The Tools You Need to Find and Scout New Hunting Property

By Alex Comstock 

Let's say that this weekend you want to go out and either find new hunting property or scout a new piece of hunting land that you just found. You don't just hop in the vehicle and head out with nothing right? This past weekend, I found a couple of new spots to hunt, and then a few days ago, I went and did a quick scout, and hung a few trail cameras. Whenever I do this, I find a few tools particularly useful to help me hopefully be more successful.

All across america, deer hunters alike are hanging tree stands this time of the year. Hang on stands, ladder stands, prepping climber stand trees, you name it - it's going up. Part of deer hunting that I love so much is how we can all do things differently, use different gear, or have different opinions on certain things all in search of mainly the same goal - to successfully hunt deer.

If there's one thing that can get a deer hunter's blood pumping in the summer, it's velvet bucks.

But what can be learned through doing this? Are there more effective ways to do it than you might think?

It's easy to fall into a routine right? No matter what facet of life, it can be hard to break that routine, even if it doesn't work. When it comes to deer hunting, if you truly want to be successful harvesting mature bucks, the mentality of sitting the same tree year in and year out might not always work out as you'd like. Not to say there isn't that special tree that could produce every year at the right time, but by becoming a mobile hunter, you could be setting yourself up for elevated success.

Tip of The Week | Try Something Completly New This Season

In so many circumstances, it appears to me that deer hunters can easily fall into a pattern that leads them down the same road each and every season. You find yourself doing the same exact thing, putting trail cameras on the same tree, hunting the same stand, walking in footsteps from last year, and the cycle goes on. My challenge to you is this: Do something new this year!

Tip Of The Week | Put a Few Extra Miles on The Back Roads

Tip Of The Week | Put a Few Extra Miles on The Back Roads

By Alex Comstock

Last weekend I was able to do my first "drive" of the summer. Something that I like to do in the summer, and find a lot of value in is simply driving and looking for mature bucks. I have some nights planned where I will glass areas that I already hunt and might be looking for certain bucks, but I also have nights where I like to get into an area, and then just hop on the dirt roads and start looking. For as much as online and aerial scouting can be useful, getting out and actually putting miles on your vehicle can be just as helpful. 

3 Reasons You Shouldn't Rely on Trail Cameras

3 Reasons You Shouldn't Rely on Trail Cameras

For somebody like myself, who loves trail cameras as much as I do, and for as many as I run, what I don't do is rely on them. Trail cameras serve as a tool to my hunting repertoire, not as a crutch. Don't get the two confused. Trail cameras are great, and with the continued improving technology, they are only going to get better and better. What they don't do though is replace woodsmanship, hunting skill, or hard work for that matter. Today I wanted to single out three ways in which I see the most when it comes to relying on trail cameras.
