    Pheasant hunting without dogs

    your biggest threat in this type of hunt is the ability to find a wounded bird. Being a good shot is important. I have probably hunted dozens of times and a lot of birds without a dog but concentrate heavily on certain habitat and hunt it differently. My dog points and retrieves. In certain...

    Looking for boot opinions

    I have Lowa Tibet GTX and they have been great for me for the mountains. I am really loving those. I have hundreds of miles on danner pronghorns over 3 seasons on prairie only and they still look great and are waterproof. I do take really good care of my boots and actually clean them and treat...

    Antelope advice and thoughts - specific scenario archery

    I don't know where the bedding area is. This year is tough. Really wet year and grasses are waist high in huge patches of land. I was busted on another approach when I didn't even know they were there because grass was so high. I tried to keep the berm in between us until the probably winded...

    Antelope advice and thoughts - specific scenario archery

    Man, I wish it was that easy. They do leave the same way as fences are on 2 sides and road on other. They run into a big wide open area. Great for guns, terrible for archery

    Antelope advice and thoughts - specific scenario archery

    I spent some time archery hunting last weekend and blew several stalks (go figure! 😅 ). However, one of them I feel like there would be some strategy to provide a better opportunity. I characterized the layout in the picture below so I can adequately describe the scenario. I got inside the...

    Sales Engineer Insight

    People I know that are sales engineers that are salary with commission on the top end up doing a lot of project management. Consider that as well. It is really difficult to get a good sales engineer though. It is in my company.

    Carolina Griswald comes to SD and WY? What else to visit???

    Hiking the badlands is awesome. Keep your eye out for rattlesnakes. If you have never seen Rushmore, it is definitely something to see with the historical context and details that can be found while there. It is not as big as people build up in their mind but worth seeing. I have taken...

    Proper Meat Care for Antelope

    This is almost exactly what I do. I stuff the cavity with bags of ice as quickly as possible. Bring the rear legs up and the front legs down and use a strap to hold them that way until I get home. with the hide on, it is like an on the spot cooler. It cools them off quickly without drying out...

    SD Draw

    My daughter and I both drew (second choice for me). It is her first buck tag which is pretty cool. She benefited from the free preference point for first time applicant but normally the unit we apply for is a 2-3 year draw cycle. Pretty surprised we have any tags. Her tag has me more excited I...

    Danner Pronghorn thoughts

    I have had 2 pairs of pronghorns. Like others mentioned, not great in the mountains. However, they are excellent in the prairie going after antelope, pheasants and grouse. I put a ton of miles on mine. Neither of my pair leaked even standing in water in marshy areas looking for birds. Maybe I am...
