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.
Jack Rosander has done something that not many Montana Mule Deer hunters have done in quite a while, he's put a big non-typical Mule Deer in the Boone & Crocket Club Record Books, and he did it with a Muzzleloader!
Rosander took the big Mulie last year in Eastern Montana at the outskirts of a town called Colstrip.
The Gillete News Record is reporting that a Mule Deer shot East of Sheridan on Oct. 1st tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). The Mule Deerwas shot near the town of Ucross Wyoming.
CWD is a disease that affects the brain and nervous systems of Deer, Elk and Moose.
I love deer hunting. I also love bargain hunting!
Every year I browse the Manufacturers websites for rebates, coupons and promo codes for deals on hunting gear. This year I've decided to share some of these deals with my blog buddies.
Federal Cartridge has several promotions running.
How To Hunt Deer Funnels
I'm going to assume that you haven't lived under a rock your entire deer hunting life. However, even if you have, I'll briefly describe what a deer funnel is.
A deer funnel is basically anything that causes deer to pass through a narrow or restricted area. Think of the tiny midsection of an hour glass and you'll get the picture.
Kirt Darner and his wife Paula go on trial in January for several Big Game related violations, one of which is for tranquilizing trophy Elk in New Mexico and then transporting them to a Ranch where huge fees would be charged for hunting them.
After writing about how the .243 Winchester was not a good round for the beginning deer hunter, I received a number of emails asking me which rounds I would consider for new deer hunters.
Here's My Pick of Rifle Cartridges For the Beginning Deer Hunter
Note: This list is in no order. Any of these cartridges are more than enough for any Whitetail or Mule Deer buck that walks.
The Hunter Opinion Survey conducted by the Idaho Department of Fish & Game is out.
This is a pretty extensive survey of Mule Deer hunters. The Dept. surveyed Idaho Mule Deer hunters to see what they wanted in terms of Mule Deer management.
Basically, they want bigger Mule Deer bucks and to be able to hunt the entire season.
In an effort to prevent Chronic Wasting Disease from starting in North Carolina, the State passed a law last year that prohibits Game animals such as Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, Elk and Moosefrom being imported from states that are known to have occurrences of CWD.
Hunting fields and food plots seems to be a pretty popular subject going by the number of emails I receive. With a little scouting and pre-planning, you can have that field visiting Buck strung up in no time!« go back — keep looking »
