Big Trail Cam Deer!

Two big ones from the Midwest. Nick says the first buck is living in a 2-acre patch in the suburbs. His right G-2 looks like a second brow tine, unique. This buck is one of the best I have seen so far, great frame, beams, tine length and mass. Shane has gotten this giant on cam for 3 years and figures he’s 4 ½. Good luck man!

Danny has been keeping us posted on a big 10-pointer roaming his hunting land. The latest: "Got over 500 pictures of deer this week on 2 cameras. The deer were very active. I got several more pics of the big 10. My wife decided to name him Spike. She thinks it’s funny for some reason. Ole’ Spike decided to make some daylight appearances. Hopefully he keeps that up. Sept 6th is our bow opener. Only 3 weeks! On a side note, I’m starting to notice a trend with my pictures. I’m actually getting more evening and morning pics the closer it gets to the full moon. And during the new moon I’m getting mostly night time pictures. This is the [...]

More Trail-Cam Bucks!

Love this chunky buck, look at the mass left side! From Nantucket MA. VA 8-pointer; the antler growth I’m seeing in the Old Dominion is impressive, it’s going to be a good year here. The last 2 bucks are on a farm I’ll be hunting in November. The split brow is cool, but he looks like a young buck.

More and more pictures are rolling in. Send any you get, they get us all fired up for hunting season. I’ll never reveal the location.—M.H. This is a nice Southside VA 10-pointer. Love our VA bucks! Louis got this awesome, incredibly sharp shot of a pair of shooters. Bob sent two. The doe and fawns are a beautiful work of nature. Bob named this buck “Crowbar” and hopes to get a crack at him soon.

Hunters: Chlorophyll For Scent Control?

2020-06-10T09:23:22-04:00August 13th, 2013|BigDeer, Deer Hunting, Deer Management, Deer Science|3 Comments

Chlorophyll pills are sometimes prescribed to people with extreme bad breath or body odor. Some people use chlorophyll for detoxification, which is in vogue with the hip crowd today. About 30 years ago hunters picked up on this, and started using chlorophyll pills in an effort to help eliminate human odor at the metabolic level. Hunters also chewed gum containing chlorophyll to cut down on breath odor. I wonder if the green tablets or gum really worked for hunter scent control? Probably not, because you don’t see it or hear about it much anymore. Did any of you ever try the pills or gum? I never did, it just seemed over the top to me. My scent control has always [...]
