Hunting Diary

  • Hogg’n at Hoppy’s - Florida

    Hunt WITH your kids so you don't have to hunt FOR your kids. My wife and I believe in this and have tried to raise our girls in the outdoors sharing in the love and passion we have for all living things as well as our God given right to hunt and provide for ourselves. Dani, our oldest daughter, is now seven years old and is becoming a pretty darn good hunter! (Sooner than later she'll be guiding… read more »

  • Hogs in the Heat - Florida

    Florida + July = HOT AND HUMID! Wow, I can't believe how sticky hot that place can be in July, but to be honest, I'd rather be there sweating and hunting hogs with Uncle Hoppy of Osceola Outfitters than anywhere else that time of year! Amy, the girls, and I had taken vacation to come down and hunt with Ralph, Vicki, and some of our POSSE. It had been a couple years since I'd shot a hog… read more »

  • Gator Addict - Florida

    I had the fortunate opportunity to hunt alligators for the first time in 2008 with Osceola Outfitters and harvested an AWESOME gator... Thanks to Ralph, Vicki, The CHOICE, and Hoppy Kempfer of Osceola Outfitters, I was about to do it again in 2009! With all their help, it was sure to be a great success and another memory I will not soon forget... It was my turn to hunt alligators and boy was I ready.… read more »

  • Peace River Bears - Alberta

    The spring of 2010 had been a long one. Bear season was upon us and I was going to be traveling to the famous Peace River region of Alberta. Ralph and I would be hunting with Don Lind, who also outfits in the Yukon Territory, Ralph and Vicki spend several days each fall hunting moose with Don on the MacMillan River in the Yukon. But this was a Black Bear trip, and I was hoping to see some of the color… read more »

  • One and Done - Manitoba

    We were fortunate this year to have an incredibly early spring; this allowed Rod, Joel, and myself the opportunity to completely overhaul our new Spring Bear hunting area. Adrenaline Outfitters secured this area over the winter and it was exciting to set up this new area and hunt these ‘gorilla bears’ on the East side of the province. The only problem with a new area is the time it eats… read more »
