Take a Kid Hunting

Beka and Isabella on the trail

There was never a point in my life where I thought, “When I have a baby I’m going to take them hunting with me before they can even walk.” But that’s sort of what happened. When I got pregnant I assumed I would be able to leave Isabella with my husband while I hunted. As […]

6 Steps for Pre-Season Prep

Beka Garris Practicing

At the time of writing this, deer season is just days away here in Ohio, and I’ve been running down a mental checklist in my head of all the things I need to do and have ready for opening day. I’ve always been a very prepared person, so these things are just something I do […]

Turkey Traditional Style

Fred Eichler with nice Turkey he shot with his bow

By Fred Eichler No, this is not a recipe on how I like to cook turkeys. It is about my favorite way to hunt turkeys. I’m not really sure if I love to hunt turkeys or if they are just the only thing that is really huntable in the spring besides pigs, bears or fish. […]

The Five Cardinal Rules of Hunting Public Land

Hunting with a Bear Kodiak and 3Rivers wood arrows

By Beka Garris On Instagram @bekagarris | If you frequently hunt public land, I am sure that you have had your share of mishaps and run-ins with other hunters. You’d like to think that as hunters, we are all on the same page and therefore will be respectful of others and the area we are […]

Finding the Right Hunting Pack

Badlands 2200 and Badlands Monster

Like many people, I own more than a few pairs of shoes. Dress shoes, tennis shoes, hunting boots… The list goes on. There is not one shoe that works for all occasions. The same goes with hunting packs. From chasing elk in Colorado, whitetails in Indiana, or hogs in Florida the hunting pack you need […]

When the first day of turkey hunting arrives you need to have confidence that your gear performs when you get within […]

Setting Up a Clicker for Hunting

Denny Sturgis Jr showing a clicker on his hunting recurve bow

A clicker, or draw check, makes an audible noise (click) when an archer hits his desired draw length. They are used by almost all Olympic archery shooters to achieve the precision accuracy needed to succeed in that field. They work great as a signal, or trigger, to release the arrow. I recently decided to use […]

How to Make a Ghillie Suit Fit

Ghillie suit sized and adjusted

The ghillie suit is an excellent addition to the traditional bowhunter’s bag of tricks. The textured camouflage clothing of a ghillie suit is designed to break up your outline to help you blend into your environment. Ghillie suits are also called sniper suits as they are used by military sniper units all over the world. […]

Spring Turkey Hunting Tips

Denny Sturgis Jr with 7th big tom turkey

The point-blank, booming gobble shattered my peaceful daydreaming session while turkey hunting. My blind was positioned in a brushy fence row and I could only shoot straight ahead into the harvested bean field or directly behind into a long abandoned, fallow field sprouting trees. The gobble had sounded from straight down the fence row. I […]
