Getting Rid of the After Turkey Dinner Blaahs

December 3, 2014

Sitting around most of the morning feeling bogged down after overeating the past couple of days, I suddenly remembered I had a special cow elk permit burning a hole in my pocket. It was rather late in the morning when we decided to drag these old, out of shape bodies up the mountain and try […]

Mama bear and cubs encounter

October 6, 2014

I hunted hard during my Spring Bear hunt and never saw hide nor hair of a single bear. I did see a lot of elk… so it is a given that during our elk hunts we see a lot of bear! Here is a little footage of the mother bear and her two yearling cubs […]

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 […]

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 […]

2012 Idaho Mountain Whitetail

January 30, 2013

We’ve become addicted to hunting whitetail in the mountains… these silent ghosts of the deep  woods weave a magical spell. Add the haunting howls of wolves, old growth timber with it’s hanging moss swaying and the towering giant moose materializing from swirling mist… This atmosphere  of mystery  draws you back year after year…

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 […]

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 […]

2012 Spot and Stalk Spring Bear (Video)

June 28, 2012

Tom and I drew spring bear tags this year. The unit we put in for doesn’t allow baiting,  so it is spot and stalk hunting. Tom carried his bow with him, along with his rifle just in case he could slip in close enough. I decided to concentrate on one thing at a time and […]
