Wanted more of this view but the few days I had of it was worth it!
Whether you enjoy the service and security of a fully guided hunt or are more of a Do-It-Yourselfer, @linkswildsafaris can accommodate both. Check out the latest issue of The Outfitter Wire for a list of rifle and archery hunts available. www.outfitterwire.com #outfitter #elkhunting #archery #diyhunter #guidedhunts
Had the opportunity to demo a Vortex Razor HD spotter during my elk hunt through @azfieldoptics to help me decide which brand of spotter to go with. I really liked the @vortexoptics and could find no fault with it at all but I just have piles of money laying around like I was Scrooge McDuck and went with the @swarovskioptik_hunting spotter instead. Sending the Vortex back to its rightful owner today (a little late, sorry man!!!) #tryitbeforeyoubuyit #publiclandhunter #diyhunter #solohunter #whatgetsyououtdoors #sickforit #getatme
I finally finished up my DIY European mount on my mule deer. I'm pretty excited about how it turned out! #diyhunter #muledeer #huntutah #averagebrooutdoors
Finally notched my second deer tag on the evening of opening day for late season. -------------------------------------------- #deerhunting #huntingwashingtonstate #huntwa #easternwashington #kuiu #kuiunation #vortexoptics #diyhunter #nightforceoptics #remington700 #meateater #meatinthefreezer
Friday I had an encounter with a Good buck while Bow hunting. He slipped away without knowing my presence. Saturday I Set up on this heavy active trail for the modern Gun Hunt here in NE Arkansas! I had regular visits from a pair of does! The Big Bucks obviously weren’t interested in them just yet! #weekendwarrior #arkansas #solohunter #diyhunter
My favorite thing about tree stand hunting is the ability to observe animals in their natural habitat up close while they are completely oblivious to your presence. Last night was no exception! I got to watch a spike chase a doe around for about 20 min while two small bucks (6 and a 4 pointer) sparred. In about 2.5 hours of sitting I saw over 20 deer and none knew I was on top of them. THE RUT IS ON and I am so grateful for experiences like this 🙏🙏🙏 - - - - #woodsman1 #goholtzs #wisconsin #burrisoptics #BurrisOracle #findwhatmatters #treestand #hunt #hunting #diyhunter #diyhunting #cabelas #itsinmynature #smartwool #basemap #bowhunting #archeryaddict #eastonarrows #diamondarchery #qad #deerseason2018 #deerhunting #whitetail
One year ago got lucky enough after almost running into this guy once, having a face to face with him on a ridge hanging a set, then having the most deer sightings in any two day sit of my life. 1 year ago today!
Little bit more my style.. Seen 4 does an a coyote (sneaky guy with no shot opportunity)
Had a good weekend hunting our #publiclands in northern Wisconsin. Saw deer almost every sit, but nothing within range. Now it's time to put the bow away for a couple weeks and prepare for the rifle opener next weekend. #wisconsinhunting #northernrootsoutdoors
Patience was the name of the game Saturday. The cold weather didn’t come in like anticipated, but nonetheless always great to get out. T-minus 4 days until I head north to hunt with @bfeatherly and @fattlunch. It’s gonna be a great time with a fair amount of shenanigans!! #firstlitehunting #huntmontana #elkseason #deerseason #rifleseason #spotnstalk #glassing #enjoytheview #hunting #huntingseason #hunt2eat #darkmountain #meateater #huntpublicland #montanabha #bha #publiclandowner #publiclandhunter #diyhunter #huntharder #pewpew #whitetail #muledeer
80 lbs batch of deer brats. Good thing we have 2 smokers, this was a lot of meat. #hunttoeat #meateater #diyhunter #DIYmeatprep
💥Wait for the SloMo Replay!!! The Wife drilled a Blackbuck with a perfect shot at 186 yards!!!! I’m honestly worried about the day when we sit down side by side, one on one, competition style! That girl can shoot!! 🦌💥🔫💄💋👱‍♀️ @agoody_27 @sheoutdoor @acornoutfittersllc @vortexoptics @remingtonarmscompany @silencerco
Remembering a great season. Topped my biggest pa and first Ohio buck. Last season Pa kicked my ass and so far 2018 is holding true again, unfortunately thus far.

Almost sealed the deal on my first sit
Well last day in stand had lots of action but no big bucks came thru. It was a huge learning experience for me I think I’ve learned the most on this trip!! Had a miss due to me not checking my gear but got things fixed🤙🏽it’s a real challenge for out of state hunters to get the job dun. Got no time to research where to set up what times they coming out an which animal are coming out that trail! From setting up tree stands to ground blinds also putting up trail cams it’s lots of work 🤙🏽Doing a diy buck is difficult but I will rise to all challenges an will grind it out 🤙🏽. Goals are set an I’m not lowering my standard. Next year this chess match will go on 🦌3me0 I applaud an congratulate all successful whitetail hunters #gettingitdun #diyhunter #payingmydues #lookingformonster #notmilkdrinkers 😂🤷‍♂️ #huntohio #hawaiianonthemove #happyhunter #bowhunting #whatgetsyououtdoors #motovateme
Been pretty happy with my new hunting rig. Gets good mileage with pedal assist. Was pretty cold this morning at 15 degrees Fahrenheit. The 3 inches of snow was a bonus. Passed on a small buck. Waiting for one to haul out in the trailer 😁. #diyhunter #quietkat #quietkatoffroad #archeryhunting #itreallywascoldthismorning #whitetails #getyourassoutside #getoutside #myatvisquiet
Got fogged in last weekend. Hopefully today is different!
I extremely underestimated the wind today
Well I got it done yesterday on public land and I'm pretty proud of myself! He's not a giant, but he's a trophy in my eyes and my first buck with a bow. A respectable Allegheny National Forest buck. I put in the time and worked really hard for this, and I did it all myself from start to finish. Lots of practice with the bow, boots to the ground scouting, finding the right locations to place tree stands, making my own cover scent, studying deer and wind patterns, hauling all my gear and filming equipment to and from the stands, early mornings and many hours sitting in a tree. It feels great to have all that hard work pay off and put some nice organic meat in the freezer. It really is amazing to see what you can accomplish when you have a passion and goal, set your mind to it and work your butt off for it! I'm very thankful to be able to spend as much time as I do in the woods, to be able to hunt these magnificent animals, and to know exactly where my food comes from. Today, I'm not only a proud hunter, but proud of myself for all that I have accomplished! . . . #publiclandbuck #proudhunter #foresttotable #alleghenynationalforest #backwoodspursuits
Today at 8 am marked 62 hours in the stand since last Saturday. This beautiful 9 point came strolling in through the snow to 10 yards and I smoked him! He is just one of the many memories I have made on this trip with my dad @toddvs21. This has been one of the best hunts of my life. I can’t wait to do it again! #family #publiclandhunter #diyhunter #hunting #bowhunting #deerhunting #meateater @nawtchamp @publicland_archery_allies
Cousin getting it done. Love when a plan comes together. “He was a grunting machine” weighed in at 210
Patience is hard to come by in times like this. The thought months of day dreams and preparations, begins to become clouded with "should have"and "I could of". You must keep your thoughts as crisp as the mornings, and your drive as true as the water that runs the creeks. No one ever said chasing dreams was easy... . . @sitkagear #diyhunter #sitkagear #huntlikeitsyourjob #sickforit #bowhunting #xopgear #filminghunts #ohiowhitetail #selffilming #beoriginial #shootbigdeer #whitegolddeerfeed #archery #bowhuntordie #chasingnovember #midwestwhitetail #bowlife #boonerorbust #blackeaglearrows #grimreaperbroadheads #elitearchery #hunting #onXHunt
So much of being a hunter is observing the wildlife we chase. Learning what they sound like, how they react to your calling, how to layout your decoy spread and how to be patient. I still have a lot of room for improvement. It's what drives me out of bed those early mornings. The kill is only a small portion of what hunting means to me. One thing anti-hunters will never understand is how much I respect and truely love these Duck's. #thisiswhy #ducks #itsanobsession #duckhunting #solohunter #publicland #publicwater #wetlands #conservation #diyhunter #widgeon #teal #liveoutdoors #hunting #desertducks #photography #itsalifestyle #pursuitofportraits
What's your favorite deer call? Mine is the all wooden Nitro Mag from Top Calls. I've been carrying this thing around in my hunting pack for years. I love the versatility of being able to make buck, doe or fawn calls from the same tube. Plus, it's locally made in the PA Wilds. . . . #gruntcall #deercall #topcalls #pawilds #backwoodspursuits
Was finally able to get my dad out to fill his deer tag but we had some poor weather that kept the deer down. Hopefully getting back at it this Friday. Still would rather be in a snowstorm on the mountain than in nice weather in the valley. #hunting #deer #deerhunting #diyhunter #publiclands #keepitpublic #utah #snowstorm2018 #ilovetohunt #elk #elkhunting #finaldays #meateater #wildgamemeat #honeyhole
Euro mount complete! This one turned out pretty good :) It’s amazing how every time you do something you get better at it. The more you experiment the more you learn and the better you become. Here is the simple 10 step process on how I do my euro mounts...if anyone has tips or suggestions on how to improve this process I am all ears :) 1. While fresh, flesh the skull 2. Boil water then turn down to simmer 3. Pour a cup or so of oxy clean and dish soap into water and stir in 4. Insert skull for 2 hours 5. remove skull and pressure wash 6. Pic out any remaining flesh inside 7. Insert skull for another hour and Pressure wash again 8. Paint on volume 40 whitener heavily and let dry 9. Spray with bleach, let dray and repeat 3 times 10. Wash off whitener with water and mount to plaque of your choice. *I like this one because it’s only $34 and can be used as a pedestal like it is now or hung from a wall :) - - - - #woodsman1 #goholtzs #euromount #taxidermy #diy #burrisoptics #findwhatmatters #backcountry #backcountryhunting #hunt #hunting #diyhunter #diyhunting #cabelas #itsinmynature #smartwool #basemap #gun #2a #riflehunting #colorado #muleyfreak #muledeer
I always find myself stopping and taking random pics when we are out on hunts, this being one... but it’s days like today I appreciate them. A month later on a Wednesday, I am able to look at this image and immediately go back to that time and place of peace and calm! Happy Hump Day Errbody!
Braised then grilled wild turkey wings, legs and thighs. I used to be a breast them out guy, not anymore. There is so much more to a bird if you are will to try some new techniques in the kitchen. #wildturkey #nwtf #wastenothing #northernrootsoutdoors
Five days left here in PA to get it done with the bow. Well I suppose there is always late season archery, but I'd rather do it now! . . . #archeryhunting #paarchery #thecountdownison #bowhunting #backwoodspursuits
Get out there and vote! I urge you to consider what is important to you and research which candidates best support your desires. You don't always have to vote the party line. #ivoted #ivotedpubliclandsandwaters #backcountryhuntersandanglers #northernrootsoutdoors
I love my LEM Big Bite #12 grinder 💕. I just put up the rest of my tiny buck from the last day of bow season.

Will be interesting to see how the ballots turn out today. Delaware narrowly voted down an AR style firearms ban last year and the local congress may shift today. North Carolina has a vote to amend their constitution for the right to hunt and fish. In some places voters may be choosing between pro firearms candidate and pro public lands candidates. #diyhunter #backcountryhuntersandanglers #sickforit #itsinmynature #publiclandsportsmen
Cubed venison button buck = wild #VEAL 😍. This cheap tenderizer and cuber is one of my favorite tools. This here #meatflower (I have never clicked on that hashtag, so do so at your own risk😂) is going to make #vealpiccata #vealparm #countryfriedsteak and more!
Some good weather for rigging decoys and drinking coffee. #DIYHunter #HuntingIsLife #duck hunting #seeinggreen #sickforit #WhatGetsYouOutdoors #ItsInMyNature
All of the meat from a tiny button buck (veal!)... 16 lb total. Doesn't seem like a lot, BUT IF you price this #beyondorganic #meat using the current 100% grassfed beef prices of $8/lb for ground, $28/lb for tenderloin, and $20/lb average for steaks, I just killed and butchered $296.00 worth of meat.

The finished product. Cooked at 225 until it was almost fall apart tender. I went with a cajun spin on this one. It is stuff with red beans, rice and my homemade andouille sausage. Turned out wonderful. #wastenothing #nosetoballscooking #neckroast #northernrootsoutdoors
Perfect evening to be out in the woods. Was in a hurry and forgot binos and a mid layer. 🙄 but at least I remembered something warm to drink. #DIYHunter #WhitetailHunting #DeerHunting #DeerSeason #Whitetails #Hunting #Bowhunting #archeryhunting #ArcherySeason #SickForIt #WhatGetsYouOutdoors #ItsInMyNature

Where the magic happens! My 1982 kitchen in my mountain hunting-cabin-that-is-also-my-home, which desperately needs an update, is where I clean my de-boned venison cuts for the freezer. This afternoon I'm excited to butcher my button buck's pink meat for "veal-like" dishes. 😍 . . #diyhunter #butcher #chef #deerseason #deermeat #huntress #womenwhohunt #sickforit #venison #whitetailobsession #crossbow #buckmeat #veal
Venison neck roast ready for the smoker. I normally dislike the idea of wrapping game, or anything for that matter, in bacon. I feel that typically bacon does little to enhance the flavor, but rather masks it. An exception is a large piece of meat such as this. Large cuts are able to stand up to the flavor of bacon much better. With something like venison that tends to dry out quickly, especially in a smoker, bacon adds that little bit of extra fat to help keep the meat moist. Excuse the bamboo skewers, I seemed to have misplaced my butchers twine. #wastenothing #nosetoballscooking #neckroast #northernrootsoutdoors
A piece of meat often left to the grind pile or worse the scrap heap, deer neck. This is one of my favorite pieces to work with, I deboned this one to try out a new recipe. Stay tuned to see what it will become. #wastenothing #nosetoballscooking #northernrootsoutdoors
