My dad first took me backpacking at a young age, which likely contributed to my love for exploring wild places untouched by roads and motorized use. Thank goodness we have public lands to enjoy anytime we choose. #publiclands#keepitpublic#takeakidhunting#backpacking
If you can, consider skipping the shopping frenzy and take REI’s challenge to #OptOutside this Black Friday - click the link in our bio for our top places to hit #TrailsNotSales in Nevada, including the massive Sheep Range Proposed Wilderness Complex in the Desert #WildlifeRefuge (pictured) - just a 25-minute drive from Las Vegas! 📸 Kurt Kuznicki of @nevada_outside
This is exactly why I use @onxhunt maps. There were multiple signs like this and no trespassing signs right in the middle of a large section of BLM, nowhere near the private ground. Know where you stand!
The Ozark National Forest has natural gas, timber, and land resources in addition to beauty and wildlife. The Forest Service determines how our forests are used in a process that includes public notification and environmental assessment for each project. Information about all projects, whether repairing roads, adding amenities for hikers, or building natural gas pipelines, is published on the forest service website. In the Ozark National Forest, CenterPoint Energy and Arkansas Western pipelines carry natural gas through the forest for use in northern Arkansas and Missouri. Timber and biomass resource harvests are also managed by the Forest Service. Biomass resources are small trees that are chipped and added to coal burning power plants. Since the Ozark National Forest is multiple use, the Forest Service is responsible for balancing demands of resource use, recreation, and conservation.
One of the most important parts of the hunt is the story that accompanies it. Listen to *E43: Rut Raging Rooster* of The Element Podcast, to hear everything that led up to us arrowing this JUMBO public land buck!
Hung out with @man_of_1000_hobbies in his shop while he practiced with his “new” toy after HCW went to bed. I love his passion for his crafts and dedication not only to his hobbies but to our family as well. Killing it, Logan 👊🏻🦆🦌🐏🐻🎣🏹🔫
Thankful for the connection. Some hard-earned free range organic venison. Nrs cam straps ftw. Thinking about how lucky we are in this country to have the opportunity to partake in man's ancient rite, to hunt. Too many countries have desecrated their wilds. Thankful for #publiclands and those who fight to #keepitpublic and #keepitwild .
There's a lot of talk about summers in Southeast being the payoff for eight months of sodden misery (on average)... but what measuring annual rainfall in feet can do for you is really make you appreciate the random bluebird winter day... That is, until you try the ol' "spot and stalk" across a frozen muskeg and every step is so loud it echoes off the valley walls. Oh well, time to hunt the deep timber.
Public land whitetail, the challenge of chasing mature whitetail bucks on ground that anyone can hunt really gets me fired up! Finding new hunting areas and being successful... on public land is the ultimate achievement for me. Even if I’m not successful just the fact that I’ve had an opportunity to have an adventure in a new spot or state I’ve always wanted to hunt is what drives me. I have been having public land adventures for big bucks for 20 years now and trust me in the old days it was all about paper maps and boots on the ground, since that time with the introduction of google earth I scouted spots from my home computer and printed my own maps, now with the introduction of smart phones and apps it’s all about @onxhunt for me. It’s all in the palm of my hand. I still scout from home using the @onxhunt chips then load it to my phone app cache the area and even if I don’t have service the app still works. This is what gives me the confidence to go to new states and chase deer on public land that I’ve never seen. By scouting from home I spend more time actually hunting and less time looking for a place to hunt. -
