My wife likes to give me a hard time about some of my music. She’s not a fan of movie soundtracks or live versions of songs. I like them because I can picture the movie or feel the energy of the crowd when I hear the artist interacting with the crowd. Maybe it has something … Continue reading Into Fish Springs
It’s finally here! Duck season opened for us here in Utah at the beginning of October. Just a few days before, I had been up in the mountains chasing grouse for the last time.

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. I tend to get that way before a hunt. Waterfowl hunting is one of my most favorite things and knowing that there might be birds … Continue reading Fish Springs Part 1

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.
