Really like your videos but we never got to see the Antelope you took with your bow and does Fire Engineering not let you show the shot?Continue

Opening Day 2013

Hey Mike, have not had bass in a while, sounds good.  Hunting has been slow, no luck with the antelope or elk this fall, took a whitetail doe, and a mulie buck.  Still have a few days for one last try at elk, but the weather got bad.  Went with a friend to a spot, almost got stuck, snow was deep, even with chains.  Hope the snow drives them down so I don' have to go so high.  Then it is off to Dallas, Thanksgiving with my parents, and a little whitetail hunting in Texas, maybe better luck down there.

Hey Kevin, Any luck Antelope hunting? Starting to get busy around here getting ready for the up coming Duck Season. Going to the cabin this weekend to rig decoys. Keep me informed on the Antelope.

Season is starting again!  Personally, I don't think it ever ends, there is always some hunting or fishing in season somewhere!  My wife Lucie and I got back from our first trip to Africa a few weeks ago, we had a great time!  Took five trophies with the bow, 1 Duiker, 1 Warthog, 2 Gemsbok, and 1 Eland.  Also spent some time in Etosha National Park, it was an incredible experience.  There was so much game and activity outside the hunting blinds, that it is hard now to go to Eastern Montana Antelope hunting, and spend all day in a small pop up blind, and after 5 or 6 days, maybe 1 will come in range, but not likely.  My wife thinks I should just take up golf until I can afford to hunt Africa again.

Hey Buster, nothing yet.  The winter was so cold, and more important for me it was long this year.  We had snow last week, just a dusting, but the mountains still have snow.  I went to Fish and Parks, spoke to the wildlife biologist, and he said they just are not moving this yet this year.  I have taken all of my bears over bait in Canada, this is my first year spot and stalk.  It is a great way to do my spring scouting for deer season, but not seeing any sign of bear yet, and I have been out 10 days in a row.  Tell your son I said congratulations!  Let me know if you ever think you could get up here to hunt, you are always welcome.

Hey Kevin, Have you got that bear yet? It has been very busy here in Arkansas with all the tornadoes and flooding. My son out did the old man this turkey season. I was never able to get one.
