Reality Hunt Club – Webisode 43: Doe Management

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

In this webisode, watch me shoot a nice management doe. I briefly discuss how we try to shoot different ages/weights of does to equally distribute the harvest over all the age classes. Don’t laugh too hard when I say “passion” a couple of times when I meant to say “passive”. Also, watch how fast these mature does can smell you if the wind swirls and changes directions. Enjoy the video.

Reality Hunt Club – Webisode 41: 911 is Dead

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

I have never seen a deer make legendary status like a buck we call 911. We first started following him during the 2008 – 2009 season. There were 3 of us hunting this deer over this time. His movements were like a ghost. Every once in a while we got a couple of photos of him and then he would disappear for a while. Then this year, we figured him to be at least 5 1/2 years old, one of us said that we were going to get him. Sure enough, the unpatternable deer started showing up at feeders before season, and low and behold he started showing up on one of our food plots at night regularly. All 3 of us hunted him hard but with no luck. I even saw him run across a lane but no shot. Then one morning one of the other members, Bill Vincent, came up and sure enough shot him. He knew it was a nice buck but not quite sure it was 911. Watch this video to see the recovery and the photo history of this legendary buck.

Reality Hunt Club – Webisode 40: Blur Buck for Me

Monday, December 12th, 2011

After hunting hard since September 10, I finally got a shot at a mature buck. I had a few chances at Sway but just could not close the deal. During the pre rut and rut, all I could see was young bucks chasing. Well,this morning late in the rut, I made it happened. We call him the Blur buck because we always got trail camera photos of him that were blurry due to him running by the camera. Watch the video for the story. He is not the biggest on the club, but he is 4 1/2 years old and my reward for hunting hard this year. I am proud of him. Enjoy the video!

Videoing With My iPhone 4S

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I got a new Apple iPhone 4S and realized that it shoots 1080p HD video and immediately thought that it might be good enough to use for my videos of this show. I did some testing and it worked great. Watch this video and see how well it works.

Timber! There Goes My Trail Cameras

Monday, December 5th, 2011

We just got a new lease this year and it is a 100 acres of clear cut that was recently put back out in pines. We put a couple of feeders out with our new Moultrie M80s cameras. This worked great until one day a storm came along and blew down the tree the camera was on. We were lucky that the camera was okay but I be darned that two weeks later it happened again. Watch this webisode to see photos and video of these funny occurrences.

Reality Hunt Club – Webisode 39: 3 Legged Buck Still Going…

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Last year I got a series of trail camera photos of this three legged buck. We did not see him any during the season and we figured he did not make it. Then he showed up on trail camera and also, low and behold, he appeared in front of Chuck when he had his video camera. Watch this webisode of this amazing buck who has proven what a survivor he has become.
