    Best Bow Sights: Find the Right Sight for Your Hunting Style-1

    by

    Nothing sets off a bowhunting camp debate like the mention of bow sights. Which is best—single, multi, or moveable? Check out a quick review of each and then decide which one is right for your hunting style.

    Single Pin: A one-pin setup sighted-in at 20 or 30 yards is a Southern bowhunting staple, and for good reason. The South’s whitetail woods are immensely thick, with shot distances rarely exceeding 30 yards. Single-pin setups eliminate multiple-pin confusion and provide an unrestricted sight window devoid of cluttered pins.

    University of Georgia Launches New Study on How Coyotes Effect Deer Behavior-1

    by

    In what many are calling the most unique coyote research of its kind, biologists at the University of Georgia have decided to take a fresh look at the effects of coyotes on whitetails. They will not necessarily be studying fawn predation or winterkill, but rather how coyote pressure impacts deer behavior. The results may just change the way we hunt. 

    Most deer watchers would agree, that high concentrations of coyotes have an effect on whitetail behavior. Deer living among high coyote concentrations act differently than deer living in relatively coyote-free environments. But precisely how? The researchers want to document these differences and find out the effects.

    They’ll be studying whitetails in two controlled environments, one with coyotes and one without and comparing the results.

    Deer Hunting: What to Do When Your Summer Buck Vanishes-1

    by

    As summer progresses, you perform due diligence, hanging and checking cameras around food sources to keep an eye on the local deer population. There’s one buck that keeps appearing like clockwork, and throughout the summer you’ve watched his antlers grow until he’s become a magnificent trophy. All you’re waiting on now is the arrival of hunting season. After that, it’s only a matter of time before the buck makes a mistake and shows up during daylight. Then, just as you get his routine down pat, he vanishes. What happened?

    First of all, don’t panic. You can still get your buck, but you may have to rethink your strategy to intercept him. Here are five key things to remember when a big deer goes AWOL.

    Whitetail Hunting: How to Keep Weeds Out of Your Fall Food Plots-0

    by

    In about 90 days, much of deer country will have its first frost. And believe it or not, you need to start preparing fall food plots now.  If you live in the North and are planting brassica, it should be in the ground in early August. This means cleaning up your planting site and getting rid of weeds now.

    Weeds are bad for fall food plots; real bad. They make seeding a messy, hit-or-miss proposition. Weeds crowd out freshly germinated plants and rob desirable deer forages of food, water, and sunlight.  Late summer weeds and grasses are public enemy #1 when it comes to fall food plots.

    Broadheads: Is Newer Really Better?-4

    by

    We’re all familiar with the phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” but that doesn’t seem to be a maxim that broadhead makers adhere to. For years now, every new batch of broadheads is packed with more blades, each meaner looking than the last. But I’m not convinced that they are any better.

    This spring, my wife was shooting a common three-blade broadhead out of her 50-pound compound for black bear, and although her shot placement was perfect, the arrow achieved hardly any penetration and didn’t kill the bear. This reminded me of the first bear I killed with a bow, a long bow, using the same broadheads. Although I got enough penetration (barely) to hit both lungs, I was not very impressed. After two incidents of bad penetration, it was time to switch things up.

    Best Hunting Bows: OL Reviews and Ranks 15 New Compound Bows for 2013-1

    by

    The hunting archery industry has had to face tremendous change recently, as consumers have become better educated, more selective, and less impulsive when it comes to buying bows. A simple color, camouflage, or name change will no longer cut it.

    Reacting to this new reality, manufacturers have refined their designs and concentrated on improving mechanical efficiencies in an effort to motivate an educated buyer to drop his money on a new bow.

    The evolution in industrial technology has trickled down, too, accelerating design improvements. The latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs put powerful design tools in the hands of creative engineers. Consumer sophistication continues to evolve as well, as new products are dissected and debated ad nauseam in internet chat rooms and in the public forum down at the pro shop.

    Deer Hunting: Set Trail Cameras Without Blowing Your Season -3

    by

    With whitetail season a few short months away, deer freaks everywhere are breaking out their deer gear. One of the first things they reach for is their scouting cameras. Little do they know, they just may be making the biggest blunder of the season.

    Scouting cameras are a great invention and many of us couldn’t hunt as well without them. But, unless used correctly, early season scouting with cameras can end your chances of taking a mature buck.
