The Good Old Days of Hunting

Every one of us, from time to time, reminisce about the days when we were young, had no responsibility and perhaps, a stronger sense of family. Rabbit hunting was a tradition for us for many years, every Sunday afternoon during the season. The community I lived in had church service morning, afternoon and evening and most everyone attended all day. The young bucks would take the afternoon off from church and hunt rabbit and squirrel for the dinner the women would prepare for us at church as serving 2 meals per day for the whole church can get rather expensive.

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.

Hog Hunting With Old Friends

My friendship with Brad began when we were both beginning college. It was in both our natures to have total wanderlust and travel the world and hunt everything that came across our paths. We met on an internet hunting website when the idea was still fledgling and we decided to get together and hunt some stuff.

Hunting With Friends

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.

When I was in college, I was a student in a program; a field course. It was an experimental type of class designed to see how students learned the sciences in field situations in an effort to make teaching more productive. As this program evolved over the years, it changed. It eventually became a class emphasizing on teaching a new type of lifestyle. By teaching these students about sustainable land use, conservation ethics and urban development, we could in fact; produce workers educated enough to deal with our modern day dilemmas.

Wyoming Antelope on a One Day Hunt

Having been out of high school and away from my hometown for quite some time, I was talking with a high school buddy of mine who was fascinated with my stories of hunting in my new home in Wyoming.

Spring Break Gator Hunt

After talking with a guy who had some available alligator tags, I hastily made my way from my college near Toledo, OH to Arcadia, FL. The drive was epic. I took my dad's Toyota Camry, and strapped my kayak to the top. It was a marathon of a drive, but after 20 some hours, I made it to Florida worn out and dizzy from the trip.

At 9:30am, I met Brad, my connection and guide, and we headed to the ranch we were going to hunt. Quite unexpectedly, the method of hunting was more spot and stalk than I had anticipated.

Turkey Time!
Marty Sup

I have been a big game hunter since I was 12 years old and then about 10 years ago I got introduced into waterfowl hunting and while that was a lot of fun and really passed the slow months in the winter after elk season was over. Nothing has come close to elk hunting except for when I went turkey hunting for the first time 5 years ago. When I went turkey hunting for the first time I was a bit overwhelmed at how hard the animal is to hunt.

Gone Deer Huntin! I Mean Squirrel!

It was setting up to be a great evening hunt in early October of 1997. This was only my second year of bow hunting so my anticipation was at an all time high each and every time I went out in hopes I would be getting that first kill with my bow. It was in the lower 40's, partly cloudy skies, and no wind. I arrived at my stand about 3pm and it looked like it was shaping up to be a good hunt.

My Son's 2010 10 Point

2010 was my son, Mitchell's 10th year of deer hunting. He has now shot 5 bucks, all with his bow and 8 doe. One of the doe was with a shotgun and the other 7 was with his bow. I would say 13 deer over a 10 year period isn't too bad since he started as a 13 year old. He took his first deer with his bow his first year. It was a doe. His second year he took a buck with his bow and a doe with his shotgun. That would be the last year we did any gun hunting. In 2004 he shot his biggest buck which was a nice 10 pointer.
