White-Tailed Deer Hunting Tips
As the founder and CEO of Tri-National, Inc., Robert Rogulic oversees the transportation provider’s operations in nine different locations. An avid hunter, Robert Rogulic maintains membership in the Boone and Crockett Club, where he holds the hunting organization’s record for the largest antelope ever shot. Big game hunting can be challenging, yet rewarding. Here are some tips for hunting one of the more common big game targets, white-tailed deer.
Avoid moving too quickly. If a hunter sees a deer running away, that should be taken as an indicator that the animal spotted him, so taking slow, small steps is crucial. It’s also important to plan out steps that allow for observation while moving.
Another beneficial step to take is to identify places where game lie, so that close-range shots can be anticipated in the event animals rise. Taking along a turkey call is also effective for a deer hunt, since the animals assume that a nearby turkey indicates the location is safe.
Moreover, it is a good idea to hang a tree stand at least a month in advance, since deer pick up on changes to their environment. The waiting period will allow the animals to become acclimated to the new scents and cut brush.
Finally, if a shot is missed, remaining still can prevent the deer from running off in fright, since it may only be slightly alarmed.

Ducks Unlimited - Protecting North American Grasslands
Logistics and shipping professional Robert Rogulic serves as CEO of Tri-National Incorporated, the North-American NAFTA transportation company he established. Outside of his work in logistics, Robert Rogulic is active in hunting and sportsmen's conservation efforts including Ducks Unlimited.
Ducks Unlimited came about at the height of the Dust Bowl, when duck and other waterfowl populations were declining rapidly. Sportsmen joined together in conservation efforts, working to restore habitat and protect bird populations for generations to come.
The organization is currently focusing its efforts on five sites of key importance, including the vast prairie pothole region, which stretches across American and Canadian central grasslands. The area provides all-important nesting grounds to millions of geese and ducks each year as they migrate.
Unfortunately, habitat loss approaches 90 percent in some parts of the prairie pothole region. Ducks Unlimited's Preserve our Prairies initiative helps to protect nearly 600,000 acres of habitat through stewardship and international cooperation.
What You Can Do to Protect the Wetlands
As the founder, president, and CEO of Tri-National Inc., Robert Rogulic has dedicated himself to providing partners with a reliable logistics service that operates throughout Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Robert Rogulic is also a supporter of Ducks Unlimited, which aims to protect wetlands to preserve waterfowl species. Following are some suggestions on what you can do to protect the wetlands.
Your initial focus should be on the ecological balance of the wetlands themselves. Source trees and plants that are grown locally, as this will ensure the balance is not disturbed.
In addition, there are things you can do around your home, such as recycling whenever possible and properly disposing of your waste. Pick up any litter you find, and use phosphate-free laundry detergent, as phosphates encourage the growth of algae that can disturb other marine life.
Banding together with your community or local organizations to keep track of construction sites can also be helpful. Moreover, encourage site fingerprinting, which limits the disturbance caused by construction to the absolute minimum required. You should also push construction phasing, which will prevent the clearing of an entire construction site in one fell swoop and minimize disturbances.

In addition, they must wear the camp t-shirt provided by the Edgewood Valley Country Club.
What to Look for in a Logistics Service
Founded by Robert Rogulic, Tri-National Inc. provides transportation services to clients in Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Clients turn to the company for its reliable logistics service, owing to Robert Rogulic’s dedication to using the latest equipment, finding the right people for the job, and ensuring safety at all times. Following are a few things you should look for when securing a logistics service.
1. The provider should have a stellar track record that includes recommendations from previous clients. You can also look for involvement in groups such as the Truckload Carriers Association and any awards the company may have received.
2. A dedication to using the latest technology in terms of vehicles, transportation management, and warehousing is a must. Ideally, the company will provide insight into your service by offering a tracking service.
3. The human element is crucial, as technology means little without the right people to operate it. You should look for a company that is as committed to its own people as it is to offering a quality logistics service.
The National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program
A leader in the transportation industry, Robert Rogulic oversees the operations of Tri-National Inc., as president and CEO. In this role, he ensures the company provides safe and reliable transportation services throughout Mexico, Canada, and the United States. In his leisure time, Robert Rogulic is a keen hunter and longstanding member of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Gun safety is a key concern for the NRA and the organization has established the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe program to help youngsters understand what they should do if they encounter a firearm. It advises children to follow these steps.
1. Stop. Stopping ensures the child maintains a safe distance from the gun and offers the time needed to remember the steps to follow.
2. Don’t Touch. Under no circumstances should the child touch the gun, as doing so increases the risk of it being fired.
3. Run Away. Running away from the firearm creates distance and also removes the temptation to touch the gun.
4. Tell an Adult. Children should inform a trusted adult, such as a parent, guardian, or teacher, about the firearm so it can be dealt with safely.
Waterfowl Conservation - Placing and Maintaining a Wood Duck Box
Tri-National, Inc., founder Robert Rogulic oversees an international fleet of ground transportation vehicles. Alongside his work in the trucking industry, Robert Rogulic is an avid hunter and conservation proponent. He supports Ducks Unlimited, a national leader in wetland and waterfowl conservation.
Human activities nearly led to the extinction of the wood duck during the early 20th century. Loss of habitat contributed greatly to this problem. While wood duck populations have recovered in the decades since, they still need assistance.
Building a wood duck box can encourage these birds to settle down and establish a new population. These large birdhouses should be built near wetlands with a good mix of open water and green plant cover. This area should also be rich in insects and small invertebrates for food.
Wood duck boxes must also be maintained. Wood ducks cannot bring their own nesting materials into man-made nests, so humans need to help. Boxes should be inspected in late January or early February. Stewards should repair any damage, remove old nesting materials, and add 3 to 4 inches of fresh wood shavings. Birds may use these boxes multiple times throughout breeding season, so it is advisable to continue monthly inspections through late June.
Wood duck box blueprints can be downloaded for free at www.ducks.org.
The Highway Angel Program - Recognizing Heroes in Trucking
Robert Rogulic serves as the president and CEO of Tri-National, Inc., the truckload carrier company he established. Robert Rogulic is a member of the Truckload Carriers Association, which sponsors the trucking industry’s Highway Angel award each year.
For more than 20 years, the Highway Angel Program has recognized truck drivers who selflessly go out of their way to help others while on the road. This award is announced at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention each year, which concluded its 79th event on March 29, 2017.
The 2016 Highway Angel winner is Daniel Sieczkarski, a driver for Melton Truck Lines. Mr. Sieczkarski found himself in Texas in April 2016, when severe flooding caused several fatalities and widespread destruction. After noticing another semi truck parked sideways and threatened by rising waters, he set off to rescue the driver.
With the help of several other motorists, Daniel Sieczkarski was able to swim out to the stranded driver and help pull him to safety. Within an hour of the rescue, the entire truck was submerged in floodwater.
Three Things to Check When Field Judging Antelope
For the past several years, Robert Rogulic has led Tri-National, Inc., as the president, founder, and CEO. An avid hunter, Robert Rogulic belongs to the Boone and Crockett Club and holds the organization’s record for one of the biggest antelopes of all time.
The size of antelopes, particularly pronghorn bucks, can be extremely difficult to judge in the field, and this can result in hunters taking an antelope that is much smaller than intended. When field judging an antelope, consider:
1. Horn length. The best way to measure an antelope’s horn length is by comparing it to the animal’s ear. Most ears are around 6 inches in length, and trophy-level antelopes have horns that are at least 16 inches in length. This means the horn should be about two to three times longer than the ear. Keep in mind that horn length measures the outer curve of the horn, so horns with a large amount of curve may have more length.
2. Prong size. Prongs are measured from the back side of the horn to the tip of the prong. Ideally, prongs should be roughly 3-5 inches away from horn. Unfortunately, this can be difficult to judge, so many individuals compare prong length to the horn width. If the prong appears longer than the width of the horn, the antelope is most likely large.
3. Mass. Judging an antelope’s mass requires a comparison between eye width and horn width. Most antelope eyes are 2 inches in width when they are fully grown. When the width of the eye appears to be the same as the width of the base of the horn, the antelope has a horn circumference of about 5 inches. Horn circumference should be around 7 inches for a trophy-sized animal.
