Since none of us would be here without a father, I figure I’d do all those fathers out there a solid and give you some gift ideas to make his Father’s Day one he’ll really appreciate.  Fortunately for you I started this project a little early so I can make some educated suggestions.  The following are products I’ve used and tested and would love if my kids get any of them for me.  Continue Reading…

Hunting seasons are in full swing with gift giving season just around the corner. I’ve compiled a list of various items sure to make any hunter happy this Christmas.

As the Fall hunting seasons get underway I hope everyone is having great luck and making some lasting memories.  Over the last year I’ve had the opportunity to try out some great gear.  I thought it would be beneficial to provide you with some suggestions as the Christmas season approaches and you start thinking about giving (or recieving!) some sweet outdoor gear!  As I’ve sampled all the gear in this article I have first hand experience with their capabilities, features, and functions.   You won’t go wrong with any of the following recommendations.

Don’t Let Social Media Have a Negative Impact on Your Life or Hunts! (image courtesy of wordstream.com)

What are you guy’s thoughts on social media?  Of course beings I have a website and several social media accounts, I’m not a hater.  At first (years ago now!) I was a little obstinate but after I had to get an account to see the pics of my kids my wife was posting I began to use it more and more.  Now I find it fairly useful, moderately entertaining, and with some verification slightly educational.   But even as social media continues to influence us more and more, I still have some reservations with it.

Random Hunter

During one trip to Colorado I was tucked back into some trees waiting for the elk to feed out into the open. As I waited this gentleman and his horse came passing by. He didn’t see me or I would have smiled and waived as he was enjoying his hunt just as I was.
