Missouri archery season opened on September 15, 2009. I hunted the opening week pretty hard. The deer were quite elusive and I was unable to pattern them. I ended up seeing only about a dozen deer or so during the week. This was about 100 deer short of what I’m used to!
There were 5 of us […]

My son has no fear of snakes. He has been intrigued by snakes since he was quite small. In fact, even when he was a toddler he would gladly grab a snake if he was ‘lucky’ enough to encounter one. Now that he is older (and should be smarter) his first inclination is to grab a […]
Last week, several friends and I (along with our families) headed down to Lake Ouachita in Central Arkansas for a little R&R. We rented a houseboat for the 11 of us and headed out onto the magnificent lake.
To be honest, most of our time was spent simply relaxing. Relaxing for us inlcudes: swimming, wakeboarding, hillbilly […]

On the second day of my recent Colorado archery elk hunt I ran in to some old boys from Oklahoma. Its funny, because I consider myself to be a fairly hard core hunter. These ole boys make me look like a girl scout.
Jeff and I were working our way along a ridge towards a valley […]
On day 6 of my recent Colorado archery elk hunt, I fell into a hole - literally. I was hunting by myself working my way down into a really knarly canyon. I had dropped down from the top about 1,000 feet and was working my way across the side of this mountain. As I was hiking […]
Day 7 - The three of us made our way back up the mountain that our guide had taken us to on day 3. Billy and I called in a giant bull. I never saw it because of where I was sitting and where he came in from. But, apparently, he got to within 30 […]
Welcome to Hell!
Day 4 - In the morning, I accompanied Jeff and Billy back to the area we had hunted on day 2. We jumped a large herd of mule deer, including 3 monster bucks. All would have been EASY bow shots. (Of course I wasn’t even carrying a bow as mine was back at […]
This year we hunted elk, for the first time, during the Colorado archery season. We left home on the evening of October 13th and arrived at the Circle K ranch in Colorado unit 71 on the 14th. This was a year of firsts. My first archery elk hunt. My first visit to the San Juan mountains. My first […]
