Mike Hanback's  Field Journal
Mike Hanback has hunted most species of big game from Alaska to Mexico during the past 25 years, but his passion remains big deer with big racks. He hunts for giant bucks with bow and gun in 5 to 10 states and Canadian provinces each fall.

Hanback, former managing editor of the National Rifle Association’s hunting publications, is one of the top hunting writers in the world today. He is currently a contributing editor and the whitetail-hunting columnist for Outdoor Life.

Hanback has written three books on deer hunting: Modern Whitetail Hunting (2003); Giant Bucks: A Lifetime of Lessons (2003, with Mark and Terry Drury); and Bowhunting Mega Bucks (2004). KP books published all three.

Many of Hanback’s hunts have appeared on Mossy Oak’s and Realtree’s television shows and videos. Hanback recently signed on as a field host for “Whitetail Extremes,” a new high-definition TV series from Orion Multimedia to premiere on OLN in 2006. Watch Hanback hunt for mega bucks from Montana to Saskatchewan to Alabama.

Hanback graduated with honors in English from Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tenn. He lives in Virginia with his wife and two sons
