YeeHaw! Rudy is in town and it’s time to #deertour. Let the action begin.

It’s Almost Time

20121113 091923 Its Almost Time

Oh boy! We have a dusting of snow on the ground, the rut is in full swing and the orange army is mobilizing.

Thursday kicks off the most celebrated holiday in Michigan…whitetail gun season. That crazy day when all of us bowhunters will be joined in the woods by 500,000 gun hunters.

I’ll be spending the morning in the stand and then meeting up with Nick Viau from Life and Longbows to prep for Deertour 2012.

It’s gonna be a blast.

Good luck to everyone heading out this week for the gun opener. Be safe and be sure o your target and what is behind.

The Rut is On

Well it’s that time of the year again! When the crisp mornings and crunching leaves bring out monster bucks chasing, fighting, grunting and dying.

We’ve been seeing rut activity heating up and the big boys are starting to chase. The next two weeks should be rockin and rolling here in Michigan. Good luck to everyone out there chasing the rut!

See you in the woods!

Seeing Some Rut Activity

Well it looks like the whitetail activity is warming up. Quite a few scrapes and rubs in the woods on our way into the stand tonight. The next few weeks should be killer.

Good luck everyone.

Deer Season Is Rocking

Well deer season is rockin and rolling here in michigan. We finally got a good frost last week which should take care of the EHD problem. I’ve been hearing of some nice bucks being taken around the state and was lucky to smoke one myself last Sunday.

Good luck to all my fellow hunters out there.

Be Safe and Shoot straight.

And So It Begins

Well welcome to sweet October folks. As I write this I’m on the ground chasing Whitetails for the first time this year. Have a nice button buck 5 yards away from me wanting to get his picture taken for Huntography.

We have been hit really hard with EHD this year down in southwest Michigan so it’s nice to see a live deer.

I wish the best of luck to all my fellow Michigan hunters this season and hope you all have a safe and successful deer season.

If you happen to get that deer of a lifetime please hit me up via my twitter or email listed below and I’ll do my best to share your story up here on huntography (or come film you tell your story).

Shoot straight and have fun!

Putting a Gobbler to Bed

Well turkey season for the FLG boys starts on Monday so I’m out roosting some monster gobblers this evening.

As I type this I can hear 2 birds sounding off about 300 yards away. Definitely has my blood pumping in anticipation of chasing some monster thunderchickens next week.

Break Out The Bows

Well spring time in Michigan means its time to break out the ole Mathew’s bow and start warming up for turkey season.

The steelhead are spawning in the rivers so it definitely won’t be long and it will be time to send some carbon death through some monster gobblers.

Found this old abandoned treestand while whitetail deer hunting in Michigan. I’m thinking it looks like an API treestand but am not sure.
