Eastmans Hunting Journal
Hunting
Knowing the right ways use your truck while hunting vast tracks of land can be a huge benefit. Nearly all of us hunters own a truck, but are you using it to its full potential? Now, I am not saying to drive around and hope that monster buck or bull steps out. Driving around aimlessly glassing from every pullout will not produce consistent results.

As much as I love the stage, touring, and performing to crowds, being able to sneak away and become secluded with just the wilderness and myself is something my heart, mind, and soul needs in order to operate cohesively. I’m either on stage nearing the end of a tour, anxiously thinking about getting into the mountains with my bow in hand or I’ve pu
A Father and Son Hunting Tradition! Wyoming Mule Deer!
Eastmans Hunting Journal
Hunting
Most of us started hunting when a relative or friend invited us to come along for the first time. If we were to narrow that down even further to the relative that was most likely to take us hunting it would probably be a father, or a father figure. It only seems fitting that the week before Father’s day we share a video on YouTube that has proven t

For those of us that make bowhunting a lifestyle, preparation for next season begins the day after archery season ends. For others, it might be a casual hobby or maybe you’re a weekend warrior. There’s nothing wrong with any intensity level of bowhunting as long as you’re a bowhunting! As preparation levels differ for each individual and hunting in

The era of the four-blade broadhead is here. It’s been over a decade in the making but they have begun to really gain popularity, especially in recent years. Why? The answer is simple. More total cutting area, designs built for accuracy and most importantly, hard-hitting modern bows to drive them home. About 15 years ago when my archery career bega

Stay On Top Of Your Game! Let’s face it; everyone wants to be a great shot. We all dream of drawing back on the animal of our dreams and watching the arrow disappear tight behind the shoulder. For some, this consistently becomes a reality, but for others, it will remain a dream unless they put in the time and work for it. There is one small differe
Crispi Valdres GTX Boot Review

I am somewhat of a nostalgic, the type of person that loves to recall a memory while looking at a picture or thinking about what places a piece of gear has traveled with me. Recently I was asked to review the Crispi Valdres boots and that brought back memories from one of my favorite pairs of boots from year’s past – the Crispi Hunters. It took ove

The Idaho Deer application deadline is June 5th. If you have put off your research, I’ve put together a little last minute cheat sheet to get you up to speed. The past winter was hard on the deer herds. Snowfall in most areas was well above average. Fawn mortality has been extremely high in some areas. In response Fish and Game eliminated antlerles

The days of “range guesstimation” are long over, or in your case they should be. I will admit, being a traditional bowhunter for many years made me resist the idea of rangefinding technology being incorporated into my gear. Boy, was that wrong! In my humble opinion, I since feel that having a quality rangefinder in your chest rig makes you a more c

With the wrath of the worst winter in nearly 40 years finally behind us, the Wyoming deer herd has suffered tremendously, particularly on the Western side of the state. The regions of G, H and K have taken the brunt of the winter losses. Along with that historic limited quota go to areas for many such as 102, 141/162, 130 and 105/106/109 have seen
Guy’s 2017 Top Five Wyoming Antelope Hunts

Generally speaking, antelope do tend to fair somewhat better during a rough winter than the mule deer do. Antelope are notoriously hardy critters given their size. I do think the antelope have managed to fair slightly better than the deer did this past winter mostly due to the relatively mild spring we have seen this year. Even with that said, I wo
