Fishing for Turkey

Two for Two – South Concho

Some days, motivation decides to take it’s own course. One that may not be the path I originally chose. That’s what happened on Sunday. One day off a week, and I had plenty of work to get ...

Chasing the Run

I wanted to get away. I needed to get away. My buddy Kyle and I had talked about going fishing and camping a week earlier, but we weren’t sure if we could this particular weekend because of both...

The Last on the Line

I keep hearing the same thing over and over…”good riddance 2016″. Well, to be honest, i’m kinda with those folks on that one. It has been one of the toughest for me. Yet, at an...

Painted Canyon Video 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, I started looking back at all the great trips and adventures i’ve been able to go on this year. But there are so many unfinished video projects as well. It seems if it ...

Heat of the Hunt

When I think of hunting, it brings thoughts of sitting in a blind, in the miserable cold, hoping, praying you see something before you lose feeling in all your extremities. NOT sweating like a pig in ...

The Devil’s Video

For some reason, I didn’t take a ton of video on this trip. Very odd for me, but I think it’s because we were fishing and yakkin so much. And shooting video takes more time than just whipp...

The Devil Made Me Do It

Sometimes things just work out. Rare for me, but from time to time, it happens. Our annual Dude’s Trip had to be rescheduled to this past August, (which was an awesome trip), and so I figured th...

The final chapter in our adventure was finally here. We were heading back. The boomerang returns. Each day had been amazing, and this river threw everything it could at us…minus rain. (thank goo...

Dude’s Trip 2016 Part 3 – Painted Canyon

After a full day of paddling, running up rapids, and portaging the weir, we were finally at Painted Canyon. We parked our rides and walked up the steep inclines to get to the “mid” section...

Dude’s Trip 2016 Part 2 – Rapid Success

Our first night was a restless one with the temperatures still in the low nineties as we tried desperately to fall asleep. We stayed up later than we should have, but the excitement of the day kept ou...

Dude’s Trip 2016 Part 1

Our 4th Annual Dude’s Trip 2016 is officially in the books, and it’s back to real life now. Extremely busy real life. It’s taken me a while to get everything together, but finally ha...

Field of Wings

An amazing evening with my son and my buddy Kyle, dove hunting near Wall, Texas. This was my son’s first “official” dove hunt. I love to fish, I love to shoot, but times like these inspire me to...

Pic of the Day – Milky Way Over the Pecos

Every day I wish I was back on the Pecos River. All thoughts of modern life and struggles go away. No politics, no financial woes, no drama. She doesn’t care who you are or where you come from. ...

The Test Run

With a 5 day river trip coming up in a month down on the mighty Pecos River, we decided to get out and test out some gear and check the weight. We only brought what we are taking for paddling and camp...

Father’s Day 2016

First half of the day with the family, second half on the water. Just a short run to the river. It was hot, no wind, and only the little dudes came to play. But as i’ve said a thousand timesR...
