Dressing for the hunt with Neil Pendleton: why wool makes for the best hunting gear
One of Hal's favorite motto's is, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!". Well, many of us may think Hal was born wearing his wool plaid jacket and green wool pants, and honestly, I can't picture him hunting in any type...
"Tracking a Maine Buck with Rick Labbe": the Making of the Film and the Story of Rick's Buck
Typically I might put a spoiler alert in an article that goes with a video, but I don’t think I’d be spoiling anything for anyone when I tell you: Rick got his buck. Unfortunately, we didn’t capture on film the moment that Rick ended his two-year pursuit of this buck on film. Bu...
A Miss in Maine, Redemption in Vermont: Glenn Bombardier's 2010 VT buck
The sun was starting to set both literally and figuratively on the 2010 Maine season. It was the last Friday afternoon and after four snowless days, I was excited to finally find a nice buck track to follow. He wasn’t the biggest buck I’d ever tracked but his toes were uneven and his ...
"Still Tracking": Tracking Outside the Box
Around September, I looked at my deer schedule for the upcoming season. I had to guide three weeks, meaning that gave me two weeks to find a buck. Yes, I'm a Big Woods buck hunter, but I also have a family to feed and venison is important to us. So, when my wife told me the freezer was full with moo...
The New Custom BWB/Skinner Tracking Rifle – The Browning BLR!
A year ago, I went through my gun rack and was looking for a potential rifle that I could convert into a bonafide tracking rifle. I also wanted to create it as a platform for a prototype to present to the respective gun company (to possibly produce a run for Big Woods Bucks and Skinner Sights), but ...
Packing Up: the History of the Big Woods Bucks fanny pack, and new features for the 2022 fanny packs (coming soon!)
When I grew up hunting in southern Maine, the only hunters I knew who carried packs were the ones who sat on stand all day. Those guys usually carried a knapsack with extra clothes, a lunch and a thermos of coffee for their day in the woods. The hunters that roamed around including me, threw a sandw...
Stephen Schanz's 2021 Maine Buck: "Talking" to Bucks
After months of guiding it was good to finally be the one carrying the gun and God blessed me with success in what little time was available.I had a spot in mind from that fall’s moose season that I had found some good deer sign in and even jumped a few deer while moose scouting. I cut the buc...
Lee Schanz's 2020 Buck: Rattled in in the big woods!
I don't remember when we had a warmer second week for deer season. When I was guiding my client from Michigan last week, we had three days of snow, and this week we've had 2 or 3 days between 60*-75*! My client this week is an Adirondack deer hunter from New York. I guided him for half price this we...
Tracking Elk on Snow: Rick Labbe's 2020 Wyoming Bull
Tracking an elk isn’t so different from tracking a buck, Rick Labbe says—a bull will take you on the same rollercoaster ride through thick, steep, and downright rough terrain that a whitetail buck will. But, like a whitetail track, if you stay on it and persevere, there will be a big bul...
