    Spent the last several days with my 2 nephews, Dad, and Brother chasing whitetails in our family hunting spot. We've been hunting these public land whitetails for a long time, next year will be my 40th year hunting this same place. Pretty good hunting this year compared to the last several...

    Last ditch effort elk

    With spending so much time sheep hunting, I didn't get a single day to hunt on my general tag. George and I decided to give it a go, yesterday, the last day of the season. First spot we looked, found a cow and calf but decided to pass. Went to the next spot, with the local winds cooperating...

    2019 WY Sheep

    Going to be tough to capture this hunt and do it justice...but I'll give it a go. This is really a story of 26 days in sheep country on 4 separate trips. I got to know a friend of mine via some hunting and policy issues and through that communication we of course started to chat about hunting...

    2019 WY Pronghorn...at a glance

    I glanced at this pronghorn this morning on my way back from hunting sheep, where I got fogged out of any glassing opportunity. My first thought on a glance at about 100 yards was no, good thing I took a second look when this buck turned. A quick glance at several hundred yards would have been...

    2019 WY elk take 2

    This past winter I decided to refinish my old 6mm Remington. I had a new pacnor barrel put on and did all the refinish work on it myself. Applied 25-30 coats of finish and thought it came out pretty well. This was my first big-game rifle that my Dad and Grandfather bought for me new in 1979...

    Nephews second WY elk

    My Dad, Brother, and 2 nephews came down yesterday to help my oldest Nephew Aiden with his cow permit. We left early this morning and right at daylight we found a herd of maybe 100 or so. Another hunter was making a move on them so we decided to move to another area. Didn't take long and we...

    "old" ruger shoots...

    Got out this morning and put 17 rounds down range. Used some old ammo I had loaded to get on paper and rough site. Shot 3, 3 shot groups using varget, RL 17 and RL 19 Shot the varget first, right at an inch but nothing to write home about, but could likely play around and get it to shoot...

    Old/new Ruger m77

    This was my first big-game rifle that my Dad and Grandfather bought for me in 1979. Ruger m77 in 6mm Remington, built in 1978. As with most rifle that kids start out with, this one took a pretty good whoopin' over the years, nice way of saying I beat the shit out of it. I cant say for sure, but...

    WY Public Land article

    I worked with Christine Peterson on this article she recently wrote for HCN, I think its a pretty good one that explains some of the complexity regarding inaccessible public lands and how difficult the solutions may be: In mid-2016, a state of Wyoming website ran a notice detailing a proposed...

    WY Commission tag data

    Apparently a new Wyoming based group is taking on the issue of WGF Commission licenses. Many sportsmen in Wyoming have been biting around the edges of the issue for a long time, but this group has clearly put the leg work in and compiled one hell of a comprehensive report. I would expect some...

    AZ deer 2018

    Got home from deer hunting in Arizona barely in time for Christmas. As usual, it was a great time down there and IMO, Arizona does a good job of balancing quality hunting with opportunity. I did this hunt solo and was equally rewarding and challenging at the same time. My worst day I saw 4...

    WY whitetail safari...2018

    Checked out the leftover tag list and decided to apply for type 3 on the chance I would have time to hunt toward the end of November. I decided to try the leftover area first and found this guy on a piece of public. Didn't take much critical thinking to decide this one was plenty good enough...

    My Dad, Brother, Nephew and I decided to try some mule deer hunting in a part of the State we haven't really hunted much. We settled on dates and started hunting last Saturday. First priority was get my Nephew his first mule deer buck. We started out seeing plenty of deer and he passed up some...

    Ended the Pronghorn season

    Drew my 3rd choice tag this year, same as last year. Probably be the last time I hunt this unit, which is sad, because its been pretty darn good over the years. Too many assclowns desperate to fill a handful of doe tags pulling the usual stunts that give pronghorn hunters a bad reputation. The...

    WY 2018 Pronghorn

    Spent the last 4 days out looking around for a buck for my wife. I cant say how many bucks I looked at, a couple hundred I would guess. I found 3 that I liked and had intel from a good friend on this board about another buck. I looked quite a bit for that one, but didn't turn him up until the...

    WY elk, round 2

    So, George and I ran into each other shortly after I moved to Laramie 18 years ago while I was hunting elk in a general unit. I camped close to where he and his group have been hunting since the late 1960's and George and I have become pretty good friends. He was bummed that he couldn't make it...
