Hunting Diary

  • Backup - Virginia

    On April 26, 2010 a good friend of mine, Frank Bottomley (Frankie), called and asked if I would like to go turkey hunting the next morning. He said he had a couple of birds roosted and with a little luck maybe we both could get one. We met the next morning and made our way through the pre-dawn darkness to our set up. At day light, the birds began gobbling but stopped as soon as they flew down from… read more »

  • Big Bear Country - Alberta

    Day 2 up in northwest Alberta at Big Bear Country Outfitters and it was my turn to hunt (Tim hunted on Day 1). We headed back to the same bait we sat the previous night. Our guides Jason and Barry knew there was a good bear on the bait so we decided to give it another go, and boy am I glad we did. The night started off quickly. No sooner had I clipped into my Hunter Safety System, Tim said “bear,… read more »

This year Vicki & I were heading out with Zendal...aka- Z; it would be his first time up there and he was pumped. Z has edited all the shows from up there the past years and now was ready to see it in person. Glenn and Steve run an incredible outfit.… read more »

We worked for our bears this spring, running up and down… read more »

  • Special Spring Morning - Ohio

    Once again it’s that time of the year; the smell of spring air in the turkey woods. I can’t believe how fast time goes by as I graciously get older. “Didn’t we just do this,” I asked Dusty. From deer to turkey that fast, but who am I to complain for this is what we live for the early morning thunder of an Ohio spring gobbler. Well to keep this short but entertaining, my… read more »

  • Mr. Excitement - Ohio

    Hi my name is Eric Soreo, I’m ten years old. Tony calls me, Mr. Excitement or the Crossbow Kid. Our day started off with an early wake up from my Dad. I had been looking forward to this morning, so getting up was not a problem. It was breakfast, get dressed, and out the door; we had to be in the woods! Tony picked us up and we were at one of the spots where he had been seeing birds in just a… read more »
