The Harsh Reality for EVERY BOWHUNTER

Big Game
Bowhunting
Whitetail

It's that time of year when all the stars begin to align, the weather is cooling down, and it's finally go-time.  You've waited all year long for this, and you're going to do everything in your power to spend the maximum amount of time in the field.  How many times do you tell yourself that this task or event can wait until after hunting season?  It's so easy to get caught up in the mindset that hunting season is priority because there is only a fixed amount of time you're able to hunt each calendar year.  

This week on the Pennsylvania Woodsman, Mitch dives into some personal dilemmas he is having balancing his everyday life and the desire to hunt hunt hunt!  The conversation is more open ended and philosophical then direct.  He shares with us his learning curve being a father and husband while also trying to chase his passion in the whitetail woods.  Mitch is open with everyone about how he really struggles keeping his priorities focused during the hunting season and not allowing himself to put his family and loved ones behind hunting.  Time management can be difficult in life, especially when you have other responsibilities that force you from doing the things you want to do.  Even though hunting has so many positive attributes, the harsh reality is it can become a selfish endeavor with ugly consequences if you're not careful.  If this is something you battle, hopefully this episode lets you know that you're not alone!  Good luck to everyone this fall!

We have our first success story of the year this week on the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast!

Chris was invited out to Kentucky by a fellow professional archer and was blessed to hunt a very lightly hunted and secluded farm. This episode timed out well with John recently returning from his own early season hunt, so the two were able to bounce new experiences off of each other.

Chris is a great story teller, but the story is only half the episode this week. John and Chris also talk about several lessons they learned from hunting new states with different terrain and circumstances. Chris talks about hunting corn early season, which is not something people talk about a lot. The guys also talk about using ozone out in the field, and the things they have learned from using it for several years now. Last but certainly not least, Chris and John talk about Oklahomas CWD rules, and how it makes out of state hunting a little more challenging now that you can no longer bring whole deer from other states back into Oklahoma. They also discuss a few Oklahoma CWD thoughts as well, so listen in and feel free to give your thoughts on the subject on the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast social media pages.

We dive into key factors that a property needs to have to help manage deer, his approach to his past few hunting seasons, getting outside his comfort zone and his story on his 170” buck that was on a 2 acre wooded lot.  We wrap up the conversation by discussing what hunting PA means to us and his Pennsylvania Woodsman Podcast on the Sportsmen’s Empire.  

To start things off in the podcast Mich briefly introduces who he is and we spend the first 15 minutes just having a fun bs session.  We then start talking a little bit about how running our podcasts have helped us over the last few years.  Mitch shares his thoughts on what a property needs to help manage deer.  For this aspect Mitch shares the importance of entry and exit routes.  We discuss the plans for the upcoming 2022 season here in PA.  This was a fun discussion because we both have full time jobs and shared how we plan on not blowing up our main areas when we can hunt if the wind doesn’t allow it.  I think a lot of people can relate to this aspect of the discussion.  Mitch shared his strategies for hunting a specific buck vs a general buck/deer. I asked Mitch how he goes about limiting his mistakes on his own property, his best of 2020 season in which he shot a 170” and the struggles of 2021.  Mitch shares the importance of gaining knowledge and intel by getting boots on the ground and getting outside his comfort zone.  Wrapping this episode up we chat about what hunting PA means to us.  Hope you enjoy this episode and look forward to next week!

We've been hunting this place for about 5 years now and without a doubt the people that always kill bucks are the ones hunting 100 yards from the road in the corner of a soybean field. It's almost comical to come back to camp covered in mud, blood & sweat from your hunt to find someone else at camp standing over a big buck, looking like they haven't even shed a drop of sweat. In this episode, you'll hear us recap the trip and talk about our strategy going into the hunt, as well as some changeups we made that resulted in a couple of dead deer and a great way to kick off the 2022 season!

The excitement is palpable as archery hunters are taking the woods all around the country. There’s nothing quite like those first few crisp fall mornings, sneaking in close to bedding, or watching deer vacuum up white oak acorns as they pack on weight before the rut. While the early season is full of excitement, it can also be extremely challenging. Changing food sources, shifting home ranges and increased hunting pressure can make it tough to pin down exactly where the deer are right now. This is where in-season scouting comes in.

In this episode of the How to Hunt Deer Podcast, Josh talks with Aaron Hepler. Aaron is a public land hunter from PA, and spends a lot of his time hunting in a big woods setting. In season scouting is pivotal for Aaron’s strategy, and is crucial for getting on deer in the early season.

This discussion is more about how Janis got to where he is now. Janis discusses his younger days of working on ranches in Colorado, to time in Alaska, Utah, and eventually Montana. 

Paul’s been traveling the world again for work but gearing up for deer season. Andrew was able to take an afternoon in the DSA at KillDeer plains to hang out in the tree. Nothing happening, but it was nice to get back into the woods and work out the kinks.

Deer archery season opens across the entire state of Ohio on September 24. Don’t forget to check out the OHLAP program for new properties across the state. There is a public rule shearing on 9/14/22 at 7pm at the District office at 1500 Dublin Rd Columbus OH. Keep an eye out for EHD as we move closer to the first frost. Also be on the look out for the spotted lantern fly in trees near your home and in the woods. This bug is another invasive one that can cause major damage to our woodlands. Report any findings to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Who doesn’t fantasize about wielding a pistol like Doc Holliday? Pistols and hunting are controversial. Loathed by some hunting groups to the point of “you ain’t using it” to celebrated by others. The pistol’s effectiveness is dependent upon the individual shooter’s experience and willingness to put in the reps to train with it.

Caleb Barnett of Underwood Ammo is back. Chris and Caleb discuss handgun training choice, training tips and where and how to carry. Each shooter is unique and requires different things from a handgun but we all share the same end result…proficiency! Being able to draw, shoot and hit the target is the most important aspect of carrying a handgun.

In this episode of the Houndsman XP Podcast we break it all down from handgun choices, training tips and the importance of where the pistol is carried.

John is back from his early season Nebraka whitetail hunt, and he is ready to break down what he learned this week on the Oklahoma Outdoors Podcast. It was a quick trip over a long weekend full of car trouble, getting stopped by land owners, learning a heck of a lot about whitetails, and having a blast doing it all. Everyone has heard that whitetail deer are "creatures of edge" and over Labor Day weekend John really got to learn what that meant. The mixture of crop fields, CRP, and timbered creeks gave ample opportunity to see how deer use different terrain features and vegetation types to their advantage. John also learned that not all soybeans are created equal, or have the same appeal to deer.

One of the best surprises of the trip though, was how easy it ended up being to gain access to private land. It definitely helped having a local inside man to speak on John's behalf, but over all most of the people John interacted with were happy to help or at least give some knowledge. John left his house with 110 acres to hunt, and driving home he now has access to over 1,300 acres for future trips! So even though he came home with a giant pot of tag soup, the trip was far from a waste, and the knowledge he gained on this out of state trip will absolutely help him bag more bucks back on his home turf.

On this episode of Huntavore, Nick digitally sits down with Rick Casey, CEO of CHARD Products. Rick has a passion for wildgame, growing up in the U.P. of Michigan, Rick has fond memories of bringing in deer to the family garage and working together to create the amazing dishes of his yesteryears, like his grandma’s potato sausage. Rick also goes into how hunting and venison has impacted the design of his products, helping them be more effective for the hunter’s kitchen. If meat means more to you than just a fuel source, then this is your episode. Settle on in for a nostalgia filled episode of Huntavore.

Rick Casey is a problem solver. He sees products and notices changes that can be made to make them better. He has turned this trait into successful businesses. So when Rick had the chance to improve meat processing equipment, he fell back on his upbringing. Holidays in the U.P. , cutting venison with his family. What worked? What did he wish was changed back then? How could I improve the process of bringing wild game to my family’s table? Through this Rick has improved many of his CHARD Products.

https://linktr.ee/chardproducts

In our chat, Rick was so open about how much food means to him. Taking the time to not only sell a product hunters could use and be content with mediocre, Rick had to tinker and think about how he used poorly designed products before, and fix those quirks. Even if it was widen the legs to make it more stable, or using steel gears instead of plastic for a more robust build. These are changes that can help hunters step up their processing game. Ricks idea of making processing and cooking your wildgame is what he called closing the circle. So much effort is given preparing, executing, and finishing the hunt. Why stop there?

Conventional whitetail wisdom espouses a few basic tenets for early season hunting: find where the deer bed, find where they eat, and don’t hunt mornings. While hunting mornings in the early season is very different than, say, November 5th, early season morning hunts can still be very productive. In this episode, guest Mark Haslam shares the strategies he’s used to kill mature bucks in the morning during the early season four years running, including his most recent South Carolina velvet brute.

Mark Haslam is a deer hunter and land manager from Georgia who spends most of his hunting time in South Carolina. Mark runs southeastwhitetail.com, hosts the Southeast Whitetail podcast, and writes for Wired to Hunt on Meateater. He was also named the 2020 National Deer Association Deer Manager of the Year hunts and manages his family farm in South Carolina.

Travis explains ideal locations to emplace wildflowers on the landscape. Travis details the observation and activities that occur around these locations and how attractive plantings can be for deer. Also, wildflowers can increase the number of insects and birds that prey on these insects, like turkeys.

Travis explains annual and perennial plants that should be considered and how attractant they are to deer. Jon details some cover crop options that work well to attract deer while removing pressure off wildflowers. Travis explains the intense interest of deer in sunflower planted areas, and a trick he uses to reduce deer browse. Both Travis and Jon explain the federal programs, and the potential benefits and what route they prefer to go with clients.

Travis explains more on-site selection, where to start and ideal conditions to establish pollinator plantings. Travis identifies the time required to establish plantings and the related long term and short-term stance on plant selection. Travis explains the ideal times to establish plantings and consider competing plants, especially cool season grasses. Travis details the minimum equipment he uses and how he has shied away from expensive tools like a no till drill. Travis suggested the benefits of transitioning from grass to wildflowers can be great to landowners and reduce workload.
