BlackFire Clamplight Review
One of the many uses for the BlackFire Clamplight is to fix cars or other devices while using two hands.
Flashlights are a dime a dozen and thank god because I tend to lose every last one of them. I put them in drawers, lose them in the woods and drop and break them. I’ve tried to make them stay in spots that they won’t fit and held them in my mouth while gutting deer and nothing has worked yet besides a headlamp. The BlackFire Clamplight changes things. This light clamps on to virtually anything and pumps out 100 lumens 0f LED brightness. You can buy one right here for only $19.99. Continue Reading

It is a once in a lifetime experience to shoot a giant buck and even more of one to shoot a state record. Wisconsin is home to some of the biggest bucks in the world and the records keep getting broken. This past week, the giant typical buck shot by Adam Hupf was declared the new Wisconsin state record typical buck for archery. It broke the previous record held by Dusty Gerrits of a buck shot in 2012. Pictured above are both men with the racks of their state record bucks, with Gerrits passing the torch if you will. These amazing deer were both shot by quality hunters and it’s great to see them with both of these monster Wisconsin bucks. Continue Reading

Early Ice Fishing in Wisconsin
Casey Witt managed to catch a few bluegills out on Lake Winnebago ice fishing.
Wisconsin lakes have been hit with plenty of early ice this year and the season is now well under way. Ice fishing is not my first love by any means, but it is growing on me. It’s also a good excuse to get out of the house and breathe some fresh air. The fresh panfish and walleye dinners are another great addition to these reasons. Continue Reading

Avex Highland Travel Mug Review
The Avex Highland Travel Mug is the perfect spill-proof, leak-proof hunting travel mug.
The first rule to having a fun, successful outdoor experience is stay safe. The second, make sure you have hot coffee. Hot coffee is a necessity. It gets you out of bed, keeps you alert and is one of the best ways to start your morning. If you don’t drink coffee while fishing, hunting or doing anything early in the morning, then you’re not a real outdoorsman. Just kidding, just kidding, but seriously, having a good coffee thermos that won’t leak so you smell like java and keeps your drink hot (or cold) for hours is really important to many outdoor lovers. Luckily, the Avex Highland Travel mug works like a charm and keeps your drink hot without leaking your drink so all the deer smell you. Get yours here. Continue Reading

The book, Tools for Survival, by James Rawles has some good information for outdoorsman.
I enjoy reading and with both of my buck tags filled for the year, I’ve had some extra time to do so. I’ll read anything. Fiction, non-fiction, hunting and any other subject matter, I just really enjoy it. Last week, I came across a post from Mark Kenyon of Wired to Hunt. He wrote about some of the best hunting books there are, which got me to thinking. I wanted to read something outdoor related and came across this book about survival: Tools for Survival by James Wesley, Rawles. Continue Reading
