Hunting Diary

  • Second Time Around

    Second Time Around Late Muzzleloader season has been pretty productive hunting, over our food plots the last several years. This year’s weather was rather mild, there was still a lot of green for the deer to eat but the food plots were still doing their job. As Kim and I climbed in our stand which was a new shooting box we built over the summer, we had high hopes for a productive evening, even… read more »

  • Good things come to those who wait

    November   22nd we have been in Kansas for two weeks, Kim is tagged out and she has been filming me since she killed her buck and I only have two days left to hunt.  The rut is winding down and I am beginning to wonder if it’s going to happen this year for me.  I am still seeing deer just not the mature buck I’m after.    The morning hunt was slow and… read more »

  • My First with a Bow

    November 16th I found myself back in the stand, not even 24 hours after taking my Nebraska buck. I’m back in the stand this time in Kansas, and instead of having my trusty T.C.

Kansas had a very good growing season, this… read more »

  • Caribou Caribou Everywhere

    Caribou, Caribou Everywhere! In late July I got the call from Ralph and Vicki to join Joe Rush on the tundra of Quebec. Of course I accepted and the wait was on. I knew it would be a demanding hunt so I trained hard to prepare for the hunt. I was in luck because we were going to Colorado two weeks prior to this hunt. So I was in great shape for both hunts. After I killed my first elk ever and on film… read more »

  • Elk the Hard way

     15 years ago my dad set out on a quest to kill an elk with a Recurve. It was simple enough said that there was no reason it should not be a quest he could not complete. 15 years later we sit here and he still has the same goal. Most people do not understand what it takes to kill an elk, let alone try to kill one with a Recurve. We have elk hunted the same place in Glenwood Springs, CO for 4 years… read more »
