3. SO THE BACKSTRAPS ARE GONE–NOW WHAT?

Often underutilized and doomed to the grinder, if used at all, the shank of your buck may soon become your new favorite cut.  Host of TV show MeatEater on the Sportsman Channel, master of wild cuisine and in general cool dude, Steven Rinella, details his killer recipe for venison Osso Bucco.

4. CALLING IN THE WILD (COYOTE CALLING TIP)

“As we dive into January the coyote breeding season is upon us. Distress sounds begin to take back seat to coyote vocalizations. To increase your success, take time to learn the coyotes language. If you want to kill large numbers of coyotes this time of year, you must be proficient with vocalizations. You can use your e-caller or your favorite mouth-blown call. Here’s one tip on how vocalizations can help you have more success.

Many of us scout for big game – you should be doing the same for coyotes. The night before you plan to hunt, go out and do some interrogation howls in the areas you plan to call. Document where you find coyotes and what they are. For example, was it an adult male, a young female, a breeding pair? When you hit that stand in the morning, you’ll have a better idea of what sounds will trip that dogs trigger and get him or her to come in. You’ll make each stand knowing first, that coyotes are there, and second, who they are. This gives you a significant amount of confidence, patience to wait longer if necessary, and a very good idea what your sound sequence should consist of.”

      That’s a great question and probably has something to do with a compatibility issue. However, there’s a lot of great apps out there you could download such as one called Strelok. They have a couple of our reticles on there and you’re able to make drop charts, and then match them up to your reticle very easily. Very similar to the program we offer on the website. Give us a call if you have any questions. 800-426-0048 ext. 5
