Nevada High Country Mule Deer - Part 1

November 22nd, 2019

This week on HCDU is Craig's semi-live recap of his Mule Deer hunt in the high desert country of Nevada.

.

On this trip Craig was joined by close friend and Co-host Josh Rogers. Recording from camp and as the days tick away, the boys start going a little stir crazy and the shenanigans begin.

.

The high country desert of Nevada is a brutal climate with hot, dry, windy conditions throughout the day and dropping to almost freezing temps at night.

.

The Mule Deer that inhabit the area are extremely wary, evading predators every minute of the day and have very little movement throughout daylight hours making hunting these elusive deer challenging with the bow.

.

We have edited this one a little differently and hopefully you get to feel like you're  on the hunt with us.

South Cox -Stalker Stickbows

October 31st, 2019

On this weeks episode, Herbie is joined by South Cox of Stalker Stickbows, in South’s home in Colorado.

South Cox’s interest in archery started at the age of five when he found an old wood recurve under a neighbour’s house. Despite having no mentor and growing up in a vegetarian family during his younger years, the instincts of the hunter ran deep. 

At 16, he shot his first deer with a bow, cementing a lifetime commitment to the sport.

In 2007, with 20 years of professional woodworking experience, South took over Stalker Recurves, reviving a company that had been dormant for the better part of a decade. Combining both of his passions; a profound love of woodworking and archery, he enthusiastically dove into the new venture. His keen eye for detail and diligent work ethic can easily be recognized in the artistic changes, additions and technical advances in the bow lines.

 In 1989, South’s first bowhunting article was published, spawning a new career that would eventually have him published in a half dozen different archery magazines, contributing to a couple of bowhunting books and earning him a position as Field Editor of Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal, a position that he still maintains.

In 2012, with the blessing of his wonderful wife Kyri, after 25 years in construction, South decided to “retire” and take up bow building full time. Between writing and bow building, he is now fully immersed in the hunting industry, truly “living the dream!”.
