    So I went hunting for the first time yesterday. I tried to hunt Grouse off a gated logging road at the top of the pass on I 90. A couple of mistakes 1) I brought my dog who is not a bird dog . He got to far a head of me and flushed two birds off the gated road before I was able to get a clean...

    Like many of you, I've been a hunter since I was old enough to tote my own rifle. My Grandfather was an outdoorsman whom taught me to fish, hunt, hike, backpack, and take care of our outdoors and the critters that call those places home. I've always been a rifle hunter because that's what...

    From CNN: "Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke signed an order Friday morning aiming to expand access for hunters and fishers to public lands and monuments. In what is being described as an "expansive" secretarial order, Zinke's rule would ultimately allow broader access across the board...

    There are a few events coming up for kids to get them interested in the outdoors. I got to see last year's event in Wenatchee and it was a really neat opportunity for families/kids. Stations set up for kids included casting demos and practice, an archery range, an air rifle range, a .22 range...

    Looks like me and the family are Ak bound the end of June to Anchorage area. We have never been to Alaska and will only be there for 2 years. Looking for advice on where to go, and what rivers/ spots I shouldn't miss on our AK adventure. I fly fish for trout, searuns, and silvers, and gear fish...

    So I'm toying with the idea of getting into bow hunting this fall and I'm curious what you guys use/recommend for brush hunting on the wet side that keeps you dry but doesn't go swish swish every time you move. The gear Sitka makes looks great but man is it expensive. I wouldn't be opposed to...

    I received this from Kirk Pearson, Senator 39th District and have responded and wanted to share here. To me its seems that as increases are inevitable, these are a bit much for the return they promise. I personally would like a little more detail on where the money goes and how it is used...

    I have a Model 94 that was my grandfathers. It's in good shape, and I'd rather not have it drilled to mount a scope. Also gathering dust for many decades is a 1903 Springfield. The Springfield is missing a few bits, but the action and barrel seem to be in good shape. A month or so ago, I was...

  12. Fly Tying
    You might wonder why a thread on duck hunting is posted in the fly tying section. On a scouting trip earlier this week I noticed a colored up drake shoveler. Nice looking bird. If he flies by on Saturday I will have his hide. Every other shoveler I spotted was in eclipse coloration.

    I have never hunted grouse with my shotgun. I wonder how anyone does. When I was a teenager and young adult, I shot two grouse as I recall. One day on the drive to a hunting area I spotted a grouse sitting on a stump. I had a .22 revolver at the time, and I got out and popped it from the...

    So, story time. I apologize in advance for the length, but you'll understand at the end. I grew up in south Alabama around Mobile. The only person in my immediate family that hunted was my grandpa. I have fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table when I was 4-5 years old watching him...

    Today is national hunting and fishing day. In my youth this day was significant. The day our annual turkey shoot took place. A festive event that involved wide array of standard and out of the ordinary guideline shooting games.. all for a prize. Mostly meat, quite a few frozen turkeys and...
