A bugle rips through the pines, as I hustle up the ridge, trying to close the distance before the first few rays of sunlight expose my position... My name is Tyler Stingley, and that's how I grew up. I cut my teeth chasing gnarly bulls and muleys is the rugged back country of North West Wyoming. No matter how far I go, that will always be my home. I've been shooting a bow since I could walk and learned everything I know from my father, though it amazes me how much more I am always learning. Like most true outdoorsman, I am always chasing that free minute to get outside. I have a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wyoming, and when i was in college, I started tournament bass fishing very seriously . I often walk a very fine line, struggling to find time to hunt and fish. Stay tuned for some awesome content from Archery Maniacs. I am truly honored to be apart of this team. Bowhunting is a game of odds. Work like hell to stack the odds in your favor.
To often we tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come from getting something we don’t have but instead recognizing and appreciating all that we do have. One of the greatest privileges we as Americans have is to exercise our God Given Right To Hunt. Hello everyone, my name is Nathan Weimer; I am a Petroleum & Natural Gas Engineer, avid outdoorsman, conservationist, and proud pro staff member of Archery Maniacs. My obsession for the outdoors was kindled on the outskirts of New Alexandria Pennsylvania, where I was born and raised. Growing up in a state that puts more hunters in the woods every year than any other state, the first day of rifle season was known to be a holiday. Schools would close, and all of the local businesses would hang signs wishing hunters a safe and successful season. For me this was the most exciting time of the year that was of course until my dad took me to the woods in early October 2001 on my first archery hunt. I was 13 years old when I harvested my first deer with a bow, and while it may to date be the smallest whitetail ever taken I could not have been more excited to put my tag on it! Fred Bear once said that, “A hunt based only on trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be” and I couldn’t agree more! Ever since that day, I have been hooked on hunting with my bow. So much so that during the off season, I am planning, practicing and counting down the days till I am back in the great outdoors doing what I love the most. Like anything, to be truly good at something one must start by reading or listening to others who are experienced, followed by countless hours of doing it yourself. My dad taught me that with a gun there is sureness and that the only way to be sure with a bow is to devote yourself to shooting each and every day possible. That being said you must become what we like to call an Archery Maniac! Whether you share the same obsession that I have with archery hunting or just enjoy clearing your mind by stepping on a range and shooting a bow then I encourage you to aim small and miss nothing. Keep ripping!
A bugle breaks the silence and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. A bugle like that through the September air can’t be replaced and it makes my heart skip a beat. I am exactly where I need to be. Before I know it, the bull appears at 40 yards…
Hello, I am Flint Wilhelm. I came from a family that hunted mainly for meat. As soon as I was able to keep up I would follow my step father around the hardwoods of Missouri chasing whitetails. That was the beginning of my obsession with hunting. I got my first bow when I was eight years oldd and have been hooked since. My first big game harvest came when I was sixteen. A 6x6 whitetail at 25 yards with my 50lb PSE in Wyoming. Since that day I have been lucky enough to take 5 deer, 5 antelope, and 2 bull elk with a bow.
I am not solely an archery hunter, but view it as a way to extend my season and perfect my stalking ability. If I had to pick one species that is my favorite to hunt with a bow, I would have to say elk in the rut.
The bull appears at 40 yards broadside. I hit full draw and stop him in his tracks with a cow call. I executed the perfect shot and watched as my arrow sliced through vitals right where I was aiming. A full freezer, a great bull, and a memory to last a lifetime. This is one of the many reason I am an “Archery Maniac” and Live Life At Full Draw.
