One of my most memorable hunts. I was able convince this buck that coming closer to my stand was a good idea. To this day, one of the biggest bodied deer I have ever harvested.

Quick video from the second weekend of my 2014 season. Close, but no cigar!

Checking trail cameras, setting up tree stands, and trimming shooting lanes are 3 important parts when preparing for every bow season.

My 2010 season will be one I will always remember, but at the same time try to forget. I had an encounter with a buck I named Shipwreck. It was a learning experience I will never forget. Here is Part 1…


Here is the 2nd part of my 2010 season…


In the spring of 2013 I didn’t get much time to get out and shed hunt because my daughter was due just about any time. But I did get out a couple times and here is what happened…


I love hunting on opening weekend. Here is a quick video showing my 2010 doe harvest along with a pretty cool buck encounter.


Here is a quick video showing how bad the bugs were while I was out setting up my trail cameras and mineral stations.

    I’ve been listening to the wired to hunt podcasts and I HAD to check out your website. I really like your articles about entrance and exit routes. The maps were super helpful. I’d be really interested to know if you have any tips on scouting new land and from the map point of view as far as where to start. So more or less a pre scouting strategy.

    Sorry about shipwreck DFW, I remember reading the article and been a follower and customer of Sam’s for awhile, remember his 96 giant article good… But just started listening to podcast recently helps my nights go by at work and really enjoyed your side of the shipwreck story in one of the podcasts… Keep up the good work with Mark and on your own, good luck this fall…

    Keep up the good work Dan! Any thoughts of filming your up coming season?

      Not real sure. Good cameramen cost money and self filming a killshot has too many “what if’s”
