Every now and then, there's a tool that changes the way you hunt. Cellular trail cameras, digital mapping apps, and tree saddles have radically changed the game in the just the last few years. What's the next tool that can give you the extra edge you need to hunt more efficiently?

In this episode of the How to Hunt Deer Podcast, Josh talks with Hampton Honeycutt of Leise Motors about their eBikes and how they just might make you a more efficient hunter. Ebikes can help you go farther, faster, and quieter than previously possible. For the mobile, run and gun public land hunter, eBikes can provide an edge over the competition. For the private land hunter, eBikes can help you preserve your ground by providing a stealthier approach. In this episode, the guys cover the benefits of eBikes, some of their many uses, and how to get the most out of this new tool.

Should Pennsylvania Reintroduce the American Marten?

Conservation
Predator Hunting
Trapping
Public Land

This week on the Pennsylvania Woodsman we are going back to the biology classroom.  We have a conversation with the state’s furbearer biologist: Thomas Keller.  Tom is a down to earth family man who enjoys hunting and trapping as much as the next guy in line.  When he reached out to us to share information about this potential reintroduction, skepticism was fairly high.  Is it really worth bringing another predator into this state?  Listen with an open mind and decide for yourself!

We discuss the road leading Tom into this position with the game commission and his passion for wildlife.  Next we dive into the background of the American Marten.  When was the Marten eradicated from Pennsylvania?  What are it’s feeding habits?  What is the preferred habitat?  Is the American Marten a threat to game populations such as turkeys and ruffed grouse?  What benefits does the American Marten have for the ecosystem?  Tom addresses all this and much more in our conversation.  The fear of the unknown is typically what breeds negativity, but after listening to Tom, you’ll have less to fear as a hunter and game species appreciator!

If you follow the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast on Instagram, you may already know what this title is about. This emotion packed episode is about John's 2022 Colorado elk hunt, which started off with a bang when his truck was stolen from the hotel parking lot on the first night of his trip. John had been looking forward to this hunt with his buddy Nathan Jasper for a year and a half, but everything got flipped upside down when he stopped for a night in Denver and car thieves stole his truck and everything inside.

After a very expensive trip to Cabelas, John still went on and followed through with the hunt, but his troubles were far from over. An early snow storm dumped 8-10 inches of snow, making travel around the lodge near impossible. Trying to roll with the punches, John and Nate dropped to lower elevation to try and find the elk the snow had pushed down. All they found down low were hunters and land locked pieces of public that were blocked off by private landowners. This trip turned into a life lesson about trials and perseverance, and they are some life lessons that John will not soon forget.

On this episode of Huntavore, Nick has a bucket list chat with food writer and Food Network personality, Simon Majumdar.  Simon lays out some knowledge and history of venison, including how venison has been viewed in the UK and how it differs here in the US.  Discussions on Tikka Masala, using yogurt as a marinade, and a food game called Good, Better, Best featuring a winter favorite, Pot Roast.  Pour yourself a dark pint, and settle in on this episode of Huntavore.

Nick is joined by Simon Majumdar, food writer, podcaster, and Food Network personality.  Simon has been around the world, tasting food, understanding where it comes from, and how things are prepared.  In fact food is the language of his family.  “What have you been eating?”  instead of the usual “how are you?”  Growing up in the United Kingdom,  Simon had the experience of enjoying several types of deer; muntjac, roe, and red stag to name a few.  Given the system of how game is managed over there, you can purchase some from your butcher or market.  Here in the US, it is a different story.  Simon shows a real appreciation for hunting and fishing, because it is an effective tool for managing the landscape, and a more personally important reason, the wonderful wild meat.

A large takeaway that Nick got from this discussion with Simon is that the US is quite narrow in the way venison is prepared versus how it is prepared in the UK and in Europe.  Steaks, Straps, and burger reign supreme in what comes out of processors today.  Simon is encouraged that North American hunters are beginning to venture out past the normal smoked backstrap and trying new dishes.  Tradition is important, and old dishes need to be made, but can we make room for new traditions to be made?

Chris Allen tells the story of his lifelong career of being a top tier coonhound handler. Chris also recounts his legendary run with Millcreek Molly. Molly sat atop the all time PKC money winner list for almost a decade. Included in this were to wins for two different trucks. Chris tells the story how he came up short, by a hair, on a third truck.

A Little Late Season Encouragement

Big Game
Bowhunting
Strategy
Whitetail

As November comes to an end and rifle season fades away, many people consider the season done for. That very fact is one reason you should not give up yet! As John is off in Colorado chasing elk, he wants to make sure that you are not down in the dumps just yet. There is still over a month of deer season left and it can be some of the best hunting of the entire year. This may be a shorter episode of the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast, but it is a very important one.

John absolutely loves late season whitetail hunting. In fact, 5 of his last 7 Oklahoma bucks have come after December 22! This episode is meant to both educate and encourage folks to not give up. Late season can be one of the easiest and best times to pattern a mature buck. As hunting pressure goes down and bucks become slaves to their stomachs, punching your tag can be as predictable as a late season cold front.

On this week's episode of the Pennsylvania Woodsman we are discussing current events happening in our neighboring state; New Jersey.  On November 15th, the state voted unanimously to reinstate a bear season from December 5-10th.  There has not been a bear hunt since 2020.  During that time frame, there has been an explosion in the bear population and a substantial increase in bear-human conflicts.  Joining us on the show this week is diehard bear hunter, Jay Lyon.

Jay grew up hunting in his home state of New Jersey and has found his greatest passion in black bears.  He is no stranger to hunting bears in the northeast as he has taken numerous bears in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and surrounding states.  After our introduction we dive right into the exciting opportunity unfolding in less than two weeks.  In addition, we address the concern of the anti-hunting agenda in the state of New Jersey and how that continues to spread.  Even if you do not plan to participate in this hunt, be a supporter of this conservation effort and a voice against the anti hunting community.  Don't assume this can't happen in your neighborhood!

How to Find Bucks AFTER Gun Season

Big Game

Strategy
Whitetail

The Orange Army has been in full force across the country! While the arrival of gun deer seasons is a welcomed event for deer hunters, the onset of gun hunting creates a major shift in the habits of local deer herds. The massive influx of hunters and the steady BOOM of firearms have deer more on edge than at any point of the hunting season so far. All this pressure has a significant impact on where deer, especially mature bucks, like to spend their time during daylight. They become much more reclusive, and much more difficult to pin down. So what should you do when you're still holding a tag when the deer seemingly go underground?

In this episode of the How to Hunt Deer podcast, Josh talks with Dan Johnson about finding bucks after the gun seasons have laid the pressure on thick. The guys discuss how deer respond to pressure, likely hotspots for deer concentrations, and how to go about putting boots on the ground to locate the pressured bucks you're after.

This week is a special week to folks from Ohio and the state up North.  Each year the football teams come together for an epic battle on the gridiron.  We know this isn’t a football show, but when we have the opportunity to bring a couple Buckeye legends on the show to discuss outdoor activities, as well as a game between two undefeated giants, you just do it. This week on the show we talk with Anthony Schlegel and Jeff Heuerman (and Kyle Waters, friend of Jeff’s) to discuss hunting, fishing, and football.

For real information that will help you afield next week, we also have Andrew Buck Michael from WSYX in Columbus.  Andrew is a long time Ohioian that spends a lot of time outside and knows the importance of an accurate forecast for those outdoor activities.  He gives us a run down of what the gun season should like, as well as the rest of the year.  He discusses thermals and a few other topics during the segment.

Paul and Andrew have returned from the first deer camp of the year.  One doe in the freezer, and more to come on that trip.  As Paul mentions, we made a new “friend”, Terrance, who may or may not be a 300 lb black bear, as well as many other great memories.

Happy Thanksgiving, as we are truly thankful for all of you out there listening to the show!!  Good luck in the gun woods, and be safe!! And of course GO BUCKEYES!!!

On this episode of the Nine Finger Chronicles, Dan talks with Jeremy Dinsmore of the Antler Up Podcast about his struggles so far this season. Jeremy hunts the big woods of Pennsylvania and talks with us about what the deer movement has been like so far this season including a spark of optimism early in the season when his trail cameras were showing daylight movement from some really good bucks. Jeremy shares a quick story about lack of penetration from an arrow that he released on on doe as well as another encounter where a hot doe brought several shooter bucks through his sooting lanes but none of them slowed down even when he tried to get them to stop.


This episode is an excellent example that reminds us all that even when you put yourself in the right position, with the right access routes, downwind of the best terrain features, things can still go wrong, and that can be very frustrating. Enjoy!

In this episode, Jon Teater (Whitetail Landscapes) and Bill Thompson (Spartan Forge) discuss when to hunt and predictive modeling. Bill upsets the idea that weather is everything when it comes to deer movement. Bill's business and application, Spartan Forge, utilizes Global Position Data (GPS) to analyze deer movement and related trends. Bill explains factors that are analyzed to understand deer as it relates to movement and what data trends he sees generally and regionally that impact his algorithm.

Bill's tools analyze trends related to herd status, seasonal status (i.e. breeding), drought and other factors to diagnose movement. Bill discusses when cold snaps matter as it pertains to movement patterns and breaks down regional differences that get deer on their feet. Bill discusses the range of movement for deer and why some deer have preferences to travel miles and various breeding strategies of each. Bill discusses the primary and secondary ruts and trends in breeding. Bill discusses deer weight loss after the rut.

Bill explains why he doesn’t prefer all-day hunting and how the movement he analyzes doesn’t fit necessarily into the all-day trends we anticipate. Bill explains why vegetation and related cover trumps terrain as it pertains to deer preferences during the rut. Bill weighs cover versus food as it relates to movement and priorities, especially as it pertains to daylight movement.

In this episode of Huntavore, the holidays are fast approaching.  Thanksgiving is here at the end of the week, and that ushers in the arrival of gatherings, parties, and opportunities to share our hard earned harvest.  Chef Rob Chiappone joins us again to talk tips and tricks to making food during these festivals.  We talk turkey for thanksgiving, roasting whole, and also breaking the bird down and treating specific cuts separately.  We jump into Christmas and talk big bold presentations of a whole leg roast and wellington, and finish up with Hors D'oeuvre for New Years.  Let this chat get the season started, and meal prep wheels turning on this episode of Huntavore.

Nick is joined by friend and returning guest Rob Chiappone, a private chef and fan of the wild harvest.  The two together talk about the upcoming holiday season, kicking off with Nick’s favorite, Thanksgiving.  This is the time where using your wild turkey would be an amazing opportunity. Nick suggests, with the differences in how dark meat and white meat should be treated, a turkey could be broken down.  Taking off the breast as a whole breast, and roasting.  The leg and thighs could be slow cooked for longer then.  Sous vide would be a great way to do that.  Nick had good results with 155* for 36 hours.  Yes, that's a long time, but the machine is doing the cooking, not you.  We get into Wellington construction and making hollandaise sauce and finish up with some appetizer ideas.  Rob and Nick also touch on the backstrap, a step into Huntavore’s head to Hoof, where we lay out its location, its structure, and characteristics that help in being able to cook it.

Finally, John is telling his October muzzleloader buck story this week on the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast. It was a weekend full of rain and very little deer movement, but in the end John was able to find some success and put his tag on a really nice Oklahoma buck.

John was very limited in hunting time this year after the birth of his daughter in July, and had put most of his season's hope into the last weekend of October during the state's muzzleloader season. The weekend had been good to John in the past, with several mature buck sightings over the years. John put in for a vacation day that Friday to make it a long weekend, but as the time approached, so did the bad weather. After a few slow hunts, John kept telling himself that as soon as the weather breaks, the bucks would be coming out. His patience paid off, and he was rewarded with a dandy Oklahoma 10 point buck!
