Sacramento Mountain Outfitters Cloudcroft, NM

Sam shot this giant Idaho bull on his first ever elk hunt last week Sunday with Sacramento Mountain Outfitters in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. The bull was shot in unit 34 and while it hasn’t been scored yet, looks to be right around 300 inches. Sam was in the middle of about 60 head of elk that were all within 100 yards when he put his arrow right through the heart of this bull with a 30 yard shot.  Continue Reading

Under Armour Ridge Reaper Barren Series Camo

The Under Armour Ridge Reaper Barren Series Camo is a new pattern from UA that offers a disruptive camouflage design

Under Armour used to be the front runner for camouflage apparel for younger and “hipper” hunters. They produced the best fitting, coolest looking and most technologically advanced gear on the market. You could easily spend near $1,000 on a new set of gear, fully equipped from head to toe with the UA symbol. People didn’t mind spending that much either, because they knew they were getting the best stuff out there. At some point though, this all changed and the gear they produced wasn’t the coolest on the market anymore and didn’t offer the best patterns. They’re back in the game.  Continue Reading

Listen to hear these chilling coyote howls erupt in the woods. Continue Reading

The whitetail deer speared on video in this post shows a different way of hunting that can be done in certain states. Continue Reading

Helicopter Hog Hunting VIDEO

I’ve never done this, but I want to. For the record, I don’t believe in killing for no reason and I hope that these guys at least ate or donated the pork, but this really is a bad ass hunt. Wild hogs are an issue in many states, plain and simple. While hunters are here to manage populations, it’s tough with the reproductive success that these pigs have. Therefore, extreme hunts are available and the guys over at HeliHunter are some of the best. Click through to watch even more video of this hog hunt from a helicopter.  Continue Reading
