Whitetail Deer Hunting News - EHD is Bad - CWD is Worse

 

If you follow the QDMA on social media or content shared on their website - you know that QDMA is putting a lot of emphasis on the seriousness of chronic wasting disease (CWD), wanting all whitetail deer hunters to understand the disease and the implications it could have on the future of whitetail deer hunting.

They are always trying to give hunters actionable items we can all do to help fight CWD. Inevitably, though, when we share CWD related content - people question why they aren’t seeing mass die-offs of deer from CWD like sometimes occurs with hemorrhagic disease (EHD), or they’ll go as far as saying EHD is a more serious disease - That simply is not true according to QDMA.

While EHD is serious, there is no greater threat to the future of white-tailed deer than CWD. Deer herds recover from EHD’s sudden strikes, but CWD is slow and takes years to erode a herd’s ability to sustain hunter harvest without declining.

Think Big Trophy Whitetails Are Elusive? .. THINK AGAIN!

 

I read this today .. and could not get away from the thought that deer hunters might really better understand what is being said in this message about - Contentment in Every Circumstance. In the dictionary the tem elusive means - to evade grasp or pursuit such as elusive prey .. hard to comprehend or define ... and hard to isolate or identify .. Many people think contentment is elusive, because happiness and peace never last. But is that really the reason? It’s common to associate a state of satisfaction with a positive situation  ..

.. but Paul challenges this idea when he says, “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am” (Phil. 4:11).

Contentment isn’t something that comes naturally; it is learned. And what kind of classroom do you think God uses?

 

Where, When and How to Find More Shed Antlers

 

One of the more enjoyable late-winter activities for me is getting out with friends and family hiking in search of shed antlers. I wish I was fortunate enough to scour every square inch of the properties I hunt in search of them, but time just doesn’t allow that, and sometimes those pesky rodents beat me to them. I’ve learned a few things over the years to focus my efforts or to increase my odds of finding sheds, especially when time doesn’t allow you to cover entire properties.

It may seem oversimplified and to many is common sense, but focus your efforts looking for sheds where deer spend the bulk of their time in the winter and early spring and on days your success will be the greatest. Winter food sources, winter bedding cover and in between the two is where you need to be. Also, I typically wait for the ideal weather conditions to search to increase my odds. Here are a few tricks I’ve picked up over the years on where and when shed hunting has worked for me.

Secrets to Turkey Hunting | Who or What Can Help?

 

BigDaddy says .. I have never Turkey Hunted .. I'm strictly a "whitetail" hunter .. and varmints too, of course .. but all you turkey hunters just remember that like whitetails .. there is an upside if you hunt turkeys from a blind .. especially if you have a small children or grandkids that we all know, can’t sit still for very long .. and if it's raining, windy, foggy .. ground blinds can be extremely effective and useful .. and also very good for hunting in open fields where there are few or no trees. With the eyesight that they say turkeys have .. it can be very hard for a bow hunter to draw back on a bird while out in the open.
