Gear Review: Case® Winkler Skinner Knife

2022-02-10T09:06:19-05:00February 10th, 2022|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Gear Reviews, sportsman channel|Comments Off on Gear Review: Case® Winkler Skinner Knife

The sleek design of the Case® Winkler Skinner is the result of a long career in knife making by Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler and the experiences of retired U.S. Army Special Operator and Navy SEAL Kevin “Skinner” Holland. This handcrafted knife is the first in a series of collaborations that celebrate American Heroes, an idea brought to life by Case’s historic military contributions and Winkler Knives’ ongoing involvement with U.S. Special Operations. This fixed-blade knife is lightweight (6.7 ounces), well-balanced and impressively sturdy. The sculpted, multi-camo handle with finger grooves fit my hand perfectly as I gutted, skinned and caped an Alabama buck. The flat ground, distal tapered trailing point blade (5.2 inches) is made from 80CrV2 steel, known for [...]

Saskatchewan Huntress Smokes 7 1/2-Year Old, 170-Class Buck

I met Saskatchewan farmer Oneil Baillargeon on a hunt up North several years ago, and immediately knew the guy was a great hunter. It runs in the family. Oneil and his wife, Taylor, watched this tremendous buck for years and hunted his sheds every spring near their farm. A few days ago their history with the animal came to an end. "Sad but good," said Oneil. The buck walked by Taylor's blind at 25 yards and she smoked him with a muzzleloader. The 7.5-year-old whitetail had a thick rack with 13 scorable points. The rack was going downhill, but it still scored 168. BTW, this girl is a killer of big deer. Check out Taylor's 2020 buck pictured below.

Earlier this month, a friend from southwest Georgia texted me these pictures with the words: Hey brother, a friend of mine killed a solid white buck! Deer of a lifetime! Shortly thereafter, the story appeared on the Georgia Outdoor News website: Back in June, Tara Jackson…saw something that she had never seen before. As a buck ran across a field, she said to her boyfriend Bryan Spivey, “Oh my goodness, that’s a totally white deer!” On Wednesday Sept. 8, Tara got some fresh trail-cam photos showing the buck was still there and it was beginning to shed its velvet…. On Sept. 12…the white buck appeared, and she steadied her aim and took the shot. However, as soon as the bolt [...]

Don’t Let The Flu Ruin Your Hunting Season

2021-09-23T10:46:40-04:00September 23rd, 2021|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Hunting News, sportsman channel|Comments Off on Don’t Let The Flu Ruin Your Hunting Season

Got the following from my health care provider MDVIP. Good info to keep you healthy, safe and hunting throughout the season: COVID-19 restrictions such as social distancing, frequent handwashing, less travel and masking probably muted last year’s flu season, which researchers feared could be bad due to the pandemic. But flu diagnoses and hospitalizations were the lowest in 15 years. Ironically, those lower numbers could foretell a bad flu season for 2021-2022. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that reduced population immunity from last year’s light season could cause an early and severe flu season this year. Protect yourself as best you can by: Talk to you doctor about getting a flu shot this year— flu shots help [...]

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|Comments Off on Gear Review: Fenix HM65R Headlamp For Hunters

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 [...]
