Deer Hunting Tip Of The Month

Don’t Make The Same Mistake Most Deer Hunters Make When Scouting.

One of the biggest mistakes that deer hunters make is not carrying a pencil and paper while scouting. We all think that our memories are really good, but that is simply not the case. Every hunter should carry a pencil and paper and make note of everything that you discover on your scouting trips. You should mark down trail locations, rub lines, scrapes, beds, and deer sightings. Then, when you return home you should transfer those notes to a map of your hunting property. You will be amazed at the patterns that develop over the years. You will see patterns in the bedding areas that you find. You will see patterns of rubbing and scraping activity, both when and where they are made. You will begin to discover the less noticeable buck trails that run along the major trails. You will reveal patterns of buck sightings, which will lead you to core areas. Deer hunting is very much like detective work. You gather all of the clues and try to solve the mystery of when your buck will arrive and where. There is not a detective out there that does not use a pen and paper, and so should you!

Summit Viper SS Climbing Treestand

The Summit Viper has become my treestand of choice because of its unmatched comfort on all day hunts. The Viper features Summit's snakeable cable attachment system, which is a snap to use and extremely safe. Its built of durable and lightweight aluminum, featuring all welded summitlokt construction. The large 18″x12″ seat and 12″x20″ backrest make this stand almost as comfortable as your favorite easy chair. The 20″x28″ platform gives you ample room to stretch when you need to. I currently own 4 Summit Vipers and spend approximately 300 hours per year hunting from them. I can honestly say that I have never had one slip on a tree or make any sound when you shift your weight. They are as safe and solid as any stand on the market. I would highly recommend Summit treestands to any deer hunter who spends alot of time in the trees. Get yours today!  Learn more here

Venison Recipe Of The Month

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Venison Backstrap

2 pounds venison backstrap (tenderloin), cut into 2 inch medalions
1 quart apple cider
1 1/2 pounds thick sliced bacon
2 (12 ounce) bottles barbecue sauce, your choice. Place chunks of venison into a shallow baking dish, and pour enough apple cider in to cover them. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove, and pat dry. Discard apple cider, and return venison to the dish. Pour barbecue sauce over the chunks, cover, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 more hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Remove meat from the refrigerator, and let stand for 30 minutes, or until no longer chilled. Wrap each medalion in a slice of bacon, and secure with toothpicks.

Brush the grill grate with olive oil when hot, and place venison pieces on the grill so they are not touching. Grill, turning occasionally, until the bacon becomes slightly burnt, 15 to 20 minutes. The slower, the better. Dig in, and prepare to want more!
