Danner Acadia | King of the Mountain

Danner Acadia | King of the Mountain

My experience with Danner boots began back in 2001 when the Acadia was the issued winter boot for all Rangers within the 75th Ranger Regiment.  It didn’t take long for anyone to figure out they were far superior to the green “Jungle Boots” in almost every application.  Since that time, I’ve toured the Danner factory as well as taken […]

Meal Kit Supply | Evolution of a Meal

Meal Kit Supply | Evolution of a Meal

Plenty of you reading this have served in the US Armed Forces and are all too familiar with the old MRE’s (meal, ready to eat).  Plenty more have run into them during disaster operations or when someone pulls one out of a bag when out camping.  The content of these sealed pouches has changed quite a bit […]

Danner Scorch 6" Hot Weather Boot | Quick Look

Danner Scorch 6″ Hot Weather Boot | Quick Look

It’s no secret that I enjoy using Danner boots, and it’s no surprise why.  In the toughest environments I’ve been in, Danner boots have held their own.  In heat over 110 degrees and while being ground against jagged rocks, my issued Acadia’s were totally dependable.  During a tour of the Danner factory in Portland, OR, […]

Bowhunting | Nockturnal Lighted Nocks

Bowhunting | Nockturnal Lighted Nocks

Of all the equipment a bow hunter utilizes, among the most overlooked items are nocks. A nock sits on the tail of an arrow and connects the arrow to the draw string. When you buy your arrows for bow hunting, there are standard nocks on the arrow (non-lighting). For most hunters, that is what they continue to use. But an […]

Mission Mercantile Bird Bag Trio and White Wing Label Game Belt

Whether out hunting small game or at your local trap range having a good game belt is always an important piece of gear for your shooting day.  A long day in the field with a full belt around your waste will bring up two important questions, how comfortable was it and will I wear it […]

Hunting Pigs: How to Attracting a Sounder of Swine

Hunting Pigs: How to Attract a Sounder of Swine

Oxford describes a herd of wild pigs, or swine, as a sounder. In fact, the name of a group of wild hogs has more to do with the age of the animals than the noises they make. A group of young pigs, or piglets, is often referred to as a drift, drove, or litter. A […]

Nature Blinds- Stalking Shield and HERO Advantage

Invisible Advantage: Nature Blinds’ Stalking Shield and HERO Advantage

The deer rut is synonymous with freezing weather, when the biggest limiting factor for some hunters is staying warm to remain in the field all day. Heated blinds are ideal for dealing with Mother Nature, but many are obtrusive in contrast to their surroundings. The Nature Blind Hero provides all the advantages a hunter needs […]

Hog Hunting: Finding and Feeding Pigs

When it comes to setting up a feeding site for hogs, you need to think like a pig no matter how weird it gets. If you were to set a hog trap in the middle of a field you might catch the odd pig, but it isn’t likely to be a mature, well-educated boar. If […]

Hunting Trophy Moose in Northern British Columbia

Hunting Trophy Moose in Northern British Columbia

Hunting is something that I have done for a long time. Growing up in Northern British Columbia (B.C.) I have been blessed to participate in many successful hunts. For 37 consecutive years, five more than I have been alive, my family has participated in a group moose hunt. Although not all of us cut a […]

Fresh water on the move with the Survivor Filter Squeeze Kit

Fresh water on the move with the Survivor Filter Squeeze Kit

The Survivor Filter is a great piece of gear for any outdoor adventure, vacation, or emergency preparedness kit.  Most people are surely familiar with popular water filter brands that are in a similar price range, but what I feel sets Survivor Filter apart from the rest is the ruggedness and durability of the product. The […]
