    Deer scent?

    I'm taking my son out for a Jr hunt in the D-19 area on Saturday. Last week (the end of the regular season) it looked as thought the rut had started. I was thinking of getting some deer scent and looking for suggestions. Do they work in So Cal, do they make any Mule deer doe in heat scents...

    Another miss guided California politician

    Although this bill does not have to due with the 2nd amendment or hunting & fishing I though it was important enough to share. Most of the time I don't speak out on this forum about politics and things that have to do with law enforcement, however I feel strongly enough about this bill to do...

    Dog getting chafing

    I bought my GSP a new waterfowl vest and noticed she came home with redness under her rear legs. I assume it's from the vest and it needs to be trimmed more. Can I give her anything to help her heal from the chafing?

    Kisser button?

    So I'm new to archery and in talking to my buddy's guide service the guide recommended something called a kisser button. I looked it up and appears to be a good concept but the guy at the archery store does not recommended it. So I look to you folks for your experience, pros and cons, and...

    Recommendation for a youth 243 deer rifle?

    I'm looking to buy my son a 243 deer rifle for his 12th birthday next month. He's small framed for his age but has handled his 20 gauge fine. His length of pull is a bit short still (I think about 12 may be 13 inches). Any suggestion on a rifle, or experience in this area?

    My G3 deer 2015

    Whats a good starter compound bow?

    I just joined the family into an archery club near my home. My wife and son have started shooting with a recurve bow. I want to join them but would rather use a compound so I can hunt with it later (after I learn a thing or two). I have never used a compound bow and only had limited recurve...

    20 year drought is over

    So my father has not shot a deer in 20 years. He has had many opportunities in the last few years but for one reason or another, he has not pulled the trigger on one. This year my father decided he was getting too old to wait any longer and cashed in all 12 of his points for an X9A tag. Dad...

    Buck down

    My first A Zone deer and my first Wilderness Unlimited deer. I have hunted WU properties for 5 years now. I hunted this WU property for the past 3 years and I finally found him and connected. He made me pay for it though. He ran into the canyon and it was fairly steep and thick.
