2014 Maryland Bow Season One Week Away

So in one week I’ll be back in a tree stand for the ultimate rush of whitetail deer hunting with a bow. There is nothing that comes close to the feeling of harvesting a mature buck with a bow. I can only hope to repeat what I pulled off a few years ago, harvesting a giant on opening day.

To relive the feeling I had the night I shot Curly would be impossible but I’d love to creat a new memory and accomplishment. Best of luck to all you Maryland hunters that will be hitting the woods next Friday. I can’t wait to hear how everyone does.

Dave Ziegler Scores A Beautiful South Carolina Buck

Congrats to one of my best friends and hunting buddies, Dave scored on a great buck last night. Dave and I have been coming down to Buck Run Hunting Lodge for 6 years now and it keeps getting better every year. The quality of deer and the good times to be had combined are second to none. With two more evening hunts I left I hope we can knock down a few more.

Day 2 Morning Hunt In South Carolina

Well I hate to say it but not much has changed this morning compared to yesterday. It seems like there was a bit more shooting at first light but that has quickly died off. My buddy Darvin did shoot a small buck this morning, and I’ve yet to see a deer myself. But like I’ve said I’m just happy to be here, and for now I’m just hanging out waiting on the deer. God speed!

Day 1 Evening Hunt In South Carolina

Back on stand for the first evening hunt and right back where I killed my giant last year. As you can figure my anticipation and hopes are way high. Deer or no deer I feel blessed that I have the opportunity to be sitting here. Good luck hunters!

Deer Season Opening Morning Here In Estill, South Carolina

Yes its here, another opening morning for deer season and I find myself again in stand here at Buck Run Hunting Lodge. I have grown to love this place just like home, and have made some great friends that make it feel as so.
I have settled into my stand for the morning, and am just waiting for God to brighten the beautiful day I know is ahead of me. Hunting is not just about killing things its a state of mind that brings you peace and tranquility, and the appreciation for the small things in life that are really important. Good luck to all my friends a field this morning, and be safe.

South Carolina Opener Coming Quickly

As I sit here on the beach celebrating my wife’s birthday on our family vacation I can’t help thinking about hunting on Friday. I will be leaving Hilton Head to make an hour and a half drive NW to Buck Run to start off my 2014-15 hunting season. I’ve been going now with a group of buddies for 6 years now and I can’t think of a better way to start the season. I can only hope to be half as lucky as I was last year as I harvested a super velvet buck in 2013.
