For years I’ve been trying to come up with ways to get more kids involved in the outdoors. As I attend more and more trade shows each year, I’ve met an overwhelming number of kids who have a passion for the outdoors. I was lucky enough to grow up in a family who loved and […]

Here Comes Pork Chop

Over the years my travel schedule has become increasingly more and more rigorous. In 2015 I traveled well over 300 days and toward Christmas I decided that I wanted a new hunting partner to be with me on the road. I was hoping for a little Boston Terrier puppy to accompany me on my travels. […]

Learn A Ton – Save Your Bullets


No Comments

How To Hunt Rabbits Without Dogs


No Comments

Rabbit hunting is definitely a pastime best enjoyed with a baying pack of brush-crashing beagles, but don’t stay home just because you lack a pack of hounds or enough high-tech gear to make storm trooper jealous.
