Check out this video as a grouse hunter kills two birds with one arrow.

Killing two birds with one stone is how the saying goes, but the grouse hunter in this video from Solvid FIY puts a little spin on it by using one arrow instead.

Now, it may not be exactly what you are thinking as the hunter does not kill two grouse with one shot, but… well, I’ll let you see what happens for yourself.

After bagging one bird with his first shot, the grouse hunter spots another one roosting nearby after moving forward to retrieve his first bird. Acting quickly, the hunter simply grabs the arrow that he had killed the first grouse with off the ground and nocks it on his bow before making another great shot on the second grouse.

Although taking two grouse with one arrow in one shot would have been an incredible sight to see, taking a second animal with the same arrow that was just used to bag another bird in such a short period of time is pretty darn cool as well.

Have you ever been archery hunting for grouse or any other game bird? How was the experience? Let us know in the comments section below.

Dove season is just around the corner, one of the more fun and social hunts in the country.

In many areas offering liberal bag limits, the weather is warm and hunting is limited to the afternoon, eliminating the early morning rise.

The challenge of dove hunting is hitting these evasive targets. Most shooters take a couple of boxes of shells (probably more than 100 rounds) in the hopes of bagging a limit.

Like any type of hunting, the right gear can make your hunt more comfortable and successful. Bill Miller suggests these must-have items in an OutdoorHub post.

dove-hunting-041211[1]For the devoted wingshooting hunter, spring and summer are filled with clay target shooting. Doves represent the first real hunting opportunity of the fall. Satisfying as a smoked clay target can be, it’s never a 100 percent substitute for real feathers on real birds that can make erratic, evasive maneuvers—and result in terrific table fare. That’s why the traditional early September opening of dove season is such a big deal.

Except for turkey hunting—which is a whole different shotgunning ballgame—you likely have been away from the hunting field since the spring goose seasons ended. Are you ready to enjoy opening day?

Here are some things to put on your checklist to enjoy the opener to its fullest.

Kansas has a plethora of hunting options. You can chase, stalk, and flush just about anything but alligators.

With so much space and so many hunts going on, accidents are bound to happen, and they do, but in record low numbers. Last year, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (DWTP) reported just six incidents of hunting injury, none fatal.

The DWPT is rightfully proud of the lowest number of hunter incidents in 50 years. In this article, they suggest several steps to take in order to make your hunting days safe and secure.

  • Treat every firearm as if it’s loaded.
  • Never point your firearm at anything you don’t want to shoot.
  • Keep the safety on until right before you shoot.
  • Know your target and what lies beyond it.
  • Never put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

Rules of gun safety are just one of many lessons taught during Hunter Education courses in Kansas, and the program is a big reason hunting-related incidents in the state are at an all-time low. Since 1973, more than 500,000 students have completed the Kansas Hunter Education course.

WY Elk 2012 010How a deer is processed very much affects the taste and quality of the meat.

If you’ve ever considered processing your own venison, but were reluctant to try, this video will show you the steps from A to Z.

By doing it yourself, you can insure that you get your deer, that the cuts are exactly to your liking, and you’ll save $50 on each deer.

The folks at GrowingDeer.TV do a great job of explaining the process and the cuts of meat. Check out the video.

A small pack is like the desktop of a computer: There’s just enough room for the essentials.

If you  hunt before or after work, you want to make the most of every minute. That usually means a “grab-’n-go” pack that contains a few scents, a release, rangefinder,  jerky sticks, and camp paint. You know, the important stuff.

Like your computer desktop, you want those essential hunting items at the ready and you want to know exactly where they are at all times.

Tenzing just introduced the perfect small pack that has many functions, one that’s ideal for the hunter on the go.

TZ721_45With a breathable mesh waist, padded hip panels and a highly adjustable waist belt system, the 2-pound TZ 721 is designed to be worn as an unobtrusive fanny pack while traveling to or from the field. Once its wearer settles into the stand, however, the TZ 721 can be quickly and easily repositioned to the front to keep contents accessible and make use of the plush, built-in muff as a convenient and cozy place for cold hands.  But the TZ 721 Waist Pack’s creature comforts don’t end there. Four specialized pockets — carefully placed in strategic positions — accept hand warmers to heat the hunter’s core.

Available in Realtree Xtra and Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity, the TZ 721 excels at storing small items inside its 17 total compartments and pockets that might otherwise get lost inside larger packs. There’s a place for everything, starting with the hunter’s mobile device. A pocket inside the top flap of the main compartment allows for smartphone operation without ever removing it from the pack. Open-topped side compartments secure with adjustable bungees are ideal for rangefinders and binoculars, while the pack’s face pocket and sub-compartments are great places for calls, tags, wallet and extra ammunition. The TZ 721’s 294 cubic-inch main compartment is perfect for gloves, hats, knives, keys or cameras. Webbing and compression straps on the pack’s bottom come in handy for securing extra items like rattling antlers or a jacket.

This video, posted by Keith Warren, documents his first black bear taken with a crossbow.

This black bear hunt happened in Saskatchewan, Canada, with an organization called Woody River Trophy Hunts, owned and operated by Lance Miller. Miller was working with Magnum Outfitters this time around to take Warren out bear hunting.

Warren shot his huge black bear at night, so he was not able to recover it at that moment due to safety regulations, despite the fact that he clearly took it down with one shot. The bear only made it 60 yards after being shot.

Warren chose to use a crossbow for the simple reason that he wanted to. It is a unique way to hunt, so why not try something new?

Warren says, “there’s not a lot of hunting pressure up here,” in the eastern Saskatchewan area, which means the bears and the deer get pretty big.
