I'm writing this blog from seat 13C on a flight from Minneapolis back to Wyoming after a whirlwind visit to the land of 10,000 lakes, specifically Minneapolis. What could possibly make me leave the hinterlands for a trip to the big city smack dab in the middle of hunting season? You guessed it: work. The producers at North American Hunter TV are creating a new opening for the show and to hit deadlines they asked everyone who co-hosts episodes to wash the camo off of their faces, clean up more than a camp, baby-wipe shower and meet in Minneapolis for some speedy filming.
I dropped off the mountain Monday midday and by midday Tuesday was wandering around airports on my way to the city. It actually was a welcome break. Sleep has been limited and couple days off from hiking did my body some good. If you're contemplating being a member of the show "Biggest Loser" to lose some weight, forget it. Join me out West in September and you're bound to lose that extra 10 pounds or more.
I also was able to catch up with my friends at North American Hunter TV including Bill Miller, Gordy Krahn, Luke Hartle and Mr. Whitetail Larry Weishuhn. We've all been in the field already this fall so the stories were fresh although some embellishments were obvious on the size of the bucks encountered and the shots made on fowl.
2011 will be an exciting season for NAH TV. We all have a busy filming season ahead and although a few shows have been shot already, the best is yet to come as we all tackle the wiley whitetails.
My first gun hunt is just around the corner for whitetails. I'll be muzzleloader hunting next week and I'm hoping my new TC Omega has the chance to blow some smoke at a "big un!" Here's hoping you get to see the action next year on NAH TV.
Really, do I still smell like cow elk urine? I took a shower!
