Pro’s Tips: Hiking vs Glassing for Big Game

By Michael Deming I had been pulled off the side of the road watching three bedded bucks for about an hour when a truck pulled up behind me. The bucks were close to a mile away and tucked into the shade. One of the guys walked up on my side of the truck and asked, “What are you looking at”? I told him that I was just looking for a buck to put my tag on and didn’t share with him that I was currently watching several good bucks, with one of them over 180” B&C. I asked if...

By Michael Deming Are you out of your mind”, was the response I got through the phone from long-time outfitter Scott McLeod.

Pro’s Tips: Getting The Most Out Of Your Muzzleloader

By Michael Deming It was probably twenty-five years ago when I got my first muzzleloader. I had a Javelina HAM (handgun, archery, muzzleloader) tag for late January. I’d always bow hunted, but I truly wanted to extend my range with a trusty smoke pole. One of the guys in our camp was a self-proclaimed expert in the muzzleloader department and he told me the items I needed to purchase. Before the days of YouTube, this wasn’t just a simple click away and you needed guys like this. Now you just hope the guy or gal on YouTube knows what...
