As we greet the New Year 2016, the chilly weather made us ponder the best way of helping our readers to get authentic hunting information and resources. This is when we came up with the idea of suggesting them with the names of some of the best as well as interesting hunting blogs.
After lots of research we came up with a list of 10 interesting hunting blogs that our readers can follow for getting a closer feel of hunting:

The Suburban Bushwacker or SBW is one of the most interesting blogs, maintained by a 40 year old suburban guy.

Though he was always fascinated by the outdoor survival techniques of Bear Grylls and Ray Mears, he first went out on a hunting expedition only in 2006 with a “Republican Gun Nut”, per his words. His first kill was a whitetail deer. From this point he started his journey of not only learning about hunting but also thinking like a hunter. As he acquires knowledge on hunting, he jots them down with “Elk hunting with a bow and arrow” as a symbolic gesture of his transformation from a “Fat Boy to Elk Hunter”.
