Paddlefishing the Missouri River, Montana

Had a great time Uncle Bob, Jeff and Gonzer fishing for paddlefish on the Missouri River in the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. We started at the Fred Robinson Bridge and worked our way up the river many miles, stopping along the way to throw set lines and snag. I caught so many different species of fish (walleye, sauger, crappie, northerns, drums, goldeneye, catfish, carp, etc.) I didn’t think the river could be home to. The goal was to catch at least one paddlefish. “The Fish of 1000 Casts” they called it and I hooked one on cast 7… granted 500+ more casts and I didn’t catch a thing. So, after catching a roughly 45 lb male paddlefish I fulfilled my goal. 🙂


Chocolate Lab Dock Jump

I think Scud has a future in dock jumping if pheasant hunting doesn’t work out for him. 😉









Scud & Friends

Sleeping Chocolate Lab Puppy

New Pheasant Dog in the Family! – Scud

On January 2nd my uncle and I headed to the Great White North to pick up a new chocolate lab pup (born 11/15/2012).  He doesn’t know how good he’s got it, or maybe he does as he seems very smart. So please welcome Scud to the family! 🙂

1911, AR-15 & 300 yard Gongs

Kimber .45 cal & Glock 19 9mm

Had a good friend in town the other week and we decided to hit up the range (Deer Creek Shooting Range).  With the start of hunting season closing in there were many hunters out sighting in their riffles and getting their loads dialed in.

It was really great to hit the pistol pits then off to the 300 yard range to “tap” the gongs. 🙂

Rocky Mountain Front Tree Planting – Valier, MT

Valier, MT Farm

This past April we planted about 500 Russian Olive trees. It was a grueling 2 days of work! Lots of sun, trees, digging & watering.  Hopefully the trees will root well and make it. Give it 10+ years and the pheasants should have some great additional habitat.

Big thanks to Krist & Ron for helping us!

Spawn of Duke :)

My father-in-law and I went hunting at the Rooster Ridge Pheasant Club with Duke & Scout the other weekend. Duke is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and Scout is his and Tish’s (German Wirehair) puppy. Scout is turning out to be one heck of a retriever, especially for only being 14 weeks old!

Wind Rivers, Wyoming Pack Trip 2011

Here are a few photos from the Wind Rivers Range pack trip I went on with my father-in-law, George Bingham and two of his good friends, Dan Harper & Don Barth.  We took horses into the Bridger-Teton National Forest/Wilderness (Wyoming) about 15 miles and camped at Lost Lake for a few days.  We did a bunch of fishing and some hiking.
