The Ascent Series in Subalpine Works Great for a Variety of Destinations and Game.  Photo Taken in Michigan.

It’s hot in Texas…but I didn’t let that stop me from hunting this summer.  Being blessed to have year round opportunities to chase game I didn’t want to miss any chances I might get.  With that, I needed something that I could wear to keep me concealed but also not cause me to melt into a puddle of sweaty mess.  Talking with a Sitka representative he recommended giving the Ascent Series a shot.   Continue Reading…

Elevated Practice

April 13, 2016 — Leave a comment

Practice is paramount for us hunters. If we have one goal each season it’s to make a quick clean kill on our quarry.  That practice is even more important for those using archery gear if we expect to perform with the required consistency to be that efficient killer.  I’m thinking that if you follow this site you are dedicated to repeated shooting in the off season to meet your accuracy goals during the season.  However, if you hunt from a treestand, how many of you shoot from an elevated perch when you practice?  While any shooting is beneficial you should be sure to practice how you will hunt.

I love Oklahoma for a few reasons: the endless oak trees, the crispness of the fall mornings, and the mass amounts of whitetail all over the state. I spent some time hunting whitetail outside of Ada, OK last year and came home with biggest buck I have ever harvested.

In Part I of this test, we discussed the importance of understanding the science behind camouflage. By way of review, camo is intended to help one “blend in” with his or her surroundings by reducing the appearance of the human silhouette. This is accomplished through one of two pattern options: macro/micro patterns and photo-realistic patterns. Macro and micro patterns (Fusion, ASAT, Vias, Verde, Optifade, etc.) are build on the same basic principal: no discernible pattern means less identifiable shape. The use of asymmetrical design aids in breaking up the human silhouette and helps you go undetected (theoretically). Photo-realistic patterns (Mossy Oak, Realtree, Kings Camo, etc.) use multi-layered images to simulate the forested background in which you are hunting. Continue Reading…
