Location: Osage County, MO
Tools of the Trade: Bowtech Experience with a Rage Broadhead
Story: It was raining so got into my stand about 15 minutes after first light when the rain started to calm. After about 20 minutes a fork chased a doe up the hill, and about twenty minutes later this guy came chasing the fork away. I had to pick my lane quick and get set so I guesstimated the yardage, turns out I was wrong and missed high! He ran about ten yards and stopped I was able to get another arrow knocked and shot him at 35 yds. With the rain I was concerned the blood trail would wash out so I tracked him pretty early after the shot, wound up bumping him and then laid off. Got some guys together a handful of hours later, did a grid search and to make a long story short wound up recovering him.
Location: Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Tools of the Trade: Silver and Blue Spoon
Story: My wife, Britt, and I were in Play Del Carman for a week-long vacation with our friends the Younce’s. Britt and I broke out of the resort one day and went on a chartered deep sea fishing trip. We were fishing for bonita, barracuda, amberjack, and several species of tuna. After 3 and half hours of fishing and losing two other monster fish that we never had the opportunity to identify we finally hooked this behemoth 60lb Amberjack. It took me almost 45 minutes to get him to the surface. I have never been so exhausted in my life from fishing but the reward has never been so great. We gave half of the fish away to our charter captain and his deck hand. That night we brought the remaining half of the amberjack back to the resort and the chef on staff at one of their restaurants cooked up an appetizer and four entrees for dinner. The Younce’s and us dined like kings of the sea. We loved our fishing expedition so much that we are hooked on deep sea fishing.

Story: After a successful day fishing the Baptist Camp stretch of the current river access we decided to call it a day and return to St. Louis. We arrived at the car but decided to fish for 15 more minutes up towards tail-end of Tan Vat. The water was crystal clear with a large fallen tree in the middle of the current- things look very fishy. This beauty was caught right under the log dead drifting a salmon egg under the tree.
