  • Get out there for the last bit of coyote breeding action. I caught two male coyotes chasing a female coyote as breeding season comes to an end. Eventually a shot presented itself in a safe direction. Check out some unseen coyote behavior in this video.

    The end of breeding season is near but hunters can still get in on some coyote action using female howls. Males obviously respond to the last female howls before the females den up in secluded areas to raise their puppies. Once denning begins, female coyotes will stop broadcasting their locations…

    Calling coyotes is telling a story to convince a coyote to come investigate. Watch the video to hear the love story the Mailman tells to bring in this female coyote during the coyote's breeding season. Estrus, whines, challenges and actual breeding calls work wonders right now, bringing in…

    Jan-Mar is the best time for me taking big hogs around 300 pounds. The acorns are all gone and the deer hunters are no longer baiting. Big hogs need to eat so they go back to the large natural food sources. Hit those fields right now for those big monster hogs.

    Took this one of a kind Raccoon on Tuesday night 10/27/2020. Thought it was awesome, dropped it off at the taxidermist can’t wait to get it back. Couldn’t have done it without my dog coach😁

    A facebook memory from 2018 reminded me of a bedding area that bucks cruised through looking for does. On the first day of my vacation I set up in the area and had this nice 8 chasing a doe around my blind. Bucks are chasing does here in the upstate and it is a great time to be in the woods.

    This year's coyote pups have hit the fields and coyote numbers are the highest they will be for the year. Pup sounds are producing right now so get out there and get on some coyotes.

    Hogs are going through the new growth to get to the cut wheat laying on the ground. This pattern is still paying off for the Mailman.

    There are certain food sources that produce huge hog numbers at certain times during the year and right now is one of them. If you have property with wheat on it.....now is the time to set up on this food source and stay put. I took 8 off a small wheat field last night and I will be hunting this…

    So I purchased a ripper 415 and straight out of the box it was dead on at 20 yards with the field tip and factory bolts. I shot it probably 15 times. Waited a week a shot it again 3 times and it was still dead on at 20 yards. Put on a broadhead using supplied practice blade and it was 6 inches low…

    Landowners are cutting fields for the first time this year and it's a great time to get out there after some hogs.

    Meet Homer. Opening day 5.5 year old 10 pointer. Named after my late brothers grandpa whose land I hunt on in Orange County. He was a wonderful deer 2yrs ago, but I knew he was young and let him walk. Then this year he blew up. He came in with 4 other bucks at 6:30 but he knew something…

    March brings in the spring as we approach turkey season. This also brings in a time of year that I consistently take large hogs in the 300 pound range. Most of times I see mating behavior as the spring comes in and I have been able to capitalize on this time of year. Trail cameras are key to…

    As breeding season winds down for coyotes, coyotes go back to feeding heavily. Prey sounds become great again as vocals wind down. Females are less vocal as they seek out den areas and don't want to advertise their areas. Spring means lots of young prey so change up those tactics.

    This hunt took place in Stony Point, NC at Stony Point Nursery and Old Mountain Berry Patch. We were asked to hunt this property from the farmer after there were complaints about the rabbits chewing on his nursery plants and blackberry bushes. We hunted on his property three different times,…

    If you take one coyote out of a double, return a few days later for an easy second harvest as the remaining coyote will stay in the area looking for it's lost partner. This coyote came in within seconds just three days after the harvest of it's partner. Grab those secondary harvests to…

    Go back after those coyotes you had encounters with and pull another harvest.

    Stay on hogs all year long with this bait stacking technique.
