Cell Phones While Hunting - Good or Bad?

By Alex Comstock

Back in November, I received a text from a buddy saying how he had just messed up an opportunity at a buck because he was on his cell phone, and by the time he realized the buck was even in the area, it was too late. He couldn’t put his phone away, grab his bow and get drawn back before the buck was through all of his shooting lanes. As I was texting him, it became clear that this would become a good blog post storyline, so today, that’s exactly what we’re discussing.

This year up to this point, shed hunting here in northern Minnesota has been pretty much stagnant as we still have a ton of snow outside. Just recently though, as of last week, the temperatures have started to rise and the snow levels are starting to drop.

Shed Hunting: Worthwhile or Waste of Time?

Shed Hunting: Worthwhile or Waste of Time?

By Alex Comstock

I absolutely love shed hunting. There’s simply no question about it. As I’ve thought of it though recently, I’ve begun to wonder if my passion for shed hunting becomes a detriment to my hunting success. It’s not what I believe, but this is more of an observation and it generated a question that I wanted to talk through in this blog post to get you thinking. I know some absolute killers that shed hunt seemingly everyday in the spring, but I also know some great deer hunters that think shed hunting, specifically, can be a waste of time. So, who’s right? Or is there even a right answer?

Here in my home state of Minnesota, there’s still feet of snow out in the woods. In fact, where I live has seen record amounts of snowfall in February, with over 30 inches of accumulation over the duration of the month. So, you could say my scouting hasn’t been too intense yet. But, if accessing the woods is a little easier for you, and your neck of the woods doesn’t represent the North Pole, then by all means you should be out scouting for whitetails right now. And today, we’ve got a great Q&A interview with Jeff Sturgis of Whitetail Habitat Solutions talking all things scouting and you should be looking for.

Here's How To Figure Out When To Start Shed Hunting

By Alex Comstock

It’s mid to late January. You can’t go sit in the stand anymore because deer season is over. But you still want to be out doing something related to deer. This time of year, deer enthusiasts across the country start hitting the timber in search of something else and that’s shed antlers. Shed hunting is something a lot of us look forward to doing every winter/spring, but when should you start? You don’t want to be out there too late. Things happen such as rodents getting a hold of them, or maybe others shed hunting on the property you do first. But in the same breath, you don’t want to start too early either. The last thing you want to do is push deer out of an area before they shed and then subsequently not have any antlers to look for. So when do you start? Here’s what I do.
