    Mystery Ranch is the shiz.....

    As some of you may know I have been using a MR Cabinet for a few years now. I love the versatility of the configuration and the load carrying ability is crazy good. Well, after my last hunt of the 2020 season I was cleaning and putting away gear and noticed one of the interior seams on the bag...

    Time for Ol' Doug to find a new home.......

    There WILL be ammo......

    Ammo is on ALL of our minds for sure. I can tell you that when Scheels opens in the Springs (27MAR) we will be fully stocked with ammo. I don't know how long it will last or what the limits will be yet but I have seen a LOT of pallets just waiting to be stocked. Bummer for me.....we won't be...

    Indy area folks.....

    Some of you might have seen that I have pulled the trigger on a new truck. To get what I wanted I had to buy from a dealer outside of Youngstown, OH. As such, either this weekend or next I will be making the drive across I70. My plan is to stop in Indy for a day or so and wanted to know if...

    I THINK I am going to take the leap.....

    As some have you may have been following along with my hunting rig travels over the last several years, you know that I have been doing the separate daily driver/hunting rig thing. All three of my hunting rigs have served me well, especially Doug. However, I am in the situation now where Doug...

    Prayers for a good man....

    Woke up this morning to find my father in law was headed into surgery for a lung transplant. He is a retired fire fighter who was down to 10% lung capacity. While he is my wife's stepfather, he has done more for her and her sister than their father ever did. I ask that you pray for Larry...

    A bit of a an crappy day in a horrible year......

    So, I tried not to think about it today. I went to work, made an elk roast for dinner and then it hit me. Today CPO and I should be arriving in Sullivan, IL and getting settled into the cabin in anticipation of the whitetail gun opener tomorrow. We were both drawn for the hunt and were very...

    THE 500 in August just isn't right.........

    I am watching THE 500 on TV currently and I have to say I am going back and forth between happiness and sadness. I am happy to see all the TV shots of home and revel in memories but looking at the track that should hold 400,000+ empty hurts my heart. I almost think it would have been better to...
