One Free Weekend

This May, I was presented with an unusual opportunity. At least, unusual for me. My wife's sister was getting married, and my wife was headed home for the week and she was taking our son! It was going to be like being a bachelor again.

Hunting With Friends
ndemiter

Kurt has been my friend since we were knee-high to a duck. We started out as toddlers, chasing crawfish and salamanders in the creeks and fishing and hunting once we were old enough. Kurt and I have been together for every major phase of our lives. Every stupid thing teenagers do, we did together.

No Hesitating

There are many things that might stand out on a hunt.  The scenic beauties of the area where you are hunting, the weather or the trophy that you took on the hunt are just a few of the things that come to mind. 
 
Sometimes, however, it is none of the above, but instead it is about the person with whom you are sharing the hunt.  Yes, this is a story about a turkey hunt, but it is more about my friend Lewis than how I took my first turkey.
 

Country Club Hunting

There is a little more to this story than just the hunt.  I need to share a little background about the spot that I call the "country club honey hole" and how it came about for me to hunt there.
 

One Arrow, Three Shot Shell, Two Turkeys

As I started writing this story, I realized that a lot of my hunting stories involve my friend Chris.  Never really thought about it, but I guess he and I do hunt together a lot.  This is a good thing.  Everyone should have a good hunting buddy with whom to share their hunting adventures.
 

Pre-Vegetarian Turkey Hunt

I have read about the parent-child hunts on BigGameHunt.net and they always bring a smile to my face.  There is something special about parent-child hunts.  Part of that “special” is that bring a family together to share the outdoors.  Not too many families do much together these days, let alone outdoor activities so it is good to see one generation passing the tradition of hunting down to the next.
 

First Buck With Bow
CVC

I have been bow hunting for whitetail deer since the early 90’s but just have never been able to close the deal.  Sometimes I missed and sometimes my arrow would fall off the rest or the deer would see me and spook; why I wasn’t able to close the deal varied, but it all had the same result – no deer.
 

Mike's First Rio

It started over twenty years ago when I first met my new hunting buddy. At the time it was just a guy coming into my bait shop every day buying worms and fishing supplies. Then one day we stated to talk about hunting Deer and Turkeys, that’s when I finally found out that Mike and I had more in common than I thought. Mike has always produced a 140 or 150 class deer every year since I’ve known him. He has also got many deer in the 160 range. You can always expect Mike to come up with a great turkey every year also.

Crazy Coyote

It was another day at the Taxidermist when my helper Curtis and I were doing some deer heads. As we were doing deer heads Curtis asked me about coyote hunting. I told him when it all works out it has got to be the funniest animal to hunt. In Kansas we can hunt coyote all year long so when we get bored we grab a bow or rifle and head to the woods looking for the great song dogs. Curtis was getting pretty excited hearing some of my stories of hunting the old dogs. Next thing you know I decided to shut down the shop and take Curtis hunting.

A while back I told you how I made my helper (Curtis) a coyote hunting freak. Well here is his first coyote hunt.
