Sunday November, 16th started no differently than any other morning. I got settled into my stand 15 minutes prior to legal shooting light, bundled up to fight off the below freezing temps. Roughly a half hour later I hear it; the tell tale sign of deer chasing. Although the ... [More]

November 6th, found me sitting in a familiar lock on locally after arriving back home the night before from camp. The action down south at camp was pretty slow. I was seeing a lot of other hunters and some bucks but nothing impressive so I decided to come home for a couple days to check the action... [More]

I finally gave in and got a pack of the Rage 2 blade broadheads....
You just cannot ignore the overwhelmingly positive reports on their performance... Hearing one person tout a product is one thing, but these heads have been t... [More]

I must say, the padded seats that used to come with the Lone Wolf Sit and Climb are perhaps the most uncomfortable seat on a climbing tree stand I have sat in for years.... The thin nylon straps underneath the old seat dug into the back of my legs through the rather thin paddi... [More]

As I sift through my gear preparing my equipment for this autumns archery season, I notice some items I no longer use.... Some great gear that I got good use out of but for some reason or another I replaced it along the way with something else, or just retired it... [More]

It is almost that time..... I am now exactly one month away from Ohio's 2008-2009 bow opener. The anticipation has been building and last evening I got another shot of adrenaline while pulling out of a gas well access road after checking a game cam. Across the road in a very lush and green soy... [More]
