    Pahvant Elk Tag..Paint Me Picture!

    Otters and mule deer mounts

    Got my otters and my CO muley back from the taxidermist the other day. The otters​ are from 2015 when Indiana opened it's first river otter season. The limit is 2 per season, and since fur prices are horrible and I've always thought otters were cool, figured I'd get a mount done. The muley is...

    26 Moose Scouting Trip

    Rabies FYI

    While my son was out in the yard playing wiffle ball Thursday night a bat ran into the side of his face and clamped onto his eyebrow/eyelid, and he had to pull it off, at witch time it clamped onto his hand as he tried to throw it. After finally flinging it off, he and his two brothers...

    Rainbow Jake

    Well after a very typical for me first day implosion on a couple nice long beards, and with rain and wind coming in for the last two days of my 3 day hunt, I decided that a Jake under a double rainbow was a sign from above that I had better make hay while the sun was shining!

    Kifaru on a Crew Cab?

    I've got a Crew Cab and am thinking about adding capacity for extended (7-10 day) hunts. Was wondering if anybody had tried a kifaru bag (camp bag, markhor, tahr) on a Crew Cab and how well it works. Thought it might work like a nomad, without buying a new pack. My giant Cabela's dry bag will...

    Paunsaugunt Management Buck

    Anybody have any information on the Paunsaugunt management buck season? I might have enough points to draw a tag and I think it would be awesome to just be in the unit in November. Just wondering if anyone had tried it, and could give me an idea of what to expect if I decide to give it a shot.
