Open Nepal Trekking

A chance to hunt in Nepal...

In this ecological awakening age hunting seems quite contradictory but Nepal has been a favored ground for hunters since 9th century. In the Himalayan Kingdom, controlled hunting is allowed with proper license and certain seasons of the year. Hunting license is issued by the Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation in Kathmandu and there are a few hunting outfitters who can make arrangements.

Deer Season is in Full Swing!

I have been listening alot lately...and in my ears are the words of many women who have been hunting, have just tagged their first buck, have taken their sons or daughters or grandchildren hunting and many other wonderful (and sometimes funny) stories.  I love the words I am hearing!!!!  these are women who are conservationists. They love the outdoors and want to share that appreciation with their legacy.  Hopefully, some of those women will post on this blog from time to time to share these stories.

Something to Think About

Yesterday while reading a well-known hunting magazine, I noticed it did not include any articles written by women. I also noticed there was not a single photograph of a woman in the entire magazine. Thinking surely I had to be mistaken, I looked through the magazine a second time.

Introducing … DamselFly Fisher


I've heard it said about skiing that if you’re not falling, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough. In my experience the same has been true about fly fishing.

Why Do You Hunt?

I’m sure that not everyone understands the hunting heritage and it’s place in tradition, but with around 90,000 or more deer hunters in a given year, plus another 10,000 or so who don’t hunt deer but pursue other game, it’s evident that hunting ranks right up there with Friday night high school football as a fall interest.

Think Safety before you pull the trigger...

Only a couple of weeks into the pheasant season, hunters in North Dakota have already exceeded last year’s total for accidents involving firearms and shooting for all hunting seasons combined.

Building the Mock Scrape

"Now that you've found the right area, let’s get specific. Where should you set up your "mock" scrape? "

Placement of Mock Scrapes Matters

"A hunter can’t randomly just go into any location and pick any tree with an overhanging branch, make a "mock" scrape and expect to have success. Targeting the right area is important if you wish to consistently draw responses. "

Patience in the Woods

Turkey Season!

"For years my wife, Stephanie has made fun of me. I can't imagine the number of times I have heard, why do you hunt turkeys?

She wasn't referring to me guiding turkey hunters, as she knows that is what I do. She was making fun of me because I hunt turkeys when I am not guiding anyone at all. She would say," Deer, bobcats, ducks, bear, or mountain lion I could understand, but, turkeys. There's no skill to it, there's no glory in it, and there is no risk of anything whatsoever.

Each and every time I would all but beg her to come with me and she would refuse. Finally this season, she agreed to go. As luck would have it the wind and rain set in; but I was determined to make this happen. The first evening the wind was blowing out of the southeast at about 35 mph with a heavy overcast. I knew where a gobbler was roosting and thought I knew exactly how he would approach his roost." ....

The Thrill of the First Hunt

"Taking a child hunting for their first time is a special rite of passage. It takes some planning so that everything goes off without a hitch. You want their very first experience to be a fond memory and not an emotional scar.  Preparation can and should begin early. Bring your budding outdoor enthusiast out in the woods while you are shed hunting, scouting for stand sites, checking trail camera was or even planting food plots. Make it fun, you’re enthusiasm and excitement will be contagious. Use this time together to talk about deer biology, tracks, what deer eat, when they move and what scrapes and rubs are. Kids are like sponges and they will soak up the knowledge quickly. Lead by example and practice what you preach. He respectful of nature and your child will follow suit." ...
