  1. 7 Days in Eastern Cape South Africa

    My dad Floyd and my stepmother Janice had been to South Africa twice, and upon their return the second time in 2014 they said they were going back again in 2016. I had always thought that when my dad started going to Africa, it would be very special for me to join him on an African safari. So I told him that I definitely would be going with him and my stepmother in 2016. The toughest part about going was convincing my darling wife Sonja that I needed to go because not many people get a...
  2. Mooning Coyotes on the Nightshift

    “Mooning” Coyotes on the Nightshift By Eric Ketterer My hunting partner, Tom Haas, and I had been waiting all year (as we do every year) for an opportunity to night hunt coyotes by a full moon in the winter. To do so usually requires a cloudless sky and little or no wind and, of course, a full moon or near to it. And for those who do not hunt in the state of North Dakota, the odds of that happening on the same day are slightly worse than winning the Mega millions lottery or taking a selfie...
  3. November 2016 Tajikistan Hunt

    November 2016 Tajikistan Hunt By Dr. Bob Peterson After I was able to successfully complete my Grand Slam of North American sheep, going on a Marco Polo sheep hunt became a top priority on my bucket list. Once I determined that I could afford to do this, the next priority was to research outfitters. The Internet is full of stories about people who went on these hunts and did not get the sheep they shot. After reviewing many advertisements of different outfitters, I called Dennis Campbell...
  4. Alaska: the Last Elk Frontier

    Alaska: the Last Elk Frontier By Remi Warren ©Elk Hunter Magazine Chasing Roosevelt Elk in BIG bear country My brother laughed with jubilation and relief as he popped the top off an Alaskan Amber. This was no ordinary beer; it was his celebration beer. "Want one?" he asked. I didn’t. My whole body ached, but when would we ever have this chance again? I looked past the fire we built and past our bear fence, into the dark, and took a sip. It was good. We sat in silence, enjoying that moment...
  5. September's Sabbatical

    September's Sabbatical By Les Voth ‘Lopes, speed goats, bears, buffalo, deer and prairie dogs, Wyoming's got them all. Ron Skinner, his grandson, Terrel (my son) and I went on a budget antelope hunt in Wyoming this September. There was some adventure, a little work, the hunters bled, and meat was collected. Ron and the boys enjoying the shade of the creek-bed at lunch. Overall we travelled just over 2200 miles in Ron's shiny white Chevy 4X4 short-box extended cab pickup, with the tonneau...
  6. My 8,000 Foot Wyoming Black Bear

    My 8,000 Foot Wyoming Black Bear By Len Backus As soon as the big boar turned slightly to his right the 180 grain Berger bullet was on its way along the 574 yard arcing route across the steep canyon. Hit hard, the bear buckled, spun, and then sprinted downhill about 50 yards toward us and then to its left, finally collapsing on the ground. Through my 25 power Nightforce ATACR rifle scope I watched his head move ever so slightly waiting to see if he'd need a second shot. Soon there was no...
