The last 35 years has been a great ride and I hope I'am just getting started.From the many Whitetail hunts to South Africa and in between I have been blessed.On Oct.11 2010, I lost my best hunting buddy my Father to brain cancer even though he is gone me and my son will carry on the great sport of hunting he loved so much.One thing I would ask if you love this great sport we call hunting please don't put down other hunters just because of the weapon they choose to hunt with.We as hunters and gun owners have to stick together to protect the sport we love.May all your hunting seasons be filled with great memories !!!!!!!!

I come home with an honestly earned feeling that something good has taken place. It makes no difference whether I got anything; it has to do with how the day was spent. (By the one and only Fred Bear)
I owe everything I have experienced to the one man who took the time to introduce me to the outdoors. I remember all the sacrafices, teachings and patience my father passed on to me. I pledge to pass on what I have learned to those around me and my own kids, so that they too can have the incredible life I have been fortunate enough to live!-Over 25 years experience in chasing whitetails -Can't hunt, talk, or plan enough for whitetail's on any given day!
i'm lucky to have 2 bow whitetail slams. i bow hunt usually just deer and turkey and i also self video my hunts. i have been videoing and self videoing for the last several years.All of the whitetail slam bucks were bow harvests and 5 were self videoed.
I started hunting doves in Maryland at 11 years old on my grandfathers farm. This expanded to waterfowl within a couple of years. My deer hunting experience started when my younger brother took me up to Pennsylvania when I was a sophmore in college at The Citadel, where I was on the rifle team. He had me climb a pine tree where I sat for 4 hours. I didn't see or hear anything. My next hunting wasn't done until my father bought a farm in Chesapeake City, Maryland (around 1975). At first I hunted geese and ducks that would come into our fields and pond. Then, at around 37 years old, my brother again got me to go deer hunting on the farm. My first deer was a very fat doe weighing 201 pounds. Over the next 20 plus years he and I shot many deer. Not every year was blessed with success but we enjoyed every minute of it. In 1997 my mother passed away followed by my father in 1999. I retired in 1999 and moved to Florida. We sold the farm in 2001. I, then, took up hunting all over. In addition to Maryland, I have deer hunted in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Nebraska, Montana, Mississippi, Florida, Kansas, South Carolina, Saskatchewan and Mexico. I still get that "rush" when a deer walks into view and luckly "buck fever" still comes after the shot.

A good hunter remembers something I heard long ago-- Aim to be careful and be careful to aim. A quote from Annie Oakley, I feel so old, that I think I dated her in high School.
Hi Gang, I've been huntin' since way back when (killed my first deer, a spike, here in Florida in 1960) and have made my living in the outdoor industry as a guide, outfitter, and taxidermist( since 1966). Spent 6 months working hunt camps in Africa. I currently guide professionally for Osceola turkeys and ' Gators. Anyhow I set a personal goal long ago and that is to harvest one of all 16 huntable subspecies of whitetails in the USA. I currently only need six more, Columbian, Carmen Mountain, Avery island, Bull Island ,Hilton Head Island and Hunting Island whitetails. These are my next goals!!! I hunt mostly with my favorites, a Pre 64 model 70 in 264 Win mag with a Simmons 44 mag scope. ( best scope ever,has not changed zero in 20 years and gets beat around) or my "toy gun" a Winchester model 94 30/30. The "toy gun" was custom modified for me with a 16 inch barrel and Remington early model 742 sights. The boys I hunt with named it the "toy gun" because its so short " Its so little it must be a toy gun, why don't you get a real gun?" Well it carries almost 40 notches in the stock. But I also hunt with a bow and muzzleloader too . I have the access to hunt-- Florida (Seminole) ,Florida coastal (Gulf) and Virginia ( Southeast) for those interested... My web site is foxystaxidermy.com Contact me and Let's get something to skin!!! Foxy
All my life I have been and still am an avid hunter (wife claims fanatical ). I started with hunting small game at an early age (thanks to my Dad) and continue to enjoy all areas of hunting. I have been very blessed with good health and a lot of luck and I have many trophies. My passion lies in the pursuit of the whitetail buck. I recently (Nov 2013) took a large 180" Northern woodlands whitetail in Wisconsin and only need a coues deer to complete the Ultimate Slam. Watch out Mr. coues deer, I'm looking for you.
Chad SAVAGE Lenz has been a guide since the early 1990's, a career that came not only as second nature to him, but a natural progression, as he had always taken friends and family on hunting and travel adventures. Today Chad is a professional hunter; his passion is guiding, outfitting and hunting for all species around the world. Chad grew up near the Alberta Rockies spending most of his time living the western lifestyle near horses and cattle ranches in the west. He has been an avid outdoorsman, hunter and guide for most of his life. He has always been very successful in the woods, honing his tracking and outdoor skills to new levels, and as such, his early hunting buddies gave him the nickname "SAVAGE". Chad has been addicted to the wilds since elementary school, taking big game animals with archery equipment and rifles in his early teens.Chad is "Living the Dream" and has had the privilege to explore some of western Canada's great wilderness as well as some worldly exotic locations in his life's quest. Experience and skill has been developed over the years to add to Chad's natural ability to find what's he looking for no matter the terrain or obstacles that may hamper the quest.Chad SAVAGE Lenz has spent countless hours and days in Alberta's West Country, Northern British Columbia, Yukon, and North West Territory discovering for himself and his clients what these remote locations have to offer. Chad has also been fortunate to be able to chase his passions in the Arizona desert, Texas, Idaho and many other states, as well as Old Mexico. Off the North American Continent Chad has traveled to Africa, Australia, and Asia and he has plans to see the rest of the world!There are those that live the dream and those who just dream, life is too short to say "I wish I would have..."I have been lucky to have shared many an adventure with Tom M and proud to call him my friend!
Adventure bowhunting is my passion. Traveling to new areas and hunting unique big game species is exciting and it's a challenge to capture the bowhunts on video. Whitetail SLAM is a great idea and I plan to finish my ULTIMATE WHITETAIL SLAM as soon as possible.

If you bow hunt for the kill and not the experience, you will be disappointed more times than you will be satisfied.

Hunting and the outdoors is my true passion. I've been hunting since age five, when my dad, uncles, and cousins would drag me through the briar patches throughout southwest PA chasing cottontails! Yep, I was the "dog". All I ever wanted to do was hunt and hunt everything. Growing up in PA, whitetails have always been my holy grail. Whether I'm hunting with a rifle, muzzleloader, or my bow you can find me on stand come the fall/winter months. Now that stand could be in the woods of PA, WV, OH, KS, and on and on... or even Canada, but you'll eventually find me (just look up)!
Started bow hunting in 1966. Hunted with a bow only since 1974. My wife Vicki and i owned and operated an archery shop for 20 years. We now are on an adventure to take a whitetail in all 45 states that have a stable heard. The limitations i have set for myself are. Do it yourself bow hunts,on public land,and with video footage. As of 11-14-13 I have been fortunate enough to take a whitetail in 19 states.
Unlike most deer hunters.No one in my family hunted, so I got a late start at the age of 24 and loved it.Once having so.me success locally,I was interested in going to different parts of the country.THAT really got me fired up about taking bigger and better deer.From Texas to Sakatchewan Canada,Now the midwest.Then 10 years ago my friends got me interested in 3d archery.This has really had a big impact on my deer hunting.For the last 7 yrs,I considered myself a whitetail freak, before their was a name for it many years ago!
Born and raised in NW Ohio. I have been ate up with Big Bucks my entire life. I own and operate Treelimb Quivers and Sword Sights.

Don't quit trying because you're good, you're good because you don't quit trying.
Our family moved to Wyoming in 1994 and a whole new world was opened up to me. I went on my first whitetail deer hunt in Nebraska in 1995 and I have been hooked ever since. Of all the big game animals I've hunted, I think the deer is my favorite and the whitetail has claimed a special place in my heart. I have deer hunted in over 20 states and my goal is to pursue deer in every state in the US as well as Mexico and all Canadian provinces.
When I was 12 years old in the deer woods with my father I hear my first buck grunt. I immediately immitated him with my mouth, and he ran right to us. From that day on, I have through much trial and error, and great success, perfected the art of mouth calling whitetails. Grunts, Growls, Clicks and snortwheezes are all part of my repertoire, with some other secret tricks as well. Look for me on WhitetailSLAM on video this upcoming season.
Adam Crumrin of Martinsville, Illinois is an avid bowhunter. He got his start around age 9 when his parents got him his first bow but never would have guessed the passion it would soon ignite in him. He started bowhunting whitetails at age 14, but with high school sports really never had the time to hunt other than weekends and holidays. It wasn’t really until after college when Adam could spend the time hunting and pursuing monster whitetail the way he desired, spending every free minute in the woods trying to think like a weary old buck, figuring out why they do the things they do and go the places they go. He learned early on that there is a big difference in “deer hunting” and hunting for mature bucks. He believes the only way to do this is with aerial photos, topo maps, trailcam photos and countless hours year around in the woods. Adam harvested his first buck in 1994 it was a 160” class whitetail. Adam then decided if it wasn’t P&Y he was not harvesting it. Outside of his full time job with the Illinois Department of Transportation he manages his family’s small Illinois farm for big whitetails with food plots and proper doe management, Adam has went on to kill over 20 bucks with his bow, 3 of which gross over 170” and one is over 190”. Adam has always tried to film his hunts but never tried to get the shot on camera. In 2005 Adam took his hunting to a new level when he was asked by the owner of Lone Wolf Treestands to start self-filming his own hunts for a new show that would air on TV. Since then Adam has work with one of his boyhood ideals in the world of bowhunting and trapping Tom Miranda. He has been a part of Whitetail Country on ESPN and Dominant Bucks on the Outdoor Channel.
Joe started hunting at a very young age and was lucky/fortunate/blessed to grow up in a hunting family. His father cultivated Joe’s love for the outdoors and helped him take his first whitetail at only five years old. Joe gave up the rifle when he was 15 and started bow hunting full time on his own. Chasing the heavily hunted and pressured whitetails in the South taught Joe tremendously, and he has been able to grow his hunting passion into a full time business as the owner of Sporting Adventures International. After College Joe went to Africa where he was accepted to the very prestigious G.A. Steenkamp professional hunter’s school. Upon completion of the school, he then spent the next few years working as an apprentice under different Professional Hunters around Africa before getting his full PH license. He is one of only a few US citizens to hold a cherished Professional Hunters License and takes his clients on dangerous game safaris to Northern Mozambique and Southern Tanzania. Joe has been very fortunate over the years and has hunted or guided in 11 different countries. Just this past May, he took the new free range world record Red Stag with a bow in Argentina. Whitetail has always been his true passion, and he has said “Guys that can consistently kill mature whitetails with a bow year in and year out can be successful hunting anything on the planet.” Joe now spends the better part of the fall hunting deer all over North America and has taken many Pope & Young bucks. He really enjoys hunting different locations and different deer, especially figuring out a particular animal and moving in on him. In his opinion hunting big mature whitetails is by far the greatest challenge in the hunting arena, and he hopes to continue doing so for many years to come.
