On this episode of the Nine Finger Chronicles, Dan talks with Chris Krueger about consistently killing mature whitetails. Chris has been on a roll filling his Missouri bow tag since 2017 and shares his thoughts on why he has been successful of the last 6 years. The guys talk about the importance of being mobile, having proper access routes, learning how to cut the wind while in the stand, and several examples of how failing can lead to success. Chris and Dan discuss how important time spent doing the activity that you want to be good at is. This means if you want to be a better deer hunter, you need to do more deer related activities. Shooting, scouting, hunting, thinking about hunting, you get the point. Excellent episode, enjoy!

That pressure did play a role in strategy, but so did timing in proximity to the peak breeding timeframe of the rut. Garrett describes the thought process and strategy going in, how that changed over the first several hours in the woods, what type of sign he found to trigger setting up in a tree right away, and the play-by-play of the hunt.

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!

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.

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.

EPISODE 100! Holy smokes can you believe that. What better way to celebrate 100 episodes than with a good ol big buck success story! 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!

How & When Deer REALLY Move w/ Brandon Gador of Quiver

We've all heard the old wives' tales about when and why deer move. Some swear by cold fronts, others could take or leave them. Some hunt solely based on moon phase, others think it's hocus pocus. Collared deer studies suggest that deer movement doesn't really fluctuate much from day to day, but that simply doesn't align with what hunters see when hunting. So what are we to make of it all?

In this episode of How to Hunt Deer, Josh talks with Brandon Gador of the Quiver Hunting App to see when hunters REALLY see the best deer movement. Brandon operates the Quiver Hunting App, a simple way to log your hunts and deer sightings. Over the years, Brandon has amassed a ton of real-world data that has produced some interesting findings. During the conversation, he shares what hunter log data reveals about how deer move around cold fronts, the moon, time of day, and time of week.

On this week's episode of the Pennsylvania Woodsman we are first joined by Nick Otto from the Huntavore podcast on Sportsmen's Empire.  Nick calls in to join us during the start of Michigan's firearm deer season, something Pennsylvania will be doing in just another week.  Nick's podcast focuses on the aftermath of a successful hunt and how to break down and properly process game for quality table fare.  Nick provides us with some excellent tips and tricks for managing your kill in the field, and back at deer camp.  He shares philosophy of hanging head up or down, to skin or not to skin, moisture and temperature management, and more.

Following our intro with Nick, we chat with Jon Lewis from the Just Hunt Club.  Jon is originally from Pennsylvania and is no stranger to understanding whitetail hunting heritage in the Keystone State.  He also has done his fair share of whitetail hunting in the northeast including Pennsylvania, New York, and New Hampshire.  We chat about his hunting strategies across the country and how they may or may not relate to the northeast.  We also discuss his experiences hunting whitetails via tracking in the snow, and recap his successful New Hampshire monarch he harvested last season.  Tons of information in this week's episode, thanks for listening and good luck during the upcoming firearm season!

Branden explains that this buck actually showed up the previous as clean typical buck but disappeared at some point in October after one close encounter. Then, after the season was over he got another picture of him confirming that this deer made it thought the hunting season. During the off season Branden and his father did a lot of brainstorming about what they could do different the upcoming season to get within shooting range of this mega-buck.

As the 2022 season got close they got confirmation that the buck was still alive and cruising the same route as the previous year. All it took was an early October stand location change, and the first time Branden sat in this stand the buck showed up... and the rest is history. Enjoy this story!

Hey everyone, welcome to episode 147 of the Antler Up Podcast!

On this week's episode Dimitri and I finally got a chance to meet up and talk a little bit about how our seasons have gone up to this point.  At the time of recording this we both are preparing for our weekend hunts where we are allowed to hunt on Sunday in Pennsylvania. Dimiri shares stories regarding his two PA doe and his buck encounters stories.  I share my story from halloween weekend where I had some great encounters and was drawn back on the piebald 8 point buck twice but unable to get a shot off.  We discuss how we are enjoying this season and haven’t let the “pressure” of producing get to us and rather really enjoy getting out there and having the opportunity to bowhunt.  We finish the podcast by talking about our trailcam data so far.  This is by far the best year I have ever had when it comes to getting images of mature bucks and the plans regarding cameras for the future.  Thanks again everyone for the support and tuning in! With archery season beginning to wrap up in PA and other states, let us know what kind of episodes you are interested in hearing and if you had success this past year hit us up and come on the show to share your story!

It is hard to believe November is almost halfway over, and for John and his hunting partner Nate Jasper, that means their attention is turning to late season elk hunting. John and Nate started hunting elk together in Idaho during college in 2009, but this is a totally different type of hunt than anything either of them have ever done before. The two started out rifle hunting elk in October, but then transitioned to September archery hunting and have done that ever since. The hunt they are about to experience however, is Colorado's fourth season rifle hunt. This hunt takes place the week of Thanksgiving in late November. Cold and Snowy are probably the best way to describe the conditions, two things John in particular is not very experienced with as of late since graduating and moving away from Idaho in 2013.

On this episode of the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast, John and Nate discuss their upcoming trip. They talk about the gear they plan to bring for a trip that has a lot of uncertainty when it comes to weather. It could be anywhere from 60 to -20 at any given time and everywhere in between. Apart from clothes, the guys also talk about gear such as packs, binoculars and spotting scopes, guns, and even four wheeler accessories.The guys also discuss some strategies they think will be helpful on the trip, and where they might be able to find some bulls.
