Woods and Water

All weekend, I have been in Imlay City, Michigan at the Woods and Water Outdoor Weekend Expo. I was there for doing seminars and signing autographs for STIHL. My truck and boat were part of their display as well. It was a great outdoor event and crowds were estimated at over 20,000 for the three days.

Tomorrow, I head to New Mexico for an archery elk hunt for the High Places show. It has been years since I have drawn a good elk tag and I am really excited about this opportunity!

Blue Cat!

Forty pound blue catfish

I had the opportunity to travel to Evansville, Indiana to shoot my 13th and final 2011 episode of Stihl's Reel in the Outdoors. This time though, I was not chasing bass, but monster blue catfish with Captain Paul Willett of Camo Fish Guide Service. I was amazed by the various techniques he utilized to help us get a great show on a very tough day, where the temperatures topped 100 degrees and almost no current was flowing on the Ohio River. We capped the day with a true giant blue cat!

Deer Hunting in Kentucky

Over the past weekend, I hunted in Kentucky with Drop Tine Outfitters It was opening the opening weekend for Kentucky's archery whitetail season. Kentucky is one of the few states that opens early enough for you to take a buck in velvet.

Most deer shed their velvet from their antlers by the second week.of September. While the 100 degree temperatures made the hunting very tough, I did get to see something pretty cool at the farmhouse we were staying in. A beautiful big spider had made its web in the corner of the front porch. It almost did not look real its colors were so awesome! Anybody know what kind of spider this is?
