Up Close!

September 17, 2014

I posted the story of our hunt on September 6th… but here’s the video of my encounter with the bull that came within 16 yards of me! In the video you can see that I would have had an opportunity to shoot when the bull turned. I was thinking all the while he was facing […]

Opening Day

September 16, 2014

August 29, 2014 found us hiking up the mountain to spend the night on a narrow hogback waiting for the dawning of the 2014 archery season. A dawn Gary came close to never seeing… It started with a very innocent looking shale slide. We have crossed many shale slides. This one really looked no different. […]

One Week into September

September 16, 2014

September 6th found us high up on the mountainside in the cool timber at the edge of the elk’s favorite bedding grounds. We had heard the bugles drifting down on the morning thermals as we hiked up in the dark that morning. Gary was pretty certain where they would be and formed a plan to […]

Little Arrows Falling ‘Round You Everywhere

October 21, 2013

Many of the younger generation wouldn’t remember the 1968 song, Little Arrows sung by Leapy Lee   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvXDxobNteA) But some of you might know the lines… the lyrics go like this…“There’s a boy ( in this case a girl!) a little boy,  Shootin’ arrows in the blue,  and he’s aiming them at someone,  but the question is at who?. The chorus says, Here they […]

Spring Turkey Hunting- Part 2

July 1, 2013

I know summer is upon us with all the wonders of fishing, camping, hiking and of course scouting for those big bucks and bulls… but I can’t quite let go of the Spring Turkey hunt! I had such a fun season hunting with my Dad, niece Brynna and even had an exciting solo hunt. Here […]

2013 Spring Turkey

May 25, 2013

It’s hard to believe Spring turkey season will soon be over in Idaho. My dad and I started it off with lots of action and dad was able to bring home the bird in the first week of the season… it was another pricless time spent with my dad in the woods! The second week […]

End of September – Close of The 2012 Archery Season

January 10, 2013

The last few days of the season were approaching and we hadn’t been able to get out much since our three day hunt on Labor day week-end. We decided it was time to drop everything and head for the mountains… We felt like our opportunities would be good higher up the mountain, so we loaded […]

Late Archery Idaho Mule Deer

November 29, 2012

I tagged out this year by mid-October.  That’s good because I like tagging out, but that’s bad because there are still hunts going on in October, November and December.  And I just have to sit and watch them pass me by.  In early November I was sitting at home when I received an email from […]

2012 Idaho Archery Elk Season- First of September

November 19, 2012

          Looking into one of the many canyons the elk call home   September. That magical month of pursuing a dream. The dream we have fostered for 11 months… For many the journey toward opening day begins immediately after the closing hours of the last day of archery season… and the […]

Bowhunting Elk

October 1, 2012

The folks over at Elk101 have a forum thread asking visitors to post their top elk bowhunting strategy.  Elk101 is quickly becoming my favorite hunting site – with loads of information and really cool webisodes completely devoted to my favorite animal, I was an easy fan.  However, this particular thread got me to scratching my brain, and […]
