We were in a spot of the season where things could have gone either way. I didn't expect the day to end up going the way it went. It started a few days before when I got a text message from a friend of mine that a rancher was putting out a call for coyote … Continue reading Utah Coyote Hunt, Or Almost Hunt.
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

As of right now we only have one month left of waterfowl hunting, so my mind is starting to change directions and I want to try and get Kaela on at least one more big hunt. I also want to get her shooting her new shotgun, so this meant a hunt was on the horizon.

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. We didn’t even … Continue reading I’ll Take A Teal But No Ice.
One thing you should know about us is that we are horrible at keeping secrets from each other and especially if the secret involves a gift. Lately I have been working a lot of overtime since we have a wedding and holidays to pay for. This worked out well when Black Friday came around.
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.
