Why You Should Be Combining Digiscoping with Journaling

I love old hunting logs and journals. Like hunting photos, there is an interesting authentic quality to them. They put you in that place; that day, that outdoor space. I can’t help but wonder what Theodore Roosevelt, Fred Bear, or my grandfathers would think about today’s digital versions of hunting and the outdoor experience. In a world of crystal-clear digital channels … Read More

Catch And Release Hunting

I remember it like it was yesterday. We had gone to this spot for years to watch the bulls gather their cows and listen to them bugle. We drove to the edge of the trees, just outside the recede. There was this little group of trees that sat in the middle of the recede. That was the best seat for … Read More
