4110 people drew Maine moose tags in 2013 out of 52,000 applicants. 10% are set aside for non-residents of Maine and God is good - after 10 years of applying I drew a cow tag for zone 4 in November! woo hoo!

New Hampshire also released their moose permit winner information:

So, I’ve gathered an extensive network of brother hunters all over the country. From Alaska, down the west coast- all of the way to the east coast. And yes, even Texas.

The old saying is that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Well – there is more than one way to dress a turkey. Some folks just pull the breasts off and leave the rest of the bird for the coyotes, but that seems wasteful to me. When we roast a whole turkey whether it is a Butterball or wild bird, the breasts make the main course of at least one meal and most of the remaining meat gets used for turkey sandwiches the next day while the bones are stewed into stock for future use as turkey soup.

Sitting Bull is famously quoted as saying "I will remain what I am until I die, a hunter, and when there are no buffalo or other game I will send my children to hunt and live on prairie mice.

If you are a hunter, you know exactly what he meant.  Peter Hathaway Capstick reasoned that there is biological proof that humans evolved as hunters.  He explained herbivores (prey animals) have eyes on opposite sides of their head to better watch against danger.  But all hunting mammals have forward facing eyes with which we focus on the prey ahead while stalking and pursuing them when they flee.

Our lives would be incomplete without the hunt.  Yet there are times when the hunt must pause.  Game laws and closed seasons protect against over hunting.  New York’s spring turkey season ended yesterday.  It is a long wait until the September goose season and even longer until we can pursue cotton tails and white tails in the fall.  I used to find this wait almost unbearable.  I would feel frustration seeing deer casually browsing in the summer fields.  I filled my evenings with reading about other’s hunts and longing for a chance to get back in the field.

The peep sight has become an almost universal accessory on modern compound bows, spawning a myriad of designs on the market today. However a common denominator among all of the current peeps is that they require you to pick a fixed peep aperture. TruGlo is changing up how hunters think about their peep with the introduction of the new Versa Peep for 2012.

Quivers are one of those bow must have accessories during a long, especially pack in hunt. Arrows get lost, bent, or otherwise damaged and it's not always easy to just pack it back and get a few more arrows. On the downside, when selecting a quiver a hunter has to decide between weight and capacity of the quiver. More capacity helps with having more arrows in reserve, but that just adds more total weight to the bow. If you have ever had this dilemma, Fuse Archery has a new quiver called the "Switch" that might just be what you are looking for in a new quiver.

Archery can be a difficult sport, especially with huge obstacles. People use a variety of techniques to make it work for them. Jeff Fabry uses a very different technique than most. He was injured in a motorcycle accident when he was 15 years old, losing an arm and leg. His friends would go out to hunt, and he was not able to join them. Some people would give up, but not Jeff.

Jeff designed a mouthpiece so that he could use his mouth to draw back the bow. It was all trial and error, but he found a way to make it work for him. He designed the mouthpiece from a nylon dog leash.
