    Nevada Outfitter for deer

    My dad and 2 uncles have never hunted Nevada and are wanting to go. They are up there in age (70's) and cant do a really physical hunt. They are very experienced. They aren't too particular about the area, but obviously would like a shot at good bucks. Any one that would like to share some...

    Mule Deer Success Thread!

    Found this ol boy on opening day. We decided to hunt an area that we've seen a few bucks in before, but the forest service had gone in and cut all the junipers down for Sage Grouse habitat. Figured it wasn't going to work out because there isn't any real cover, and the deer can see for miles...

    My nephew was out walking around their property yesterday and stumbled on this elk shed. Pretty good Roosevelt!!! We were out there a week or so ago and saw a bunch of elk. Some pretty good bulls around here this year!!! Think I'll go out tonight and try to match this set up.

    Fishing 2015

    Fished the mouth of the Umpqua on Sunday. Bite was a little slow, but just enough to keep me out there all day. Landed 2. One Chinook and one Jack. Lost a bigger Chinook to a seal. Had a lot of takedowns but no real hookups. Great day fishing! The seals are out of control. Need a seal tag quota...

    Well, we hunted hard for 5 days and only went 2 for 5. Made a stalk on 2 bucks on the last evening but ran out of light and my dad and uncle couldn't get a shot. Had a great trip and hunted some of the most beautiful country I've ever laid eyes on. 3500 miles round trip is a looooong drive...
