Don’t Let Jealousy Eat You Up This Deer Season

I knew it was gonna happen. Tyler Jordan, son of Realtree President Bill Jordan, kills the No. 2 typical bow buck of the 2022 Georgia season and GON releases the story earlier this week. Here’s two of the comments that came from the GON Instagram page:  “Privileged hunter in a controlled hunt. Definitely not fair…

A Good Day On The Water

Typically, when I go fishing, I like to catch fish. That day, my better judgement was trying to convince me to choose another activity. All the cows were lying down. The wind was whipping. A storm was rapidly approaching. The water in the pond was cold and overflowing from recent heavy rains. And there would…

A Special Deer Herd

Some tracts of land are just different. I am really referring to the wildlife that inhabits the land. Most people reading this story can understand what I mean. I have been to some properties in the state where deer will absolutely not eat out of a trough feeder (like at my home in Berrien County),…

It’s Not Easy, And We Aren’t Pretty, But… GON

It’s not uncommon when putting these GON magazines together each month to take a pause and recognize how blessed and fortunate we are. Seeing all of these articles is a much-needed reminder that we are blessed and fortunate in many ways. We could talk endlessly about the incredible hunting and fishing opportunities in this state, …

Where My Story Starts

Her name is Lauren. And that’s where my story starts. In October 2002, she was 11 years old. The little girl from Morgan County grew up on a farm but had never done any hunting. I spent a lot of time in my high school and college years on that same farm so I had…

The Story Of Eastside

The story of the Eastside 9 began way back in 2017. I was videoing my hunts off of a cheap camcorder back then, and I got some videos of a young buck. This young buck had obviously gone under a barbed wire fence or something because he had a section of fur missing on his…

The Story Of Hook

The story of Hook is one that starts years back. Hook first showed up on my camera in 2019 as a 2.5 year old. He got his name because his main beams hooked toward each other in the front. His rack looked the same every year after, it just grew bigger each year. In 2020,…

Walking Stick

In the corner of my grandparents’ lake house, a group of dried sticks leans against the wall. Each one tells a story. Each one I have used. From cold winter strolls, to humid summertime treks, those sticks have accompanied me. Many times I was not alone, with either my grandfather or my brother, or both.…

I Stepped On A Copperhead! Preseason Prep Gets Interesting

In Episode 1 of Season 4, Clae Mathis and the Out There Outdoors crew are busy filling feeders, setting stands and cameras and doing all the preseason prep work to be ready for deer season. “It is time to get trail cameras back out. We had a lot of work, but things got interesting when…

GON’s Trophy Room – August 2023

Since Georgia Outdoor News magazine started in 1987, we have continuously enjoyed sharing the accomplishments of others. Some months we’ll receive hundreds of pictures of happy hunters and anglers every year who just want to share their accomplishments. We are truly blessed that so many loyal Georgians think enough of GON to share with us about what they’ve accomplished.…
