Hard Target ♾ ♾ Our target buck “Boris” early season and in full velvet. Eric and I ran cameras earlier than we ever have. To be honest, we prepared more than we ever have because not harvesting “Buford” last year hurt so bad. The hurt from last season, is overwrought by our success this year. Work hard, have a plan and strategize throughout the season to capitalize. #monsterbuck #antlerdrunk #thepassionneverdies #bowhunting #landoflincoln #archery #scouting #trailcam #primoshunting #truthcam #whitetailstrategies #goaloriented #hardtarget #earnyourtrophy #bowhunterslife #uahunt

They are precious too me ♾ ♾ I’m packed for a week long conference in Dallas, Texas - it’ll be a good time but I’m always forward thinking...returning with just Sunday to finish Bow Season here in IL. After that...the search for shed antlers ensues. The hardened clues are a tell tale sign of who survived...winter, predation by both beast and human alike. Three years in a row putting Pope & Young Whitetails on the ground, looking forward to a little break...but I’m sure it’s short lived. I’m a Whitetail Guy..it’s in my DNA 🧬 #shedhunting #antlertherapy #whitetail #bonecollector #clues #illinois #whomadeit #deer #thisiswhy #figureitout #hitlist #monsterbuck #bowhunting #thepassionneverdies #whatgetsyououtdoors #antlerdrunk

FINALLY, date night with the hubs. ❤ . . . #thepassionneverdies

What’s your weekend looking like??? After talking with my neighbor last night...our target buck “Bishop” headed east - he’s a drifter...has a huge core range and got picked up on cameras 7 miles east of us by another hunter. Lay low big boy...and come back to us! #ilovebowhunting #ridgereaperlife #uahunt #livewildlivefree #ieatdeer #nockon #refusetofollow #gowhereyoudontbelong #built2hunt #antlerdrunk #thepassionneverdies #bowhunterslife

They called her “Long Rifle” ✖️ ✖️ She’s one of the first IG feeds I decided to follow. Since then, I feel privileged to follow her adventures. Her hunting and foraging game is hella strong!!! @fishinghuntress Huntress - the title is well deserved. #repostapp #thepassionneverdies #hunting #fishing #foraging #freerange #hormonefree #venison #womanhunter #deadeye #whatgetsyououtdoors

Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not the fish they’re after... ✖️ ✖️ Henry David Thoreau ✖️ ✖️ I’ve got fishing on the brain 🧠... blessed to have good fishing so close to home...power plant lakes are money in the winter months...I have a boat in the garage...probably should get to work on this thing...stop making excuses...less excuses and more fishing. #tinman #boatproject #fishing #wired2fish #enigmafishing #uafish #thepassionneverdies #landoflincoln #whatgetsyououtdoors #bassfishing #fishingisacontactsport #wootungsten

Monday has me looking back... ✖️ ✖️ I’m in shear mental exhaustion...Eric and I have targeted and hunted “Bishop” non stop since October 20th. We haven’t drawn our bows back since Oct. 16th - this is the part where people don’t want to admit...they’ve given up. This is where Eric and I are so alike...we stubborn like mules...this is why there’s Pope & Young Bucks on our walls. Don’t know how to quit, don’t know when to quit. I told Eric...it almost feels like Bowhunting is a job...everyday we’re off...meet up...boots on the ground...working together...problem solving...over and over again. We don’t get paid to hunt, we aren’t sponsored...it ain’t bout that, ain’t never ever been bout that. No matter where the Whitetail Roller Coaster Series takes us - we do it because we love it. We do it to preserve the memories and this lifestyle. #earnyourtrophy #thepassionneverdies #gatordontplay #landoflincoln #built2hunt #nockon #bowhunterslife #nevergiveup #ieatdeer #uahunt #ridgereaperlife #bowhunting #learntofilm #outdoorvideography #whitetailstrategies #viewfromyoursummit #livewildlivefree #keephammering @uahunt @built2hunt_co @double_e_83 @behindthestring @jaredknerr @shayne.edwards @bowtecharchery @huntingproductguru @whitetail_fit @bowhunting_fiend

Eyes on the prize...among hunters there’s a lot of debate on what we are our expectations are as hunters. Meat Hunters: simply put - it’s brown and it’s down. They provide for their family or they simply want to know where their protein came from. Fair enough - I’m good with that. Trophy Hunters: Probably the most vilified group among hunters these days. Stereotyped as those who cut the head off the animal, sitting on the animal while smoking a cigar getting their picture took. Most uneducated folks would accept this definition-there’s actually quite a few bowhunters that I know that accept this definition. My definition: I am a trophy hunter. I have honed my Bowhunting skills by shooting hundreds, if not thousands of arrows at home, on the road and during competition. Bowhunting effectively and being lethal requires a depth understanding of Archery. I pick a mature animal, single him out and begin the arduous process of deciphering his world. He is nature’s apex survivalist - the odds are clearly against me. I have years of failure on multiple deer to prove that. I’ve eaten plenty of tags, seasons without even drawing my bow back because of my expectations. I’m borderline obsessed when it comes to the process of locating, scouting, and killing a big whitetail. My inner circle of friends - think the same way. I pass on multiple chances to harvest a deer - to let them live, because I’m searching for the one.The meat harvested from a my trophy buck is cherished...nothing is wasted, but I’m being transparent - my family doesn’t require venison to survive. So if ask me, I will tell you I am trophy hunter. If you have read this far, then you will know that I earned those bucks on my wall and the meat in my belly. ✖️ ✖️ #built2hunt #thepassionneverdies #landoflincoln #transparent #behindthestring #idoitforme #whatgetsyououtdoors #earnyourtrophy #viewfromyoursummit

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat it’s not your fault... ✖️ ✖️ Eric and I are at the midway point in our season. In seasons past the rigors of our bow season in Illinois is enough to make you throw caution to the wind (pardon the pun) and get lazy with scent control. I did just that on tonight’s hunt. I’ve been wearing @uahunt Extreme Wool Series and of you don’t dry these garments properly between hunts...you get this weird smelly cat pee smell....I kept getting whiffs of it in the tree. I tell you what...I’m thanking that stuff wind that almost blew me and @double_e_83 out of the tree. I wash my clothing in a clear soap, no color brightening, no fragrance. Dry according to the instructions and then everything - Base layers, @hecsstealthscreen suit, UA Extreme Wool Jacket and Pants, gloves, neck gaiter and even the @built2hunt_co lid go in the Scentmaster Tote for 30 mins. It has a charcoal mat in the bottom and it compresses air through the garments into the charcoal. The final step is an ozone bath and thus far...I can’t remember he last time I got winded. Tomorrow is going to be an all day sit...without smelly cat. #smellycat #uahunt #nockon #hecs #whatgetsyououtdoors #thepassionneverdies #bowhunterslife #landoflincoln #bowhunting #whitetailrollercoaster #built2hunt

FULL HEARTED and THANKFUL- YouTube link in my bio. Special thank you to @built2hunt_co and @relentlesshntr_208 - Built2Hunt guys are doing something I believe in and what they’re doing speaks to a big piece of who I am. #livewildlivefree #ycctm #outdoorvideography #bowhunting #whitetaildeer #whatgetsyououtdoors #uahunt #landoflincoln #thepassionneverdies

Doing my best @natesmithdrums impersonation. Definitely can tell that by not practicing and shedding as much, my hands have slowed down. But speeding up the video, you can’t tell at all huh lol. #thepassionneverdies #idrum #allabouthowthegroovefeels

Shoot maybe, no shoot - no maybe. By @tboneoutdoors @mcdowell_kyle and I on a #tbt public land hunt back in the day. We didn’t have nowhere to call our own...so we do like any man who thirsts for adventure and venison would. We go public...this hunt coined the term “forever walk” - Mac told me...I have a spot but you’re not going to like how we get there. Now I’ve been down this road before and when Mac says he has a “spot” - he has a method behind the madness. Good lord, what a trek...CRP over your head...we literally got on a deer run and started zigzagging through a maze of weeds. We somehow ended up on a hogs back ridge and the signs...they were many. That night Kyle unleashed his Hoyt Defiant on an Arrow worthy buck. It was an honor friend, a hunt of a lifetime. Memories not soon to fade. Thank you. @thehuntingpublic #landoflincoln #bowhunting #manlypursuits #venisongains #whitetail #thepassionneverdies #bowhunterslife #tbt #huntingmemories #whatgetsyououtdoors #freerange #hormonefree #eatwhatyoureap #nockon #keephammering #publiclandowner #keepitpublic #whitetailstrategies

Let me take a closer look ✖️ ✖️ As my good friend @behindthestring would say...A Buck worthy of an arrow. Let’s find something worthy this weekend. @uahunt @bushnell_official @muddyoutdoorsofficial @built2hunt_co @alpsoutdoorz ✖️ ✖️ #livewildlivefree #bowhunting #midwestwhitetail #coldfrontbucks #antlerdrunk #cornfed #thepassionneverdies #landoflincoln #halfway #taggedout

Stuck in hock ✖️ ✖️ The western states are full steam ahead with many of my friends embroiled in their own hunting adventures. This flat lander is still in hock till October 1. It’s ok...the countdown is on the downhill slide. #landoflincoln #bowhunting #whitetails #refusetofollow #learnarchery #onearrowpractice #built2hunt #nockon

Prepare Yourself ✖️ ✖️ It’s all you can do, seize the moment. @double_e_83 and I made it up to the farm. Double set is hung, @primos_hunting proof cams were checked and fresh cards in them. Mock scrapes down. What we found in the cards...it’s something to behold. Again our small farm continues to produce quality bucks. As @behindthestring would say - “worthy of an arrow” - Boris, I’m coming for you. ✖️ ✖️ #built2hunt #prepwork #primos #trailcamera #bowhunting #whitetails #eatwhatyoureap #antlertherapy #landoflincoln #nockon #thepassionneverdies #venisongains #whitetailrollercoaster #season2 #outdoorpassion

Different strokes for Different folks ✖️ ✖️ Some people do cars and coffee, I like Bowhunting - Bowhunting and coffee. 37 days till the moment where I decide : Did I train enough, am I tough enough, will my equipment hold up, AM I #built2hunt ✖️ ✖️ #bowhunting #landoflincoln #lastofthewildplaces #eatwhatyoureap #nevergiveup #whatgetsyououtdoors #thepassionneverdies

As my trip🇦🇺 comes closer to an end, I would like to thank God for all the provision that he has given me to make this trip a success! On top of enjoying, I’ve learnt so much on how I can improve on my individual training and specific skill set and I can’t wait to implement it when I’m back home. I’m coming home fresher than ever 👊🏻 and I can’t wait to start back where I left of! #thepassionneverdies #noholidayfromfitness #lifestyle #fitnessforlife #talentsnotenough

#fbf - the woods are bursting with green - I just can’t keep my mind out the whitetail woods of fall. I was tagged out on bucks before October ended, it did not deter me from hunting more sits than I ever have. I still had a turkey tag and doe tags to fill, to be honest I wasn’t hunting to fill tags by that point. I just wanted to be out there. I had my opportunity but I was searching for that perfect moment. I found many perfect moments, many of which had nothing to do with drawing my bow. ✖️ #built2hunt #whatgetsyououtdoors #ilovebowhunting #hunt4gains #thepassionneverdies #bridgethegap #uahunt #bowonly #earnyourtrophy #picart

#fulldrawfriday continues - run and gun if you have to. After @double_e_83 and I snuck down between two ridges - that weather changed and we had to get down a relocate the herd. Is there anything better than trekking through a snowy wooded piece of public ground? Anybody can do it, everyone has access to it, how bad do you want it? #wanderlust #exploreandhunt #uahunt #nockon #walkabout #ilovebowhunting #landoflincoln #searchingforbuford #relivethehunt #thepassionneverdies #whitetailrollercoaster

Feels dang good to be home. Grass is cut, hit the gym (no lack of iron deficiency in there) I wanted to put that grotesque amount of carbs to good use. Pulled this shirt out of my drawer...just had to sit back and think about what it means. What it’s going to mean when @double_e_83 and I are in some basin trying to make a hunt of a lifetime come true. Never give up, never give in, never settle. Truly, #thepassionneverdies #hpgoriginal #utah2019 #earnyourtrophy #herdbull #limitedraw #keephammering #makeyourdreamscometrue #bowonly @huntingproductguru - thank you brother...above all - thank you for being my friend.

#tbt - take a kid fishing. It’s pretty simple. Like my father before me, I have strived to immerse my children into the outdoors. I never pressured them, I just always offered.

Sometimes your circle decreases in size, but increases in value... #teamup#friendsforlife#smallcirclegang#nohashtags#wallarts#streetwalks#streetboys#thepassionneverdies#ish2

I’m still in #whitetailwednesday mode. Last night I shared a clip of me freaking out post shot on a mature whitetail buck this past bow season. I decided to move him to the other wall with the other deer I harvested off Government ground. The story behind each one is quite different. The one on the left, not much up top - but a horse of a body. Harvested during the peak of the rut - almost 3 miles from anywhere. My first buck on Government ground, my first buck killed solo...my first pack out in a round about kind of way. His cape, rough - scars on his face and ears. I’m most proud of this one. The one on the right, an amazing hunt...it happened so fast - turned into an ordeal - he’s only here because I had help from a great friend who helped me recover him and my taxidermist who did a masterful job of bringing him back to his former glory. #elevateyourhuntinggame #cherishyourtrophy #ilovebowhunting #publiclandowner #landoflincoln #whitetaildeer #publiclandarcheryallies #thepassionneverdies #october2018 #whitetailrollercoaster #season2 #loghometaxidermy #dorseyil #diyhunter #legionost

I wish I had video of the deer 🦌 walking through this pinch point right to me... I can assure you the footage would have been shakey LOL! I get chills every time I think about this hunt... I play back the shot...jumping the deer and collapsing in 8 ft tall CRP - disgusted and ashamed - then 4 agonizing days later the closure - finding him by the lake. Finally the elation of bringing home and hanging him in the hall of bucks with his brothers on the last day of the IL Bow Season for 2017. #ilovebowhunting #diyhunter #legionost #publiclandowner #doitthehardway #nockon #whitetaildeer #whitetailcountry #nevergiveup #bowonly #earnyourtrophy #sweetoctober #thepassionneverdies #publiclandarcheryallies
