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.

Keep Your Whitetail Mounts Looking Great

These tips will keep your mounts looking great.

Let’s face it, taking a deer to a taxidermist to get a shoulder mount is not cheap.  Several hundred dollars will come out of your pocket for the finished mount.

With thatkind of money on the line, you want to be able to proudly display your deer for years to come.

But, through the years, time takes a toll on even the best taxidermy work.

Field & Streams Greg Staggs has some useful information that will help keep your mount looking new.

Bring the shine back to a mount that has lost its luster by applying Laser Sheen equine hair polish, available at feed stores. To maintain a sheen, lightly spray your mount occasionally with Skin So Soft Bath Oil, which you can find at drugstores. With either product, use a soft-bristled brush, and stroke with the grain of the hair, never against. [CONTINUED]

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.

A Safety Harness for Crossbow Hunters [VIDEO]

Crossbow hunters finally have a safety harness for their needs.

Crossbow hunting is gaining popularity across the Country, and so was the need for a safety harness for crossbow hunters.

Up until recently, crossbow hunters were left out of the loop when it came to a safety harness.  We could use the traditional harness, but we could have used more.

Fortunately, Hunter Safety System stepped up to the plate, and designed a safety vest specifically for the crossbow hunter.

Unlike traditional bows, crossbows have issues related to cocking the crossbow while hunting from an elevated position. When the crossbow is cocked, the treestand safety harnesses’ tether strap tends to fall in front of the hunter, which not only is frustrating but also can tangle with the crossbow and knock off or damage the scope. To eliminate this problem, HSS has added a Tether Stow Strap to the new Crossbow Harness that will safely secure the tether when cocking the bow.

Another feature of this new harness is the deep zippered pocket specifically designed to accommodate the cocking rope which if stowed in a backpack or regular harness pocket can easily get tangled with other gear or fall out of the stand. HSS has also equipped the new Crossbow Harness with a Range Finder Rip Cord that keeps the rangefinder handy yet out of the way and always attached so an accidental drop is never a concern.

Designed on the popular HSS Hybrid Flex chassis, the new HSS Crossbow Harness features the same 1.25-inch upper-body webbing, shock absorbing tether and waist buckle. The individual, padded hexagon shoulder straps on the HSS Crossbow Harness provide comfort and maximum flexibility and the ample pockets—including a secure mesh pocket designed for a cell phone—make it easy to store all of the necessary crossbow and other hunting gear. Weighing only 2.5 lbs., the new HSS Crossbow Harness meets current industry standards recognized by the Treestand Manufacturers Association.
