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 […]
I ran across an advertisement while surfing the Internet the other day that read “Lucky Buck Club” and I had to know what it was all about. I clicked the link and was taken to the Wildlife Collection by Ed Beets, coined Sportsman Luck Charms. I was so intrigued by the designs and the variety […]

Many women hunters have struggled with the notorious “Hair & Body Wash” curse; trying to be scent-free with products specifically designed for human scent elimination. The curse is dried out, fly-away hair and often an itchy scalp for days after using these all-in-one products. There are several shampoo and conditioner products on the market and […]

This event was not only […]

The time is upon us. A time of intense anticipation, strained patience, long hours of travel, many days of adventure, undying gratification, pure joy and happiness – in other words, deer hunting season.

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 […]

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.

She’s going a’huntin’ again … in Kansas and we want you to hunt for her outside of her state of Alabama. So, if you see the Guru Huntress’s truck, with our decal in the back window, snap a quick pic, send it to us, tell us where you saw it (and maybe even her), and if you’re the first, you’ll win a Kelly Kettle.
