Bears of Wekusko

By Jason Mitchell/ Passion for the Hunt Television

For many bow hunters in the Midwest and eastern half of the United States, much of our past experience archery hunting involves whitetail deer.  Other species or opportunities often require a road trip.  Canadian spring bear hunting is attractive to many archery hunters because this type of hunt is often affordable and easy to accomplish.  For hunters who have never been close to a bear, these hunts can also seem quite exotic.  Black bears are reclusive, but their strength and agility inspire awe.  Many a bow hunter has completely lost their nerves when a large boar walks to the bottom of the ladder stand.  Bears can give even the most experienced archery hunters the shakes.  No shame.  Battling composure during a massive infusion of adrenaline is why we bow hunt and exactly why so many hunters love to hunt bears in particular.

Seasoned Perspectives on Turkeys

By Passion for the Hunt

Hunters love turkey hunting in large part because of the interaction between hunter and bird.  A never-ending challenge where birds respond to calling and decoys with a range of emotions that span from aggressiveness to nonchalant.  Getting a turkey to posture and respond in your face is all about getting a bird fired up and there are few hunters who have fired up as many turkeys as Bruce “Wickerbill” Crist.

Warrior Buck, A Look Back at 2017

By Tayler Michels

Some of the most exhilarating hunting adventures I’ve experienced in my life combine Mule Deer with Archery. Compared to anything I’ve personally done in the outdoors, spot and stalk Mule Deer with stick and string is my personal favorite joy.  I plan all summer, waiting for fall and the chance to stalk a mature buck.  Motivated by big mule deer that gave me the slip in seasons past.  The 2017 hunting season was going to be difficult for me. I had a busy schedule planned during a large part of the season that would completely black out all my weekends through thanksgiving. I was left with a handful of windows during the last few weeks of the season. Everyday this fall, it seemed I went to bed dreaming about December’s unpredictable weather.
