Hunting Diary

  • 3’s A Charm

    This is the 3rd mature buck that I have shot from an Ameristep Ground Blind, and to think I use to shun the thought of sitting in a ground blind. I have become a believer! We had been getting a few trailcam pics of this buck during the beginning of the season but had yet to lay our eyes on him. All the sign was there, the rubs the scrapes and the pictures we just had not got the timing right. I knew… read more »

  • Gun Deer Season- WI

    I got up opening morning and was excited to go sit on my mom’s family farm.  We wished dad luck because he would be hunting with my Grandpa.  We loaded up my Thompson Center and drove to Grandma’s to have breakfast with the rest of the family.  After a good breakfast we headed out to our stand.  When we first got into the stand we sat for about 30 minutes before we saw… read more »

  • Alberta Monster Buck

Got some pics in the next couple days and a couple missed opportunities. The land he was on had lots of hunting pressure so I had the Thompson Center omega and Hoyt with me. Was sitting amongst bales, was covered in does when I noticed him standing in the edge of the bush. Behind… read more »

  • Iowa Muzzleloader

    As a 46 year old boy from Illinois, I’m not quite sure why it took me this long to chase Iowa whitetails…especially since I can see Iowa from my back deck.  The excitement started earlier in the year when a friend and I got word that we had been selected to hunt deer during the late muzzleloader season. Our first trip to the Cianciarulo farm in southwest Iowa began in mid-December. … read more »

  • River bottoms to alfalfa fields!

      Every year in September I plan a trip out west to hunt elk, mule deer or antelope. This year I am headed to eastern Montana with fellow Posse member David Wozniak to hunt those river bottom whitetails..  We are hunting with Powder river outfitters and let me tell you they have the animals!!!  It didn't take long for me to fall in love with the Cottonwood lined river bottoms that… read more »
