June – The Calm Before the Storm (By: Don Higgins)

June is probably the month that I do the least in regards to things related to deer hunting. That doesn’t mean I do nothing however. My mind is always thinking about how I am going to tag the next big buck and it seems that I always find more to do that might help take […]

Shipley’s Science…. March 2019 Blog

I just returned from Tulsa, Oklahoma where I attended the North American Deer Farmers annual convention.  There were several nice presentations about CWD and EHD/BT from scientists and government agencies.  A couple of other speakers couldn’t make it due to the horrible weather in the high plains.  I feel sorry for the people, livestock and […]

Shipely’s Science – Blog #2 – “Zombie Deer”

The last few weeks I have been bombarded by questions about “Zombie” deer.  Print, TV and radio seemed to pick this up as something new and disturbing.  The local TV station picked their feed up from somewhere and it was so inaccurate that I almost flew out of my chair screaming to my wife!  Here […]

What Really Matters with Wes Delks – January 2019

God Given Opportunities It’s another cold, snowy day. The end of deer season is just a few days away and the bite of the north wind on my face is almost as strong as the bite of an unfilled buck tag in my pocket. I mentally start making a list of the reasons I wasn’t […]

Think About A Gut Check

I did not hunt as a young child.  It was not until I was out of high school I tried to learn the sport.  I remember I bought my first bow, a High Country Supreme the summer of 1996.  Shooting 25-12 Easton Arrows, I wasn’t a bad shot for a beginner.   That set up would […]
