New Hampshire Buck

Someday, I am going to devote an entire article on the most important ingredient required for a successful hunt. The ingredient? Time.I can’t remember a year when I have hunted over such an active scrape line, complete with fresh rubs and extending over 650 yards. It felt like I was finding fresh sign each time…

Buck Scrape

Maybe it’s the changing weather or the feeling of hunting with a firearm in place of my bow, perhaps it’s both, but I feel more excited to hit the woods this time of year than any other. Daybreak on Saturday morning found me huddled up against the base of a mature pine tree trying to…

New Hampshire Archery Doe

It’s true, I finally shot a deer. It wasn’t the biggest deer, but hey, it was a great time in the woods. The kill was extremely quick and clean. What more could I ask for? I was perched in an oak tree over some very fresh sign from deer feeding on acorns. The leaves were…

4PT16.9 – Swing and a Miss! 1

“For it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game!” How many strikes do you get when deer hunting before you are out? Is it three just like in baseball? I hope so because that means I’m still in the game. The story goes like this. I had only been in position for…

Young Deer, Fawn

Other than a rather intense encounter with a bear a mere twelve feet away from Sam and I on Friday night, the weekend was pretty slow in the woods. It was Sam’s first time out “deer hunting” with me and he mentioned afterward that he’d rather not bear hunt again until next year when he’s…

Whitetail Deer

I finally figured out what it is about turkeys that drives me nuts. It’s the way they look at you out of the side of their head – beaks pointing one way, eyeballs another. Woodchucks do the same thing. They appear to be looking one way, but you know they are actually looking at you.…

Shoot for Age or Shoot for Points? 2

Deer Abby: I have been reading articles on The 4 Pointer Blog for as long as it has been written but haven’t read one that would help me deal with a problem I had last year.  Since the deer season will once again get underway out here in Wyoming I thought it appropriate to seek…

4PT16.6 – Insane Hunting 3

My preseason plan is in danger of completely falling apart. I was supposed to have a New Hampshire archery deer in the freezer already and well on my way to a Vermont archery deer. I haven’t seen much of anything in New Hampshire but did come close one night (Stupid Wind), and blew a chance…

4PT16.5 – Patterning Mr. Small 4

Trail Cameras can be a blessing and a curse. They provide twenty-four hour surveillance in the woods, which is a real benefit to a guy like me who always feels too busy to find the time to scout. On the other hand, they can drive you nuts because you discover that all those deer tracks…
