"As young Mozart cared for nothing but keyboards, strings, and woodwinds, so I cared for nothing but lakes, rivers, streams, and their denizens"--David Duncan, "The River Why" 📸: @benjamin_kraushaar
The weather was perfectly "fowl" for this year's Duck Opener. I am lucky to be married to this crackshot : @travis___hunter because I tend to be carrying a camera instead of a shotgun these days... someone's gotta feed me!
Happy National Hunting and Fishing Day! The public lands of the Tongass National Forest allow us to get out to spectacular locations and harvest deer, salmon, and other wild food that will sustain us all winter long. We found a conservation pledge from the cover of an old 1947 issue of Outdoor Life magazine—it still resonates, especially today of all days.

A bond between two people strengthened by nature. A deep and great respect for the animals we hunt and the land they call home. A desire to live a more simplistic and pure life. This is what Camp Thunderbird is to me. Watch the full length feature film at projectupland.com or click the link in my bio. 📷 @ajthirteen
We wouldn't expect @dansolsman of @provider_life for the coordinates of this stud #Idaho bull, but thanks to forward-thinking conservationists like him, @theTRCP was recently able to collect something just as good. More than 400 sportsmen from Twin Falls to Sandpoint provided valuable feedback outlining the places they value most for hunting and fishing. In an effort to help guide future land-management decisions by emphasizing areas most valued by hunters and anglers, the useful data have been assembled in a geographic information system that can be overlaid with maps showing critical habitat, land ownership, and planned development. The goal isn’t to give away secret honey holes, but to make sure they exist well into the future.
