The weight of the turkey that left these tracks, in combination with snow conditions, may have produced the interesting circular pattern. Tracks laid in snow expand as the snow melts, providing clues as to how recently the animal was there. 

Tackling tracking in the snow

The first snows have dusted the Upper Delaware River Region. Other than giving everyone something to crow about on social media, some areas saw just enough accumulation to provide early opportunities for tracking animals and learning more about their “hidden” lives.

Tips on smoking

Not every cut of meat from a harvest, or the store, is the same. Some are tougher than others. Tough meat can be ground into burger, slow roasted, or even turned into stew meat. Another way to make the meat better is to smoke it.

A tri-hone whetstone and some patience can bring dull knives back to their former glory. 

Sharpening knives

We’ve all been there. Finally get the shot, the animal is down, and it’s time to get to the real work. You make the cut and sigh because your knife just isn’t as sharp as you remembered.

Youth hunting

There are more hunters retiring than joining the ranks each year. It’s a sad truth that the next generation of hunters will have to deal with. There will be fewer in the following generation too if the trend keeps up. The best thing to do to combat this? Take a kid hunting.

Coyote hunting offers hot action

Hunting the Eastern coyote has become more and more popular over time, to the point that many clubs and organizations now pit hunter against hunter for coyote cash in many tournaments around the country. But the lure runs much deeper for most than the smell of green.

Taxidermy Tips

• Every hunter and fisher has seen work that he or she likes. Talk to your friends to find out who did their mounts, visit their shops and look at some of their work first hand. Find out how the taxidermist prefers to receive the animal you’re having mounted.
