Last month, @kurtm2323 and @abbie.martonik went on their honeymoon to Alaska. They spent 2 weeks traveling through the beautiful state and shared some of the experiences and recommendations in the @heatherschoice blog. If you have any thoughts on traveling to Alaska, this is well worth the read! Also, check out the Appalachian and Adventure hats they’re wearing in our online store.

Fresh, bright orange rubs have always fascinated me since I was a little kid. The distinct smell of shredded bark, the deeply dug in tracks on the forest floor and the sight of a bucks forehead hair left behind are three indescribable images that to me, have always represented fall. Nothing gets me more excited than sneaking into a bucks core area and finding these little reminders that I'm on the right path. Figuring out how to kill a big buck is a mind game, one that I never get tired of playing and pieces like this rub are part of THE game, that I love so much!

I’ve had a number of new friends and acquaintances ask me what I shoot and what pattern camouflage  I use when hunting. I shoot a Mathews and rock my Badlands #approach and #approachfx. Is Mathews the best? For me yes! It is what I choose after shooting a number of options. Is Badlands Approach and Approach FX the best gear to use? I don’t know! It’s what I have found gives me an edge in the woods, it keeps me warm and comfortable (as comfortable as we can be hunting) during my long hikes or sits. I also choose the gear I do based on the people who represent the brands I choose as well as that company’s customer service. For everyone looking for the best of the best you just have to find what works for you don’t listen to everyone else.. I can defiantly tell you why I choose to use what I do. #badlandspacks #archeryseason #hunting #archery #eastmeetswesthunt #eastonarrows #blackgoldsights #mathewshalon32

I was listening to @aprilvokey 's Anchored podcast with @cameronrhanes last night while driving around looking for deer, and Cam put into words what I've had trouble describing to people. I've stated more than once how hunting the backcountry has changed my life in many ways. Well, his description of how wilderness hunting is special hit the spot. When you go without so many comforts for 7-14 days, you learn to appreciate things 10x more. You learn that the "big" things that make it tough to sleep at night aren't so big. You learn that complaining about things (sometimes subconsciously) does absolutely nothing positive for you. The mountain doesn't care about you, and working hard is the only option if you want to get better. Lastly, you learn to appreciate the people that you care about the most in a way that I still can't find the right words to explain. Backcountry bowhunting can be extremely tough, but as Cam said in the interview; "You find out more about yourself in 10 days in the backcountry, then you do in years in every day life." @eastmeetswesthunt

Finally sent one last night on a doe. It's been so long since I've made a kill, longer then I'd like to admit. Thanks to @hankcappiello for being there sharing his tree with me and the recovery. Beyond thankful always for moments like this!

About 85% of my trail cameras are on scrapes in the big woods. When you see a lone hemlock tree on the edge of open timber, I would bet on their being a scrape underneath it. I placed some preorbital gland on the branch, hung a @wildcarrotdeerattractant doe scent on another and then I pee in all of my own scrapes. It's been a winning combination in the past, so I'm hoping history repeats itself!

This is why I use @mavenbuilt optics. Being able to use these B.2 9x45s in extremely low light allowed us to find the herd as they came out of the cliffs. The video quality was reduced greatly when I converted it from an iPhone to Android, but I think you can see the light difference!

While whitetail hunting is more of a solo endeavor for me, elk hunting can create a sense of comradery like nothing else. I'm glad @christoomeyofficial was able to join me for a few days last  month in Colorado. I'll be sure to take you up on visiting again soon!

💥 A - Rotator Cuff Irritation
Fix: train the larger back musculature to engage properly so the cuff isn’t overloaded. Train the shoulder blade to hold in a better position so it doesn’t irritate the cuff. Refrain draw mechanics
💥 B - Upper Trapezius Irritation
Fix: strengthen the lower trapezius and rhomboids to take more of the load and tension when drawing and shooting.
Train the shoulder blades to properly engage down and back so that the upper trapezius doesn’t get overworked
💥 C - Elbow/Tricep Irritation
Fix: strengthen the tricep and bow arm shoulder to handle the tension when drawing. Strengthen the draw arm to prevent over pressing. Retrain shoulder position to establish a better foundation

Position your shoulder in the middle between reaching and retracted. This achieves a strong, stable, steady, and protected position for the scapula and shoulder joint.
Overreaching is unnecessary, and can often lead to inconsistent anchoring and poor shoulder blade position (shrugging up).
Collapsing can leave the shoulder blade disengaged and unstable, leading to unsteady aiming.
For those that are curious, the primary muscle performing this movement is the serratus anterior.

At its core level, archery is a muscular skill. Strength allows the archer to draw and support the bow. 
Stability through the joints enables a stable hold. 
Fine-motor control through precise muscular corrections allows for accurate aiming and execution. 
Shooting alone can make you an excellent archer. But like most skills and sports, highly specific training to improve each component of performance can take you from 95% to 100%.
Archery Strong is designed to give you that last 5% that you’ll never regret having when you release an important arrow.

Lately I've felt that my workouts and the results they were producing had plateaued. So I got with Christian Williams who owns Archery Strong and works with us designing workout and recovery programs for our customers at Bucks and Bows, and had him design a new workout plan for me. Tonight was the first one. All I can say is, OMG!!! I am completely crushed.  Yes that is sweat dripping from my shirt and hat.  I worked myself more in this 45 minutes than I have in any of the 3plus hours sessions I've been doing. I'm exhausted but feel amazing at the same time. I can't wait to see where I end up using this system. #archerystrong #bucksandbowsarchery #bucksandbows #gethealthy #getinshape #cardio #resultsrequireeffort #excusesareeasy #mtnops #optimumnutrition #prepareforthehunt #weightloss #eastmeetswesthunt #howdoyoudefineadventure

Put on about 3 miles today hiking in the PA mountains on the opening day of archery. Trying something different this year, spot and stalk/still hunting for whitetails. It's definitely a more difficult tactic but I absolutely loved this mornings hunt. Oh!

And I got to see some elk this evening. #bucksandbowsarchery  #bucksandbows  #sitkagear  #sickforit  #bowhunting  #archery  #hunting  #deerhunting  #bha  #backcountryhuntersandanglers  #publiclandowner  #keepitpublic  #primearchery  #goldtiparrows  #apexgear  #trophyridge  #meindlboots  #g5deadmeat  #g5outdoors  #mtnops  #archerystrong  #eastmeetswesthunt  #howdoyoudefineadventure  #eberlestock 
Posture and Spinal Alignment Points
A) A slight arch (extension) of the lower back as seen in photo is normal and does not affect performance. However, overarching (hyperextending) decreases the stability in the torso and decreases accuracy.
B) A slight forward tilt of the pelvis is also normal, shown in photo. However, excessive forward tilt leads to instability in the core and decreases steadiness throughout the frame.
C) Shoulders stacked over hips vertically WITHOUT excessive deviation of A or B shows good alignment and a strong frame to draw and aim from.
Well done @brittbarnhart.

The PA archery season is now open in all WMU's. I've had a great day so far, still hunting bedding areas and scouting some new areas. Passed on a 2 year old 8 point and had another small buck walk within 25 yards of me as I crept along the ridge. Still hunting has been a tactic my dad has used for years with great success, but I've always struggled moving slow enough... Today, I focused on the process rather than a destination and it was a great experience. Most likely going to sit on the ground near an apple orchard this evening.

@tylermartonik double down again in 2018? 
One of my all time favorite hunting memories was smacking this buck minutes after Tyler texted me BBD on October 29th 2016. Then helping each other haul them out of the woods.

On the very last evening of the hunt, Fred got it done on a 4x5 bull who came out of the timber checking the source or his cow call.

In less than 24 hours I will be settled in in the middle of over 64,000 acres of public ground with good friends, anxiously awaiting Saturday morning and my first hunt of the season. #archery #bowhunting #deerhunting #bha #backcountryhuntersandanglers #keepitpublic #publiclandowner #archerystrong #eastmeetswesthunt #howdoyoudefineadventure #bucksandbowsarchery #g5deadmeat #primearchery #goldtiparrows #apexgear #sitkagear #sickforit
How is true back tension generated? 
You may hear things like “squeeze your back”, “pull through”, and “use your back muscles.”
This illustration shows the musculature that holds tension when at full draw. They’re responsible for engaging the shoulder blade, arm, and entire shoulder girdle to hold a steady, braced position.
TAKE HOME POINT: Notice the direction that all of these muscles run in. To hold optimum tension at full draw, focus on squeezing toward your spine and slightly down.

"All About Beans" is my latest article in print that I had the pleasure of writing up for @bowhunter As a long time subscriber and fan it's always been a lifelong dream to work with this publication and Curt Wells. Soy beans have been a huge reason for my whitetail success and I really enjoyed sharing how deer and a bowhunter can utilize them! Check it out and let me know what you think.

Rocky Mountain doughnuts. The heart of a mule deer.  We were created to be stewards of the world which we live in. The harvest is more than the trophy, it is even more than the meat. It is a way to praise the God that created it all: the God who sustains and provides for us.

I watched this herd bull chase cows and run others bulls off tonight for as long as I could (I could watch this for hours) The bugles were crazy tonight! We are blessed to live in Elk County.

These boots have been with me every step of the way over the last 3 years and 30 days of hunting elk in the wilderness high up in the Rocky Mountains. They've been with me on the frosty mornings in November hiking with a treestand miles back in the Appalachian Mountains. They've carried me countless miles through the highest of highs and lowest of lows. They've been with me when I wanted to quit and go home. They've been with me when I was so sick that every step was a struggle.  The latest adventure tested me beyond comprehension, but they've been with me each and every step. This picture may seem so simple, but it speaks a thousand words to me.

The place that we called home for 8 days. I learned so much about myself sitting in camp reflecting on each hunt. Realizing how weak and incapable I was, I knew that God would be able to use my shortcomings for his honor and glory.  #Diverge7 #Sickforit #Elkhunting

After finally finding success, moods were definitely boosted. I was then able to follow my brother around and help him try fill his deer tag (We had all but given up trying to fool an antelope). Unfortunately, we would only fill that one tag on this trip. It was an amazing experience and one I’ll cherish the rest of my life. This was my first western hunt with my brother @wyattdbenson and it was onreal bro. I can’t wait for the next one. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention my Uncle Jim, who was our guide on this hunt among many other previous hunts. He’s done so much as mentor for me and my brother in exploring wild places, whether that’s through hunting, fishing, canoeing or anything else worth doing outside.
