get noticed?

hi my name’s Sarah, my absolute favorite thing to do is bow hunt. i am a fourteen year old girl almost fifteen. yes its true. when i tell people i hunt, usually i get a shocked expression and have to explain. no one ever expects that i hunt, not to mention bow hunt. but anyways, the reason im writing this is to let people know what i want to do with my hobby. i want to attempt to start a hunting show. i know this will not be easy or quick but i believe if i work hard i can acheive this goal. making money doing what i love. sounds incredible. i need some advice on how to get a jump start on this career and what i could do to get noticed. thanks, sarah (:l_5b95ea9766c24dafa9a1ff1c794e237b

Ground blind suprise

Ground blind surprise
What can happen when you least expect it….

In the fall of 2006 I had just gotten back into bow hunting after quite a few years away from it. Seems like teen age girls require a lot of time and maintenance, go figure! So in the quest of picking up a used PSE bow and setting it up to be my very own lethal weapon, I was good to go. Seems like practicing is a great past time, and also finding out that pulling a 70 pound draw takes some real getting use to, so starting with a few shots and working up to many didn’t take as long as I thought. So now comes the part in finding a place to hunt, to see if my new set-up would work. Lucky enough my brother has a farm yard not to far from town, so I did a little scouting around for any sign of hoof prints that were not from his horses.
Sure enough, there was split hoof tracks all around the back side of the yard and trees. You could see where bucks were making their scrapes and tearing up the branches. The problem with that was there wasn’t a tree tall enough or even straight enough for a tree stand. So now I started another quest on what to do in setting up some kind of a tripod stand, but knowing what I know about ground blinds, I decided to go that route.
So in being rather thrifty, or,” tight”(and most people tell me I am) I found a small pop-up blind called a
G-20. As some of you probably know, it’s not all that big, but I decided to give it a try.

So then, I took my blind out to the farm to find a spot that would be suitable. I decided on a spot right behind the machine shed in the brush and weeds. This spot had a good view of the coulee that was about 30 yards away. In along the inside edge of the trees, with the grass and weeds as good cover I saw evidence of a lot of deer activity, so it’s here I decided to put my game camera and left it for a few days before I came back to check on it. Sure enough I had pictures of deer on it the first night it was there, but it was showing that they were coming through in the evenings, right before dark. So I spent quite a few evenings sitting, waiting, watching, all on my 5 gallon swivel top lounge stump. But seldom would any come through before dark. Had a doe or spiker come in on occasion, but there again right at dark. So I would get in the blind about an hour before dark as the camera was telling me that it didn’t pay to be there any earlier.
The set up was really nice as I would park my truck on one end of the machine shed, and my blind was on the other, lots of sneaking there.
This particular evening I was thinking it was going to be another uneventful, bird watching, or an occasional farm cat passing night. I was just about ready to start packing up, and there he was, like a ghost from nowhere, a deer, 15 feet in front of me. . Beings my blind was on the east side, I was completely in the shadows.
It was a small frame 4X4 in (ND) or a (8) pointer in some other states, but, never the less he appeared like a ghost. The buck took me totally by surprise and then my heart started to pound like it was going to explode. The adrenalin took over at that point and I had all I could do to not fall off my bucket.
Trying to regain my thoughts, I had to remember that shooting a bow out my blind was a precise action all by itself. Since there is little space, the arrow had to be out the window before I could draw the bow back. Like a small miracle I made the draw, got centered in the blind, got my sights lined up and…. I MISSED
What!! , I couldn’t believe it but the shot went right over his back. Gone he was, as suddenly as he appeared. But, I could not believe it, there he was again. Evidently the buck didn’t know what happened either. The stars, the moon, the blind, and my lethal weapon all became aligned. It was closer to dark than I wanted. Knocking another arrow as fast and quietly as possible, I replayed what had just happened and took a few deep breaths and let another go. This time things went my way, it sounded like I hit a tree the way it cracked, but there were no trees on his far side. The buck spun and was gone in one half of my heartbeat, leaving me there, heart still pounding in the chest.
Now it was almost dark and I was thinking I’d look for him in the morning, so I packed up my things and took the shaky leg walk back to the truck. Heart was still pounding. By the time I had everything in place it was dark. In driving out of the yard, my thoughts were of where he would go, how far, how good of a hit it was. So out the short drive with the lights on I slowly turned on the road with my lights sweeping the field, nothing there. Then as I got to the corner of the yard I swept my lights to the right into a harvested bean field, behind and close to where the blind is. He didn’t go 40 yards, there he was piled up. My heart started pounding all over again at the sight of him laying there.
It was truly a “muzzy moment”, even if the buck wasn’t as big as some that were caught on the camera.
The bigger bucks never showed themselves during daylight hours. With being wound up with excitement, I had to call my buddy Paul and by brother Dan, I think they both told me to slow down and repeat what had just happened.
So this is my first experience with a ground blind and I’m totally hooked on them , yes I do have one now that is large enough to draw a bow in, much easier and more comfortable to move around in.
With looking into all the options that are out there, and the equipment for bow hunting, my wife and I have set up our own web store for archery related products with competitive pricing for everything from bows to blinds and more, so check it out and see what you think about thebowbarn,com and drop us a line or a story about you’re hunting experience.

High Spirit: Celebrating Thriving Wildlife By Ted Nugent

High Spirit: Celebrating Thriving Wildlife
Recent Pope & Young banquet spurs
many thoughts.
By Ted Nugent

cover

 My eyes virtually bugged out of my face, little rivulets of drool forming at the corner of my trembling mouth.  I hyperventilated.  My heartbeat and pulse thumped like a hyper speed metal rock’n’roll double bass drum from hell, and the hair on my arms and neck quivered and rose to the occasion.  The sheer outrageous sea of hornage before me was beyond my wildest big-game dreams.

 Along with hundreds of families from around the world, I was staring at four walls covered with the most beautiful, stunning mounted heads of the world’s largest deer, elk, moose, buffalo, caribou, antelope, muskox, bighorn sheep, cougar, grizzly, polar and black bears ever seen in a single setting.  This was the 40-year anniversary of the Pope & Young club’s bi-annual trophy awards recording session, and a grand celebratory spirit consumed the Salt Lake City Convention Center.  The Spirit of the Wild glowed all around.

Celebrating Thriving Wildlife

 Numerous world records had once again been broken, and we all knew why.  Since the inception of scientifically based wilkdlife management began at the insistence of hunters in the late 1800s big game populations have improved exponentially year after year.  What a world record elk irrefutably represents is certainly the biggest, baddest, healthiest specimen of its time in more than 100 years, cut and dried.  Literally.

 The evidence is inescapable.  Record-book deer, elk, bear, moose, buffalo, antelope, caribou, cougar and others proves conclusively that this incredibly disciplined, ultra selective trophy hunting community performs the ultimate benefit for wildlife populations.  In order to qualify for the Boone & Crocket, Pope & Young  or various state record-keeping organizations, a big-game animal must be healthy and almost in every instance, very old.  And in the animal world, very old equates to being beyond breading capability or providing any tangible benefit to the herd.  In most cases, older male specimens are banished fro m the herd and go off on their own to die a slow, agonizing death by starvation or being eaten alive by other predators.

 It is interesting to note as well that most older critters that would set world records are never encountered by hunters and vanish without a trace.  I am glad that so many are taken by hunters not only for the thrills and challenges of the hunt and the food they provide the hunter’s families—plus incredible sums of revenues generated via these hunts— but mostly importantly for the valuable data they have provided over the years for further and better management information.  Even in death, these majestic beasts benefit the wild, their species and mankind.  Celebrate the Great Spirit!

 Like The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), Ducks Unlimited (DU), The Federation of North American Wild Sheep (FNAWS), The Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Whitetails Forever, Pheasants Forever, The Grouse Society, Quail Unlimited, Trout Unlimited, the Mule Deer Association and so many conservation organizations dedicated to these precious renewable wildlife resources, it is very easy to see why wildlife is thriving in North America like nowhere else in the world.  Even in the face of dramatically dwindling habitat, game and non-game species are doing great because these hunting organizations’ hands-on understanding of real wildlife needs and conditions drive us to manage habitat and harvests accordingly.

 Many wildlife lovers outside the hunting community join us in this glowing success story.  Even the famous TV personality Steve Irwin, “The Crocodile Hunter,” states quite emphatically in Scientific American magazine, that “habitat destruction” is the most important issue facing his home county of Australia, here in America and the whole wold today.  Those who actually walk on the wild side know this truth.  I repeat, wildlife habitat is where our air, soil and water quality come from.  Everybody should be helping these hunting organizations.  If intellectual truth instead of emotional hysteria motivated everyone, they would.

Celebrating Thriving Wildlife_2

 Those ignorant souls who criticize and condemn trophy hunters are absolutely full of baloney.  First of all, most trophy animals are taken by chance, as a rare lucky encounter with an outsized beast coincidentally comes together for some fortunate hunter just out to hunt.  And in virtually every case, dictated by laws and standard hunters ethics, all the valuable meat is utilized way before any head is taken to the wildlife artist taxidermist.  The facts are clear.

 With literally thousands and thousands of entries every year into many record books around the country, these staggering numbers occur every year, but only represent a minor fraction of the overall annual harvest of all species.  That reality adds up to an amazing dynamic truth just how renewable these resources truly are.  Isn’t it ridiculous that anyone believes there could even be an anti-hunting argument?

 You would have to be pretty dam stupid to deny more than 100 years of consistent evidence.  But then there have always been stupid people.  I can only hope that they wake up and smell the wonderful, gargantuan field of roses that shine before them.  I often wonder just what they are trying to accomplish.  I guess weird will always be weird.

 Meanwhile, I am going to continue to support all these great hunting/conversation groups.  They work tirelessly throughout the year raising millions and millions of dollars, donating by millions and millions of hunters across the land, all for the continued benefit of wildlife and wildlife habitat.  It is truly the greatest success story in the history of the world.

 When I travel to Africa, for example, it is so very obvious how it all works.  Where I see thriving populations for elephant, rhino, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah, cape buffalo, kudu, eland, sable, gemsbok, giraffe, warthog, impala, zebra, wildebeest, nyala, reedbuck, klipspringer, blesbok, bontebok, tssessebe, duiker, steenbok, and all those fascinating wild creatures, it is always on wild ground where legal hunting is an ongoing business.  Conversely, where I see no wildlife at all, there are goats, cattle, vineyards, golf courses and “No Hunting” signs.  Intellectually, the choice is ridiculously obvious, unless of course feeling good is more important than doing the right thing.  As a hunter who lives with these awesome beasts.  I will continue to dedicate my life to educating and motivating people to do the right thing.
