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

Hey Buster, it was great seeing you.  I am looking forward to getting together, would love to visit and take a duck with the bow.  thanks for visiting the site.  Mike, I bet I could have used the skin from that snake to back all my bows, instead of collecting the little ones.

Enjoyed visting with you at FDIC this last week. You need to be making plans on coming to Arkansas to Bust-A-Duck this upcoming season with me. This board is a great idea. Be Safe, Buster

Hey Terry,

 I am in Texas hunting hogs, just took a break to visit my parents in Dallas.  Firefighter hunt is going well, lots of hogs down, hope you make it next year.  Let me know if you put in for Montana draw, I would love to hook up for antelope, watch to make sure you don't miss any draw dates.  Talk to you soon,

Kevin, Just a reminder... the Oklahoma Traditional Selfbow Jamboree (OJAM) is 17-21 March!  I'll have our scouts out there making bows and shooting some arrows... if you are in the neighborhood its a good time.  Been hard at work developing our lease and building an elevated blind.  Kevin Smith and I are talking about putting in for an Antelope draw in New Mexico.  Stay Safe Brother!

Hello Kevin, long time no see. Remember I am in need of a bear skin for my bear collection. : ) Happy to see you are still doing what you love.

Hey Beth, I will bring some, but I will try it first, you might not want it until I get it perfected, well, edible anyway.

Kevin - next thing you know you'll be tanning hides for "winter wear". Glad to see you are enjoying life to the fullest . Bring some of the jerky to FDIC. ;)

Hey everyone, how is the Fall season going? I put the bow down for a week and switched to the rifle, got my first elk, a cow, a mule deer, two whitetail does, and a nice whitetail buck. It has been the most cutting and butchering I have ever done! I bought a pressure cooker and will teach myself to do some canning. I also picked up a dehydrator and will learn to make some jerky.
