I support the following organizations and their continued conservation and education efforts. I hope you will too.


I thank God everyday for being born in this great country of ours. I love Texas. But no matter where I go, the outdoors means the same. This site helps me share my love of the outdoors. I hope it is enjoyed by those who come across it.

2012/13 Deer Season Stories

Big 8
The 2013-2014 season is in full swing. My daughter Olivia has already put meat in the fridge with a doe on opening weekend. So in my view the season is already a success. But I can still chat about last season. So click the link above to read more!

Treestand Safety

treestand safety

Hunters are taking to the woods and safety should be on their minds just as much as deer are. Check out my treestand safety page. Being a volunteer instructor for hunter education I like covering this topic. Sadly, I always come across someone who has (or knows someone who has) fallen from a treestand. Check out my link for some thoughts on putting safety first.

Treestand Safety

I figured it was about time to make a page on feral hogs. The prevalence of these pesky, destructive creatures as well as the rise in interest in hunting them is astounding. I am by no means an expert on the topic but I am passing on information that I do know as well as providing links for more information.

Chicken Fingers

This story is about the very first animal I took with my bow and the day it happened. The day was meant to happen the way it did and it will never be duplicated again. A unique turn of events produced great memories for myself and my two youngest children.

DIY Box Blind

Having never built a blind before and finding little help on the internet, I wasn't sure how it would turn out. If it went well, I would have something my kids and I could hunt from. If not, I would have a new outhouse to live in after my wife found out I wasted the money. Check out the steps I took to build a box blind and see if you too can build one. And I won't charge you. By the way, my youngest daughter killed her first deer from this blind in the 2009-10 season

My Cancer

For most of the past 30 years I have been loyal to a certain brand of smokeless tobacco. When I started in the ninth grade, there were no rules on ages for buying it. I even won a trip to the Daytona 500 from the parent company in 1989. In September of 2005 I was diagnosed with cancer. Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It resided on the inside of my right cheek. In hopes of reaching out to those who dip, I like to share my story with all who will listen.
