Deer Hunting Blogs

I just wanted to say it is an honor to be mentioned with some of the great whitetail deer hunting blogs like Outdoor Life’s Big Buck Zone, Field & Stream’s Whitetail 365, Deer & Deer Hunting, Wired To Hunt, Wired Outdoors,  and Sole Adventure. They all are really good whitetail deer hunting blogs and we love visiting and reading all of them. I have been following Field & Stream and Outdoor Life and Deer & Deer Hunting for many years and Whitetail 365 and Big Buck Zone and Deer & Deer Hunting  are some of my favorites.

When I started DeerHuntingBigBucks.com 7 years ago I had no idea what I was getting into I just knew deer hunting was my passion and being able to write about it is just a dream come true. There is just something about watching that sunrise on a cold frosty November morning and hearing the sounds of nature come alive as the sun comes up. A successful hunt is not always defined by getting big bucks, success could just be seeing that big smile on your sons face after he sees his first deer in the wild. Stuff like that makes writing a whitetail deer hunting blog worth every late night of hard work worth it.

Monster Bucks Make Classic Impressive

The annual Monster Buck Classic We Are Kansas deer hunting extravaganza was a great show and yes there were plenty of Kansas monster bucks .

Monster Bucks

The doors opened Friday afternoon at the ExpoCentre in Topeka on January 26, 2014 to a good crowd of avid deer hunters and vendors and it was a fun filled weekend. With the name Monster Buck Classic the deer hunting show lived up to it’s name and there were plenty of big Kansas brutes to be seen.

The Monster buck contest had some awesome entries and there was a new King of Kansas non-typical crowned as Lucas Cochren’s 238 4/8″ King of Kansas Non-Typical fell to the a non-typical buck taken by Cade Hays with a net score of 239 7/8″, a small 1 and 1/8 inches difference! Both are awesome bucks.

There was so many great venders this year with some really cool hunting products. I saw so many good deer hunting products and will definitely be getting a few of them to get ready for next season. One of my favorite products was the INFERNOEPS™ element protection system. It is a cold weather suit that easily makes into a backpack and I tell you I was impressed with all the features. Hopefully I will be able to do a product review on this bad boy, very nice. If you get a chance go by and check out INFERNOTEK.

It was nice to get to know some of them a little and talk deer hunting. And one of my favorite events was the celebrity bow shoot. Dan Thurston, Matt Duff, Mike Hunsucker and the Heartland Bowhunter crew all did some great shooting with there bows. Matt Duff did great even though he borrowed someone else’s bow to shoot.

We had a great time at the Monster buck Classic this year and look forward to another great show next year. I’m already getting ready for next deer season and plan on doing all I can to get a big Kansas brute with my bow on film and hopefully he’ll be big enough to take one of the King of Kansas crowns. I might as well dream big!

 

Shed Hunting Snow Monster Buck Classic

shed hunting antler

I found this antler shed hunting.

I need to get back out  shed hunting after all this snow is gone and look for more. I recently got out and did a little shed hunting and was lucky enough to find one nice shed in a cut bean field.

Shed Hunting

I have heard of several really nice sheds being found and I hope to find a few in the next couple of weeks. Last year I didn’t find a single shed and I did a lot of walking. For some reason the properties I hunt don’t seem to have very many sheds every  year. Shed hunting is a lot of fun and it is nice to find sheds of deer that are on the property where you are hunting. I really like seeing pictures of bucks people have taken and they have their previous years sheds in the picture, that is really neat.

Snow Stressful On Deer

Well we have had a ton of snow here in Kansas and we need the moisture bad so it’s a good thing but I know this time of year can be a big stress on deer. Food sources are hard to come by this time of year and the snow makes it really tough on them. I am putting out supplemental feed this time of year to help the deer make it through this really tough stretch of bad weather, they are really coming to the corn this time of year on the property I hunt. Also coyotes can be tough on them this time of year as well. I have seen several coyotes since we’ve had snow, the cold weather makes them have to get out more and find more food to survive, and the weaker deer can be the one’s they go after. I plan on getting after some coyotes as soon as this snow melts. They can really be tough on the deer and I plan on being tough on them and get rid of a few of them.

Kansas Whitetail Hunting Show

A few weeks ago we had a blast at the second annual Monster Buck Classic We Are Kansas deer hunting show. It was an unbelievable show and was a lot of fun. I had planned on taking tons of pictures but I dropped my camera and broke it, so much for getting a lot of great pictures. There were some amazing big bucks entered in the Monster Buck Contest and great vendors and the celebrity hunters were all awesome. I really enjoyed meeting Troy Laundry of Swamp People, he is such a nice man. I also enjoyed talking to Drury Outdoors Dan Thurston he is a great guy and the whole Nock On crew were there and very nice and fun to talk to. It really was an awesome show and we can’t wait until next years show.Monster Buck Classic This is a picture of Dan Thurston and I standing in front of Dan’s neat 1963 Chevrolet van at the Monster Buck Classic.

Don’t forget now is the time to start getting ready for next deer season. It is a great time to put out mineral lick sites for the deer and it will be time to plant those food plots soon.
