Often shocking, sometimes funny, but always true animal attack stories.
On Thanksgiving morning last year Dennie Bowman tagged a big buck just after daybreak in northern North Carolina. But Bowman quickly realized the buck wasn’t the 8-point he expected. The whitetail turned out to be a mature spike with a pair of two-foot long tines. Bluff Country Boys Outdoor TV recently posted this photo of Bowman’s bizarre buck, and we caught up with him to hear about the hunt. [ Read Full Post ]
El Chupacabra strikes again. Maybe. This time on a Victoria County ranch in South Texas.

Consider this a formal invitation: Come to Lansing, Michigan next weekend to say hi and ask me any question you have.
You can ask about Outdoor Life’s history and evolution. You can ask about John Snow’s stinky feet. You can ask about my favorite deer rifle, or my go-to coyote call. Or you can ask me about how an inarticulate Midwestern kid got to be the editor of your favorite outdoors magazine. [ Read Full Post ]
There were a lot of cool looking bucks at the Deer and Turkey Expo in Illinois last weekend, but this one was definitely the most unique. Scott Setzer was hunting his go-to stand last October when he spotted the gnarly rack coming his way. [ Read Full Post ]
Rising medical costs, long waits in the emergency room, Obamacare glitches...
Ha! Those medical care problems might sound bad, but they're not nearly as bad as a leopard.
Authorities closed schools in Meerut, India Sunday after a leopard was spotted (Oh, that’s a bad pun) wandering city streets. The animal roamed through a hospital – where it mauled a photographer sent to cover the scene – a market, apartment complex, and a cinema as authorities tried to catch the big cat. [ Read Full Post ]

Anyone who’s come across one knows what Fred Bear meant a half century ago when he said that the thrill of tangling with a grizzly bear cleanses the soul. It’s an experience that relatively few people on this earth will have and that none who do will ever forget.
When you live and spend a lot of time hunting in Alaska, your odds of eventually having an encounter with a grizzly drift more toward the “guaranteed” end of the spectrum. Some of my most exciting have happened while hunting black bears over bait. I’ve been charged by a sow with cubs and have had bears huff at me from the brush as I walked to my stand. And I had a large boar walk to within 3 feet of my rifle muzzle. [ Read Full Post ]
Even though 11-year-old Coe Klauer brought in one of the best bucks to the Illinois Deer and Turkey Expo last weekend, a lot of people felt bad for him - or at least they said they did.
They said they felt sorry for the kid because he had shot his "buck of a lifetime" at age 11. Now, any buck he shoots would likely be smaller (his buck netted 163 2/8). What does he have to hunt for? [ Read Full Post ]
