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.

Loading a Coyote into a Dog Box [VIDEO]

Would you consider loading a live coyote into a dog box?

Trappers have had to relocate problem coyotes for as long as coyotes and trappers have existed.

 When most coyotes are relocated, there are many safety concerns to deal with. Coyotes are not known for their friendly behavior, and many people are scared to death of the canines.

Now, a coyote is not going to attack a human unless something is terribly wrong with the animal. Coyotes are just as scared, if not more so, than what we are of them.

I have dealt with a lot of coyotes as a trapper. Some have been very aggressive toward me, and others were not.

This trapper has to relocate a problem coyote. Normally a catch pole would be used, but not this time. The coyote was picked up with gloved hands, and placed in the dog box.

I think this guy has done this a few times.

Coyote Steps in Foothold Trap [VIDEO]

Trappers rarely get to see a coyote work a set.

Coyote trappers love to find coyotes in their traps. What they do not get to see very often is how a coyote works a trap and gets caught. By watching a coyote work a set, trappers can get a better understanding about trap placement and coyote behavior.

Watch this video as a coyote works a set, and steps in the middle of a Victor #3 4-coiled foothold trap at a dirt hole set.

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 Tan Your Own Furbearers [VIDEO]

Tanned fur is easier than you think.

 

With the recent decline in furbearer prices, a lot of trappers are looking for alternate uses for the fur they catch. If you’ve ever wanted to tan some fur for wall hangings, now would be a good time.

Another source of income would be from selling tanned furs. A tanned fur can sell for much more than a finished fur at an auction house.

Instead of sending your furs off to a tannery, you can do it yourself. This video explains how to tan your own fur.
