2015 Bull Elk Hunt Part 1

It came and went without more than a handful of people knowing about it. To a vast world, it never existed. To most people, the thought of it will never entertain a moment of time in their minds. Yet for me, this time was one of the most exciting of my life and the memory…

2015 Antelope Adventures Part 2

  Continued from 2015 Antelope Adventures Part 1… Laden with Rolin’s first antelope buck, we steadily marched our way up and out of the corridor. We reached the top and scanned the deepest reaches of the looming sage prairie in search of a sign of the rest of our group. After loading the antelope into…

Part 2 of My First Elk

We got her to the logging road and loaded up. It was still early in the day and since the whole herd had poured off the back of the ridge, we decided to attempt to locate them again. Two bull tags were burning holes in the Mountain Man and Bill’s frozen pockets. The Mountain Man…

My First Elk

Chain up, it is about to get wild around here. The final weekend of the season and my last chance to fill my cow tag, proved to be one action packed epic adventure up on the Mountain again. That place never leaves you feeling lackluster or bored. Fourteen inches of fresh fluffy snow packed down…

Rags to Riches

This tale takes place on the weekend of the Beaver Moon. I had never heard about a Beaver Moon until Tristan and I were headed up the mountain and I looked out my window to see a most gorgeous view of the full moon. I commented on how beautiful it was and Tristan told me…

Ragged Raghorn

This epic weekend spent with the Mountain Man is logged into my life book as time well spent. It was opening weekend for elk on the mountain so naturally Tristan and I were on our way to elk camp on Friday night, armed with rifles, tags and excitement. There was a flurry of activity when…

Bannack High Country Antelope

Fast paced, action packed fun…that is what this long awaited antelope hunt turned out to be. For months, my husband, father and I were anticipating the adventure. Finally, the day arrived to set out in search of the prairie goat. We left our home at 3:00 AM in order to make the four hour drive. We wanted to get…

Mouse Tales

The stars finally aligned. All my ducks were in a row. The 2014 maiden hunt was about to commence. Seems like going out on a simple archery whitetail hunt should not be so difficult to prepare for. Difficult or not I had somehow managed to have milk in the fridge for the baby, Grandma in…

Puzzle Pieces

While writing my post on Jerry Miculek I decided to share my last whitetail hunting story with you even though I might be in for some criticism from those who don’t understand the extent of preparation and experience that went into it. To those of you who can appreciate and enjoy the sheer awesomeness that…

Experiencing Montana

It was spring when I met the man I am proud to call my husband. Our first ” Date ” ( not sure we actually called it that ) was a trip out to feed and sit over a bear bait in Idaho. We spent the evening laughing and joking. He taught me about lighting…
