Well, even before the bill to allow hunters to use crossbows for Oklahoma archery deer hunting, I had an idea they would pass it this time around and started researching the best Crossbow I could buy for the money. I had owned a PSE Starfire crossbow (at least I believe that's what it was) back in the early 90's when I lived in Arkansas, but I only had it two years before it was stolen. About the same time I moved back to Oklahoma and never did buy another one. I eventually decided on the Excalibur Axiom Crossbow, here's how I got to that decision.
Sportsmans Warehouse is having a huge Clearance Sale, just before hunting season! Most of what I saw on sale was camping gear, but heck, a sale is a sale and who doesn't need more camping gear? LOL Hurry though, this special sale ends SOON!.
If you live in Oklahoma, then you know it's been bone chilling cold lately. I pulled out every piece of cold weather hunting gear that I owned, including some of my Arctic Shield Clothing. Unfortunately, I found that my Arctic Shield bibs had a broken leg zipper. This is the zipper that runs from the bottom of the leg all the way up to the hip area.
Okay, this is the first such list I've ever written. I got the idea from my good readers. Several of your Better Halfs emailed me and asked what should they get their deer hunters for Christmas. Some held me to a price range, some didn't. So I sit down and made a list of all the cool stuff a Deer Hunter could want for Christmas. Sadly, I had to narrow it down to just 10. Somehow a post title "2001 Gift Ideas For the Deer Hunter On Your Christmas List" seemed a bit long! Now all you have to do is email this list to your Spouse or Better Half or just print it out where they can find it.
If you're getting long in the tooth like me, chances are your first deer gun was chambered in 30-30 Winchester. Chances are also good that the Winchester 30-30 you had was either a Winchester Model 94 or a Marlin 336 (or one of the many knockoffs).
I wish I could tell you that I bought the Mr. Heater "Big Buddy" Propane heater to go hunting or fishing with, but I didn't.
I was visiting Family in Oklahoma when this year's Ice Storms hit. We thought we had everything we needed in case the Electric went out when someone mentioned "What are we going to do for heat if the electric goes out?" Duh...we didn't think about heat!
This post will be a review of "The Claw Skinning Tool" from Cabela's and a YouTube Video of the way I prefer to skin deer.
For some reason, my buddy bought The Claw from Cabela's this year. My opinion is that he saw it in the catalog, ordered it and hated to admit he had been drinking when he'd bought it.
Whenever I find something really cool, I like to share it with my readers.
I'll be the first to admit this, but I didn't purchase the Butt Out tool. My friend did. When he told me about this tool, I thought, "Another sucker is born." He purchased it at the local Wal-Mart store and showed it too me. I still wasn't impressed. It looked like a gimmick.
Recently I was planning a Deer hunt for a section of National Forest and throwing together a little survival kit for day hunts. When I called my buddy and asked him if he had his survival kit together he asked "What for?"
It then struck me that many Deer hunters do not give a Survival kit serious thought.
The best way I can sum up the new Bass Pro Store in Pearland Texas is; A Lot of Fluff, Little Substance.
I've looked forward to this store opening ever since Bass Pro announced they were going to build it. Currently, the nearest Bass Pro Store to me is in Katy Texas. It's about an hour and half, sometimes two to get to the Katy store. You have to drive through Houston stop and go traffic, navigate a mess of road construction and short tempered drivers to get there.keep looking »
