Thanks for sharing the tips on becoming a better hunter. This may help. I want to be a better hunter. Cheers 🙂
Great information here. I learned a long time ago about deer body language but sometimes you need a reminder. Thanks for the information.
This is so true young bucks move more early in the morning than the bigger bucks that is you see a youngster, wait the bigger ones will follow. The biggest older bucks seem to move by themselves smack dab in the middle of the day thats 2 or 3ish. That I know from experience. They watch from good cover the younger bucks and does early and according to whats happening in the field will they chose to let the sunlight shine on those majestic antlers. The older they get the smarter and less likely thay are to expose thimselvs. But just like use men they like the ladies and during the rut they like us take greater chances. After the morning hunt stay in the stand and even though you saw lots of does earlier and now they have dissapeared that big ol lonly buck will slowly browse around the timber after 12 noon and yes thats where you need to be to get that wall hanger.
When you wear camo to bed
Your computer wall paper is of your dream deer
Wall paper on your cell phone is of Monster Bucks
Do these count?
Also a deer scrape is another way for deer to know the health of other deer sorry just thought i would add another reason. Oh, and also Whitetail Institute has a mineral lick called “30/06 Mineral + that works very well for when a good spot is found.
Hey there, I just wanted to say that you guys are doing a great job with your program “The Hunting Channel”. Keep up the good work. I’ve been working on building hunting websites, dedicated to Trophy Hunting. http://www.TrophyElk.com, http://www.CouesWhitetailDeer.com and http://www.TrophyMuleys.com.
Best of luck to you in the future.
is this amanda? Duwane and i were talking about you this week. he said we should talk.
Question: I have been trying to find archery competitions in my area and have yet to find one. Can you tell me where I can find a list of 3D competitions for North Carolina or in general.
check with these guys http://www.ncfaa-archery.org/

here in West Texas, on about 74000 acres, I can eat good.
HA HA i agree
I appreciate your level of knowledge in the area of deer hunting tactics and treestand safety. I too am passionate about treestand safety mainly because I learned the hardway. Read my story at http://www.chipstuder.wordpress.com.
Excellent tips on tree stand placement. Our gang has a variety of locations, but mostly within 20 – 40 yards from high traffic corridors in the bush. We have a couple of stands near feeding and watering areas mostly used for early morning hunts. The placement of your tree stands can definitely make or break your season.
January is a promising month, along with February! Javelina is one of the best hunts I’ve ever experienced… It’s not the best when the hunts are minimal but its worth it when they all pick up once againb!
love that time of year in the desert southwest
I’ve spent 10 years researching whitetails, and about twice that long hunting them. I hope I’ve learned a thing or two in that time.

Hi, all is going fine here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s in fact fine, keep up writing.
My name is Trevor Watson I have filmed alot of film but I don’t known how to send and I need help
did you run and gun with the full size ghost blind (predator 46″ high) or the run and gun blind (runner, 26″ high)? Seems like the big one would be hard to move around with for turkeys but the small one wouldn’t allow you to use a bow.
Yes the larger one is a bit more cumbersome, but it is definitely better for bow hunting
I’m really inspired along with your writing abilities and also with the layout to your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to look a great blog
like this one nowadays..
This is my first time visit at here and i
am in fact pleassant to read all at one place.
Reblogged this on 323 Archery Shoot and commented:
I still don’t own a trail cam. If I had property I could hunt and trust that the camera would still be there when I get back, I would use one, but other than the mid-Georgia property, a 4.5 hour round trip, I DON’T have anyplace to put one where I could reasonably expect it to STILL BE THERE when I get back. Yes, I know there are security boxes, but in Georgia, every hunter I know owns a chainsaw….
Hi my name is Jake I would love to have my own hunting show its been a dream since I was a little kid I have been filming hunts for a while now and I didn’t really know how to get my foot in the door but this article was a huge help thank y’all so much
Your style is very unique in comparison to other

For the money I really like the M880 a lot. The bushnell trophy cams are also great if you are willing to spend a few more bucks. I am looking forward to seeing your results
Very cool – I highly recommend hunting those coyotes… a very thrilling experience!
Times like this I wish I had a bigger audience to make it worth your while. Any tips?
start with growing your social networks because that is the easiest and wont cost anything then look to SEO, and other white hat tricks to gain higher google placement. Research what key words your audience uses to search the info you provide and incorporate those into your text copy
I haven’t tried them yet but I’m planning on ordering the Bresser Everest ED based on what I have been told about them. They have an 8×42 for $218 and 10×42 for $260. I’ve been told by some people who really know and regularly test binoculars that they are very good binocs and are even better in low light conditions. I think you should try them out and see for yourself. You can only get them online. Amazon has them and a place called OpticsCamp as well.
The Cuddeback Attack IR is the best of all in my option , I get Cuddeback one year ago I would like to say “Worth the Money every Penny your spend”

The g5s never whistle I have a pse brute x shot a nice 10 point buck last fall with them without the other bucks even realizing what happened. They fall a bit but mybe an inch at 25yds but are very accurate and deadly if you hit vitals there dead. Rage broadheads ive had shit luck they dont open all the time when you make short shots and have a tendancy to not pass through with slower bows

Nice post, have up you ever used a traditional bow? I am a bow maker and archaeologist from Dublin. I recently spent the summer crafting bows in Viking LoNg house in Norway, you can read about it in my blog if your interested.
The reason I ask is that, hunting is something that is missing from my research. I was invited by National Geo archaeologist to Washington, for a Mesolithic hunt, with stone tools. I wonder what your thoughts are on that?
I look forward to reading more from you – Stephen
sorry for the late response I too build bows, I have hunted with traditional equipment very little however but I know many guys who are very effective with stick and string
This is perfect! We are buying the inlaws one for Christmas, this came at a good time! Thanks for the useful information!

Just saw your story and watched your YouTube video! Awesome job! I just returned from the Oct 2017 Archery Ibex Hunt and I was fortunate enough to have both my sons with me on this hunt! I just started shooting a bow last year and drew this hunt! We ended up filling my tag and I say we because it was a team effort with my two boys! Harvested a 26” Billy at 63yds. I hope to have the video and photos put together soon! My son captured the shot with his go pro. Oh and yes this was my very first kill with a bow:)
That’s awesome Jack! what an accomplishment congrats to you and your boys

Great article John! From the heart. #hunterup initiative, as John has described it, is about taking the moral high road with our interactions with every person in our lives even those that hate or have different worldviews. This lesson John has shared transcends hunting and is really about making a better world. Giving back rather than taking. Putting others before self. Embracing empathy over judgement. Being the change in the world you want to see happen.
thanks for the kind words Mark

Thank-you for a very well written and helpful post. I too have found the Outdoorsman adaptor to be the easiest to use and the least fiddly (is that a word?). However, I just got an iPhone X and so far, even with Pro-Camera, the photos are not as good as they were with my iPhone 6. I have the adaptor using the wide angle lens–should I have it on the telephoto (bottom) lens?
im sorry i never saw your question, yes you should use the telephoto lens not the wide angle
Pingback: The Death of the Hunting Industry - John Stallone Days in The Wild
Wise words my friend! That’s why it is important to take your youngins camping fishing hiking anything that involves outdoors so that they start getting involved with nature, then you gradually introduce them to hunting youth camps or just simply taking them out hunting with you so they can start loving that lifestyle! Great read my friend.
This is a great post. I think a lot of hunters also forget about targeting/supporting folks from out of town. I moved out west years ago. I hunted back home, and am on completely unfamiliar terrain. It has been fun, but also incredibly frustrating. It would have been far less so if locals offered to help me:
1) figure out the tag system in our state (which is very complicated in western states)
2) figure out strategies that work for the critters in my new state blacktails/elk/bears vs. the standard whitetails/turkey that I have knowledge about from back home
3) e-scout or tell me what I should be looking for for target animals.
None of these would result in giving up someone’s “spot” or adding a number to a hunting party.
Maybe I’m a jerk, and nicer people are being offered these kinds of help, but I could see a lot of guys either not bothering to wade into this quagmire, or trying for a year or two and quitting. It has taken me 3+ years of tag soup, and research and I’m figuring things out (also possible I’m just a crap hunter), but some guidance would have cut the time and frustration down.
In today’s transient/migratory economy we are likely losing a lot of younger (25-35) hunters to the frustration of figuring out new ground.
Bro that was excellent video footage of not only your hunt but what an amazing shot! Not sure if you remember me but I shot an Ibex last Oct with my bow and was able to video it too, just haven’t put the video of my hunt together to put it on YouTube:)
Well you won’t believe this but I drew out for Unit 26 NM Desert Bighorn horn oct 16-31! First year to ever put in for this hunt and I drew it! I would like to use my bow but at the same time I don’t won’t to miss an opportunity for a monster since it is once in a lifetime:)
I’m open to any advise:)
Thanks for the video bro
congrats man thats awesome! Honestly i dont know much about the detail of your hunt but if you have the time and you are scouting a lot and have tabs on good rams I would stick to the bow, you will feel cheated if you pull out the gun. that being said if you dont have the time to spend on the hunt or scout a bunch take a rifle

First of all, Thanks for such a great article about hunting binoculars. You have included all the necessary info which is very helpful for a beginner like me. After reading this, now I am able to choose the best one from your list and I am going to pick the Luepold BX-5 15×56
Good article and important message. History truly is the best indicator that what we are doing is working. If you are interested in learning more on the subject you might find this article interesting. Thanks.
excellent initiative John. As much as depends on me, you have the full support of Rokslide behind you.
Thank you sir! I appreciate you and all you do
Finally, I have found the info which I was searching for so many days you have created a very nice blog keep up the good work and can you tell me if you also write something related to bow hunting?

Thanks for the chance I could never afford.
Awesome story John
I just found IWTHMs podcast, apparently too late. I heard about the raffles and visited today. Will you do this in the future? For an out of stater, is an archery tag OTC so we are guaranteed to hunt?
Love the show!
Yes Tim more than likely we will do it again next year. And yes the tags are OTC for archery deer. If you are interested in a hunt with us we are doing a special right now https://johnstallone.me/archery-deer-hunting-special-in-arizona/ you may be interested in

In the lower charts you have “Tooth” and “Tooh.” Is that the same as “TOA” above? Tooth of the arrow????
yes sorry typos
I am surprised that you did not mention Tooth of the arrow in your final review. Seems like it faired pretty well in many areas, and arguably out preformed Kudu…
I actually loved the Tooth of the Arrow heads. However the heads I mentioned weren’t necessarily the top scoring my final review was Objective and base more on my personal experience with each head .Plus I couldn’t mention every head I liked. However if I was to choose one more head to mention the 1″ TOA would have been my next choice.

If the limited the ban to those holding tags and outfitters who have clients with tags on water only during the season only for the problem units only it would eliminate all the problems. Cameras would need to be pulled by all tag holders (and their guides) by sunset the day before the season opens. No more problems at water.

Great stuff, John – thank you!
This was a great read and very informative, I have been looking a few new bows myself for the sole reason that an old injury coupled with my age and arthritis has made shooting my current bow at 75lbs impossible.I have always believed that the more I shoot my bow the more accurate and comfortable I become with it and there is no need change out every time a new model comes out. We all know the guy that believes a new bow will somehow make him a better hunter somehow and he buys a new one every year, that’s not me. So I only like to change when there is a significant technology upgades or in my case I just can’t use my old equipment anymore. So my question is, dose this bow have a smooth draw cycle and at 60lbs would you be comfortable taking animal up to elk size with a fixed broad head out to 60 yards? Thanks Brandon
Pingback: For more than 99% of human history, Homo sapiens existed as hunter-gatherers. However, modern society has become increasingly disconnected from our roots in the natural world. The public often sees humans as distinctly separate from nature. As a result, m
Very well stated, and something I’ve been saying on my YouTube channel all along. The activist crowd gets wound up over the possibility of any animal potentially being eradicated from the ecosystem because of the impact it would have on that environment. Well, what do they think would happen if we were to remove ourselves? We play an active part in the natural balance as well, and hunting is a big part of that. I’ve had conversations in which people tell me that people literally have no place in nature anymore. They fancy a world in which we keep to our manmade little boxes and concrete jungles. I have a channel dedicated to outdoors stories, mainly accounts of man vs nature and animal attacks. It never fails the majority of my comments are from people that state the human “invaded” the animal’s territory and got what they deserved 😳 I constantly make the argument that the victim did not “invade” anything. We share the landscape. It’s our territory as well, and always has been. If you go to the jungles of India, you find tigers. If you go to the shores of Alaska you find brown bears. The mountains of the west, cougars. But these animals have a range that they inhabit and don’t typically stray from it. Humans can be found in every single environment on every continent across the world. From the most arid desert to the coldest most barren tundra. And the people that live there have adapted to survive in those conditions perfectly. We’re the most adaptable species on the planet. We don’t have any one place that we belong, much less a confined box. This is by design, and it makes us possibly the most important being there is of any ecosystem. The general consensus seems to be that our way of thinking is antiquated and destructive to the natural world, but it seems to me the folks who subscribe to that ideology are in fact the only ones making themselves obsolete. I’m afraid one day, they’ll learn the hard way.
I ve been talking about the people viewing nature and humans as separate for a long time . id love to discuss this sometime with you
