Walter Scott: Remember there are good times to leave the binoculars at home
Most shots with a bow are taken at thirty yards or less. If a hunter is desperate, or the biggest buck they have ever seen, some people will take a shot out to 40 yards. Anything beyond that is pushing one's luck to unacceptable levels. Sunday morning, I planned to hunt for just...

Walter Scott: Man and wife, enjoying nature together
The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are just beginning to cool. I should be in the mood to go bow hunting. When temperatures are warm during the day and do not get very cool at night, deer move to feed only during the wee hours of the morning. The decreasing number of...

Designing a dock over and over again
The nice thing about owning a private lake is being able to do whatever a person wants to do whenever they want to do it. The disadvantage of a private lake is the person that wants something done is the same person that has to do it. As soon as our lake was built, I knew we would...

Abuse from creatures in the outdoors
ast week, my wife and I made a quick trip to Louisiana to help my eldest son prepare his house for sale. It was one of those "how hard could it be?" times when we thought we would work on tidying up a few things taking a day or two and spending the rest of the week visiting friends...

Antler traps attract more than deer
During the late winter and early spring, we spend a lot of time walking about the timber and pasture looking for antlers the deer have recently lost. Last year, I heard about an antler trap. The deer go in, knock off their antlers, and I could come pick them up at my leisure. It...

Proposed bow hunt long time in coming
met Bart several years ago while on a duck hunt in Southern Louisiana. He owns and guides the Chein Noir Farms Guide Service. Bart is the kind of guy a person feels has been a friend for years after only knowing him a few hours. We had a great hunt, great food and time to visit...

Practice, just in case
Bow season is just around the corner (in Iowa). I only mention this for those bow hunters that have been procrastinating worse than I have. A good person practices with their bow year 'round. There are silhouette competitions that make great preparation. There are indoor shoots...
