    Have you ever took a year off from hunting.

    Hunting 7 days does not count as taking a year off. I think half the people who wear camo these days probably hunt 7 days or less. This year i may dial it back, and only hunt twice per week until November.

    Should new and inexperienced hunters sit out the early season and wait for the rut?

    Pre-rut and rut activity can be hard to predict. Last year I took two weeks off work to hunt and the first was a complete waste, saw one deer from the stand all week. Luckily it all came together in the end. I think this year i am going to do more half days.

    Illegal Ladder Stands on Public Land

    stands don't reserve spots on public land. In general it is polite to hunt somewhere else if possible, but if the whole place is covered and you have no idea how often the person will be there, i would go ahead and hunt there. Now on the other hand, i have gotten very pissed when i legally...

    wide deadhead found

    I believe the buck died of natural causes. It was only about 30 yards off the edge of a field, so if it was shot there it would not have been hard to find. Of course, its possible it was a gut shot somewhere else, and traveled a long way before dying

    first saddle kill

    Well, it started out as a very tough year for me in that I made the same mistake I always do and hunted my tail off during the October lull, ending up very frustrated and wondering whether deer even exist. Even the first week of November was extremely slow (unseasonably warm in my area). I...

    Can I use 1'' aluminum tube from home depot?

    I am going to turn my three 32'' API sticks with three steps into four 24'' sticks with two steps. My question is, can I use the 1'' aluminum tube from home depot. They sell 96'' for $20. Or is the tube from eastman outdoors stronger? Thanks
