First things first, sorry we didn’t have a post last week. We were having some family time in Oregon with my Mother in Law and I decided that spending time with family was a touch more important. Recently and as we got going with this blog and getting Kaela into hunting, we’ve had a discussion … Continue reading Hunting Ear Plugs, To Wear or Not To Wear.
This plan worked out well, the jump shoot didn’t have much. I lost another duck in the reeds, but we moved on and set up on one of the ponds. We had about 2 more hours of shooting time and we set up on the same spot we had shot our pintail hens earlier in … Continue reading Fish Springs Part 2
3 am is an early start for anyone, especially when you go to bed at midnight. I struggled to fall asleep the night before because I couldn’t contain the excitement.

We can chase grouse and dove and all of that is a big warm up for the best time of year, waterfowl season. December has come on full force with winter.

Since it's the holiday season. We decided to make a list of stocking stuffer ideas for hunters. These are things we use that are small and pretty cheap. They should make filling a stocking pretty easy and fun. We all know hunters like tend to collect lots of things through time so here's how you can contribute to it.
With plans made and shotguns and vests in tow, we made the long drive to Big Sky Country, one of my bucket list states to hunt in, and quickly fell in love with that state. I felt like heaven is very close to what Montana looked like. As we drove through, my hunter mind was going crazy thinking, “This is great coyote country” or “This looks like we’ll have a blast upland hunting.” The hills were begging for us to walk it and look for some game. After we arrived, we got set up for bed and were excited for what the next two days would bring.
