Caribou on the Anisak River
Last September I embarked on a float hunting adventure 150 miles north of Kotzebue, Alaska in the Brooks Range. After 3 days of floating in some of the most beautiful country imaginable seeing moose, grizzly & small groups of caribou, the entire migration seemed to come over the hill and a group of 70 caribou crossed the river right in front of our raft. We were definitely in the right place at the right time and feel fornutate to have captured a few photos.
First trip to the dark continent :)
We were out hunting blueballs,(vervet monkey) when one of them didnt fell down, took aim with the .375 ruger and shot down the entire branch with the monkey on it.
Part of the branch has a place on the wall in my trophy room :)
Big Blue Wildebeest with bow - South Africa
Cloudy cruddy day but got close to this bull anyway! The wildebeest was #1 on my list on my first trip to RSA - what a thrill!
432 SCI Rocky Mountain Elk
A great 6x7 Bull Elk scoring approximately 432 SCI. The bull was taken near the Canadian-Michigan border with a Steyr Model M 30.06 and 2.5x10x56 Schmidt & Bender Scope in September. After 2 days of glassing and stalking think forest and wetlands, the bull was spotted at about 200 yards and dropped with one round of 180 grain Winchester XP3. It was a massive bull weighing over 1100 pounds with extreme mass for a 6x7. At the time of entry into SCI Record Book, it ranked No. 9 in the world.
First Safari In Africa - 2010
My father always dreamed of going to Africa, and as a child I was well versed in the exploits of Selous, Bell, and Patterson and tales of adventure in the "tall grass" of Africa. Although my Dad never made the trip in his life-time, I made a vow to live this adventure for him, and this dream finally came true in the hills of Kwa Zulu Natal. After six days of hard hunting, the old Dugga Boy fell to a .375 H&H win Barnes 300 grain TXS bullets. He didn't go easy, eventually take 6 shots and two foiled ambushes on his part before he went down. It was a massice 42 inch bull and the trophy of a lifetime in a REAL dangerous game. Shortly after he met his end, two trophy wart hogs and a great Impala followed. It was a fantastic hunt and one which I hope to reexperience someday.
