We have selected a new winner for a Surefire flashlight, Brad Duncan of Manitoba. He wrote a great story about predator hunting on the Manitoba prairie. You can read it here: Predator Hunting on the Manitoba Prairie
Note: we still plan on switching to Slingstix for a while in the near future.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
