Bear Hunt – Fred, Part 2

Bear Hunt – Fred, Part 2

Today we got out on time and were in the blind and ready to hunt at 4:00. In order to get a head start on the hordes of mosquito I started the ThermaCELL in the truck so that when we got to the blind it would be going full bore. It helped a whole lot […]

Food Plot Hog – The Search

Morning. Time to look for the wild hog. The hill side is thick and rocky, a perfect place to pay a visit to a rattle snake, so I pulled on my snake boots, got my bow, binoculars and video camera (it takes both pictures and video and is a lot lighter than my real camera). […]
