Hunting Diary

  • Once In A Lifetime Woodland Caribou

    I know these stories are supposed to be short, but it would be impossible to give this hunt or the outfitter justice without taking some space… I know everyone starts their stories with ‘this place was amazing’… and I know I’m guilty of doing it quite often myself; however, I have to tell you that Efford’s Hunting Adventures in Newfoundland, Canada is one of the… read more »

  • A Nasty Nightmare

    Ever been thankful for an awesome Nightmare? Thanks to New Archery Products Nightmare Broadhead, I took my first bow buck on the night of September 19 in Wisconsin. Jess and I headed out that night with his bow in hand. I was cameraman for the night; or so I thought. We had agreed that I would take my bow too, since we had been watching a bachelor group of bucks near the stand we would be sitting in,… read more »

  • Shootin’ the Bull - Colorado

We were amazed to see just how much effort and R&D goes into the things we take for granted in the field. From there, Vicki flew home and I went to Colorado Springs where Joe met me and we headed… read more »

  • Elk at 11,200 Feet - Colorado

    After an early start of 3:00 a.m. to try and leave work a few hours early and get a jump on the most anticipated trip I've yet to be on, 2:00 p.m. seemed to take forever to come. Rushing home to grab my bags and gear, I was on my way to meet Tony Perillo at the local Bass Pro Shop. Arriving there around 5:00 p.m., we loaded up the truck and wasted no time getting on the road. The seventeen hour… read more »
