The readers have spoken. This list is a collection of items that JCS readers, and myself, have recommended specifically for this post! Before you search “hunting gear” on Amazon or elsewhere, check out these ideas! They will be used for sure!
Heard of Lockdown? Whether it’s real or not, you need to prepare for longer days, and sweet success.
It’s the mantra of so many people who have been served poorly prepared wild game meat. It either tastes too strong, it’s dry, or it just isn’t what they are used to. Here are five ways to ensure that you and your family will be able to share the same enjoyment as me and mine when it comes to ground venison.
Scouting doesn’t have to be overly time consuming or expensive. It begins with digital assistance. Between the uses of trail cameras and the internet you can save an incredible amount of headache and boot tread as you move toward your hunting season.
I just love the idea of my kids finding my journal after I’m gone and seeing all the places I’ve been, or better yet, that we have been together. It would be a shame if I didn’t provide them that opportunity.
I’ll never forget the anticipation I felt while packing to fly on my first out-of-state bowhunting trip. I thought I was going to wear out You Tube looking for videos on the best way to safely, and legally, fly bowhunting equipment without setting off any alarms or being added to a watch list. I was thankful when I found out the truth of how these items are handled. As long as I remembered some basic principles, I had very little to worry about.
Dragging your archery buck on a November morning, throwing hay bales into the loft for a local farmer, or trying to keep up with your bird dog all have one thing in common… work capacity. Start including this exercise in your routine!
I can’t say that I’ve achieved final victory over failure in life. It would be foolish to try to convince someone it’s even possible. Humans fail. Failure, and the results of it are a harsh and painful reality. What I can affirm, is that if I have any true victory or success at all in this life, it is ultimately because of God’s grace.
The idea that wild animals live entirely by instinct and that they will not go or do something they don’t want to do sounds pretty passive. At least until you observe it in the field.
It’s OK! You can confess that you don’t have it all together, that life isn’t all right, and that you need someone to pray for you and with you.
