Round Up for July

It’s time to recap the most interesting, unique or ‘most read’ articles of this blog for July 2009.

Most Hits This Month

Who would have thought that photos would be so popular?  Since publishing these 2  items, they have topped each month’s “most hits” list.

First Place: Great Photos: That Wild Boar was Where?’

Second Place:Another “Oh, My” Story: A Piebald Buck!’

 

This copperhead will ruin your day!

This copperhead will ruin your day!

 

Third Place:Snake Dangers & River Tubing‘ – There is considerable interest in snakes now (probably because of all the problems folks are having with snakes due to the hot, dry weather).

Popular Articles

The series on river tubing has been very popular. In case you missed any, they are:

1) Snake Dangers & River Tubing

2) River Tubing Safety & Tips

3) Choosing the Right Water for River Tubing

4) River Tubing: Repairing a Recreational Inner Tube

This Month

Barometric Pressure and Fishing,’ has been so popular that I plan to do a series of articles on weather and fishing.

Finally

It has taken less than a year to pass 50,000 hits!   During July, we hit this milestone.  Thank you so much!

Mosey On Over to January’s Highlights: Did You Miss Any?

Round-Up of the Best!

 

 

Perhaps you have just joined this brilliant band of blogites and have only read a few posts. Well, I’d like to tell you about this month’s hottest!

Most Hits This Month Hands down, the most popular article this month was: Good Grief! A 30 Point Deer! Shot with a Handmade Long Bow!” Over 2100 people viewed this photo in the last 30 days.

“Amazing Photos” – Most Popular Category

Lots of you are into “Amazing Stories.” This month, I posted three photos from Louisiana (thanks to MDH*):

Great Photos: That Wild Boar was Where?” This has been the most active posting of an item presented this month!

“Removing the Gamy Taste” Blogs Are Popular

The set of 4 ‘Removing the Gamy Taste blogs really struck a chord with readers. The daily readership (of one or more of the articles) has been great!

On the recipes front, ‘Deer Chili in a Slow Cooker‘ has been very popular this month. With all the cold weather we’ve had, lots of folks have fired up their slow cookers!

“Turkey Hunting” Series

This series is moving right along. I’m writing about a season that doesn’t start for a more than a couple of months because I’ve learned that the hunters who prepare for the season are more successful than the average hunter.

I was surprised to find out how much there is to learn about turkey hunting. I’m learning as I write; biologists have really broadened our understanding of these big birds in the last few years.

Turkeys may not be the brightest boys on the block, but they are noble adversaries — wily and shrewd are two words that come to mind.  As a hunter, the more you know about them, the better your chances are of feasting on one of these great birds! Thanks for reading. I love writing!

A Day at the Office!

A Day at the Office!

 

Perhaps you have just joined this merry band of blog readers and haven’t checked my archives. Well, I’d like to tell you about this month’s hottest!

Most Hits This Month

Hands down, the most popular article this month was: The 10 Commandments of Knife Use and Maintenance.  It received hundreds more hits than any other offering in November!

Going to Other Sites for Amazing Photos

Lots of you are into “Amazing Stories.” This one has gotten a lot of attention:Good Grief! A 30 Point Deer! Shot with a Handmade Long Bow!’

More ‘Lead Poisoning in Venison’ Info

The second salvo in this on going ‘war of words’ emerged this month with: Remember the Lead-in-Venison Controversy? Here’s an Update!’

Stay tuned, later this week, I will report on the CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) findings on this issue (that just won’t go away).

Getting Some Reaction

Finally, I’ve been able to prove that someone reads my blog besides my mother. The 4 part report on Shoot or Don’t Shoot Spikes has brought readers out of the woods (pun intended) long enough to comment.

What’s On Tap for December?

Besides the CDC report on lead poisoning in deer, I’ve just completed a 2 parter on ‘Multi-tools.’ Included are some tips on what to look for in a useful-to-you-tool.
