I'm out here for mature bucks, not inches...and I've always dreamed of shooting a really big 6. So when my cell cam sent me this photo from my stand this morning, I figured I would change gears and see if this buck showed up in person. Well, he was still here and before I could set my 400lbs of camera gear up, him and a doe stepped out about 3 times now. I think I may arrow him if he gives me a good shot. I love the rut!

Here's a closer pic of the Turkey Wing project that I did. I've gotten a lot of questions about if I glued the feathers on individually - no I didn't. This is from the turkey I recently hunted in the Kaibab and I cut off the wings, cleaned them, used Borax in several cycles to dry them out and then dried it in the shape that I wanted. The stones are a Blue Crazy Lace Agate and I also used some Copper beads and a few Jasper beads at the bottom for the hanging feathers. I'm now also working on a holiday wreath with the other wing feathers - not sure if I'll have time to get it done before I head to Oklahoma to deer hunt but I'm hoping to!

All the protein for our bellies! Heavy workouts in the evenings means a solid meaty dinner! 🤤
If I'm staring off in space today, no need to ask, im just thinking about elk backstrap. .

The best is when you don’t have a trail to follow and you pick your own. In my opinion that’s the only way to do it. And it’ll lead you to some of the best spots around 👌🏻 _____________________________________________________________ #flashbackfriday #stressfreezone #offgrid #godscountry #crispiboots #wheremyheartis #womenwhohunt #iamsportsman #putinthetime #soloexplorer #solohntr #inspiredwild #wilderness #keeppushing #mountains #fueledbynature #publiclandowner #livetohunt #whatgetsyououtdoors #hunter #backcountry #builtforthewild #elk101 #wapiti #backcountryhunting #pushtothelimit #staymotivated #idoitalone #sitkasubalpine #alpineviews

#frustrationfriday We have all been there, hunting hard, not much gas left in the tank, close calls but no punched tags, aches and pains, the mental game starts getting the best of you. @tatehale will remember this picture and echo those feelings I’m sure. A strong body and mind doesn’t guarantee success but it does prevent failure. There is no shortage of information available to train the body but how do YOU train your mind? .

😁The official BTR score is 192 7/8!!! What an incredible buck! Ricky Fretwell and the boys from Florida came down to get an official scorer on him last night. This buck, "Heartbreaker", is a public land phenom, and the number 1 buck we were chasing this season. Enjoying the hunt with new found friends from across the country, brought together from the shared passion of hunting whitetails, makes this story even more incredible! 🤘🏻🦌 We love it! Congratulations Ricky!!🎉

I hope everyone has a similar view of their own this weekend! There’s nothing like picking his head up for the first. I think the only thing better for me is the “walk up”. Who’s with me!?

For anyone interested in my ramblings, I recently joined my fellow Outdoor writer, bowhunter, elk slayer and long-time friend @elkshape (Dan Staton), for some great conversations about Bowhunting elk, chasing Mountain Bucks, God and life in general as a struggling bowhunter in today’s world. *
*
I’m no expert by any means, I’ve just been blessed that God has put certain people in my life that have helped and influenced me in ways I can’t describe. My hope is that someone, somewhere will take away that same thing after listening to this. 🏹

It sure was a cold and windy one this mornin! The deer weren’t moving so I decided to fill my turkey tag for Thanksgiving! 🦃 🍽 Check out the ice on her back!! 🥶 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In Oklahoma, you can shoot one bearded or non bearded turkey (hen) in the fall. This year I shot my first hen with my @mathewsinc Avail! ⁣

Thanking all the Veterans out there who have Sacrificed and continue to Sacrifice for our Country! We Truly Appreciate you! 🇺🇸 💙❤️

Gearing up for more whitetail action all week! Cold front hits early tomorrow! 💨 🙌🏻⁣

Last night I saw a nice 3.5 year old 8 Pt and another buck bump some does hard! This morning I saw a shooter buck about 200 yards off rutting in the woods. I rattled and nada. But still it was so awesome! It’s been pretty warm the past couple of days and with there still being some daylight action even these temps, I am very hopeful for the cold front to encourage the shooter bucks to come out in daylight.... and by my stand... lol

I’ve received a ton of questions and suggestions on what net to use while musky fishing. ⠀

The go pro, while on wide angle filming the action doesn’t quite do justice as to how big my net actually is. ⠀

Here’s a better, more accurate depiction of my @rangernets big game net, with my 49.25” musky chillin. ⠀

It’s imperative to have a net that’s big enough to allow these predators to comfortably hang out while you’re getting the camera ready, especially if you’re solo. Anything smaller is a huge disservice to the fish. ⠀
Also- please note the stability of my @hobiefishing Pro angler as the left gunnel is almost kissing St Clair

The rut is on and gun season is kicking off in most parts of the country! Congrats @kayc.2019 on this nice buck! Do you prefer gun hunting or bow hunting?
