Fall is a very special time to be out in the mountains. The cool mornings and warm afternoons bring with them a change in color within the trees and a smell in the air that is unforgettable. I love this time of year.

Youth of America

Let’s face it; the youth of today ARE the hunters and sportsman of tomorrow. I have the distinct pleasure of taking several youth hunters out on their first hunt each year. What a great time it is to see the expressions of these boys and girls out in the field soaking in all the sights, sounds and smells. Not every hunt is successful with a harvest, but every single one of them is successful in the memories created.

Public Land Elk

We often hear that there are support groups for almost anything out there so I have decided to come clean. Hello, my name is Michael, and I’m an elkaholic. I live all year long for elk season. I am so addicted that I even start counting down the days till the following years elk season as soon as the current season closes. Hunting for elk with a bow on public land can be one of the most challenging hunts I can think of, but also one of the most rewarding. It is both physically and mentally draining. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to be successful at hunting elk on public land with preparations being an ongoing process.

Lessons of the Fall

Lessons of the Fall

I was taught early on in my hunting career the meaning of ethics and respect for fellow sportsman and the game I was pursuing. The teachings and guidance of my Grandfather and Step Dad in those early years still hold true to me today as if I was just learning them.
