U.P. Muzzleloader Buck Video
December 16, 2019
Here is the video of the recent Muzzleloader buck! It was a cold, memorable hunt to say the least. Overall, 2019 was definitely a season I'll never forget. I know I must be hooked on the outdoors, as even though I'm tagged out, I still went out this weekend with no weapon, just to watch deer and enjoy being out in the north woods. I hope that everybody out there had a safe and enjoyable season, and we'll see what 2020 brings us!
 

 
Tagged out in the U.P.!
December 10, 2019
This year I set up a new late season spot in Iron County that I've been itching to try. On 12/8/19, a real nice 8 pointer appeared on camera in the middle of the night for the first time. I waited a couple days for the big cold snap to hit us, hoping that the storm would get him moving in daylight. It worked out tonight when he came out with plenty of light left, and the muzzleloader connected. CLICK HERE to see some pics on the buck pole, and I'll post a video in a few days here.

It's been quite a few years since I've filled both tags, so I sure feel lucky at how this year went. I'm still planning on taking some friends out hunting and doing some filming, so at least I'll be able to spend a little more time outdoors. I hope that things are going well for all of you, and the video will be coming shortly!

 
Illinois Shotgun Buck Video
December 5, 2019
Shotgun buck video is posted. We were able to look back at past trail cam pics, and we actually think that buck may be pushing 6.5 years old. We had pics of him in 2017 where he looked to be a 4 year old back then. Illinois certainly treated us well once again this year.

As for Michigan, it sounds like the gun harvest was down a bit, and now we've had a real cold, snowy start to December. I'm gearing up for late season now. I haven't seen any shooters on cam yet, but most years a new buck will show up somewhere, so I'm still hoping to find one to pursue yet by season's end.

I hope that everybody has had a great deer season. Enjoy every minute outdoors that you can!
 

 
Successful Illinois gun season!
November 25, 2019
Michigan rifle season started off slow for many, but seems to be picking up. This past weekend I was in Illinois for their gun opener, and on day 2, we had a great mature buck get within range of us, and everything worked out! We'll post a video of the hunt soon, but for now, CLICK HERE to see a few pics of the buck. There is still plenty of season left in Michigan, so good luck to everyone out there!

 
199 lbs dressed 8 Point Video
November 14, 2019
Alright, here is the video of the recent Upper Peninsula bow kill. I already got back from the processor and that was a lot of meat! Good luck to all you heading out rifle hunting the next couple of weeks. Be safe, have fun, and make some hunting memories out there!
 

 
Big U.P. Buck Down!
November 8, 2019
November 8th was a hunt to remember! Now that the rut is kicking in, I decided to go for an all day sit, and it paid off in a big way. After not seeing any deer all morning, at 1:05 this mature U.P. bruiser came walking past following a doe. Double lung shot made for a fairly easy tracking job in the snow, and then the work began, dragging out the big buck that dressed out at 199 lbs. I feel very lucky to have been in the right place at the right time! We'll post the video soon, but you can CLICK HERE to see some pics on the online buck pole. Good luck to everybody gearing up for gun season!

 
Illinois Archery Video
November 4, 2019
Here is the video of the Illinois bow buck, I hope you enjoy. I've been hunting the U.P. some more, and we are starting to see some signs of the rut. I've had encounters with a handful of 1.5 and 2.5 year old bucks, but I'm holding out for something older, so hopefully patience pays this year! I'll keep you posted...
 

 
Illinois Bow Buck
October 30, 2019
Illinois was good to us again! On the late afternoon of the 27th, we had an old, mature 8 give us an opportunity, and everything came together. We are putting together the video as we speak, but for now, if you'd like a peek, CLICK HERE to check him out on the buck pole. 5.5" bases on that old buck. We are getting into that good time of year now, so good luck out there!

 
Colorado Elk Video
October 18, 2019
Here is the video from the Colorado Elk Hunt. We had a great time. I didn't wait long enough for the cameraman, so the first shot was not on video, but the 'finishing shot' was. Sure was an adventure that I'll never forget!
 

 
Seven bears
October 14, 2019
So far this season I'm getting lots of bear pics, even when I don't want to. Talking to other friends up here, it seems to be a common theme all over. I went out the other night, and had a doe and fawn come in early, and then a young buck shortly thereafter. Then all of the sudden a huge sow black bear popped out with three cubs! I didn't have time to video them, as I wanted to scare them away before they got even closer than they were. After they left, I decided to keep hunting in case any more deer were going to show up. About an hour later, ANOTHER sow with only two cubs came out from the south. I did manage to video them a bit before scaring the off and calling it a night. Here is a short and sweet video of that evening.
