The Filson AEV Brute agile enough to handle any kind of rugged terrain you would encounter on a hunting trip, and it has all the capacity to transport all your gear and harvests.

It also has a classic styling that matches Filson’s line of clothing and luggage, which have been around for more than a century. And while we like the stylish interior, it’s perhaps a little too nice for the kind of mud and dirt we’ll be dragging in there.

Want to add this ultimate off-roader to your garage? You better have deep pockets; the Filson AEV Brute Double Cab costs $130,000.

This impressive 12-point typical whitetail is why Kansas is such a magnificent state for bowhunting.

It’s no secret that Kansas has some of the best whitetails in the country. The proof is in these pictures of a massive buck that bowhunter Colziah Jones shot earlier this week.

Jones, of Cowley, KS, said the 12-point typical whitetail grossed more than 190 inches. Estimated guesses place the net score for this buck around 200 inches. If Jones’ gross score is accurate, the buck is in close range to the state archery record of 193 7/8.

On Monday, Jones wrote on his Facebook page that he is taking the buck to an official Boone & Crockett scorer in Junction City, Kansas. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Congrats to Jones on this impressive deer.

Believe it or not, here’s an orphan deer being nursed by a chocolate lab.

Want to show your girlfriend that you have a sweet and softer side? Look no further, this video is for you.

This is one of the cutest things you will ever see—a chocolate lab nursing an orphan deer.

This momma chocolate lab takes care of this young deer, and you loving it doesn’t make you a softie. It just proves that most outdoorsmen don’t merely love to hunt game, but simply love animals.

Isn’t that the cutest thing you’ve ever seen or what? Did you even know that this was possible?

According to the video’s description, the fawn’s mother was killed in a car collision. A sad story but apparently a happy ending. No word on if the fawn made it to adulthood, but we’re sure hoping it did.

Things get a little crazy in Alaska during the moose rutting season, even in the suburbs.

If you’re living in Alaska during the moose rut, it’s a good idea to pay attention to your surroundings. Moose are everywhere, and the bulls are much more aggressive than usual as they’re seeking to stomp out competition for mating partners.

More often than not, Alaskan bull moose will take their fights into populated areas, which is what happens in this video filmed in an Alaskan suburb back in 2012. Notice the mailman sitting in his truck waiting for the brawl to pass.

Flying with a herd of elk looks like one of the most awesome experiences ever.

Seeing a giant herd of elk on the run is something that not many people even get to see in a lifetime, much less fly with.

But in this video posted to YouTube by JukinSports that is exactly what happens.

What amazing footage of flying with a herd of elk. It looked like the trike that he was flying in was only a few feet above the herd of elk at a few points.

While this makes the video even better, it could be aruged that is is very disruptive to the wildlife.

What do you think? Does flying a small powered glider this low bother wildlife in any significant way? Is it worth it to get footage like this? Let us know in the comments below.

A costly attempt to reduce Cornell University’s urban deer population backfired in a bizarre way.

In an effort to reduce urban deer populations on Cornell University’s campus in Ithaca, NY, scientists sterilized does and mistakenly created “buck magnets”, according to The Washington Post.

Cornell scientists began the sterilization project in 2009 after residents of central campus complained of a growing infestation of whitetail deer. Deer were ravishing local gardens, spreading Lyme disease, and causing car accidents.  Residents demanded action to cull the herd, and most didn’t want to use lethal measures.

Cornell opted for a costly sterilization program instead of lethal control measures. Biologists captured 77 does and blocked their fallopian tubes to make them permanently sterile. The procedure cost roughly $1200 per doe, and it yielded some unexpected and unwanted results.

Paul Curtis, a Cornell wildlife specialist, noticed that the sterilized does still came into estrous, which attracted bucks from miles around to campus. With more bucks coming to campus, the deer population didn’t decrease.

“There were about 100 deer on campus when we started, and there were still about 100 deer [five years later],” said Paul Curtis, a Cornell wildlife specialist.

Fawn and doe numbers slightly declined, but by and large, Cornell’s deer infestation problem hasn’t improved.

Female-Deer

In 2013, Cornell opted to use trappers and volunteer bowhunters to cull the herd. It worked, and it’s a lot cheaper, especially because the hunters are volunteers. From 2013 to 2014, Cornell’s deer population dropped from and estimated 105 to 58.

Sometimes — scratch that — most of the time, hunting is the best way to control deer populations.
