    Here kitty kitty..

    Happy new year guys, just wanted to share a quick story from opening morning . My brother had gone out to do some predator control, with the rain letting up he'd decided to make a stand and had gone with a high pitch hand call our cousin had given to him years ago. Hit the call for 15 seconds stopped for 30, hit it another 15 and before he could grab his rifle had this 100lb lion right on top of him. So mind you he was sitting on his butt when he had started to call so he was in a bad way. Within seconds he saw movement as She was lunging in such stride towards him she was covering 20 feet in each leap. Stopping in such a rush she actually stepped back with amaze at what he might be..they were now starring each other in the eyes for what lasted for about 10 seconds.. just giving him enough time to point and shoot!!.. just hit the safety ..point and shoot.. she was just inches from the end of his barrel. In the pik his shooting sticks hadn't moved, he set his rifle on his right side as he got up. Luckily that was that. and everything ended up ok. I think he might need some new boxers. One less deer killer in the desert, very proud of him for handling the situation like a champ!!

    My boys got it done!!

    Well the day had finally arrived and the boys hunt was here. We were watching some smaller bucks starting to bed when Shane says "I got a good buck for Owen" we watch the good buck as he went into his bed and after making a plan we had decided our only option was to get in close. We decide to split up and me and my son made the 1000 yard stalk and got to the spot we wanted to be. We set up and I told my son it was going to be a long wait, but we were there, and once he stood up it would get real exciting ..real fast. Wind was blowing hard in our face and we were 85 yards from the buck. The wait was on from 8:30-3:30 I was so proud of my son. He was going on hour 7 when I looked up hill and the buck was up, I said okay buddy he's standing there, get in your gun. Like all 11 year olds I said do you see him in your scope and he said ... "no". Now mind you I'm looking Into the eyes of a stud coues less than 100 yards up the hill from us and calm as could be my son says.." I see that cactus we were practicing on" I zoom him in to max power and he says dad there's a deers head oh wait he has horns.. dad there really big horns!!.. I'm heart pounding, don't look at his horns (smiling from ear to ear) .. you got him son now just wait and he'll step forward. I hear the safety click he said dad Im perfect on him. Ok just wait and right then that buck stepped towards us exposing his whole body. I look to my son and said go ahead when your ready and before I could look back to my binos the shot was off. The buck didn't go 20 yards, piled up In the rocks he was bedding in. The excitement kicked in ..we were laughing ,hugging, highfiving ..he had done it.. what some may never get to experience in there whole life.. in walking up on one of these old brutes... I have been hunting these deer since I was his age and may never shoot a buck of this caliber and that's fine cause the look in my young boys eyes, when it was over .. was well worth it. well after the dust had cleared and pictures were done, we set off to fill my nephews tag. He loved this young velvet buck and was proud to have him. My nephew had put in work as well, shooting this deer on a follow up shot, the buck stopped at 270 yards and clay smoked him. I was very happy with the way these boys hunted. All in all we had a successful season and the boys are hooked for life.

    Ya I no first thing Grandpa said lol Fantastic Buck and story. Just curious - was the buck bedded in the shade or sunlight the entire time you were waiting for him to stand? Great question!! The buck was in the direct sunlight from 10 till he stood and it was hot

    2016 in the Books

    Tags are filled , Dad killed a good buck early November. My hunt started the day after Thanksgiving and it didn't take my brother long he smoked a good one on the 2nd day. Wind picked up almost everyday, all day after that. On day 9 after not seeing the one I was after, was running out of time. I glassed up this Lil buck at 10:30 in the morning and decided to wait him out. My buddy who also only had a day left was going to make a move on a buck I'd glassed up on another Ridge on down the canyon. The cards fell in my favor and I filled my tag. This year we put some good bone on the wall, cant wait till next year. Very proud of this year's bucks we worked hard for them.

    Colorado Rainbows

    Spent the last week in Colorado with friends and family, probably the best week of trout fishing I've ever had. My oldest boy learned how to set a hook, and the fight of big trout. I may of spoiled him a bit but it was worth it. The pictures do no justice to these big guys. What a trip and a early father's day we will never forget
