    When did you kill your first deer?

    I believe it was in 1993 I was 17 years old. I was a senior in high school and worked part time at Kentucky Fried Chicken. My dad dropped me off at my homemade ladder stand and I'm sure he wasn't very far away. It was in Arkansas. I had a pretty junky xbow. Somebody's dogs were running through...

    I want to go Mt. Lion hunting

    I don't know if this is the right approach or not but here goes. I would like to kill a lion and didn't know if a guy could get in contact with some houndsmen. Yes I realize there are outfitters and guides but that is out of my price range. I'm not looking for a handout. I would be willing to...

    Anyone buy a new bow this year?

    Last new bow i bought was in 2009. I bought a leftover 2008 Bowtech 82 airborne. I have killed 3 Black Bears, a Pronghorn, several Whitetail including a couple P&Y, a few turkeys, coyotes, bobcats, grouse, ducks. It does the job. Although I do admit I would like a new one. I have hunted 12...

Some say big bucks are in most units you just have to find them etc. What would you consider the top unit for trophy pronghorn that has good amount of public land and how many points...

    Decoy for bucks

    My daughter and I were antelope hunting this year and we're watching a buck and three does. We were hid and waiting them out, hoping they would come into range. They were about 500 yards away. Over the hill comes a coyote. That were on guard watching the coyote. They didn't bust out of there but...
