Winter Food Plot Maintenance

Attracting deer to your property year-round is the first step to a successful hunting season. Many hunters neglect food plots during the winter months, which allows deer to seek food and shelter in other places. Counteract this behavior by maintaining a food plot that produces a variety of winter plants. Densely covered thickets where deer seek warmth are the perfect place for new plots. Test the soil’s pH and fertility to determine if fertilizer and lime pellets are needed for greater yield. Till soil, plant seeds, then watch as deer make your land their home.

Colorado Bull Elk Hunt of a Lifetime

It took John Skrabo, our Vice President of Marketing, eight years to draw an archery elk tag in a limited unit in Colorado. "I knew it would be the hunt of a lifetime," said Skrabo, who has bowhunted elk in every western state except Arizona. Skrabo headed out in September to the Aspen forests of western Colorado to hunt with longtime friend, Jim Birchfield of South Carolina. John hunted with Jim's brother, Lynn, who is a savvy woodsman himself. The pair made a great combination with Skrabo's bugling and cow calling and Birchfield's knowledge of the country.

Early Season Deer Secrets From The Experts

Hunting during early season presents many challenges, but using the right strategies can make this time of year fruitful for avid hunters. Picking the perfect tree stand location depends on knowing the paths deer take for food and water—making the Moultrie game camera an essential tool.  During the tepid early season, bucks seek refuge in well-covered areas, but often, they desire the cooler temperatures of hill tops. Easily funnel deer from these sanctuaries to your stand location by scouting the trails bucks follow, and you’ll soon enjoy great tasting venison before other hunters even get started.  For more early season deer secrets, read the full story at

Tips for Surviving and Thriving in the Backcountry

Preparing for the backcountry can be a daunting task.  If you live out West and are used to the thin air, steep mountains and miles of untouched wilderness, being prepared for the backcountry is easier for you than it is for eastern hunters who are heading West for the first time for an elk hunting trip.  In both situations, hunting off the beaten path can test a person's physical strength, mental toughness and drive to succeed at filling their tag. Over the years, I have watched plenty of hunters get excited about hunting at the tree line, only to watch their enthusiasm fade on day two or three of the hunt after they've only had a few encounters with game, are running low on food and running out of strength. The backcountry is a tough place to hunt, no matter how strong you are.
