A great few days near Glenrock, WY with Scott and Angie Denny of Table Rock Outfitters! Our group all tagged out on the first day thanks to the plethora of opportunities on big antelope. My buck measured 16-1/8 inches, on its good side anyway. His right horn was busted off but he had some serious [...]

Some shots from this year's trip to South Dakota. We hunted the Aberdeen area, which is the best place in the state to hunt (estimates of 200+ birds per square mile). It was a combination hunt of public lands and a private-land hunt at Johannsen Farms Outfitters near Tolstoy, SD.
