The clove hitch excels in all kinds of outdoor applications. It's great anytime you need to quickly tie a rope to something – a tree, tent pole, fence post, truck hitch, hunting buddy.
I use it to anchor my pack rope to the sawbucks on a packsaddle. It enables me to sling elk quarters on my pack horse and never worry about them slipping off. Best of all, it’s easy to tie. Once you learn the technique, you can tie it in the dark, and without even thinking about it. [ Read Full Post ]
Three deer and two dogs broke into a middle school in Lothian, Md. early Monday morning, leading officials to cancel classes and causing up to $5,000 in damages.
This surveillance footage from Southern Middle School shows a deer crashing through a glass entrance door into the school lobby around 4 a.m. Two deer race inside and a third deer follows, scrambling across the floor. One of the three charges the glass doors and bounces off before turning and fleeing deeper into the building. It’s either an escape attempt or a last-ditch effort to scare away the dog on the other side of the glass.

We’ve seen hunters rescue several locked bucks. In the most cases, buck's rival is already dead from exhaustion or coyote predation. This video was shot last month by 29-year-old Kansas hunter Evan McAnally, who came across the bucks while checking his game cameras in Stafford County.
A tangle of antlers on the ground caught his attention and further inspection revealed the remains of a half-eaten buck locked with another deer. He assumed they were both dead. As McAnally approached, the intact buck rose and tried to walk away, reports the Kansas City Star. McAnally set his cell phone in a bush to record the rescue attempt. After trying unsuccessfully to unhook the antlers by hand, he retrieves a saw from his truck. [ Read Full Post ]
