Saturday is the opening day of the 9 season gun hunt here in my home state of Wisconsin. Tomorrow is Orange Friday.

With gun seasons underway or starting soon in most states, you still have a great opportunity to tag some of the biggest bucks in the woods, so don’t give up yet! Continue Reading
Frozen Pond 9 Pointer- User Submission
Sam Wiersma shot this 9-pointer after scouting and hunting the buck all year. The big Wisconsin 9 pointer scored over 153 inches.

While there was good blood at the hit location, he wanted to make sure that he didn’t bump the deer. Continue Reading
