  1. ...that I present to you a picture that I took on Saturday evening. Lots of time and effort went into this, but Ryan made good on the shot this button buck offered him at 9 yards. The deer went 50 yards and dropped in sight. We literally jumped for joy, hugged, high fived, and shook hands. It was a big day for my ten year old boy, and for his dad too!

    Classy Gesture

    Guys, I posted about my dad passing away and truly appreciate all the kind words. Today we had the funeral and before the service my sister asked me if I knew who the flowers were from that said, "from your friends at HSO". I was floored. I've never personally met one person on this page unless I happened to know them before. My wife and kids kiddingly mock me all the time about being on this page very frequently. My daughter calls it my "blog page". I've told her it's not a blog and finally have relented and call it whatever they want to. When I showed them the flowers they couldn't b

    Tagged out!

    Last Wednesday my brother took Ryan out to hunt by our house. Ryan ended up shooting this five point buck at a whopping distance of 1 yard. He was in a ground blind in the deer was almost touching the outside edge of the ground blind when he shot it. His broadhead went right through its heart. Ryan was tagged out in Minnesota. I then took Ryan to North Dakota on Saturday. He passed up three smaller bucks and then shot this 8 point buck later in the evening. To say he is on cloud nine right now would be an understatement! Me too!

    This is the bird I called in for my buddy this morning. He saw the decoy at 80 yards and hung up. It took at least twenty minutes of soft clucks and purrs to close to thirty yards where he made the shot. i understood why he was so wary when I saw those spurs. 1.25"each side and really sharp and hooked. true limb hanger.

    After 6 years of trying to get a buck my best hunting buddy got one this morning. He was hot after a doe and she dropped him in his tracks. It was awesome.

  9. Well it all came together last night in the oddest of ways. I go to my money spot for a South wind only to find 3 deer bedded under my stand, they run into swamp bedding area and I can here more deer get up and running, splashing through water etc. So I decide that spot is ruined. I run to the truck and go to another spot about 1.5 miles north. I haven't hunted this particular set this year. Get in and there are trails and rubs around tree. Not long her comes a doe but she's going to skirt me at about 34 yards. Trying to decide if I should shoot her or not. Decide to wait in hopes

  12. My son Dean took his first bear this past Sunday (9/13) and it was no average bear!! We had one bait station that was getting hit regularly by 2 bears, one being close to 2 hundred pounds and the other just a bit larger. These bears were coming in during daylight on a pretty regular basis,,,,,,,,,,, till the acorns started to drop. The bait was only being visited every few days and then only once in the last week. The regular visits had stopped and hopes of getting one of the average bears was not looking good. We were freshening the bait daily since season started but the bait was being hit l

  14. Had my adopted son Tony and his girlfriend over yesterday. Made some of my twice baked potatoes and a prime rib roast. Pulled the rib roast out at 135. Was going to pull it at 130 but got distracted by conversation. Made the au jus and sliced the roast and put it in the au jus right away. Very tender was said by all. The twice baked potatoes is the same as the recipe posted on my page in the Recipe page. Scooped out the baked potatoes and put sour cream, butter, cheddar cheese, green onions and milk and mixed until smooth [salt and pepper also]. Then scooped it back into the potato she

  15. Holy cow - literally! This turned out WAY better than I expected, given that before September last year, I really hadn't smoked a thing in my life besides maybe a rack of ribs on my gas grill. Here's the grand reveal. Thanks Reinhard, as always, for your wisdom. Followed mostly the procedure on your page. when my 8-year old says "Dad, this is WAY better than Arby's!" I did something right! Out of the smoker and into the foil to rest a while. As soon as I cut that first slice, I knew it was going to be awesome! Getting' happy in the juice!

    Decide to take the day off and hunt. Quarter past noon this guy comes walking out at the end of the clearing. 300 yards. I knew it was a buck, but was just concentrating on making the shot. Went about 40 yards. Oh boy did I get excited when I walked up to him. 13 points. Think l am still shaking.

  17. Heard about a comet visiting our night skies and decided to take a shot at it. Set the alarm for 3:00 am (obscene) got gas and headed out to some high ground thinking it wouldn't be up yet. I read it was supposed to rise about an hour before sunrise. It was already fairly high in the sky. Got a few shots before the sun bleached it out. I am looking forward to another clear night to give it another go. I have spots with better foreground ideas. The way our society behaves these days, I liked the "Keep Out" sign.

    Got back from NM on Sunday. We had a great trip. Never found any truly huge ones but saw some pretty good ones that would make me more than smile. We were going to hunt for 7 days and on day 4 I shot a little guy that gave me too easy of an opportunity to pass up. The morning of day 7 my buddy shot his bull. Both were called in with mine coming to cow calls and his coming to very aggressive bugling- my favorite! The two smallest bulls in New Mexico but we're happy!

  20. Thanks guys. Your kind words means alot to me and my family. This was definitely a place dad could go and start writing to help take his mind off of the numerous Doctor visits and the rounds of chemotherapy. He was a fighter and fought a long 2 1/2 year Battle with cancer but in the end the cancer took him away from us too soon. As I look threw his writings I see alot of fictional and non-fictional writings but alot was so relavent to what was going on in his everyday life. This was the world that he created. My dad was such a gifted author, I know he talked about writing a book on the waters

  21. This was the last morning my son and I could go out. We are glad we did. We took yesterday morning off as I needed to work and we were both dog tired from getting up at 4:00 Friday thru Monday. We had seen birds almost everyday but getting close was challenging. It seemed like the birds on this property really like to stay in the woods. So Monday when we left late morning I put the blind in the middle of the woods on a ridge top/pinch point where a couple mowed trails crossed. We heard birds in here both Saturday and Sunday morning and we could get in pretty quietly on the mowed trails. Kind o

  23. Check one off my 5 year old grandson's bucket list. Since last year when he was 4 he wanted to "go Walleye fishing in grandpa's big boat"! Set him up with a 6 foot ugly stick rod and reel, lindy rig and leech and told him to hold on with both hands! I never prayed so hard when he hooked it that he didn't lose it at the boat or grandpa miss netted it! I never helped him reel it in or anything because by the time I turned to get the net he had it cranked up to the boat!

    Myself and my 9yo on his first turkey hunt. He decided Wednesday he wanted to try turkey hunting. He has never showed much interest in hunting before. Needless to say I think he is hooked! Oh and he shot a bigger bird than I ever have. 25.6lbs 10 3/4 inch beard and 1 1/4 hooks.

    A deer hunting story.

    I woke up, startled, why was there light peeking in the windows?... I found my phone, muted, saying "press here to snooze"... Threw on my clothes, grabbed all my stuff and threw it into the car because I was going to go straight home after hunting, not coming back to the cabin. The wind forecast was out of the south, and I had a good spot in mind that is ideal for a south wind. Also very close to the car in a large area of public land. I had to be home by late morning, didn't want to shoot something a mile back that would take forever to drag out by myself, especially in the heat.

    Dad

    I was wondering why I was posting this here since my dad didn't cook a ton, but was renowned for his breakfasts mainly because he was a bacon expert. My dad passed away yesterday at 86 years old (third from right in photo). If you could die perfectly he surely did that. He got to whisper "I love you's" to his kids and grandkids and a little while later peacefully moved on to be with my mom. Good timing since their Anniversary is tomorrow, Sept 20. He was awesome. He discovered Nueske's bacon before it's time and discovered Thielen's bacon 20 years before it was in the NY Times. He made

  30. Friend Jeremy (Archery Sniper) and I spent a few days in the Black Hills near Sturgis this week and had a great time. He lucked into a big flock the first morning and ended up taking his first Merriam's. It took a couple days to learn some of their habits, along with a couple of "missed" opportunities before I was able able to put my tag on one. We even had time for a little sightseeing before we had to make the long drive home. All in all, it was a great adventure in some absolutely beautiful country.

  31. Can't believe I have to be the first to post pics! 2 weekends in the books and our group did fairly well. My sister shot an 8pt opening night, I shot this one Wednesday morning, and my dad shot a doe Friday night. Overall we have a lot of fawns around our place, which is encouraging for future populations. Hoping this winter is an easier one and most of them will make it through. I shot this buck at 9am out in a 4 year old clear cut. He was chasing a group of does that looked like it consisted of a 2.5yo, 1.5yo, and a fawn. Kind of weird to see the does all together with a buck c

  33. We took a family trip out to the Black Hills and saw some bighorn rams in the Badlands and a Mountain goat at Mt Rushmore. There was a group of 5 rams bedded along side the road just before sundown. I got a few pics before someone got too close and the rams got up and moved off. I returned at sunrise the next morning and two of the rams had returned and eventually bedded down where I could get a couple of shots with the Badlands in the background. Beautiful animals in a great background! Sundown shots: Sunrise shots:

    After 3 dreary, windy, cold frustrating days trying to get my dad a bird, this big jake finally walked in front of his gun this morning. That's 3 in the last 4 years. Not bad for a 93 year old. Thanks to a landowner who put us in position this morning. He's called the last two days and said we need to get over there. Watching birds from his deck every morning. Now I can start trying again to fill my archery tag.

    How about some pulled chicken. Here are some pics from my page on how I make pulled chicken. Good luck. I put my rub on the whole birds and cover them with bacon and tie the wings and legs. I put the rub under the skin, on top of the skin, and some on top of the bacon. Put them in the smoker at the top temp, 275 deg. Here are the birds when done. The bacon is nice and crisp. I let the birds rest under foil a bit to cool down for pulling. That bacon not only keeps the birds moist but I cut it up and put it right into the pul

In fact you gotta set aside 30 minutes just to manage all the Facebook messages you get (If you do the Facebook thing). Anyway, one thing to look forward to is the good eats. My wife picked up fresh donuts from the bakery this morning as I'm not a straight-up cake fan. She's gonna bake some fresh carmel rolls this weekend when we have some more time. Then I had a great lunch with my awesome coworkers at Pepito'

  43. We got to the tracks and soon two other trucks showed up. Five serious and hard-core mountain lion hunters filled those other two trucks! We got out and met them and thanked them for their key help in trying to help me get a cat. From 5:00 – 7:30 AM we waited, told stories, and “hung out with the guys”. It was great listening to these guys! When it came to lion hunting, there was a nice mix of experience levels, but all of them clearly knew a lot (and importantly a lot more than me) and were fun to hang out with. Here are a couple pics of the dog boxes that the pooches rode around in.

We allow kids to slug hunt our bowhunting spot and had a lot of deer on camera including some nice bucks. One of the pictures was of a buck we nicknamed Wide Boy - He was about a 250# 10 pointer with an inside spread of 20". Leading up to the hunt, she had her mind set on shooting Wide Boy. This was the first time Macy was going to hunt in a stand (double with Dad) and she was a little nervous. We got into the stand and I wrapped a camo net around it to allow for

Not because I doubted my abilities (well, not just that) but the old fridge that I chose for my vessel was in really rough shape. However, it was FREE! So I kept tinkering here and there and ended up persevering! I had wanted to do a project like this for a LONG time. Store bought smokers are nice, but I ultimately want to do my own venison processing so I wanted a larger capacity and I also wanted something I wouldn't feel bad modifying as I get more versed in cold-smoking and curing.
