Where Will You Find Your Big Buck This Year?

Bob Rogers

Weekend, Oct. 20-21, 2018 - I don’t know a deer hunter who has not wished – and even planned – for bagging a big buck every hunting season. Wanting and doing are, of course, two different things. But it starts with planning and scouting.  For example, if you know the location of land that typically produces big bucks every year, you need look no further. Just begin making plans to settle in, take the necessary precautions to avoid spooking the critters while also avoiding the sometimes calamitous array of other hunters who may also know what you know:  when and where to set up a stand.

Most of America is whitetail country and game agencies have done a marvelous job managing both the habitat and the deer that live on it. And that’s where you’ll find most of the country’s deer hunters.  Human population is the key.  In the vast West where both whitetails and mule deer roam – the whiteies there are considerably smaller than those of the Midwest, South or East – most hunters are after the much larger mule deer.  As this is written, a major area for mulies in our part of Wyoming opened on October 15, five days ago. Just prior to the opening, a short drive into ranch country where deer in herd numbers gather to feed on the remains of alfalfa fields following the annual hay harvest, it is never difficult to see some big aging mule deer bucks. They won’t be so easy to photograph this weekend however since they can tell by the increased dirt road traffic – and maybe the sinking sun headed to the southern hemisphere – that it’s time to brush up on their escape routes. Some of the biggest bucks, however, ignore open fields and are found in thick sagebrush, which is where I favor for most of my own hunting.

But there are lots of places in any western state nearly all famous for producing trophy bucks where careful research well before the hunting season opening will provide some handy hints for big deer, some of which we’ll show you in this episode of…

Guns Are Steadily Blowing Through the Windy City

SHELBY MURDOC | Monday, October 15, 2018  — It was a relatively quiet weekend in Chicago, recently. Only nine people were shot on Saturday and eleven on Sunday. Of those, two died of their wounds. The Windy City is, of course, home to many great restaurants, some fantastic museums, and also to much of America’s gun violence. It is a basic truth that a disproportionate amount of gun crime occurs in places where restrictions on gun ownership are most severe. Large cities such as Chicago, New York City, and Washington usually have a reputation for increased—if not rampant—crime, and the majority of sprawling metropolises are controlled by Democrat politicians, virtually all of whom insist on disarming the residents of their crumbling urban empire.

Democrats Now Chewing on Their Own Cud

BOB ROGERS | Monday, October 15, 2018 — In 2013 Democrats held command of the United States Senate which at the time had to assure confirmation of Barack Obama’s three picks of judicial nominees to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit – the same court from which emerged the newest Supreme Court Justice, pro-gun Second Amendment Constitution originalist Brett Kavanaugh. A popular tool that Senators of both parties have used for generations is the filibuster which, for example, Senator Rand Paul famously used in a 13-hour marathon to protest Obama’s choice of John Brennan as CIA Director. Years earlier during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, the Democrats relied on the filibuster as the implement to deny Reagan’s appointees to the Supreme Court. [read more]

The Anti-gun Gang Mentality

STEVE COMUS | Monday, October 1, 2018 —Three items in the news recently address different elements of the same game – get rid of privately owned guns. Doesn’t matter whether we’re paranoid. They are still out to get us. The real target of the gun grabbers is not guns at all. It is us. They want to take from us our freedom, our souls and all that makes us independent spirits. The anti-gun crowd is using extra-governmental action to: (1) control government, and (2) control the populace as a result. They don’t want us to own guns, smoke tobacco or even use plastic drinking straws. Through their actions, they want what most dictators never achieve – complete domination. [read more]
