20 Steps to Tranquility
Daniel Burt
This treestand is on three acres of land, and it has served its purpose for twenty plus years, I have taken more deer out of this tree than a lotta of peaple have seen in the woods. But the true story is about the stand itself. No matter how tough life gets, bills, jobs, money, sicknesses, etc for three months of the year when I hit the top step, sit down, listen to the sounds of the woods, hear the crunch of leaves as that buck passes close by, I forget all the problems I have. We should all be thankful for the woods that God has gave us! So the next time you go hunting just look around - you will be amazed!
Michigan Father and Son Hunt

These are a few of the pictures of the best hunt of my life.
Michigan Buck
Joe Reed
Joe Reed shot this buck in Dowagiac Michigan November 16, 2004 with a 12 gauge.
Big Michigan Black Bear
Tom McCarthy
I shot this black bear September 27 2004 near Newberry, Michigan. It dressed out at 546 pounds and the DNR believes its live weight was well over 600 pounds. Our hunt was assisted by bear hounds.
The Cornfield Buck
Wayne E. Helland Jr.
I have been scouting year round for many years to accommodate my fall hunting time in order to ensure my success for the largest buck I can find. During 2003 I located three different bucks that would gross score over 150. After years of practicing quality deer management, this was my best year ever for locating big bucks.
Michigan Coyote Hunting
Bud Lawson
This coyote is one of forty that I took with a group of hunters in February of 2003. We hunt in west Michigan, mostly with 22-250 rifles and some 12 gauge shotguns. It was a good winter with just the right amount of snow, using the snow we look for tracks going into a section and put someone on the tracks. It is fun but not always successful.
Arenac County Buck
H. E. Hollow
We don't see many photos of whitetail from Arenac County, Michigan. This buck was taken on the morning of 11/18/2003 during the rifle season. A nice eight point that will end up shoulder mounted and displayed at the camp.
Rainy Day Buck
Wayne E. Helland Jr.
It started out during late July of 2004 with a buck sighting by my dad (Wayne Sr.) Dad was visiting with us one evening and left shortly before dark. After a few minutes he was back telling me of an extremely large buck he had seen. His exact words were, "This buck was huge! He was in the middle of the field and I could see his rack with my naked eye and it looked like he had a lot of points."
Thank You Northwest Wind
Wayne E. Helland Jr.
The morning of Wednesday, 10/17/01 dawned cool and crisp. I checked the weather channel to determine my hunting strategy. The wind was blowing from the northwest at last! This was the opportunity I had been waiting for.
