I think it's safe to say that most of us have had to deal with Buck Fever at one time or another. But as most of us know, it's how you deal with buck fever that will decide whether or not you go home with a deer or not.
With the rising cost of fuel these days, I can imagine there are a lot of deer hunters who will be looking for ways to cut their deer hunting cost. Maybe this isn't the year you buy that new rifle or bow. Perhaps that new set of Camouflage clothes will have to wait. Or maybe you're looking to get involved in deer hunting but it looks too expensive. I'm going to tell you that it doesn't have to be expensive and you can get started deer hunting for less than $1000 and even less than $500 if you pick your gear correctly.
First off, before I get started ranting, I want to say a big ole CONGRATULATIONS to the U.S. Women's Shooting Olympian, Corey Cogdell for bringing home the Bronze Metal in the Womens Trap event.
Now, back to ranting.
You know what is missing in the Olympics nearly every year? More Medal winners in the Archery and Shooting events!
I have to admit, as I get older, it's gets harder and harder to think about scouting for deer when it's 100 degrees outside. I'm usually thinking of my next fishing trip or how high my electric bill will be! I'll bet that many of you are the same way, whether you're old or young!
Many of you know I love to hunt deer with modern firearms and blackpowder guns. What you may not know is that I love to bow hunt just as much. In fact, I can honestly say that my gun hunting improved 100% when I took up bowhunting.
