    Opening The Can Of Worms...Coronavirus...

    Unfortunately, this one is not about the number of deaths. If you get it and die, you are not part of the problem. The problem is that if you get it and DON'T die, you might take up a hospital bed. The hospitals are getting overwhelmed at an alarming rate. So the real effort is focused at...

    Alaknak Tent

    I have that 12 x 12 tent also. Like it just fine. If you just want to go bigger, Cabelas used to make it in a 12 x 20 maybe they still do. One thing on this tent, if you are in warm, rainy weather and do not run the wood stove, it will sweat pretty bad. Wood stove dries it out the inside in...

    Carrying A Pistol In The Woods

    I get sick and tired of hearing how safe it is because so many million made it and only twenty never. Ask one of the twenty what they think about it. It's like if a large number of people are safe it justifies the loss of those that aren't. Not many people eaten by a Mt. Lion but if one...

    It's in the air.....I felt it.

    Walked outside at 5 am this morning and a breeze hit the back of my neck. Made my hair stand on end. Cool, not strong but steady. Yep it's here. Sat. bow season opens. I'm headed out Wed. morning. This is my first year being retired, so I can hunt everyday all season long if I so choose...

    New shotgun....Cabelas???

    The ol' Mossberg was giving up the ghost, so I popped into the local Cabelas to look at the Benelli Nova. At 399 they were about 50 bucks under the other Benelli dealers in the area and I had a 50 dollar gift cert. so it just seemed logical. I asked the guy behind the counter what the...

    2017 trail cam

    Took the Browning out and pulled the card out of the Moultrie. Out for a week. This is the same ridge I saw the wolf on. Not near as much sign as usual, but it's early. Hope the canine hasn't got everything pushed out of the area.....

    Browning Strike Force trail cam....issues

    Browning won't turn on. Put fresh batteries in and set time and date before leaving home. Got it all set up and it won't turn on. This thing has had little use, although this would have been the third season of use. I have an older Moultrie and it's out there now. Calling Browning customer...

    Oregon wolf

    Spotted my first wolf yesterday while looking for spring bear. I've seen tracks in this unit and know of another hunter who spotted one a couple years ago. The thing is a week earlier and almost to the hour, I was in exact location and had a nice mule deer buck run right up behind me. Never...

    rut photos

    Been out a few times looking for bucks in the rut. Found a few smaller ones. This guy is biggest so far. Nice buck, but I'm a little bummed nothing bigger has turned up. Snowing today, so maybe it will bring the big guys out.
