So spend any time on social media you quickly realize the flood which is the innumerable pro-staffers, field staff, promotional staff, representatives or ambassadors exist everywhere you look. Sally Mae from Ohio posts incessantly about that new illuminated nock to ad nauseam…and don’t get me started on Joe Blow from Michigan that appears to use that one company’s urine scent line so much I wouldn’t be shocked if he said it works great as an after shave!
I recently reached out and asked folks to bring up topics or raise questions they were curious what my thoughts were on. One such follower brought up the incredibly important topic of people choosing food plots over bedding, and if I had any thoughts on it?
Boy do I ever! You have already no doubt read the title of this post, so I’m sure you know the general direction of my thoughts, but why? Let's discuss the 3 main reasons I feel everyone overstates the importance of food plots and ignores how...
It was my first buck ever harvested…my first bow kill ever…and still one of the biggest bucks I’ve ever taken…and I DESPISE the pictures we took. As I sit here and type this regret rushes back through me that I have zero photos worthy of that memory captured, and this isn't something you get second chances to do over.
It is said a picture is worth a thousand words and can tap a thousand emotions; let’s ensure that all those words and emotions are good ones. No matter what the age of the hunter or...

Now I understand as I type this many of those reading this in the Midwest or Northern parts of this great country have already broken ground and broadcast seed most likely. However, on the chance you have not done so or find yourself in the portion of the country where you are preparing to break ground take note because I do not want you to make the mistakes thousand are or will very soon.
You see I'm of the mindset if you are taking the time to put in a food plot, this whole deer hunting thing i...
We spend, or should at least, countless time and hours into making sure we are fine tuned shooting specimens. Our bows are tuned, our broad heads are flying true and we are confident from elevated positions or on the ground, sitting or standing.
However, what if I told you the most crucial aspect of the shot doesn’t involve your bow, your arrow or even yourself directly?
What if I told you the most crucial part of a successful shot is everything which occurs afte...
“Merry Christmas,” the wife smiled and half yelled-half mocked to me as I walked out to the living room this past Saturday. It was October 1st and that meant the bow hunting opener in Indiana.my “Christmas.”
I smiled, started brewing some coffee and immediately caught myself instinctively looking outside reading the weather and was happy I’d made the decision to wait till the afternoon for the first hunt of the year. It was wet and rainy and storms were scheduled to continue till around lunch…not...
Man, life simply moves far too fast sometimes. It's been forever since I've set down and timed a blog entry here on the website...many valid reasons why but none of that matters at the moment let's delve straight in! Where we find ourselves currently:
The new property I closed on in early Spring came with a lot of unknowns, neither my father or I had any idea for what its potential for this first year would be....then these photos started rolling in:
