I Finally Stepped Up My Game to a Pro Level Vacuum Packer and It’s Fantastic.

If I’ve said I hunt for the meat once I’ve said it 100 times.  With that I often go ahead and do the butchering and packaging myself.  With the advent of the home vacuum packer years ago preserving your kill has gotten much easier and better.  For years I’ve used a fairly cheap sealer that could be picked up at your local Walmart.  For years I also struggled with poor sealing, multiple attempts, and if you ask my wife a vacuum sealer that sounded like a chainsaw in our kitchen.  No more.  I went big time and finally picked up a Weston Pro-2300 vacuum sealer and won’t be looking back anytime soon.   Continue Reading…

Sunrises From the Stand Are Joy’s that Only a Hunter Knows.

Hunting season started a little later for me this year than in the past but as with anything worth doing you’ve got to make a little time to get it done.  I did just that a couple Sundays ago and spent some time in the woods and realized how much I love the hunting experience.   Continue Reading…

Sharing Camp with Good Friends Shouldn’t Be Overlooked When Assessing the Success of Your Hunt.

For over 20 years I was a pretty solitary hunter.  I’d occasionally venture out with a friend every now and then but primarily it was just me.  As you enter your hunting seasons this Fall I hope you all come home with meat for the freezer but don’t forget about one of the other great benefits of hunting.   Continue Reading…

The Ascent Series in Subalpine Works Great for a Variety of Destinations and Game.  Photo Taken in Michigan.

It’s hot in Texas…but I didn’t let that stop me from hunting this summer.  Being blessed to have year round opportunities to chase game I didn’t want to miss any chances I might get.  With that, I needed something that I could wear to keep me concealed but also not cause me to melt into a puddle of sweaty mess.  Talking with a Sitka representative he recommended giving the Ascent Series a shot.   Continue Reading…

Methodically Stalking Wild Game is More Physically Taxing Than You Think (photo courtesy of deeranddeerhunting.com).

 

I was recently introduced to a new exercise…the one leg dead lift.  It was part of the circuit I was performing so I attempted to execute it to the best of my abilities.  I must admit, even with a light weigh, it was extremely difficult.  Following that workout I ironically was reading Continue Reading…

The C.1 is the Latest Offering from Maven.

If you’re going to hunt out West then you’d best plan on facing the fact that you need to have good set of binoculars.  I’m sure there on plenty of arguments for and against packing in a spotting scope but I can’t think of anytime I’ve heard someone question the need for binos.  When offered a chance to check out the latest optical offering from the team at Maven I didn’t want to pass it up.

Summer is Meant for the Outdoors (photo courtesy of canoethewild.com).

Summertime is in full swing right now so I wanted to take a minute to hit on a few things before it’s too late.  Just because there may not be any seasons open doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be working diligently right now on your goals.  It really hit home for me last week when talking to a friend and he said he would be hunting antelope in 6 weeks.  Not too long ago if a guy had to mail order any gear it may not even make it to him in time!

Midlands MicroMobile Series of Two Way Radios are Perfect for Mobile Hunting Situations.

Other than for sustenance, what is likely one of the biggest reasons people hunt?  I’m sure the list is arguable but I’m willing to bet that camaraderie will be pretty high on the list.   Hunting brings people and families together all throughout the year to spend quality time together in the outdoors.  With that, communication among party members is critical for success and often times safety or avoidance of spoiled meat.    The Midland MXT115 MicroMobile Two-Way Radio is perfect for those types of situations.   Continue Reading…

Looking to Add a Cardio and Core Workout? Burpees can do that for you! (photo courtesy of healthadviceworld.com)

 

Burpees are awful.  If you’ve done only one, you are already aware of this.  They are used as a penalty for not completing an obstacle at some of the fitness races.  How bad must they be if they are used as a punishment at an already grueling event?  Quite simply because they are a great tool for making improvements to your health and physical abilities.   Continue Reading…
