Part Three Of Hunting Trip

May 13, 2009

The next morning we got up early and crawled out of our sleeping bags and looked out the door of the family camping tent and snow covered everything the trees were beautiful covered with snow. It was a picture perfect morning for deer hunting. This was going to be the day to get our bucks if it was going to happen. So we got dressed for the cold and snow that covered the forest and grabbed a cup of hot coffee and headed down the hill with our deer rifles. The guys were going to head to the north side of the forest the direction the deer was headed the night before. I was going to head over to my favorite spot. My favorite spot was a acorn forest and I knew that after all the snow we got that the deer were going to be looking for food there.

It was still dark and was hard to find the acorn feeding ground but I found it about an hour before daylight. I put up my deer blind about 300 yards from the spot because I didn’t want to spook any deer off before it got daylight. I crawled in my deer blind and waited for light to arrive, It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Right at day break it seemed the forest started to come alive with critters. I could hear weird things in the woods if you have ever been there at that time I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. I got out my new buck grunt caller and got it ready. I also checked my rifle and made sure it was loaded and ready to go. Now all I had to do was wait for the big one and I knew it would just be a matter of time he was sure to show today with all the new snow.

No sooner than it got daylight I heard a shot in the direction the guys were hunting maybe they got one. I started to use my grunt caller to try to call a buck in but had no luck. About that time I saw a doe walking around some brush and she was headed right for the acorn feeding ground. Then I saw 4 more big does coming down a hill beside me and they was also headed for the feeding ground. That was sure a good sign that a buck would be around soon. During the rut which is the mating season for deer the bucks will follow the does around and check them to see if they are ready to mate. The buck always stays behind the does and shows last. I started to get hungry so i took a sandwich out of my picnic basket and ate while watching the does.

About an hour latter I heard crashing and loud noises coming from the forest on the back side of the feeding area. It was sure to be a buck I thought to myself. Then all a sudden I saw a big deer coming out of the thickets and was heading right for the other deer. As the deer got closer I could see horns it was a 8 point buck for sure. Then another deer came out behind that one and he looked like a monster I counted 12 points. It was going to be my lucky day. As soon as the two bucks got to the feeding area they started fighting. It was a awesome site that I never saw before in the wild. The smaller buck lost his battle with the monster buck and starting to leave the area. This was the time to take the monster I had been waiting on. I had a clear shot so I raised my rifle and put the crosshairs right on this chest and pulled the trigger. The monster fell to the ground right in this tracks.

Don’t Let the Weather Ruin Your Hunting Trip

April 8, 2009

Don’t you hate it when you have a hunting trip planned and the forecast calls for lousy weather? Have you ever postponed a camping trip because it was too cold or rainy? I don’t have that problem anymore.Last November I decided to go to deer camp with my brother and some friends. We made our plans a few weeks in advance so we’d have plenty of time to get our camping equipment ready. As opening day of deer season got closer, I kept an eye on the Weather Channel and things didn’t look very promising. The forecast was for a cold and snowy weekend but we were sure it wouldn’t stop us from bagging our deer.

You see, I had canceled too many camping trips in the past and recently purchased a four season family camping tent and some thermal sleeping bags to prevent it from happening again. The camping tent sleeps eight people so I knew there would be plenty of room for the four of us and our gear. I also knew we’d be protected because the four season camping tent is built to conquer all kinds of bad weather.

As Friday approached, I packed all my supplies with complete confidence that we’d be going camping as planned. What’s even better is that hunters without the right camping equipment would be staying home. Less hunters in the forest would mean more deer for us. Also, you know how it seems like the deer know exactly when hunting season starts? Well, maybe because of the bad weather they wouldn’t be quite so careful.

Friday finally arrived and we packed our camping gear in the car and headed for the woods. All of a sudden it dawned on me that we forgot the picnic backpacks with the sandwiches for our first day in it. We don’t cook on Friday because by the time we get to camp and set up our gear, it’s too late to bother cooking. After the first night though, we take out our barbecue tools and grill up dinner on our portable grill.

Finally we were on the highway. I couldn’t wait to get to hunting camp and set up our camping equipment before the bad weather set in. For me there’s nothing better than a weekend at hunting camp with my best pals and the anticipation of the hunt to come. Stay tuned and I’ll tell you how we did on our bad weather hunting trip.

Choosing a Camping Tent

February 9, 2009

With the difficult economic times we’re facing, many couples are turning back to camping as a low cost alternative to traditional hotel vacations. Once you get past the initial outlay for camping equipment the savings come from every direction. First, the cost of a campsite is almost always less than half the cost of a hotel room in a comparable location. Second, instead of spending big bucks on three restaurant meals per day, you can prepare meals at your campsite and every meal becomes a family picnic.Let’s face it, a picnic basket full of groceries will cost much less than dinner at even a moderately priced restaurant. Ok, your sold on the idea? Let’s talk about choosing the right camping tent for your needs.

One of the main things you’re going to need to consider what time of year you plan on camping. When I was a kid, a tent was a tent and if it rained, you got wet and if it was cold out, you froze. Fortunately times have changed and tents are much better equipped to handle the elements than they were 40 years ago. Today’s camping tents are generally classified by the number of seasons they’re intended to be used in.

A “three season” tent is designed for spring, summer and fall in most regions. If you don’t plan on doing any winter camping, this is the choice for you. Three season tents come in a variety of sizes, shapes and prices. Models are available to sleep as few as two people and as many as 10. When shopping for a three season tent, make sure you choose one with windows that are protected by an awning known as a rainfly. This will allow you to keep the windows open during light and moderate rain without getting wet while you wait out the storm. In other words, choose a tent that will let the air in and keep the moisture out. One thing you can count on, you will catch a rainy day on a camping trip sometime.

If you’re planning on camping in any kind of harsh winter conditions, you’ll need to choose a “four season” camping tent. They often have better floors that are not only waterproof but are better insulated against the cold. They are also made of heavier grade materials and are better equipped to handle the difficult elements that winter can bring. I actually question the use of “four season” for these tents. They are so well insulated that camping in warm summer conditions can be quite uncomfortable in a four season tent. Four season tents are also considerably more expensive than three season tents so unless you’re planning on camping in harsh winter conditions, a three season tent is probably best for you.

Once you’ve decided on the type of tent is best for you, I’d suggest you visit Camping Gear Stop. We offer an excellent selection of three and four season camping tents in a variety of sizes and price ranges.
