May 30th 2015 Turkey hunt in Upstate New York. We had a pretty tough season but were able to wrap our tags around a few birds before it was all said and done. This final hunt of 2015 was a perfect representation of what we dealt with throughout the spring. It all started with guys hunting the same field as us opening morning, our scouted bird getting shot out of the roost on state land, missing a triple beard due to high winds (and improper blind use...) and the typical henned up gobblers. We pushed through the season, adapted and it all came together at the end. What a season!
After hunting elk with archery equipment for the last forty years Mike finds himself still trying to tag his first branched antlered bull. After battling several injuries and setbacks over the last recent years Mike fights back and finds himself with a branched antlered crossbow tag in his pocket. With his sons, Andrew and Tyson, Mike looks to end this 40 year pursuit. Enjoy!

Last year's drought was tough on deer herds across much of the country. It was no different in Central Illinois at the Fogle Farm. Numerous mature bucks that Ross and Derek had on their hit list either went missing or were found dead. They believed the outbreak of EHD to be the main cause. Luckily, a new mature buck frequented the property during the deer hunting season and Ross was able to connect in late November.
While there is nothing we can do as land managers to prevent EHD, property improvements will do nothing but enhance a deer's desire to call your farm home. With many of the mature bucks now gone or missing from the farm, Ross and Derek's best bet is to pull deer that call neighboring properties home. The Fogle Farm is getting a makeover this year in the form of large stands of warm season grasses. If there was anything this farm was missing, it was the security cover that Switchgrass can provide. Combining these warm season grass plantings with fire breaks consisting of Pennington's Durana Clover and Chicory will provide excellent control when it comes time for controlled burning of the grasses, and also extra high protein forages. The versatility of The Firminator allowed for planting a variety of different seed sizes and species in a perfectly prepared seed bed. While these property improvements won't necessarily be quickly establishing habitats, it will definitely improve the property for deer hunting in the years to come.
This story is a great example of deer hunting success on a small property. The James' own and manage just 58 acres in Indiana. With an excellent balance of summer and winter forages, they are providing great year round food sources that are attracting and feeding not only deer that call their farm home, but also the neighbors deer.
Last year we showcased the story of Tom James, his daughters, and their family farm. A buck named Whitesox calls their farm home and Tom's daughter, Morgan, has staked her claim on him. This year, she continued her pursuit of him, but one of Whitesox's old friends showed back up.
This is our 2013 Montana DIY archery elk hunt where we backpack into the Pioneer Mountains chasing elk during the rut. Watch along as we give out the details our trip and take you along for the ride. This is our first time elk hunting but we sure learned a lot and will be back at it every year now.
