@boonercreekoutdoors and I had an early morning arrow-flinging session this morning, and it looks like we're in for short blood trails and full freezers. After a few days in Ohio checking trail cams and hanging stands, we'll be Kentucky bound for the archery opener. September 2nd can't come soon enough.
This guy got the best of me tonight. I got him to take my mickey Finn -twice- before realizing that my hook had actually broken off sometime prior. After the two missed takes he was spooked and the most I could do was take this video. I'll be back tomorrow morning to get my revenge! -Ben
We're all about species diversity, and recently I've been lucky enough to check a couple more species off the list. My first carp may not have been anything special, but my first gar sure was! Now time to get after these guys on the fly...
Setting a barbed hook into your finger hard enough to break your tippet makes for an interesting start to an evening on the water. Pro tip: wait until the post-trip beverages have taken effect before you let your friends pretend they are medical professionals.
My spring break has consisted of many hours studying Sibley's bird guide, flipping through pictures of songbirds on the Internet, and listening to hundreds of bird songs in preparation for my research position this summer. Can't wait to be a point counting, nest searching, bat monitoring, camera trap deploying, and insect trapping fool this summer in the Pioneer Mountains of Idaho. -Hunter
#tbt to warm weather and thin air. To get to the shelf that this picture was taken from, we canoed 3 miles across Jackson Lake, hiked from the shore to the meadow seen below, and climbed a couple scree and boulder fields. After the picture, we continued up until getting cliffed out. Certainly one of my favorite adventures in the Tetons.
