Returning to My Roots

July 10, 2013

This article originally appeared July 10, 2013 in the Weiser Signal American. Sometimes there are places and events from our childhood we wish we could experience again, sometimes because our perception has changed and sometimes because we wish to experience the thrill again. My childhood was filed with trips to the mountains – the Strawberry […]

Wild Child

December 20, 2012

In more ways than one, I’m beginning to realize that I’m in a partnership with my wife in raising a wild child. Two of them, actually.  It’s true that our oldest son is daily gaining energy and exuberance much the same way that a hunting dog gains speed and lack of bladder control at the […]

Hunting Genes and Deer Poop

February 2, 2012

My grandfather has a theory that hunting runs in the genes, and looking at the number of children and grandchildren of his that love hunting the same way he does it adds credibility to the theory, for sure.  I know I’m thankful that my dad and granddad frequently made an effort to get me outside […]

Now you’ve heard the version or young fathers with families at home as to what happened on the first day of our bear hunt, so you need to hear the side from the next older generation.  Sue was the one carrying the tag,  and I was along to eat the noon sandwiches, and Zack, our eleven […]

3D Bow Shoot Fun

March 8, 2010

Saturday was the perfect day to kick off the 2010 3D shoot season. With temps in the upper fifties/lower sixties and the sun out in full force it was awesome to be outside flinging sticks. What made it more awesome was I got to take my little boy and my wife along as I shot […]

A Note From Jarrod Lile of Trophy Taker Inc.

August 19, 2009
