Big & J Industries BB2 Long Range Attractant

By Michael Deming While hunting whitetails in Kansas with one of our endorsed outfitters nearly a half dozen years ago, I was introduced to Big and J Industries BB2. This was a product that Wes Atkinson of Atkinson Expeditions was using to lure in whitetails to get pictures and video of to see what was available on his leases. I enjoyed visiting the camera sights almost as much as I did hunting since we were able to see so many bucks hitting these spots. In spots where he had used regular grains, there wasn’t nearly as many photos and...

American Bison in the West with Rancho de Chavez

By Mike Deming In the beginning of the 19th century, the American bison roamed the plains by the millions. The massive herds were an extremely impressive sight. What we did to them as a society is utterly appalling and doesn’t show the hunters or should I say killers in a very good light. These majestic animals were taken to near extinction.

By Michael Deming At eight hundred yards away and tucked back in the shade, my buddy Josh said to me, “quit moving”. The rams we were watching had caught the movement of me getting a bottle of water out of my pack. I was sure that he was out of his mind, but a glance through my spotting scope showed that they were frozen and looking in our directions. I was sure that this was a coincidence as we were over eight hundred yards away, we are in the shade and all cameoed up. I opened my pack back...

June’s WORDS FROM THE PUBLISHER

Nearly every state in the union has a free fishing day and a good majority of them take place during the month of June. This is a great time to share the great outdoors with your neighbors, coworkers or anyone that has spoken up about your social media posts with a stringer full of fish. Visit your states game and fish website for specifics on this program. Most states allow youth to fish without a license as long as the guardian has one, but this program pretty much allows everyone to fish without spending the money to buy a...
