Virginia Hunter Takes Monster Piebald Buck

December 17, 2013

Brandon Seward sent us these photos of a slammer piebald buck from his family farm in Wakefield, Virginia. A piebald buck is fairly rare, but what makes this deer interesting is how big it is. Most of the piebald photos that come across my desk show spike bucks or forks. In his own words, here's how Brandon's hunt went down…

    Big Buck Alert: Iowa Whitetail Could Challenge Archery World Record-2

    by

    We’ve seen some giant bucks tagged this season, but this massive typical bowkill from Iowa may prove the biggest yet. We haven’t heard much about the hunter or his world-class buck yet, but rumors suggest we could be looking at a new world record. Here’s what we know so far.

    This photo was posted publicly to Facebook as early as Nov. 19. The user who published it heard the buck was shot near the town of Frankville in Winneshiek County, Iowa. Details from an email shared with Heartland Outdoors blogger Tim Walmsley also suggest the monster was killed in northeast Iowa.

    According to Walmsley and Scott Bestul of Field & Stream, the buck reportedly measured 206 inches. There’s no word yet on whether that’s a gross or net score. To unseat the current Pope and Young Club typical archery world record, this mystery buck would need to beat the reigning 204 4/8-inch Illinois stud taken by Mel Johnson in 1965. Johnson harvested his first-place buck with a recurve bow in Peoria County, Ill.

    Late-season hunts are all about finding food sources and hunting them. It's also about hunting soft and quiet. Late-season bucks are basically recuperating from two months of intense activity and that means plenty of food and plenty of bedding behavior. Sure, you may catch a little late season breeding activity, but the smart money is on the food. Any breeding that occurs will basically be a random event.

    by

    The Second Rut: Media Myth or Biological Reality?-1

    by

    To hear some hunters talk, you'd swear the rut plays out twice. We have the regular rut sometime in mid-November and a second, albeit lesser rut, sometime in December. Truth is, however, that it doesn't quite play out that way.

    The so-called second rut isn't a rut at all—it's just the occasional breeding event so to speak. There is no significant ramp up of buck activity. By mid-December most bucks are plenty shy and not about to take too many chances. Will they breed an estrus doe if one shows up in their neck of the woods? Sure. Will they march around in a fog of testosterone to find one? Hardly.

    Texas Teenager Takes Monster 23-point Buck, Sets a Youth Record-0

    by

    Last month 15-year-old Makayla Hay harvested this record-breaking buck in Madison County, Tex. Most other local hunters had hoped to tag the buck themselves, but Makayla took this gnarly bruiser minutes before sunrise on opening day.

    The buck scored more than 200 inches and should become the second largest ever taken in the county. The Hay buck is also slated to join the Texas Big Game Awards as the largest free-range whitetail ever harvested by a youth in Texas.

    Huge Maine Buck: 33-Inch Spread-0

    by

    When Isaac Grindle's buck hit the leaves in Knox County, Maine, last month, he expected to walk up on an eight-pointer. Instead, the 21-year-old discovered a bruiser with one of the largest spreads ever seen in the state. The buck's unusually wide rack measured a whopping 33 inches and could rank third for the largest nontypical spread ever recorded in Maine.

    Whitetails This Weekend: Focus On Food And Weather-0

    by

    With the rut officially over, it's time to shift to hunting food sources and keeping your eye on the Weather Channel. Late-season bucks are recuperating from two months of intense activity and that means food and rest. The wildcard in the equation is severe winter weather which will force them into daytime feeding activity.

    Is It OK to Hunt the Line?-8

    by

    You head into the woods to do some early season scouting and find a strange stand set right on your property line. No, they aren’t trespassers; and no, it’s not one of your hunting buddies. It’s the neighbor’s new son-in-law who married his way onto the property. His stand is set 3 feet on his side of the line. This stand will ruin your spot. It’s time to call the law, or is it?

    I get calls and e-mails every year from hunters who get worked up over this kind of thing. They ask us for advice, but short of suggesting they have a friendly chat with the neighbor, legally there is little they can do.
