This week we chat about my Rut hunting vacation and discuss 2 hunts in particular. These were very exciting hunts for me and I am happy to share them with you.
Today a ramble about why I was away, wrecking a hunting spot and how to avoid some easy pitfalls. WARNING: This episode received ZERO EDITING… Sorry about that…
I have been fighting with random sight issues. I apologize in advance to any users who are trying to get to the site. The podcasts themselves seem to be fine but the site pages are having issues. I will resume production of the podcast as soon as I can get these site issues dealt with.
As always, thank you for the support.
Rut is in full swing so this episode may be a few weeks late but better late than never. Today we discuss hunting tactics for the different phases of the rut. We will cover the seeking, chasing and tending phases. We talk about setup strategies, scent and communication techniques that are best for each phase and other things to look out for.

Well, it is that time of year. The leaves are falling from the trees, the daylight is getting shorter and the cold weather is moving in. You know what that means? The WHITETAIL RUT! This is the time of year every hunter looks forward to. In this episode we discuss what is the Rut? What are the different phases of the rut? What are some rut triggers and supressors? Last we round it out with some tactics on how to bag that buck of a lifetime.
Before we get to the rut I took some time to give my hunting season update. IT has been slow but I had a pleasant surprise. I discuss the BigDeerHunters.com Big Daddy Buck Stick. Last, we finish it off with some feedback and questions.

I’m back with another late night episode of The Bowhunter’s Journal. Since I am a bit pressed for time I had to squeeze this episode in. So, I decided to have a chit-chat episode. I start with a little Jets rant and then jump over to the VP debates that I just finished watching. Next I chat about the Rifle Mountain/Deer Camp work weekend and my dinner mishap. Next I give an update to my hunting season. Last, I finish it off with our first ever Questions and Feedback Segment. We cover choosing a new recurve bow, a tip for a bow hoist alternative, Awesome Notes app for a hunting log, arrow through the hand picture on the Facebook page and tips for setting up trail cameras.

This episode we are going to discuss a few different topics.
First up is my Opening Day report. Had a “kinda” close encounter with a “target buck”
Next, I give my short review of the Scoutlook DeerLog App.
Last we talk about deer glands.I know, I know, it was supposed to be on scouting… I explain that. After I butcher the pronunciation of odocoileus virginanus, I jump into each gland breakdown. There are 8 major glands (and a bunch of not-so-major ones) in a deer body that are used for communication and interaction. We are going to cover the Interdigital, Metatarsal, Tarsal, Preorbital, Forehead, Nasal, Preputial ans Salivary Glands. Much of the information has been conducted by Dr. Karl V. Miller of the Danial B. Warnell School of Forest Resources at the University of Georgia. I also discuss the Vomeronasal Organ (that was a mouthful…).
Let me apologize for the squeaky chair. I am moving the studio around and apparently I haven’t worked out all of the bugs….
I was asked on the Facebook page to provide a list of the items I discussed. I should have put them in the show notes (which I will do now) but here is a separate post with the items.
