This is the time of year kids go off to college. All too often that means leaving hunting and shooting opportunities behind. Though it was a while ago, I remember packing my parents' station wagon with everything we figured I’d need for my first year at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The la...
Have you ever tried to travel with your pooch, regardless if it is hunting season or not? It can be downright impossible to take Fido on a plane, and many motels frown upon your furry pal as well.
This past weekend I did a meet-and-greet at the Billings, Montana, Cabela's store. I was pleasantly ...
Pronghorn hunting was better than expected, even with estimates of a slightly lower pronghorn density compared to last season (according to my friends). I thought numbers were fine, but I staked out waterholes while they ran around the country using the Be The Decoy pronghorn hat in attempts to stal...
Don’t let that friendly smile on my face fool you! At the moment this picture was snapped I was racking my brain trying to figure out how to sneak out of the Mossy Oak BioLogic booth in that Gamekeeper’s edition HuntVe without anyone noticing.

Hunting season is finally here. As you read this I'm in the field chasing pronghorns with my Mathews Z7 Xtreme. Although I hope to tag a buck, my first priority is to put my son within bow range of a Wyoming pronghorn. His hunting will be limited, as it is every season, due to my hectic travel sched...
You may have heard the flap over the past year or so about Montana making scouting cameras illegal to use during hunting seasons. It came as a surprise to many hunters, but if you read the fine print, it is indeed illegal to have a camera out and check the images if a "commission-adopted hunting sea...

Before he headed to the Range Rover with another third of my hand tools, Gunther gave me a list of things to prepare in the next day and a half. He said he wasn’t “taking no wussy” on a hunt like this. If I didn’t have everything up to snuff when he showe...

Young Gunther always wears camouflage. His red, wavy hair is topped with a camouflage beret canted to the left, giving him somewhat of a South African, or at least a British look. Slung across his back as he cruises the bike paths and backyards is a r...
After the big losses on Wall Street the past few days, you and I are broke again ... or at least severely depleted of money resources. Even if you're not invested in the stock market, don't breathe a sigh of relief yet. There's talk of a double-dip recession, and that doesn't sound good at all.
