Our turkey season in Alabama is winding up; however, our birds took note early in the season and have long been hard to hunt. As I look forward to the next two weekends, I anticipate they will be two of my hardest weekends of turkey hunting because of the lack of interaction from these Alabama […]

Averaging about 65,000 miles a year, our truck — affectionately known as Clyde — has been in places and situations that might be termed “unimaginable.” We didn’t buy our truck to be “styling and profiling” rolling down the road; we bought Clyde to be a work horse, a means of getting us in and out […]

I will be announcing this hunt on the Getting Outdoors with Big Daddy Lawler radio show this weekend, so the three spots will fill quickly. This is your last chance to reserve a spot.

The Guru Huntress, aka Nancy Jo Adams, knew there had to be a chair with a back that would be comfortable, roomy and easy to set up. Nancy Jo found the NWTF Approved ALPS Turkey Chair MC at the National Wild Turkey Federation National Convention, which came as no surprise since that event, after all, was where all the newest turkey gear is unveiled each year. Read her review here. We think you’ll want one of your own!

Unlike most women, the Guru Huntress is not into scents but instead into “scent control.” Her nose for news includes finding the very best scent-control products out there and for laundry, she uses Tink’s Vanish. Read why here.
We come to rely on our Guru Huntress’s tips and this week, she reviews the Firefly Electronic Wind Detector, something we think is going to be on every hunter’s “please, Santa, can I have this early?” list.
We can always count on the Guru Huntress to be ahead of the game, and even now she’s thinking ahead to archery season. She found the perfect “green” target for slinging her arrows downrange. We think you’ll be interested in reading about it at The WON.

“Where is the Guru Huntress?” The Women’s Outdoor News is sponsoring a contest and a lucky winner will walk away with a neat prize package. Just look for the Guru Huntress traveling to a hunt or at your local deer show and snap a picture of my truck on the road, in the parking lot […]
You can bet that when the Guru Huntress goes afield or to the range, she’s got ESP on and it has nothing to do with that perception stuff … she’s wearing Electronic Shooters Protection hearing in-ear models, and maybe you should be wearing some, too?
I had the opportunity of attending the Optimum Shooting Performance (OSP) School with eight other writers this past week. The OSP Shooting School is something that I have wanted to attend since May 2007 – two months after buying my over and under shotgun. I have spent numerous hours on the OSP website reading the […]
One of the biggest issues that women have with diaphragm turkey calls is finding one that actually fits properly. Typically the structure of the roof palate (palatum durum) in females is narrower and higher than that of males. The roof palate is bound by the alveolar arches and gums. The alveolar arches, the hard portions […]
