The Sit and Wait Buck

October 3, 2015

90% of the bow hunting I do is spot and stalk style hunting. I absolutely love the challenge in spotting a buck 500 to 1000 yards away and methodically putting a game plan together to cut that utterly long distance and get myself within …



Mallard Warriors!

August 28, 2015

Success on Road Three!

August 21, 2015

Funky Nests in Funky Places!

May 1, 2015

I feel horrible that I haven’t been hitting my goal of a post a week on this blog:/ but the good news is that I am busy. Nest searches and field scouting have taken up a lot of my time lately and I won’t …



Not Your Ordinary Egg Hunt!

April 4, 2015

I have been on staff now with California Waterfowl for just shy of a year. That means I have had the last 10 months to prepare for my first ever nesting season! Lots has gone on in that time frame for sure. Lots of …
