Hunting Diary

  • Round 2 - Anticosti

    After a day of travel, Gary and I settled into the hotel in Montreal.  The next day we would catch another flight to the camp of Cerf-Sau Outfitters, this would be my second attempt at taking an island whitetail off Anticosti. The Flight was very full of hunters anxiously waiting to get to the island, settle in, have one of the meals the island is famous for, and start the hunt they have awaited… read more »

  • Second Tag - Anticosti

    One of the BEST things about going to Anticosti is that you have TWO deer tags!  Both tags are good for bucks or does!  Now that Freddy turned the Jupiter River into “the Red River” with his buck, I was “back in the saddle” of the shooter’s seat, and Cowboy was trying to help us fill my second tag. While driving back towards camp (with Fred’s buck safely… read more »

  • Captivating Island - Anticosti

    Anticosti Island... If I had to use one word to explain that place, it would have to be “captivating.” I suppose I say this about a lot of the places I’ve been with Ralph, Vicki, The POSSE and Archer’s Choice Media in general, but “The Island” has a unique, “captivating” stigma about it. First of all, it’s an island, and islands are ‘captivating’… read more »

  • Love 4 Double B - North Dakota

    Once again we headed up to hunt with David and John Brandt of Double B outfitters in North Dakota, knowing we would see a pile of deer! When we arrived we had two other special hunters in camp with us! Tom Gallagher from Cabela’s and Jon Allen from Nikon were there to hunt with Double B too!! We arrived in camp the day before we were to start hunting. We needed to go buy our tags from the local… read more »
