I'm 28 and just had my first hunt with my dad! He hunted and trapped growing up but over the years, he just quit going--therefore, I did not grow up hunting but always had to desire to. Thanks to my now husband for providing the opportunity for me to start, I've now been hunting for the last five years. This season marked the first chance I've had to get out in the field with my dad. He came to Nebraska to help my husband and I get things finished up before our son's arrival,
When I first started hunting about 13 years ago, my hunting attire consisted of bulky men’s camo over a couple pairs of long johns as base layers, depending on the weather. Needless to say, that system just didn’t work for me and I was happy to see that soon women’s hunting apparel companies started to appear, like SHE Outdoor Apparel and Prois. But one thing was still lacking for me: good quality women’s base layers. Base layers are crucial when the temperatures really start
When I look back on, "my best years," they're the years where I accomplished the most, the years I learned, the years I grew, and the years I felt things that set my heart and soul on fire. At 21 years young, the only things I had really harvested were whitetail, turkeys, and a pronghorn, which is more than some people can say, but the year I turned twenty-two, would prove to be my golden year as a hunter.

After the awesome results my lab, Sage, had with Alpha Dog’s “Vitality,” I decided I would try another product. This time, we chose “Free Range.” One word: Wow. I am blown away by these products. Free Range is a powdered supplement that promotes joint support, paw health and it’s also an anti-inflammatory. Because our hunting dogs are so hard on their bodies in the field, and even when training, it’s imperative for us to give them the best nutrition so that their joints maint
For waterfowl hunters, some have already the opportunity to bring home ducks. States like Nebraska, Illinois, and Mississippi have early teal seasons. These hunters are hopefully a step ahead in re-stocking the freezer from last year. Others will have to wait till regular season opens. Regardless of when you can hunt, a recipe will be needed for teal that is brought home. Teal kabobs are easy, quick and tasty! It’s the perfect meal to share with friends. Keep in mind, this re
These could also mean you’re a little too excited, border line obsessed- maybe? Hey, I’m not here to judge, just shedding some light on the topic. 1) The group texts have started. The gang is getting everyone pumped up by sending photos of the birds in their area, talking new gear, you name it it’s in there and it’s getting everyone’s blood flowing. 2) Spring and summer time, are often times of lawn maintenance. Those tree and shrub trimmings are now stacked in a pile at the
As an avid waterfowl hunter, the importance of having a warm but functional jacket is a priority. While waterfowl hunting, a good portion of the time you are in a blind of some sort. Whether that be a blind where you are sitting up or laying down, there is a lot of movement that is required and you don’t want your gear getting in the way when it’s time to sit up, pop up in the blind and shoot. I was having a constant battle of trying to stay warm during the subzero wind chill
