Split Tine Buck

When my alarm went off at 5:05am I contemplated staying in my warm bed and sleeping in. The weather had been warm and moon had been full only a week before so it was still fairly bright in the night. Consequently, the deer were not moving much in the mornings. I decided that since the… Continue Reading →

Ohio Public Land Sleeping Beauty

My father and I have traveled from mid-PA to southeast Ohio for the last three years. We only hunt on public property. No guides, no bait, just us and some topo maps. On the morning of Nov. 4th, 2012 I set up shop near a water hole. After a series of grunts and rattles, I… Continue Reading →

2012 Iowa Whitetail

After 4 years of patiently waiting, I was able to again draw 1 of Iowa’s highly prized non-resident archery tags. My good friend Rodger and I finally arrived on November 2nd after the long 19 hour drive from our PA home. The pay-off couldn’t be more sweet though when I was able to harvest my… Continue Reading →

TN 10 Point, Shot with the Z7 Xtreme

After having trail cameras out throughout the summer and only getting a dozen pictures of a couple of real nice shooter bucks on the property, I wasn’t exactly sure where to even start hunting the 2012/2013 TN bow season.

On September 7, I was rushing to get home after work so I could pick my friend… Continue Reading →

On the morning of November 12, 2011, I looked down over my left shoulder and saw this giant buck comming down the trail! I had just enough time to reach up and grab my Mathews Drenalin bow just as the big buck stepped out from behind a large oak tree! With no time to stand… Continue Reading →

Best Archery Buck to Date

It was just before the close of legal shooting time. I was perched 25 feet up in a massive oak on an old logging road. The old road sits between an abandoned farmstead with a small bean field and a brushy bedding area. I had been watching several does and fawns grazing their way across… Continue Reading →


Trophy Season

Mathews truly is the best compound bow on the market. I had the most incredible season in 2011 beginning on opening day of the Wild Bison hunt near Jackson, Wyoming. I drew a coveted Type 1 bison bull or cow priority # 53 in the spring of 2011. Up to this time I have hunted… Continue Reading →


My Hēlim Moment

I GOT THE NEW HēLIM BACK IN APRIL AND STARTED SHOOTING IT RIGHT AWAY. I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LIGHT AND FAST IT WAS. The more I shot it, the closer my groups were getting. Finally today, while shooting my first set of arrows, I heard a load noise and when I went to check my… Continue Reading →

Berven is Back!

  Two weeks before we went hunting we set up the bear baits hoping to draw in a good number of bears and get them used to the bait sites. The week we headed up for hunting, we sadly realized that our one baits we call Berven Bait hadn’t been touched by bears let alone… Continue Reading →
