It finally arrived, do I look at it or not. As I turned over the Fish & Game card I was so happy to find out I was successful in drawing the Deer tag I put in for. A friend (who also drew) and I went out scouting...

Bull @ 18"

I had been hunting for some two and a half weeks in the area around Island Park, ID, my favorite haunt and hunting grounds, and had seen and heard plenty of bull elk. By the third week in September the cows were in full heat and the bulls in full rut..

Bull Elk Double Play

Bull Elk Double Play

I called my brother and told him about the evening hunt I had just gotten back from. The nice receptive herd bull I got within forty yards of but couldn’t make a play on, and about the lone spike bull that jumped out of his bed...

Day With The Wife

The day had been scheduled for about two weeks. September 3,2001, we dropped off the girls with the mother in-law who would be watching our two daughters, Ashlie and Halie, while my wife Jodie and I would go bow hunting mule deer in central Idaho.

Falling Leaves In Fall

Falling Leaves In Fall

I knew the hit was high as I watched the spike bull vanish before my eyes at 21 yards into the springhead. As I moved forward to see over the knob, I was knocking the finish-off arrow that would surely be needed on a spinal-shot animal.

First Turkey

First Turkey

My friend, Tom, had called and asked if I wanted to hunt turkeys on his property. Having never harvested a turkey my answer was obvious; "What time do you want me there?"

Javelina ~ 2000

After being notified I had drawn a javelina tag for Arizona's Ham hunt in a unit I knew nothing about I decided I had better do some homework or find someone that knew more about the unit than I did.

Nature ~ Medicine for my Soul

1996 was a very hectic year. I had advanced in my career taking on a plethora of new duties and responsibilities, and was selling my home at the same time. This left little time for me to enjoy the hobbies and interests that I love - like shooting my bow.

Scrape Lines on the Prairie

Scrape Lines on the Prairie

The letter from the Idaho Fish & Game brought the bad news that I had again failed to draw a tag for the controlled muzzleloader hunt for antelope in unit 41.
