When I look back on, "my best years," they're the years where I accomplished the most, the years I learned, the years I grew, and the years I felt things that set my heart and soul on fire. At 21 years young, the only things I had really harvested were whitetail, turkeys, and a pronghorn, which is more than some people can say, but the year I turned twenty-two, would prove to be my golden year as a hunter. April Tom - A Single Pellet. My turkey season had not been successful.
Some brands want you to think establishing a good deer food plot is as easy as throwing out a bag full of food plot seed mix and watching the deer come running. Well, if that’s your method, I wish you good luck. Establishing a good food plot takes time and planning. Choose the right location Depending on your property, you might have limited options on where to plant a food plot, but you still need to select the right location. Selecting a spot near bedding areas will give yo
I put together a bow hunting gear checklist for women hunters! These are all items that I use and recommend you purchase for a whitetail bow hunt. Below the gear checklist I listed the certain brands of archery gear I use so you know what products are working for me and that I recommend to a woman hunter.

One of the questions that I am often asked by women who are interested in bow hunting for the first time is, “How do you keep your cool when making the shot?” They often say “I just don’t think I would be able to shoot a deer with a bow”, or “It just seems so hard, I don’t think I would be able to pull it off”. While I love encouraging other women to get involved in hunting, I will be honest when I say that yes, bow hunting is very hard. If it was easy everyone would be doing
One of my favorite things to do leading up to, throughout, and after deer season is to take inventory on our trail cams. We have 200 acres that we hunt on and have about 8 trail cams that we check often. Believe me, I wish we had more as we always seem to find somewhere to hang another! By hanging cameras throughout our property we are able to get a better idea on the amount of deer we have, where they are hanging out and the times they are moving. One of the most exciting th
Most hunters are aware of trail cameras, and how beneficial they can be when it comes to patterning the specific animal you are hunting. Trail cameras can also be used for surveillance and security of a home or business. However, one of my favorite pass times involves using a trail camera to capture unique images in the wild. This is especially a great hobby that helps to carry me from one hunting season to the next. I spoke with Pat Howard, chief camera operator of DLC Cover
One of my favorite things about bow hunting is that my deer season lasts longer. Our rifle season only lasts about 10 days here in Missouri, but bow season is from mid September to January. The deer activity and patterns change from early fall to late season and knowing what their main objectives are throughout the season is key to harvesting an animal. During summer and early fall the bucks are in their bachelor groups and their main interest is food. Having food plots with
Using scents while hunting can be a great way to bring a nice buck in range when used correctly. This year I tried The Buck Bomb Doe In Estrous & had some good luck with it.
While walking to my stand I sprayed the can intermittently onto the ground to use as cover scent and as a scent trail. I wasn't in my stand 10 minutes when a nice young 8 point came out and followed my trail to my stand. I love that the can sprays upside down too, making it easy to create scent trail
When the temperature starts to drop during mid to late hunting season, keeping my feet warm is critical in order for me to sit in my tree stand for long periods of time. I have tried many different boots, wearing multiple socks and Toasty Toes in my boots, but none of them have worked for me when it starts to get in the 20's and 30's. If this is also the case for you, then I highly recommend trying the ThermaCELL Heated Insoles!
The temperature this morning was 27 degrees w
Welcome to Huntress View! I created this blog and Facebook page so women have somewhere to go to gain insight on hunting and shooting from a woman's point of view. This is a place for the experienced huntress or for the woman who is thinking about going hunting for the first time. I feel that more women will get involved in hunting if they are able to get advice from real women hunters and know what hunting products huntresses are using, and loving! By giving honest feedback
