Coues Deer Scouting

I woke up at 3am yesterday to lightning and clouds in the sky. I decided to go despite the weather and I was glad I did. After an almost 2 hour quad ride I got to the first point I wanted to glass from. I glassed for about 30 minutes and was only able to turn up one doe. The wind picked up so I decided to move to a different spot. I got to the next point and the wind had stopped. I immediately glassed up a couple of small bucks. Then around 8:30 I glassed up a nice buck all by himself. He has 5 points on his left and 3 on his right. He has nice main beams and looked to be around 14 inches wide. After watching the buck until he bedded I hiked back to the quad for the long ride back to my truck. I was about half way back to my truck when I looked up and saw a truck off the road. I got out my binoculars and could tell that the truck had rolled off the road. I drove up the road to where the truck was and could not believe what I saw. The truck was a newer Ford F350 and had rolled off the road. I quickly checked the truck for people or blood and saw neither. I hiked up the hill where the truck had rolled down and there was stuff everywhere. Fluids were leaking out of the truck and it smelled like it had just happened. I snapped a couple of pics before I headed back down the road. I drove about 1/4 mile before I ran into a guy and his son along with their dog. They were still shaking as they told me what had just happened. The dad had let his son and dog out and then drove down the road a little ways. He got out of the truck and the truck started rolling down the road before it turned and plunged down a steep hill and started to roll. I was relieved that everyone was ok. The guy said that the truck had been popping out of 4WD all morning and he thinks it popped out of gear when he stopped. We all loaded onto my quad and slowly road the 10 miles back to my truck. I wish I had a picture of the three people and a dog on my quad! We made it back to the truck and I drove them home. I finally made it home around 2pm. What wild day.

Youth Outdoors Unlimited Hunter Education Class

I took the family to a Hunter Education Class this weekend put on by Youth Outdoors Unlimited Inc.  The class was two days in the cool pines near Happy Jack, AZ.  My oldest son Parker and my wife Odette were signed up for the course.  My youngest son Paul and I participated but did not take the test.  We had a great time camping with friends and taking the class.  Parker and Odette did very well and received their hunter education cards and bonus point.  The guys at Youth Outdoors Unlimited Inc. put on a great camp and I highly recommend this class for kids who need to go through hunter education.  Youth Outdoors Unlimited Inc. does lots of juniors hunting camps.  They rely on donations to keep these camps going.  If you would like to make a donation you can email or check them out on Facebook at Youth Outdoors Unlimited Inc.  Special thanks to Bill Hill, Dewane Tabbot, Mark Morder, Woody Farnswoth, Larry Kindred and Larry Knip for putting on a great camp and taking the time to help promote hunting for our future generations.

Lindsay's Colorado River Rainbow

It was just another sunny day at the office until Lindsay's 6wt. Winston doubled over.  We actually doubled up when this fish hit, but luckily the other rainbow popped off.  After a few passes near the boat, we realized what was on our line and the boat got awfully quiet.  After a 10min fight, this  giant was showing some fatigue and the whole boat worked as a team to land it.  Lindsay's husband Jim netted it  and as he lifted the fish out of the water my net broke from the weight.  Thus the fish was named the "Netcracker".  This fish could not have been caught by a more enthusiastic, well minded, and deserving angler.  Even on days when the fish don't bite, Lindsay never says boo!  We taped the fish at 27", but I think we could've stretched another inch out of it.  Congratulations again Lindsay on the fish of a lifetime.

The "Netcracker"

Proud guide

Ecstatic angler

Released to fight another day.

2011 Bow Hunter Happening

I took my boys Parker and Paul up to the Bow Hunter Happening last weekend.  The event took place at Mormon Lake this year.  Mormon Lake was a great place for the shoot.  We got lots of rain on Saturday and some more on Sunday.  I was really impressed with the number of families shooting together.  I saw lots of old friends and it was really good catching up with everyone.  Special Thanks to the Arizona Bow Hunters Association and all its volunteers for putting on such a great event.

Deer Scouting

I had a free morning so I decided to brave the heat and go look for some bucks.  I managed to glass up a few before the heat got to bad.  When I got back to the truck the temperature was already 104 degrees!  Enjoy the video.
