About Mike

The day that I took my first deer was the day that I knew that hunting wasn't a hobby, it was a way of life. From that moment onward I've made it a purpose to devote every ounce of time learning more about hunting game across the country.

My outdoor adventures started back in the hardwood ridges of the northeast back in the early 90's. For the most part I hunted deer and turkey, with the occasional squirrel hunt sprinkled in along the way. It didn't take me long to realize that hunting wasn't just a weekend activity, it was in my blood and something that I couldn't live without. As the seasons rolled by, I began to expand what I hunted and eventually relocated to Texas where doing something hunting related is part of my daily routine. This site is home to my adventures, links to my favorite wild game recipes and thoughts on today's pressing topics within the hunting community.

The first few years that I thought I had a good grasp on everything deer hunting were some of the most unsuccessful seasons of my life. Just when I thought that I knew hunting, whitetails and even my  favorite local spot, I didn't have the slightest clue. Like so many passionate hunters, I too learned the hard way. All that all we can do to be better each season is to continue to learn every single thing we can about the deer you plan to hunt....

How in the world is it already August?! When the first of the month rolled around last week, I knew that it was time to get my tail in gear and get working on pre-season scouting. Trust me when I say that it's never too late to get scouting for the season ahead-- any helpful information deer hunting is always better than no information. 

Last Wednesday decided to take a much needed trip to my local Cabela's to load up on some pre-season gear. When it comes to getting the edge on late summer bucks and their travel patterns, I believe that it's crucial to use technology as much as possible and my plan for this year would be no different than the past. In an effort to quickly access bucks in the area, I broke out my Cuddeback, a new memory card and a couple of bags of BB2 from Big and J. If you haven't had a chance to check...
