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!

9 Pt. Indiana Archery Buck
Julie Manning-Dooley
On Wednesday 10/22/08 I was late getting into the woods at about 5:45 pm. I did not use a treestand. I found a couple nice rubs and decided to stand in front of a big oak tree that was on the edge of a hill. I decided to do the fawn bleet call as I had used that a couple days prior and called in several does and a button buck. It was windy so when the wind would stop I would get a chance to use the call.
19 Pt. Tennessee Deer
Kelvin N. Jones
It was the second weekend of bowhunting this year, 2008. I had moved my stand the previous weekend to a more select spot which was deeper in a swamp on the Wolf River. I had been in my stand since 6:00 am and it was creeping up on 9:30, nothing but squirrels and one lone opossum to get my attention so far. Scanning the area watching for any movement I locked on one opening in the tree line.
Rhode Island Deer Hunt
Kyle A. Cloutier
My father has been teaching me how to hunt since I was little. Already this season he had taken 2 bucks. The first one he took on Saturday opening day, with his muzzleloader and the second he took on Monday, with his bow. He had been teasing me all week that I was going to be eating pasta while he chomped down on tasty venison. Well that was about to change.
Minnesota Twin Albino Deer
Tim Roeschlein
These twin albino deer have been coming to my backyard feeder since they were fawns in 2006. They turned 2 years old this spring and still come to my feeder every day! I'm an avid deer hunter and harvesting albino deer in Minnesota is legal.
First Time Deer Hunt in Saskatchewan
Shane Sydoruk
It was the morning of Nov 24, 2007. Having discussed the night before that Coralee would have first shooting rights if we saw anything we liked, we set out for what would be one exciting morning that would carry out to the day I'm writing this. As we set out in the morning there was a light fog hovering in the air. We went out to one of my favorite spots north of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan.
Long Island, New York 9-Pointer
Joseph J. Pagano aka: jpcomputers
I arrowed this tall monster 11 (9 Scorable) point buck while hunting in Ridge, Long Island, New York on October 20th, 2007. I'd seen him twice the week before that early damp morning. The first time I saw him I was hunting from a ground blind. The next thing I knew he was running straight to me with my back turned towards him. I heard him stop abruptly which made me stand still. Not knowing if it was a buck or a doe behind me, I waited about 30 seconds before turning around and there he was. As I motioned to turn, he ran off about 45 yards from me.
