From North American Whitetail: “I didn’t get a picture of that deer until the beginning of November, but when I saw him, I knew he was a good one even if I didn’t really know how good,” (Troy Bryant) said. “I got my second set of pictures on Nov. 18. Once again, I knew he was a good deer from those photos, but I still didn’t know he was a 200-inch kind of deer.” On opening day of Oklahoma’s 2019 deer gun season, Troy saw and shot the beast. The Harper County buck had 11 points, 25-inch-plus beams and scored 197 7/8 inches gross 190 6/8 net, ranking it as one of the top-five all-time typicals in Oklahoma. Read the [...]

Review: Cabela’s Axis Hunting Boot

2020-06-10T09:14:51-04:00January 31st, 2020|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Gear Reviews, whitetail deer|Comments Off on Review: Cabela’s Axis Hunting Boot

I have long been a fan of Cabela’s hunting boots, for the money they are hard to beat. I wore the 8-inch Axis boot last deer season, for some 60-plus days, and it might be the best one yet. Comfortable the first time I put them on, no break-in time needed. Lightweight enough (2.7 pounds pair) and substantial soles that permit smooth and sure-footed stalking, and great ankle support. This is a great boot for both deer and elk hunting. The boot uppers are built of nubuck leather with 600-denier nylon. They feature waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX moisture-wicking linings to keep your feet dry and comfortable, and 400 grams Thinsulate insulation. I have found that 400 grams insulation is about perfect [...]

Pennsylvania Bowhunter Tags 43rd Buck

2020-06-10T09:14:51-04:00January 27th, 2020|Big Deer TV, BigDeer, Bowhunting, Deer Hunting, Deer Management, whitetail deer|1 Comment

Today’s fine guest post is from Big Daddy, who has been with me on the Big Deer Blog since I started it 11 years ago. Thanks for the support, BD! I began hunting in 1967 at age 12 and took my first bow-killed deer,a doe, that year. In those early years I was just trying to kill any deer. The years passed and most found me with a filled tag, some with bow others with gun. In 1976 I killed my first P&Y buck and it changed my hunting career forever. During the past 42 years I have taken 43 bucks with a bow, all but one in Pennsylvania. One was in New Jersey. I purchased property in north-central PA [...]
