Ross- laughin man! Honestly, I don't know that there is such a thing as packing too much teepee. Thanks Ross! Got a good chuckle there.

APPLICATION STRATEGY 2016: Kansas Deer - posted 3 years ago

Barry- Yes Kansas is not friendly to nonresident mule deer hunters. Access to quality ground is expensive on-top of the tag cost. Not the most friendly arrangement for a state that in general produces only a few really excellent bucks per year.

The 28 day grind bowhunting elk in Nevada - posted 3 years ago

Noah-

Nevada landowner elk vouchers range in price greatly. In the big scheme of things, there really aren't that many to begin with and pricing varies annually. Prices range anywhere from $8K to upwards of $15K. Dave Loescher wrote an interesting piece on the tag prices and application costs. You can view this article:

Great input there guys. Totally agree on the vehicle prep. Just as important as packing your bow or gun!

A look inside the hunters' library - posted 4 years ago

Matt-

Thank you for adding to the reading list! I haven't read that one and will definitely add it to my packing list for my fall hunts. I tried to cast a broad net with this list highlighting one historical text (Roosevelt), a more modern author (Rinella), classic conservation (Leopold), modern adventure (Krakauer), and a more modern text on a historical hunting figure (Lattimer).

Another one I really enjoyed was "Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone" by Martin Dugard. This one is available through iTunes in the audiobook format. I always find myself listening to it on the long drives that come with hunting season.

Thanks again Matt and good luck this fall!
