5 Things to do in the Offseason

5 Things to do in the Offseason

As I mentioned in a previous post, we are currently in the “offseason”, as it relates to hunting.  It is a busy time of year though, and spring hunts are already starting to ramp up.  Before we know it, it will be July, and the major western hunting seasons will be just around the corner. If you’re like me, and hunting is always on your mind, then I have 5 things you must do this offseason before the hunts arrive:…

Venison Street Tacos

Venison Street Tacos

Some of my favorite things in the world to eat are street tacos. There’s nothing better than stopping at a good food truck, and loading up on some authentic street tacos. That’s why today’s #FridayFavorites is my recipe for street tacos. A while back, I decided I wanted to try and make my own street tacos with venison. Now, these tacos can be made with venison, elk, beef, or really any other type of meat you want to try. Venison…

Wolves in Colorado

Wolves in Colorado

Today’s post is about something that is becoming quite controversial in the state of Colorado, and in the western United States for that matter.  That is the introduction of wolves into areas that don’t currently have them. I follow several hunting groups, people, and even politicians that are currently having discussions about the possibility of introducing wolves into Colorado.  There are many reasons this makes me nervous, I will discuss them shortly, but with the election of our new governor,…

E-Scouting Tools

E-Scouting Tools

One of the problems with using your phone during all of your hunts is you run out of battery quite quickly.  Luckily there are ways to charge your phone while out in the mountains.  Goal Zero offers a great solar charging system.  I use one that I attach to my backpack while I’m hiking.  Phone Skope and other brands also offer a battery bank that you charge before you head out for the day.  They’ll usually charge your phone 1…

Spring Turkey Tips

Spring Turkey Tips

Spring turkey hunting is in full swing, and social media is blowing up with pictures and stories of gobblers hitting the dirt.  I have turkey hunted many of times, but I’ve never been more excited to go turkey hunting than this year. I have a good friend here in Colorado whom I’ve been trying to get into hunting for some time now.  Justin is a great dude, and I think he is absolutely going to love it.  His brother-in-law is…

Phone Skope

Phone Skope

I’m excited to start #FridayFavorites with one, if not my most favorite piece of gear I pack with me.  As evident by the large picture above, that of course is the Phone Skope digiscoping phone case. Phone Skope has become much more than just a phone case, and I will touch on that later, but I’d like to begin this post by going back to where it all started. What is a Phone Skope? I’m sure most of my readers…

Estes Park, CO

Estes Park, CO

As a hunter, most of the time spent in the mountains is either scouting for animals or actually hunting the animals.  Very rarely do we put ourselves in a place where we see wildlife that we can’t hunt.  However, there are several places, similar to the places I just mentioned, that I believe are “must-see” places.  Some of those include Yellowstone National Park, Custer National Park, and Estes Park. Estes Park sits next to Rocky Mountain National Park just outside…

Shed Hunting

Shed Hunting

What is shed hunting? As hunters, we’re always looking for ways to be in the outdoors. During the fall, and later months of the year, we’re usually hunting an animal of some kind. However, in the spring, we have to be a little more creative. Especially the big game hunters. Luckily for us, the animals we chase in September and October shed their antlers every year. For someone that isn’t involved in the hunting world, this can be quite difficult…

2019 Colorado Hunting Updates

2019 Colorado Hunting Updates

It’s that time of year. Many of the big game application periods have either closed, are currently open, or they will be closing soon. This is honestly one of my favorite times of the year! I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading proclamation books, and doing the research needed to find those perfect hunts for me. It’s the time when I schedule out the remainder of my year. Like most hunters, my schedule revolves around the tags I get. This time…

Colorado Deer

Colorado Deer

Colorado Deer 3rd season deer hunting in Colorado is amazing. In 2018, I had the opportunity to hunt it for the first time in my life, and it didn’t disappoint. In 2015, I moved my family to the great state of Colorado. My career is what brought us this way, but we have grown to love the community, amenities, and most of all, the scenery. Colorado is a gorgeous place to live, and if you’re a hunter/outdoorsman, it is only…
