    D7 Forky

    It's been a while! Glad to see the OG's still keeping this page alive! Got me a decent forky in D7. I had a couple much bigger 3x3's on my cameras but this is a solid buck for this zone and I was happy to take him. Trying to get my dad and son one now.

    D7 3x3

    I shot my biggest buck yet yesterday evening. I have been chasing this guy since archery season and I was finally able to connect with my rifle. It was about a 150 yard shot as he was running uphill away from me and I was able to slip one in just before he went over the top. I tore my calf...

    Another proud dad moment

    My oldest son was able to take his first buck this season during his first year deer hunting. I just got notified that his pics and story of our hunt made it into the California Deer Association magazine! I might be more excited about it than he is. My youngest son thinks we're famous now. Ha...

    Public land archery hog!

    My buddy and I were working a creek bottom on some archery only public land and seeing tons of sign but weren't seeing anything. We were about to head back out when my buddy heard something crossing the creek coming towards us. Out popped this sow and I quickly repositioned to get ahead of her...

    Last day of the season and I was able to fill my tag this morning! Luckily my dad was with me to help with the pack out. It was exhausting but very rewarding. What a great day, we'll never forget this hunt!

    My sons first buck! D7 forky

    My son, Hunter, got his first buck yesterday morning!!! And this was his first year deer hunting! Super proud dad moment for sure! He made a great shot with my great grandfathers old 30-30 Winchester rifle and put the buck down where it stood. It was a long day but well worth it. He will be...

    Filled my first bear tag

    I was finally able to seal the deal on a California black bear. I've had my opportunities over the years but for one reason or another it just never worked out. On Monday my luck finally changed. I got off work early so my dad and I headed up the mountain in Fresno county. We headed to an area...

    2016 back pack hunt, success!

    We got it done in the back country this weekend! My good buddy was able to fill his first buck tag! I was glad to be there to share the moment with him and help him with the pack out. Hard work but well worth it. We packed in Friday evening, about 4 miles, to a spot that I've been wanting to...

    Sitka, Alaska 2015

    Went to Sitka again this year. The fishing wasn't as hot as years past and the weather was a little rough at times but we managed to get a few salmon and had blast doing it! The views alone make the trip worth it!

    URGENT!! More forests being closed! SNF

    The EPA and feds are pushing to close down 2 million acres of forest by reclassifying the Sierra National Forest to Sierra National Monument. This would be another nail in the coffin for hunters and any outdoor enthusiasts. Below is my post that I copy and pasted from my facebook page. "I...

    Back from my hunt.

    My buddy and I won a drawing put on by CDA for two free pig hunts at Tejon. It was an epic hunt! Top notch all around. I could write a novel about our experience but I'll keep it short. The hunt wasn't a slam dunk by any means and that's what I was hoping for. We had a full moon working against...

    D7 forky down

    I was able to connect on a nice forky yesterday. This is the first buck I've taken while hunting solo. It was a lot of work but it felt great getting it done on my own. To make a long story short, I hiked all morning up the mountain. I intended on getting to an old burn on top and post up for a...

    Alaska 2014

    I was fortunate enough to get an invite to Sitka again this year. We had another great trip. The first few days were a little slow but the last 2 days we slayed 'em. Last trip we only caught salmon but this year we got a good variety. I was able to catch my first halibut and lingcod. We also...

    D7 Spork down!

    I got off work early yesterday so a buddy and I headed up the mountain and were hunting by 4:30. After a few hours of slowly working an area, and not seeing anything, we decided to head back towards the road. We dropped down off a mountain and came to the edge of some timber and jumped...

    Slayed the salmon in Sitka

    Just got back from a 4 day fishing trip to Sitka, Alaska. I was lucky enough to get invited on an all expenses paid business trip. It far exceeded my expectations. The weather was beautiful and the salmon bite was on! We caught limits everyday and the guy that took us out said we got some of...
