One Squeaky Stand

It was one of those perfect mornings and I was just happy to be out in the woods but after about two hours of not seeing any deer I decided I needed to shake things up, or rattle as it turned out. Right about 7:45 I ran through a grunt sequence and a snort wheeze… Continue Reading →

Marsh Monarch

Chased this guy around the farm for weeks and finally caught up with him on a bluebird afternoon in November. It was a hunters dream…saw him chase off 6 other bucks, snort wheeze, grunt, and tend a doe – a magical day in the tree for sure!
