Asian Water Buffalo Double!
Maybe it's the incredible Asian water buffalo hunting that is helping me recover slowly but surely from my illness over here in Australia.
I took a great big, nasty, mud-covered bull with a 65-yard shot, wide open for video, and hit the buffalo right t
Charging Banteng and Wild Boar
Don’t know what kind of bug I’ve caught here, but I’m really sick. Sicker than a dog … it’s a nasty one. But we still have been going out hunting!
We’re up here on the Cobourg Peninsula in the Northern Territories, the very most northern part of Austra
Adventures in Australia, New Zealand!
Hello all from halfway around the world … Louise and I landed in Brisbane, Australia back on June 13 and then had to drive on the wrong side of the road for forever to go to visit our daughter Eva who is going to university here. We visited for three days
Talk from Atop the Soapbox!
Hunting as an industry, as a tradition and as a family oriented pastime is healthy both literally and figuratively and it’s becoming more acceptable every day. “Extremist” views are less tolerated now than during the 1990s, for obvious reasons, and in my
Bear Report — May 2 ... Shockey Strikes!
We did it … father-son bear hunting team Nathan and Mike Barnes of South Dakota both took huge bears, and, equally importantly, I redeemed myself as a guide after a slow start!
Nahan Barnes is 23 years old and was hunting with his father Mike. We had a
Bear Report — April 27 ... Biggest Bear Yet!
Even though my guiding skills might be a little rusty, it's not stopping the rest of the guides from leading our clients to big Vancouver Island black bears. Yesterday, Freddy Lackie, my head guide and right hand man in the hunting camps guided 48-year-ol
Big Bear Report — April 26
Despite the pouring rain here on the north end of Vancouver Island, we're having excellent bear hunting ... well, most of us are. Yours Truly, is getting the short end of the stick, even though I've tried to pull rank on the rest of the guides to steal in

Good news! Just had the animals that I took on the October 2006, safari to Tanzania scored officially by an SCI Master Measurer. The big 44 1/8-inch-wide Cape buffalo scored 122 4/8 SCI, that’s almost 4 inches bigger than the old muzzleloader world record
80-Inch Yukon Moose Appears!
Great news! For years I’ve been hearing about an 80-inch plus moose that was found dead in a river in my Yukon, Rogue River outfitting area. Rumor had it that the moose was in the possession of the Fish and Wildlife officials, but they always said no. Now
Cameroon Update 4/02 ... With Pictures!
March 31 ... We had to go get two baboons today for some local king who wanted them for a barbeque! Apparently they're a delicacy here, so we had to go get these two Western baboons for him. While we were doing that, Guav told me that one of his friends g
Safari Sickness Strikes!
Don’t mean to whine, but holy moly am I ever sick!! Must have caught something on the airplane coming back from Africa and can’t shake it. Hope it’s not some weird African disease, but whatever it is, it’s definitely doctor time. Can’t afford to let it ge
