Josh Honeycutt deer hunter from Kentucky who grew up slinging arrows and bullets at pressured river bottom whitetails.
If it’s deer or turkey season, you’ll ﬁnd him high in an oak tree or sitting up against one. And he enjoys spending that time in the outdoors with his wife, Kathryn, as well as the rest of his family and friends. Josh has hunted the prairie whitetails of Kansas to the river bottom bucks of Kentucky to the pine-dwelling deer of South Carolina. Simply put, he loves to hunt deer. And it doesn’t matter where, either. His passion for the outdoors led to a career as an outdoor writer, photographer and videographer. Josh has been a regular contributor to Realtree.com since 2012 and came on board as the associate editor and deer hunting editor in July of 2015. He writes for the Brow Tines and Backstrap online publications. His work has been published in nearly 50 publications and websites including: Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, North American Whitetail, Whitetail Journal, Game & Fish, Fur-Fish-Game, and more. How do you like to hunt? Hunting diﬀerent animals comes down to your personal preference. For instance, with turkeys you can take the ﬁght to them, but with deer you just have to sit in the blind waiting. Did you know that mouth calls play an important role in the hunting process? Diﬀerent mouth calls can impact your hunt. They could either hurt your hunts or help your hunts. But really what it boils down to is experimenting with the diﬀerent calls to see what bites. Josh is doing what he loves––writing and creating content for the outdoors and hunting community.
