From the first time he saw the monster grizzly, Tyler Freel knew that his fate would be intertwined with the boar's. A story of hardship and belief.

This video comes from Garrett Brothers Outfitting and is a great example of just how strong black bears really are. The young bear scales a tree and then hangs on the rope for way longer than what we expect.
The quote at the end of the video says it all: "That was amazing, eh?" [ Read Full Post ]
Many things contribute to a well-executed shot with a traditional bow, but one important factor is how you grasp the handle or “grip” the bow. A traditional bow calls for a different grip and form than a compound bow. There can be a petty steep learning curve for guys who have shot compounds for years and want to try hunting with a recurve for the added challenge. [ Read Full Post ]
You can hunt coyotes for a long time and never call in six to one set. The shooting is impressive except for at the end when you can tell the guys are a little over excited.

Hunters know that nature can be pretty brutal, and this video confirms it.
The two 9-year-old dominant male lions attacked and killed a younger male lion who got caught chasing a buffalo into their territory.
According to the video description, the footage was shot on the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.
I'm not a trained deer scorer, but working for Outdoor Life I see a ton of bucks each season and it's our job to track down their story. Part of that involves getting the score. By running down these trophy bucks each year, I thought I had a pretty good handle on eyeing up a buck and estimating its score.
But then I spent three days hanging out behind the scenes in the scorers' room and the Deer and Turkey Expo in Illinois. There were about 11 official scorers measuring hundreds of trophy bucks for the big buck competition. Most of the time I could eye up a typical buck and get within 10 or so points of its score. But some bucks absolutely threw me for a loop.
I found out that when an average deer hunter (like me) eyes up a buck and estimates its score, many times he'll end up way, way off. For example, the two bucks in the photo above. The buck on the left is clearly carrying more bone than the one on the right. He has heavier antlers, and it seems that he has higher tines. He should have a higher score, right? [ Read Full Post ]
Editor’s Note: Outdoor Life writers are on assignment in Branson, Missouri for Quality Deer Management Association’s first-ever Whitetail Summit. Over the next two days, we’ll be reporting from the numerous break-out sessions to give you the inside-scoop on the issues most critical to deer hunters. Check back regularly as we update this live blog.
Thursday, 1:30 PM: A Hunter’s Perspective of the North American Deer Summit
The majority of attendees at the North American Deer Summit had a professional stake in being there. State game biologists, industry manufactures, conservation organization leaders, outdoor media, and more make at least a portion of their living from work related to white-tailed deer. One group of attendees though, had no dog in the fight other than being deer hunters. Rob Muirhead was one of them.
Rob Muirhead is from Elm Creek, Neb., and he’s been deer hunting for 24 years. His uncle introduced to the sport that has become a life passion. He’s independently employed in the automotive paintless dent repair industry. Meaning, he fixes hail damage on vehicles. This profession allows him the flexibility to take deer hunting seriously.
