My Best Buck by Zane Graham This past hunting season I was able to harvest the best buck of my hunting career. The buck first appeared at the end of December of the 2014 season on trail camera. He was a symmetrical 10 point with good tine length and showed potential to be a stud if given one more year. I knew he would be at the top of the hit list for the 2015 season. At the … [Read more...] about My Best Buck
As bowhunters, one of the most important pieces of equipment on our bow is the sight.

Sights can range from one single pin up to seven pins on a multi-pin sight. So, how do you know which sight is best for you? Personally, I would say try a few different … [Read more...] about Single Pin or Multi Pin Sight?
Lighted nocks have been on the market for years now and a new color/design is always being released. I have been using lighted nocks for the past three years and would not go hunting without them. They make it much easier to see your shot placement and make finding your arrow less time consuming. These two things are what makes lighted nocks worth the money in my … [Read more...] about Lighted Nocks
Bright Colored D-Loops by Zane Graham As bowhunters, many of us use a release that attaches to a D-loop on the bow string. I think the color of the D-loop is often overlooked, but is important. We pay close attention to the main components of the bow such as the sight and arrow rest, but not so much to the D-loop. In my opinion, the color of the D-loop could determine … [Read more...] about Bright Colored D-Loops
Try A Sight Light by Zane Graham Ground blinds are used by many hunters due to their effectiveness and their ease to set up. One of the main reasons they are effective is the fact that they are dark on the inside to keep game from seeing you. This is great but if you are bow hunting it could hinder your ability to see your sights. With it being dark in the blind the fiber … [Read more...] about Try A Sight Light

A Rewarding Second Chance by Zane Graham September 29, 2012 was opening morning of bow season in west Texas and I headed out to a blind where we had gotten trail camera pictures of a nice 8 point. I had sat in the rifle blind the evening before just to scout and see if I could get my eyes on the 8 point. Sure enough on that cloudy and misty afternoon he came walking in to the … [Read more...] about A Rewarding Second Chance
Aim Low, It's the Way To Go! by Zane Graham If you're an avid bow hunter or have seen bow hunting on t.v. then you've probably heard of whitetail deer "jumping the string." For those of you who may not have heard of this, "jumping the string" is when a deer makes a downward motion before it runs off. The deer will drop down and get its chest very close to the ground as part … [Read more...] about Aim Low, It’s the Way To Go!
Hunting Over Bait by Zane Graham There has been some debate on whether hunting over bait such as a corn feeder should be legal. Where baiting is legal it seems like hunters are in favor of it and where it is illegal the hunters are against it. Coincidence? Personally I think hunting over bait is a good thing. In some states where there is heavy brush cover such as Texas, you … [Read more...] about Hunting Over Bait
