Last Tag Filled!!

Z Buck

We took this season down to the wire! Heading into the last weekend with a tag is always tough.

Archery Blacktail

Zac Forked Horn Pass 2

It worked out perfectly for Alex to kill his muzzle-loader buck the day before archery season opened.

More Velvet Bulls/Bear


We got a chance this week to check our velvet bull camera. Not as much action this time but still some nice bulls that we are hoping will stick around for August 30th! For some reason this camera started giving us blurry pictures of the horns… not like the horns are that important to see… […]
