March was filled with crazy weather and numerous beautiful bucks that entered the Northeast Big Buck Club Record Books. Along with the crazy weather, there was plenty of time to look for shed antlers. March was a hectic month and I am excited to share this blog with you. As we enter April I can honestly say I am excited that turkey season will soon be here. I hope you enjoy this month's blog.
NBBC Record Book Bucks
During the month of March, I had three separate scoring events. Two of the events were held at the Erie Sportsmen's Warehouse and the other event took place at Myers Sportsmans Connection. Sixteen worthy bucks were entered into the NBBC Record Book. The lucky hunters included Steve Yanacek, Rebecca Fowler, Trevor Counassee II, Eric Stevenson, Debra Gawlinski, Steven Wike, Jay Homan, Johnathan Bierer, Larry Hanas III, Jesse Melnik, Bryan Greco, Brian Baldwin, Jesse Lassman, Leif Stevenson, and Liam Stevenson. Steve Yanacek entered the largest buck of the month. His Crawford County fourteen-point buck scored 176 7/8 in the Archery Non-Typical category. Jay Homan brought in a set of matched sheds to be scored. The Erie County set of sheds scored 155 2/8 and had thirteen scorable points. Check out the video to see all of the amazing bucks that made the record book this month.
Shed Hunting with Fungeyes Glasses
March is one of my favorite months to look for shed antlers. With the snow melting and the days getting longer I am able to spend time in the woods looking for sheds. Over the past few years, I have been fortunate enough to find some excellent sheds. This year I found a product that made shed hunting a lot easier. A new pair of glasses called Fungeyes enabled me to see sheds easier than before. In fact, I found more sheds this year than I have in past years.
So what is special about these glasses? The creator of the glasses originally made them for morel mushroom hunters. The lenses aren't polarized but they are designed to enhance things that are grey or white in color. When I got my first pair of Fungeye glasses I was skeptical that they would make finding sheds easier. After wearing the glasses on my first shed I was sold on how well they worked. Since wearing the glasses on multiple trips I have been able to find big sheds and small sheds. These glasses helped me locate a matched set of antlers and they were small. The Fungeyes glasses really are amazing and make shed hunting easier. Each pair of Fungeye glasses come in a hard carrying case and has a cleaning cloth.

Finally, my new toy arrived! I won a Mossburg SA410 a few months ago and it finally arrived. I am very excited to shoot this gun and take it on a turkey hunt. The gun is a semiauto and the reviews have been great. The gun is in Bottomlands camo and the pattern is great for the turkey woods. I like that the gun comes with an extra full turkey choke, a Picatinny rail, and a turkey sight. If you are looking for a new turkey gun, I highly recommend this Mossburg SA410. Check out the video to see the gun.
Just this month I published my new book, "Through the Eyes of a Whitetail Fanatic." Over the past two years, I have worked on this book. There are thirty-six deer hunting stories that allow you to experience the hunt I was on. Writing this book allowed me to relive each hunt as I watched it unfold. If you are looking for a hunting book to read, please consider picking up a copy of my new book. The book sells for $20.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. I will autograph the book for you before mailing it to your home. The book is also available as an ebook at: https://www.bookemon.com/mystore
