Opening morning of the 2013 turkey season was a gorgeous day. It was as beautiful as May could be – the spring grass was freshly sprouted green, the ground was warm and dry, the sky was blue, temperatures climbed from the forties through the seventies as the day progressed – and I was at work. That’s when I decided to take the next day off and go hunting.

The Saiga 12 shotgun promises everything an anti-zombie warrior could hope for. It is made in Russia by actual Russians. It’s black. It accepts detachable drum magazines. There is no two hand pump or lever action cycling required. It is semi auto and delivers multi-shot 12 gauge devastation down range.

Colorado Elk Season 2012

 

Two friends and I set out this year to fill our first ever bull elk tags in Colorado. I've hunted elk in the past in other states, but this was our first time hunting second season outside of Durango, Colorado. {Story Spoiler!} We saw very few elk and no one harvested a bull. But learning the area and getting great exercise was everywhere we went.

Colorado Elk Season 2012

Recently, youth season opened up for deer. Even though my own son isn't old enough to take hunting, I still managed to get some time out and glass the bean fields for some whitetail. I found LOTS of bucks ranging from small to giant. So, there was a lot left to capitolize on for the opener.

After having to wait through nearly the entire summer just to be able to use a fire arm out of doors, Kansas was hit with a cold front, and although I nearly had to put on a parka to hold up to the frigid 88 degrees it was outside (as opposed to the 110 degrees we’ve had), I used this opportunity to my advantage and spent some range-time with so

Where is the best place to take a trophy bull elk? It’s the same question that is on the minds of every hunter hitting the elk country this year. Everyone has their honey hole, and their opinion of what state or location has the best and the biggest elk. If you check the record books, there are a few places that stand out time after time for producing some giant bulls.

The summer has started. With temperatures across the nation in the 80’s and higher, the cool breezes of fall are often forgotten amongst the summer vacations, baseball practices and time spent with the kids. Unfortunately, the busy activities of summer leaves many hunters unprepared for the fall season, whether it’s because they didn’t make the time they wanted to practice with their weapon, or if it’s because they missed the opportunity to plan their fall season.

The old saying is that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Well – there is more than one way to dress a turkey. Some folks just pull the breasts off and leave the rest of the bird for the coyotes, but that seems wasteful to me. When we roast a whole turkey whether it is a Butterball or wild bird, the breasts make the main course of at least one meal and most of the remaining meat gets used for turkey sandwiches the next day while the bones are stewed into stock for future use as turkey soup.
