Spot and Stalk Hog Hunting

Hunting hogs with bow and arrow is a rush.

I love bowhunting, whether it is for deer, turkeys, even gators.  But what I like to do most is pick up my bow and go after wild hogs.

Hog hunting is available in more states than ever before.  Liberal bag limits and seasons, makes this a hunting opportunity almost year round in many states.  And, in some states you don’t even need a license.

Gaining permission to hunt is simple, compared to other biggame animals.  Landowners are more than happy to see hogs hunted, and removed from their property.

Hunting hogs with a bow while trying to put on a stalk can be difficult at times.  their eyesight is not all that good, but their ability to smell shines.

Once deer season and other biggame seasons have come to a close, consider spot and stalk hog hunting.  it is a blast.

This Crossbow Takes Serious Abuse and Still Performs Perfectly [Video]

This crossbow can take a lot of abuse.

I would never throw my crossbow, and expect it to perform. Until now.

I witnessed firsthand a CamX X330 Crossbow be thrown multiple times, picked up, and still enable the user to hit the bullseye at 30 yards. 

I’ve always been taught to take care of my gear, and I will continue to do so. But it’s nice to know there’s a crossbow that can withstand the typical hunter’s everyday abuse and still perform the way we expect.

Check out this video to see the crossbow in action. If you want more information, visit CamX Crossbows.

How to Be a Better Butcher

Visiting a butcher shop will make you better at butchering your next deer.

Do you process your own deer and other big-game animals? If so, there’s always room for improvement. And with deer season right around the corner, there’s no better time than right now to take a little refresher course.

Outdoor Life‘s PJ Delhomme visited Yellowstone Processing in Montana to find out what it takes to be good at butchering deer.
As the sun starts to set on another weekend of Montana’s hunting season, there is a lull in the action at the shop. The successful morning hunters are long gone. The successful evening hunters are still afield, packing out their elk and deer, and calling all their buddies. For the workers, it’s a time to grab a quick dinner, a smoke, or a cup of coffee….[Continued]
