Rattling can be a very effective technique for calling whitetail bucks.

Hunting a big last minute whitetail can be a real challenge.

Last minute whitetail bucks can be tough to get, tomorrow good Lord willing I will be getting after some last minute whitetail deer. It will be my final attempt of the year at harvesting one of those big boys.

Last Minute Whitetail

I have had a great season getting after those trophy bucks, I sure hate it when the season comes to an end, but I have had another fun year chasing deer and was able to see quite a few deer. I saw a lot of whitetails this year while deer hunting and made plenty of great memories in the field. It is always fun to look back on those memories and recall all of the big whitetail bucks we encountered in the past. Even though some of those memories are of the one’s that got away.

Trail cameras are a great scouting tool to help you figure out deer patterns.

Any time I encounter a big trophy it is something I remember weather or not I was able to harvest him. I think I can remember every single encounter I have had with a big brute. It is just hard to forget something like that. That’s what makes deer hunting so special is all of the great memories we make getting after those willy creatures. Do you remember most of your encounters with the big boys? They are hard to forget aren’t they? Did you have a good season this year? For me being able to harvest a big boy is just the icing on the cake to having a great season. Even if I didn’t get a big boy it was still a great season being in the great outdoors smelling the fresh air, watching the sunrise, and spending good quality time with family and friends. That is why I think it is important to get those young children involved in the great outdoors, and pass along the great American heritage. I think it is important to teach them about preserving wildlife and its habitat, so future generations will be able to enjoy the great outdoors for years to come just as we have.

 

Favorite Pictures Deer Hunting

When I first started deer hunting back in 1980 the way we would take pictures of our harvest was with a Polaroid camera. You would take the picture and then the pull it out of the camera and fan it in the air and watch it develop right before your eyes. Some of my favorite memories of deer hunting were captured on film by way of Polaroid the are some of my  favorite pictures deer hunting. The way we take take pictures of deer these days is much easier than back in the day. We used to have to get the film developed. So you would have to wait until you finished the roll of film and then take it to Eckerds and wait to have it developed, you could pay extra and get it developed that day. Today we just store our pictures of deer right on our computer. It makes things so much easier.

I have a photo album of all of my past memories deer hunting. It is fun to pull it out and recall some of the bucks that I harvested in the past. It always brings back so many fun times in the great outdoors. I have always saved my photos of past hunts and am sure glad that I did. I have some great ones.

I wanted to show you some of my favorite photos of the 2008  season, it has been a great season so far for me. I made a lot of memories that I will cherish forever.

Big Bucks

Check out this truck load of big bucks. My good friend Brad sent me these pictures taken down south hunting trophy bucks.  It looks like they had a great season down south hunting. This picture shows that this club has been doing some good quality deer hunting management. It looks like the trophy bucks were on the move, looking for love in all the wrong places.

South Hunting

These trophy bucks  were all taken down south hunting within a three day period during the rut, at their club in Monroe county in Georgia. It just shows that the best time to harvest big bucks is when they are in full rut and chasing does. It is a very exciting time to be in the woods, when the big bucks are on the move looking for does in estrous. The whitetail respond to calling and scents more during the rut as well. It looks like there was some great rutting action down south hunting this year. In order to achieve good quality deer management, it is imperative to get the buck to doe ratio to at least 1:3 buck to 1:2, or 1:1 is best.

We are proud to have Brad join our Pro-staff. He has years of experience in the great outdoors and knows how to get after those whitetail bucks.

Also on our Pro-staff is Jay. Jay is has harvested some very nice whitetails and loves to bow hunt, and we are sure glad to have him on board. He is guaranteed to keep everyone laughing. This picture shows Jay practicing a little quality deer management.
