Wife's First Hunt
numbnutz ( Josh )

I talked my wife into going hunting with me last spring, She had never been before and was kind of nervous about it. I bought her a bow and we spent the summer going to the range and practicing. Finally August 27th came and we headed out of town to my spot in the starkey unit in northeast Oregon (I've been hunting there for 10 years). We got camp set up and then we set up a 3d target to shoot a little bit. Just as we thought our bows were still shooting dead on.

Mikey is Something Special
Ohio Bowhunter

This is an incredible story that began back in 2005 and I want to share it with all.

The story is about a kid nicknamed Mikey who touched my life in a profound way like no other.

The Red Morning Deer

It was Nov 25th,  as my brother and I grabbed my gear out of my truck with lots of excitement! It's the late season, with crusty snow on the ground, crisp, cold -10 degree air being blown in my face from the North, "perfect" I said to myself. We are about to stalk our way to a set of timber that we have planned to hunt for the past 2 months. After scouting the area once again just 3 days ago with my brother in a bitter, windy, snowing, cold, and awesome winter storm, I realized, the time is now! This section of woods is ready to be hunted.

One Crazy Day of Doe Hunting!

It was early October, 2005, and it was 88 degrees. I said to my son let's see if we can take out a couple of does this evening. We got out to our stands and amazingly we spooked several deer around 3 o'clock. Right around 3:30 I heard my son shoot his bow and he yelled over and said he has one down. So, I went over to him. We tracked her and she was only about 60 yards away.

Ohio Deer: My Son's Biggest Buck

It was the morning of November 6th, 2004. I had to work the night before but I knew the morning would be good. I had my son stay out at his grandma's and told him he needed to be in our favorite stand before it got light and I would meet him out there after work.

November 4th Was a Good One

November 4th of 07' was a good morning for deer hunting. My son and I decided to go to 2 of our favorite stands. I got up into my stand about a 1/2 hour before shooting light. A few minutes after I got settled into my stand I already began to hear deer moving. Although I couldn't see them they were moving pretty good.

My 09' Ohio Buck

I work midnights and it was going to be one of the first colder mornings of the year. I was hoping to get off work early. It was October 20th and there were several scrapes in this one particular area I hunt in. I didn't get off as early as I planned but I did manage to get off in just enough time to hurry home and get out to the stand.

The Round Bail Buck

Over the years of hunting nothing seems to surprise me any more. Just when you thought you’ve seen it all something even more bizarre happens, that’s the greatest thing about the outdoors. When real life can become stranger than fiction.

This buck was taken years back in 2005 and turned out to be very memorable. We spent a long morning of walking and it was a cold November day seeing very few animals and all the bucks were below par. Now the middle of the day we decided to drive home have some lunch, warm up and plan where the evening hunt would take us.

What Ever Happened to the Love of the Hunt?
Brett Homer

Now-a-days when someone mentions deer hunting, most thoughts will automatically think big bucks. It seems the days of being excited about just shooting "a deer" is left to being only good enough for our youth. Back in the day, I personally remember it used to be that when hunters gathered together at the end of the day’s hunt.
