bears in North Carolina, but holy-moly. A local Haywood County hunt master Jeff Teague explains a good day in the western Carolina mountains last October. "When we turned (the dogs) loose, we didn't realize exactly how big it was," Teague said. "I run down the trail and I saw the bear, and I could tell it was a big bear, but honestly, you couldn't tell that it was 700 pounds. So, I got on the radio and yelled at Lucas (Teague) and Caleb (Henry), 'Hey, the bear's coming to you.' It went up the mountain to them, and then Luke and Caleb were able to cut it off, and Caleb was able to get the [...]

BIG BREAKING NEWS: Kansas Bans Trail Cameras on Public Land

  A year ago to the day I penned an article for Realtree.com titled: Is a Trail Camera Ban Coming to a State Near You? I wrote: Earlier in 2022 Utah joined Arizona and Nevada in banning the use of all trail cameras for hunting. Montana prohibits the use of cellular cams during hunting season.  I then asked: Could similar restrictions move eastward to states where millions of us chase whitetails, and where millions of us use trail cams extensively for scouting and hunting? It did not surprise me that those western states banned cameras. Most of the western elk and deer hunters I know, especially the die-hard “trad” bowhunters, are fervently anti-technology and very vocal about it. If the game [...]

Pennsylvania’s Saturday Deer Opener 4 Years Later: Liked By Most, Hated By Some

2023-03-08T09:49:35-05:00March 8th, 2023|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Hunting News, whitetail deer|1 Comment

Last year I reported on a survey showing that most hunters in Pennsylvania like the new if controversial Saturday 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. The study found that some 60% of hunters preferred the Saturday opening day. Top reasons cited included more opportunity to hunt since most people are off work that day, and kids are out of school so it's easier for them to go with a parent on Saturday. Lancaster Online has conducted 3 polls since the season was changed, and all three times the majority of respondents favored the Saturday opener by a wide [...]

Honduran Immigrants Kill Bald Eagle, Feds Won’t Prosecute

2023-03-06T09:34:48-05:00March 6th, 2023|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Hunting News|3 Comments

Responding to a complaint of a suspicious vehicle in a public recreation area in Nebraska in February, officers encountered two suspected illegal immigrants carrying a dead and very bloody bald eagle. The men spoke no English and carried no identification other than documents from the Honduran consulate. Communicating with the two suspects via a translation app on their phones, the officers learned that the Hondurans planned to cook and eat the eagle for dinner. How they were able to obtain the scoped air rifle they killed the bird with is unclear. The men were charged with unlawful possession of a bald eagle and not having a driver's license. Stanton County sheriff Mike Unger pointed out that police officers are not [...]
