    Long Range Forecast for Deer Season

    The one thing I was worried about was how much precipitation we were going to get in November, it being a La Nina year. As it stands, the above-normal precipitation won't hit until later in the winter. This is the first I've heard of Kentucky Weather Center. I'll definitely check it out...

    Long Range Forecast for Deer Season

    The CPC has updated their long-range forecasts. The forecast for October-November-December is the first one to which I give any real credence. The bottom line: the next 3 months are going to be warmer than average with average precipitation. This is similar to last year's prediction for the...

    30-30 Fans?

    What blows my mind in all this is how much tastes changed. Back when I first started on this forum, 30-30 and levers, in general, were a lot more popular. I can point to two main factors. The first is fashion. I grew up watching TV after the peak of Westerns in prime time. I was born in'58...

    30-30 Fans?

    Let me just say up front that I am not a big 30-30 fanboy. I had some bad experiences early on trying to use it on Whitetails, and kind of gave up. I don't want y'all to take this wrong. I'm not trying to malign 30 WCF in any way. I just want to be honest. The problems were mine. Even though...

    Homemade Scent elimination feedback

    Hydrogen Peroxide eats organic molecules. In theory it's going to eat anything that causes a stink. However, you have to dilute it way down to make it safe to use as a disinfectant. Remember that H2O2 is used as an oxidizer in liquid fueled rockets. It's powerful stuff. They warn you...

    Homemade Scent elimination feedback

    I've written about ozone before. I've got an industrial ozone generator. I used it on a rental property I was trying to unload, trying to get the musty smell out of a basement that had flooded. Did it work? Yes. If I turned on the generator and let it rip, I could come back down the...

    Homemade Scent elimination feedback

    I was asked to comment on this. 1) For those of y'all that missed it, here is my link to the Shamanic Baking Soda Method: https://genesis9.angzva.com/?p=496 2) Hydrogen Peroxide is a powerful bleaching agent. I wouldn't want to put it on camo clothing.This is what your Great Granny used to...

    Annual Shamanic Baking Soda Rant

    That's one of the main reasons I go for baking soda. I'm always upwind of something. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but most days I've got deer coming from upwind, downwind, crosswind --- I never know which way. Before I started using baking soda, I was getting winded by deer a...

    Annual Shamanic Baking Soda Rant

    I suppose the main qualification was being able to write cogent copy. With D&DH magazine, I just asked and they handed it to me. After that, I had invitations. It never amounted to any money, but I did get free swag.

    Annual Shamanic Baking Soda Rant

    Mind you, I've been posting something about Baking Soda for decades. The article whose link I posted was from 2010. That was back when I was on the D&DH pro staff. The method itself I gleaned from a magazine article from back in the late 80s. This was about a year before I saw the first...

    Annual Shamanic Baking Soda Rant

    This is about the time of year when I start preparing my deer hunting duds for the upcoming season, and this is about the same time of year that I give y’all my Shamanic Baking Soda Rant. Every year, I get a lot of flak for it-- always from guys who never tried it. It has not stopped me so...

    Run 'N' Gun Set Up

    I forgot to include a pic of the portable stump in my earlier post All that's in the bucket is a burlap blind, some camper's cord and some clothes pins. The point here is to travel light. If you put the kitchen sink in the bucket, you won't get very far. I've set up with that sort of rig...

    Run 'N' Gun Set Up

    When #3 son, Angus, got going on his own he said he didn't want to be limited by static stands and blinds. I recommended my version of the portable stump: Shamanic Portable Stump This is an old strategy originally popularized by Dr. Ken Norberg, the guy who used to publish those Deer Almanacs.

    So Why the 30-06?

    This relates back to the Deer Rifle Poll thread. My question for you guys: Why do you think 30-06 ends up being so popular? I picked it as top of the heap myself. Everyone at our deer camp, the entire Shamanic Dream Team, shoots 30-06. The reason is that two of the members are my sons...

    Second Shots

    I'm wondering: how often do y'all ever take a second shot on a deer? When I started hunting back 40+years ago, I went out with a Remington 742 and I was dead certain I was going to need that whole magazine. In those days, you seldom heard a neighbor shoot that he didn't continue shooting...

    Deer Rifle Poll (prep)

    OK. That gives me a good feel. This is interesting. I don't know the last time I asked these questions. I've been on here since 2008. I'm surprise that 7mm-08 now comes close to 30-30. 30-30 used to be #1 or 2 I'll start the poll now.
