Boone & Crockett Big Game Awards

  I attended the Boone & Crockett Big Game Awards in Springfield, Missouri this past weekend. What a great time. Much smaller than SCI but all of the invited trophies were on display at the BassPro Shop. Was incredible to see. This is a huge BassPro that also features an NRA Firearms Museum and the […]

One for the books

My big blacktail from August we called The Lightning Four is starting to get officially recognized by several of the record keeping organizations. He is officially the new number 2 typical Columbia Blacktail taken by bow for Safari Club International. They scored him at 154 3/8 ranking him 23rd overall. Here is the display from […]

The Lightning Four

Incredible time this year on my annual August bow hunt up in Humboldt County, CA. Hunting for my tenth year with Dylan Carr of Diamond C Outfitters. We had lots of trail cam pics with lots of great bucks on the watch list this year. I was focused on a very old buck nicknamed ‘brisket’ […]

Diamond C Outfitters

The long awaited Diamond C Outfitters promo video is finally done! Set to ‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC, it is pretty fast paced encapsulation of what looks like ten years of hunting seasons. Several of my deer shots are recorded including my 2007 3×4 shot prone in the upper ranch. Also both my 2009 bucks, Twin Towers […]

Fair Chase

Browsing my latest edition of Fair Chase the Boone & Crockett Club quarterly magazine I checked to see if my bucks from last year were finally listed in the back. Not only were they both finally listed but they included a picture of my November 5×4 buck. What a great surprise!

It’s Official!

Received confirmations from the Boone & Crockett Club that my big typical and non-typical Blacktail bucks from last year have been officially accepted. The Typical making the all time record book at 137 2/8 and the non-typical qualifying for the awards book 2010-2012 with his 127 2/8 net typical score. They will both be listed […]

Book Buck!

I was finally able to get my November 5×4 officially scored for Boone & Crockett and he makes the all time record book with a net score of 137 2/8″ So happy to hear that he makes the all time record book even with his fifth point that is deducted from the net score! I […]

November Blacktail Hunt

Friday November 12 – Arrived at the ranch around lunchtime and after getting unpacked Dylan and I head out. The first buck we see just within the tree line is a pretty good buck with a broken main beam. He’s also missing an eye on the other side. Looks like he’s gotten the worst of […]

California Dream Season

November 14th I was back up in Humboldt county and took a huge typical blacktail buck. He green scores 138 3/8″ and he just might make the all time record book. Following up on my huge non-typical back in August this has been an incredible season for me. I hope to combine the two stories […]

Boone & Crockett Trophy Watch

Was very pleased to see my Blacktail buck featured on the Boone & Crockett web site Trophy Watch section. The oldest conservation organization in America founded in 1887 by one of my heroes Theodore Roosevelt. Taking an animal that they would even consider featuring here is an incredible privilege and honor. The buck I took […]
