Real Value

My trail cameras are not showing me anything that I want to hunt right now, so I’m waiting on getting into the woods. My goal every year is not to get tired, burnt out, or behind, before the best days of deer hunting get here. For me, those days begin about November 1st and run […]

Stay on the Porch

For the most part, I’ve never been afraid of dogs. There’s only been two times I’ve gotten bit, both by Chihuahuas. I think they both had some type of little-dog complex. But since deer hunters consistently go to and from their tree stand in the dark; if the neighbor or the local farmer has a […]

Always a Price to Pay

It’s beginning to feel a lot like deer season. The temperatures today will range from the mid-sixties to the mid-seventies. Days like these are sure to get me rubbin’ and ruttin’. Even though the season is open in one of my border states, I still don’t get too excited until I can see my breath […]

Sowing Seeds

I just finished putting in a food plot for the upcoming deer season. I have always enjoyed getting on a tractor and preparing the soil for seed. This year, instead of tilling the ground, I simply ran my disc harrow over it several times until I had turned up enough dirt to uproot what was […]

The government gives us statistics on the participation of hunting and fishing. The numbers that come from the federal government only include those 16 and older, while each state will refine the number down to every license sold. A few years ago, those over 16 years of age who fished or hunted (or both), totaled […]

I just came back from another great opportunity to speak to some hunters and fishermen in central Kentucky. For nearly a decade Terry and his volunteers have been hosting an expo. In fact, I spoke at the first one. Terry and his team rent the local high school and bring in vendors and groups from […]

Use it or Lose It

I’m not one of those professional archers who shoot their bow year-round. I am a hunter who must wipe the dust off of it during this time of year. I know this is the period where I have to begin shooting in order to feel comfortable in various hunting situations when deer season comes about. […]

Take His Word For It

Even though it’s still summer, the deer hunters are getting prepared for another season. While it may be a few weeks until the season opens, there is much to do in order to be ready for opening day – especially if you hunt with a bow. Right now I’m checking trail cameras, hanging tree stands […]

Superstitions

(This week’s “Truth” comes from my Father/Son Devotional book. Pick yours up on the Outdoor Truths Website.) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Phil 4:13 NLT) Son, each sport has its own unique skills that it takes to perform. The best athletes are gifted with a special ability and with […]

Nature’s Clues

I say the same thing every year at this time. “It’s hot!” I guess it’s supposed to be, but this year seems to be especially dry and excessively hot. Outside work is relegated to early mornings and late evenings, and I hate that! If you just look outside from the comfort of your own living […]
