Episode 30 – Hunting Update, Deer Camp and Listener 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.


Episode 29 – All About Deer Glands

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….
