Beating the Heat During the Whitetail Rut By Ben “Hawkeye” Schneider

A south wind whips through the few remaining brown leaves. They flutter in the warm breeze as they cling with all their might to the branches of a tall and proud willow tree. The long grass in the field across from me seems to dance with the wind, and a whitetail doe flicks its tail to ward of the biting flies awoken from their slumber during the warm November day. I bask in the warmth of the setting sun's ...

2015 Ford F-150 Test Drive

  Waiting at a stoplight this morning, I’m watching the traffic drive by and start thinking about cars. You can tell a lot about people, what they do, and where they live based on the cars on the road. I count off: pickup truck, pickup truck, sedan, pickup truck, pickup truck, semi, pickup truck. Yep, I live in Nebraska where cows seem to outnumber people and pickups seem to outnumber all other vehicle ...

Mark and Terry Drury the HuntingLife Interview

What’s the biggest mistake New Videographers make and what can they do to avoid that problem?

Ginny’s Moose!

  It has only been a little over 10 years since I started hunting, but it is an experience I really enjoy and it is a sport that I am actually good at. I am not athletic so sports don't come easy to me. But I love the outdoors and being close to nature.  Hunting is not about the kill, it is about the entire experience and if you have never done it, it's hard to explain. I don't know why, but moose have ...

Short distance shooting, Long distance courage! by Sebastian Reece

Growing up having nothing more than my dad showing me how to shoot a bow, I killed my first deer with a bow hardly capable of getting the job done. It had the minimum draw weight, if not even a little less, allowed in West Virginia at the time to legally bow hunt for whitetail. A cheap  hundred dollar Bear combo from Wal-Mart. My Dad and I chased it forever. We were constantly adjusting that bow as it alway ...
