I just got back from my first waterfowl hunt of the season in a place I’d dreamed of hunting for many years—the Peace River Region of northern Alberta. It’s a l-o-n-g way up there, but the distance somehow makes it even more desirable as a hunting destination.
It’s go-time for moose. I'm hoping to put at least one huge ungulate in the freezer this fall, and the elk slipped by me in the short (I mean short) window I had to pursue them. Now I have the opportunity for a Canada moose.
There's a house bill that's making its way through congress that requires all states to recognize the legal licensing of firearms in the various states. If you're legal to carry in your home state the law would make it legal to carry your firearm into another state.
It’s no secret I’m a big proponent of getting kids excited about hunting. I take my own kids hunting whenever possible and promote youth involvement in the sport on this blog and other outlets as much as possible. In that spirit here’s a great story I’d like to share.

Last week another tourist met Mother Nature head on in the form of an angry grizzly. The tourist died in the attack leading to the second death in Yellowstone in one year.
Whitetail hunting kicked off with the arrival of September, putting treestands back into play for the season. Early season bowhunts have many advantages, including the fact you get to hunt unpressured bucks, patternable bucks and large groups of bachelor bucks that oftentimes lounge in full daylight as they feed.
I spent the last couple days scouting for elk in Montana. Temperatures were in the 90s and, although I was sweating to the oldies, I did have my first bull elk encounter of the fall season.
