    It's Official I'm Going Back

    Well, I made it official and am headed back to South Africa for a hunt. I debated on a 7 day or the 10 day hunt and decided on the 10 day one which includes a few more animals. So now the planning begins, well not really. Since I have been over once I'll just duplicate 99% of what I did...

    2020-2024 Colorado Season Dates

    Don't be surprised like I was when I posted the wrong dates for Colorado's second elk season. I don't pay that much attention to it since I try to hunt during the muzzle loader hunts but they have changed and if you are like I was when I was working I you need to put in for vacation so that...

    Knifes.........

    Since we are kind of on the subject of knifes today I thought that I would post up a question for you. I know that we all have fancy new ones. Changeable razor sharp blades and such but what is your oldest knife? For me it would have to be my dads old Solingin Premium Stockman's. My dad...

    October Storm Totals

    For the folks in Colorado and elsewhere that got this storm, how much snow did you get out of it? I'm at 6500' elevation and we got close to 10" of the white stuff. It's suppose to warm back up the end of the week and into next week so it may be a sloppy 3rd season here in Colorado

    The Jogger and the Cat

    This jogger had some fun up Slate Canyon out of Provo, Utah the other day. This is just outside of a major city in Utah. I used to hunt deer up and out of this canyon and packed many bucks out on the trail that was there at the time. It now looks like it is a good ATV trail...

    New Wildfire in Colorado

    Well, it had to happen. There is another wildfire here in Colorado off of Hwy 131 north of I-70. It is burning in unit 36. Campers and hunters are being evacuated and while they say that it is only 100 acres this morning it won't take very much for it to grow. They are lucky in that there...

    Elk Hunting Tricks

    So today I got to thinking about some of the tricks that I used to use to be successful in bringing home a elk every year. I had a great run for a long time and brought home a lot of meat, so much so that I would end up giving away quite a bit of it to keep fresh elk meat in the freezer. One...

    Colorado Grizzly Creek Fire

    I know that there are a number of us from Colorado on here and while I don't believe that anyone here hunts the area north of Glenwood Canyon I thought that I'd post some of the pictures that are coming out of the Glenwood Canyon area off of I-70. It is believed that a flat tire throwing...
