    For years I have wanted to go hunting in a slough off a local river. The problem - the area is blocked by lily pads from spring until after the first couple of frost. The area is so far off the beaten path, chances are very few, if anyone hunts the area. No camping is allowed in the area, and...

    Anyone plant a food plot for deer and other wildlife? I got the tractor out, hooked the disk up, disked up around the feeder, then threw out around 25 pounds of oats and rye grass. A week ago I bought a 50 pound bag of oats, and a 50 pound bag of rye grass. I threw out around half a bag of...

    Here in Texas deer feeders are legal. I know some states prohibit them. This video was taken on the back of the farm. Deer are in the area, I just use the feeder to get them to stand still. The feeder holds around 300 pounds of corn, and uses a 6 volt battery. Nothing special, but it gets...

    What would you consider to the best whitetail deer cartridge for shooting less than 100 yards? Let's say 50 - 75 yards. Southeast Texas, whitetail deer. Handgun cartridges are acceptable. I was thinking either a 357 or 44 magnum lever action. Then again, why not just go with the 30-30...

    Some of us either own, or know someone who owns property in a rural area. If you do, is it possible to develop wildlife habitat on or around that property? We are talking squirrel, deer, raccoon and rabbit habitat. January 2017 Several years ago a lot of the pine trees were cut off the...

    With the innovation newer cartridges, is the 30-30 Winchester obsolete? This question arises from comments on a youtube video I made about stockpiling ammo. A John Rambo commented: I respectfully disagree. I have seen first hand time and time again what the 30-30 Winchester does to...

    I'm getting ready to move to Wisconsin and I'm planning on deer hunting this year. I can only afford to buy one long gun prior to hunting season. If anyone has any advice on why one would be better than the other, please let me know. Here are the three I'm considering: Remington 870: I can pick...

    Well the rifle season is here and I didn't get to go, grrr. However, my husband and FIL went to our ranch this morning to hunt. My husband told me to come too, but I see no need in taking 3 deer right off of the bat. I don't want to deplete the herd there. I told them if they did not get a deer...

    Here in southeast Texas we have about 2 weeks until bow season starts, and about 7 weeks until rifle season starts. Over the past few weeks my wife and I have been going to the lease to spread beans and oats, and to check on the feeders. My family and I have 4 feeders and 5 stands setup. One...

    We went to the lease for Youth weekend and had a great time. I told her Friday evening this was her weekend and she could shoot what she wanted to. We got in the stand Saturday morning and as soon as the feeder went off deer were everywhere. We had a lot of activity throughout the morning. About...

    Anybody else got buck fever yet? I got the new sportsmansguide and Cabela's fall catalogs and can't wait for this deer season! A good friend of mine just bought 100 acres of wooded property in northern Wisconsin with lots of deer located near a nice lake. I'm hopefully getting a new .308 rifle...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    Season drawing to an end? Have not taken a deer yet? If you play your cards right, there is no reason not to get a deer towards the end of deer season. Here in Texas regular rifle season has passed and we are now in muzzleloader and youth season. Youth season is for anyone age 16 and under to...

    I'am having problems with the front sight post of my DS Arms SA58 in low light. By "low light" I mean duck and dawn times - when the deer are moving. What I have noticed, in low light the post of the front sight fades in with the darkness - making it difficult to see. I got my new SA58 a few...

    Friday evening my kids and I talked about if we wanted to go hunting Saturday morning and Saturday evening, or just Saturday evening. The agreement was made to go just Saturday evening – in part because we had a birthday party to go to at noon. Saturday morning rolls around, we sleep a...
