Deer Processing Made Easy

The hunt is over. Now that you’ve bagged it how are you gonna process it? Take it to the backyard or to a capable meat processor? Butchering and processing your own deer can be exhilarating. With the right tools and a little knowledge, a person can fill their freezer up with that delicious venison in about 45 minutes to an hour. Having a trusted processor take care of the strenuous part can sometimes make the meat just taste better. The first step in processing your deer is to “field-dress” it. This means removing the skin and guts to reveal your future dinner. Some folks hang their deer upside down, some hang them downside up, and others prefer to field dress the animal while it’s laying on the ground with a couple of stones to keep it stable. Having a sharp knife is key and plenty of fresh water will make your job more enjoyable.

Get Your Kids Hooked on Hunting

Chances are excellent that when you think back on how you got involved in the outdoors, you have some good memories of great experiences that shaped you into the hunter you are today. As sportsmen, we are responsible for ensuring that future generations find fulfillment and joy in these same pursuits, and there’s no easier audience for this than our own children. Whether your kids are in diapers or you are paying college tuition, it is never too early (or late) to start them down the road to a hobby and passion that will follow them throughout the rest of their lives. DON’T BE PUSHY Kids most receptive to new things when it is their idea. While the ultimate end game is to have your child in the field with you beaming ear-to-ear after harvesting their first November buck or fifteenth April gobbler, they have to want to do it. […]

Mistakes to Avoid with Hunting Blinds

More and more hunters are choosing the convenience of a ground blind over the traditional tree stand. If you’re thinking of making the switch yourself, or just entering your first season, here are a few common mistakes to avoid with hunting blinds. Not Concealing the Scent Ground blinds are often made from cloth materials similar to your clothes. This means they absorb the scent of their surroundings. So if you store your blind in a dank basement the rest of the year, it’s going to start to smell like it. So remember to air it out and spray it down with a good scent eliminator before use. Hunting immediately after set up Game animals such as deer need time to get used to changes in their environment. While hunting in an open field is certainly possible, a ground blind isn’t likely to go unnoticed. Remember to give them time to adjust […]

5 Tips And Tricks To Make Your Hunting Trip More Comfortable

People have been camping since the dawn of time, and you’d think with all that practice we’d be champions at it by now. Despite all this time spent in the wilderness, either for fun or out of necessity on a hunting trip, we still have a lot to learn. Fortunately, these camping tips & tricks brought to you by Mixer 2 Mower, Life Hack, and BuzzFeed will make your next trek into the wilds just a little easier. Tip #1: Use Sage For Mosquito Control There’s nothing like a night around the campfire. The smell of wood smoke, the primal attraction of the leaping flames, and the smell of marshmallows and hot dogs getting cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, there’s also mosquitoes. While the smoke from the fire will keep some of them away, it won’t keep the bulk of these blood drinkers from crashing your party. Unless you use a bit of […]

Bleaching Skulls: Bleach versus Hydrogen Peroxide

If you want beautiful white skulls to add to your collection, then bleaching is really the only way to go. You can clean a skull until the cows come home, but you will never get that beautiful pristine white without treating it first. However, the term “bleaching a skull” is a bit of a misnomer. It makes less informed hunters believe that you should use literal bleach to get the effect, but the truth is you never want to use bleach on bone. Bleach can remove any excess tissue from bone without a doubt, but it will damage the skull itself in a very permanent way. Skulls treated with bleach become chalky and porous because the bleach has broken down the structure of it, this means the bone will eventually deteriorate into dust. Worse yet, a skull treated with bleach doesn’t really turn that beautiful bleached white that we expect. […]

3 Life Hacks Every Outdoorsman Should Know

If you spend a lot of time in the outdoors, particularly during hunting season, you probably consider yourself fairly knowledgeable. However, there are a few, simple tricks you might not know that can make your season even better. For instance… Hack #1: Eliminate Your “Civilized” Smell Human noses have an evolutionary ability that we adjust to smells we’re exposed to all the time. It’s why you sometimes need to have someone else tell you that you have bad breath. However, if you’re hoping to sneak up on animals on their home turf, your scent will give you away from a long distance. As such, you should “scrub” the civilized scent off of you. Don’t use scented soap, shampoo, or aftershave. Leave your gear in the woods, or if that’s not feasible, pick it in a plastic bag with dirt, leaves, twigs, etc. for a while until that’s what your gear […]

Tips for Taking Your Kids on A Unforgettable Fishing Trip

You’ve been waiting and waiting and now the day is finally here – the day you get to take your children on their first fishing trip. It’s bound to be a day for the memory books, so you want it to be perfect. The best place to start is planning what you’ll need to take with you. Patience. Teaching kids how to fish is going to require a good amount of patience. Plan on lots of snagged lines, fishing poles flung into the water, and kids splashing each other with water. Just remember, the first trip is going to be covering the basics and hoping for the best. Tackle box. You probably already have a tackle box if you’re an avid fisherman. If so, take a picture of it before you leave because it will never look the same once a bunch of little fingers goes through it! Kids love […]
