Been getting a lot of questions from new 20- to 40-somethings who want to try deer hunting, but don't know where to start. First thing you need is a good rifle, scope and ammo. While bowhunting looks cool and it is, I encourage you to start out with a gun, shoot a few deer, get some experience and then graduate to archery.--MH For a lot less money than many of you pay in rent each month, you can buy a brand-new, highly dependable and accurate rifle that will kill a deer cleanly one day this November—and one day 50 years from now. Do your research and choose wisely, and you can purchase the first and last deer rifle you’ll ever [...]

How To Process And Cook Wild Hog Meat

One look at this ugly creature and you mighty say, “No way I’m eating that nasty thing!” I used to be that way too, but the more I’ve hunted feral hogs in the last few years, the more wild pork I’ve begrudgingly eaten. The key to safe and tasty hog meat begins just after the kill shot. The best (some would say only) hogs to process for the table are small to small/medium animals. “A piglet about the size of a football is my favorite,” says my buddy Sarge, a Texas wildlife biologist and hog hunter. “I’ll process and eat hogs that are 3 times the size of a football, but that’s about my limit. The little ones are most [...]

BIG DEER TV: Indiana Road Trip

I knew Indiana produced some giant whitetails every season. But when I read that the Hoosier State was Number 1 for Boone and Crockett racks in 2019 and 2020 (2021 stats not out yet) I had to go out there and ride around and talk to guys about the giant deer they’ve shot in recent years. So last week the BIG DEER TV crew and I set out on a big-buck road trip. First stop southern Indiana to see Sam Tolbert and the 202” drop tine buck he shot on his family’s farm. Then over to see Cole and Clay Holmstrom, brothers who own a landscaping business together, and in their spare time farm their land together for big deer. [...]

Hunting big deer up in Saskatchewan one time, I met a guy, let’s call him Mark, from Maryland. “Heard you got your buck,” I said, “Congrats.” “Yeah, a small one,” Mark replied. “I couldn’t take it anymore. I’d sat in that blind for 3 straight days, 9 hours a day. I was going crazy. I don’t like that kind of hunting. I said what the hell and shot this buck, just to shoot something." I peeked into the bed of his guide’s truck. Up there in the land of giant deer, where a 140-class buck is marginal and a 160 is very possible if you put in your time and get lucky, my new friend had shot a yearling 8-pointer [...]
