A veteran myself, supporting service members and veterans is very near and dear to my heart. I am just getting started here, but I have great hopes for what we can accomplish in the future.

A scrape made by a Doe is typically about 12 to 18 inches across. That doesn't mean they won't make a bigger scrape. Why Does make scrapes is not well…Continue
I sat in on a web conference today listening to a number of product merchants talking about the new hunting products that will be coming to market this year. I feel fortunate to have a job that allows me to see the new products and sometimes actually use or test these products before everyone else has the opportunity to do so. It is interesting to see how the manufacturers react to the market each year. …Continue
Beginning At The End
For me, every new season begins the day after the last season ends. Waiting until next season just isn't an option. I want to get started now. Where am I going to hunt or fish, what equipment will I use, who am I going to share that…Continue
