Velvet Dreams

Like a lot of hunters out there I have always dreamt about shooting a velvet buck. In my home state of Minnesota where the season opens in the middle of September the chance is VERY slim. There are only a few states that open early enough for even an opportunity of a velvet buck. Luckily for me I can drive over to North Dakota and buy an over the counter archery tag.

On August 31st I will be heading to hunt the bow opener with Heart J Outfitters. Owner Chris Jorde has already emailed pictures of velvet bucks at there Monster Raxx mineral sites to get me excited for the hunt. The days on the calendar can not get marked off soon enough, as my anticipation grows for the hunt I have dreamt about for years.

There are a few bucks on my hit list already, but one stands out above the rest. His name is Wally, and I am hoping to put my tag on his fuzzy antlers. Not only would this help me accomplish a goal I have set out for myself, but will also help out my team on the Monster Raxx Big Buck Contest hosted by http://www.whitetailworld.com. Stay tuned as I update my hunt from the field in a few short weeks.

Panel urged changes in Wisconsin deer program

Review says state should adopt method used by 20 other states

Wisconsin should adopt a program used by 20 other states to help manage its deer herds, modify but not discontinue its use of the Sex-Age-Kill population model and take a more passive approach to managing chronic wasting disease in the southern part of the state.

These were among the leading recommendations of the nine-month review of the state’s deer management practices by the Wisconsin white-tailed deer trustee and committee.

The overall goal?

“It’s about improving the relationship between the DNR and hunters and landowners,” said James Kroll, named deer trustee in October by Gov. Scott Walker. “It boils down to getting people working together for the betterment of the hunting tradition, the deer herd and the habitat.”  Read the rest of this entry »

Winner of the Ross Crave DRT is?

This past Christmas/New Year’s we here at http://www.whitetailworld.com ran a contest with the idea of giving away a brand new 2012 Ross Crave DRT. However, for this contest we wanted to do something far different than we’ve done in the past. Because it was the Christmas season we thought it would be a great idea to run a contest based around the idea of giving. The rules were simple. Nominate someone who you think truly deserves the bow and that person cannot be yourself. Nominate someone who’s sacrificed so much of themselves for others, someone who is down on their luck, someone who is always the first to help but never asks for anything in return, etc.

The replies we received were outstanding. However, many were gut wrenching to read. Something that I don’t think most of us were totally ready for. Yet it did the heart good to see the love, caring, respect and thoughtfulness of so many people that were out to do something good for someone else. The entries were brought before the WTW Staff and a private vote was taken. When the votes were tabulated a clear cut winner emerged.

Cory Danner, Congratulations on winning the Ross Lady Crave DRT! Your husband Bill nominated you. You are exactly the person we wanted to reach with this contest. I hope with this gift you can spend some much needed time with your husband in a tree stand. Congratulations again!
