Utah Public Land Elk Success

Blessed to put my tag on this stunning public land Utah Mt. Dutton bull. The team at High Top Outfitters could not have been more awesome. Their hard work and determination led me to this success. Thank you to my dad Lewis for traveling with me and sharing this hunt with me. To the hardest working crew of guys I have ever seen~ Jay Simon, Kelly Bingham, Brett Guymon, Chris Blad, Shane Williams, Chris Conner, Shawn Ellis, Marty Ellis, and Jeff. Thank you all for holding my ammo around those 340 bulls. This stud was worth the wait! He was tricky to get on and put the slip on me two days in a row but I was finally able to catch him in the open placing a single shot at 600 yards. He literally dropped in his tracks! An unbelievable ending to an epic hunt taking home my biggest bull ever at 360 inches!

Tech Tuesday- Buck Knives Open Season Series

The work begins, the minute you punch your tag and I used to feel overwhelmed when I had a bull on the ground. Field dressing was a task that I dreaded, it can be messy and time consuming causing your back to ache for days. For me, field dressing a big bull elk has become a much easier task as I have taken up the gutless method which is quick and really easy.

All this talk of field dressing leads me to this week’s Tech Tuesday blog. The selection of a high quality knife is of the utmost importance when taking on the task of field dressing a big game animal. In the past, I have used replaceable blade knives because it seemed like a good option to always have a sharp knife when you need it but there are drawbacks to that train of thought. First, the blades are often too sharp, causing you to cut accidental holes in capes, or yourself, and the blades are flimsy and break very easily. The last thing I want to do is reach inside the cavity of an animal to remove the heart and break off my knife blade inside which I have seen happen on numerous occasions. Not to mention the blades become expensive to replace.

Doing some experimentation with knives, I want to introduce you to the Buck Knives Open Season Series with a S30V blade. Why is the blade important? Well because the type of steel on a blade will dictate how long it will stay sharp.

The steel is the key to your knife staying sharp and the S30V is built to stay sharp. This year, I processed an entire bull elk without my knife dulling. I had no fear when reaching inside the body cavity to remove the heart of my knife blade snapping in half.

If you don’t know how to sharpen a Buck knife, simply send it in to Buck Knives and for a small fee they will gladly restore the edge. I also recently discovered the Buck Flip Stick. Weighing in at less than 2 ounces, you can take it anywhere for field expedient sharpening if it is needed.

The Open Season Series offers a caper, skinner, small game, and folding knife so that you can choose the knife that is right for your application. I chose the 3 ½” small fixed blade caper knife to carry with me afield this year. The beautiful handle is made of Rosewood Dymondwood and is small enough for me to easily control the knife, yet big enough to remove hind quarters on a bull elk. It even comes with a leather sheath that you can thread through your belt.

With a forever warranty, if you break your knife, send it in and they will repair or replace it. Forever. The series ranges in price from $125.00-$140.00 and is proudly made in the USA. Check them out at Cabelas.com.

 

 

Cabela's Colorado Elk Calling & Hunting Seminars

 

 

The sound of a bull elk bugle resonates through the heart and soul of the hunter that pursue him. It is a sound that once heard, can never be forgotten. A sound that compels the hunter to return to the woods in pursuit of the most majestic animal on the planet, year after year without abandon.

The elk speak to the hunter, telling a tale of what they are thinking, feeling and doing; the hunter but only has to listen and interpret the beautiful tale of the elk. The learning curve never ends, the elk are always teaching the hunter, sometimes the hunter gets the best of him and fills his or her tag, sometimes we walk away, lesson learned, memory made, cherishing the time pursuing him.

Lessons learned from elk are hard earned. The price is worn boot leather, sweat, blood and sometimes tears sacrificed from the efforts of the compelled in this blessed dance between man and beast. Sharing my experiences with the royal giants of the forest is an honor. Getting out into wild country in pursuit of elk is something that some folks have only dreamed about, sharing with them, lighting the fire within their heart, and blazing the torch of those who’s fire for elk already burn.

Cabela’s in Thornton and Lone Tree Colorado welcomed me, my stories and experiences on the mountain in pursuit of the bugling bulls into their stores for attendees to experience, listen and learn from my time spent afield. The language spoke, cow mews, chirps, estrous mews and cow bugles to the triumphant sound of the bull elk, location calls, display and challenge calls were all talked about and demonstrated with the use of my favorite Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls.

My hope was to help inform attendees with how those sounds made are all about the emotion of the elk and how to better interpret that emotion based on HOW those sounds are articulated.

The stalk and set up is what often brings a filled tag, so beyond the language of elk, I discussed common behaviors, traits and characteristics often experienced while afield from elk. The desire the elk have to lead with their nose, circling the hunter to the down-wind side and using that tendency to our advantage. The hang up or distance that they often feel safe in approaching, tactics on hunting elk solo and more.

Talking about elk hunting wouldn’t be complete without discussing the great gear that Cabela’s has to offer, so I did a little shopping, showcasing some of my new Kristy Titus Collection of solid sterling silver jewelry by Montana Silversmiths and some of my favorite gear from Swarovski Optik, Wilderness Athlete and Buck Knives along with handing out a complete gear list with item numbers for shopping Cabela’s online. My gear list may be found by clicking HERE.

Opening week of archery elk season is fast approaching and I wish all of the elk hunters out there the best of luck and memories made.

 

The Craig Family Camp- Ladies Instructional Shoot

She was beaming, her face lit up like a summer sunrise. “I did it,” she exclaimed while looking at her target with pride. It was the first time in her life that she had ever fired a rifle and much to her surprise, she hit the target exactly where she had lined up her crosshairs and pressed off the trigger, all ten rounds worth. Her apprehension at the bench was easy to see. Before she pressed off her first shot, I gave her a light touch to the shoulder and I told her that I knew she could do it, and she did.

That feeling of accomplishment that comes from hitting your mark, that feeling of empowerment that if you can learn to do this, you can learn to do anything. Having the ability and freedom to accomplish all of our hopes and dreams is exactly what this great country and the Craig Family Camp is about. The firearms gave these women a glimpse of more possibility on the horizon and a newly found confidence to work towards that possibility.

85 women attended the Craig Family Camp 1st Annual Women’s Instructional Shooting Day and 85 women went home with their lives being forever changed.  Some women had never shot or even touched a firearm in their life, while others had shot a rifle or shotgun but not a pistol. The camp provided the opportunity for women to shoot rifles, shotguns and pistols, all in a safe controlled environment with knowledgeable mentors and instructors.

 

 

The Craig Family Camp is a place where the outdoors and families come together. Many of the women that attended the camp arrived with the anticipation of a first hunting season, or they are taking a child on a hunt and wanted to be better prepared, while others came with the need to learn how to shoot in order to take greater responsibility of personal protection while in the home. The small town of Bloomington Indiana is filled with women that have a desire to become more involved with hunting, shooting sports and a desire to learn more about firearms.

The Craig Family is generous in heart, creating the camp that is free to attendees a place where friends and families have the opportunity to learn, grow and create memories. A place where traffic jams and email is replaced by campfires and hiking trails. A place to curl up next to the fire in the 5000 sq. ft. lodge with enveloped in conversation with a new friend.

The Craig Family wants all who walk upon this 100 acre wooded sanctuary to escape, grow, remember and pass on the lessons learned while here. An opportunity to encourage and empower others is what the camp is truly about.

A prayer was spoken before lunch was served, one that spoke of faith, family and friends, and the important things in life, the gift of time and knowledge. Glory to God for these gifts and as servants of the Lord, it is our responsibility to pass along the gifts that are given to us throughout life, to others creating a ripple effect that is felt by the world.

It is with many thanks that I give praise to the Craig Family for hosting such a tremendous community outreach and to the people within the community that generously donated their time, resources and knowledge. Beyond that, many left a lasting impression on our hearts from afar; Becky Layne from the Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) traveled from Wyoming to show us all the support of the WSF. Her presence alone was a great gift, but the WSF gave more than that, they donated to the event, helping to make the entire day possible. The Buck Knives family owned company generously donated hats and knives with a famous forever warranty in support of the educational event.

Montana Silversmiths made women feel especially beautiful with their unique western designed and inspired jewelry and buckles that they generously donated in support of the event.

It is only with the support of families like the Craig’s, volunteers and generous donors that events like this are possible. This is truly a grass roots effort to ensure the continuation of our time honored hunting, outdoors and shooting sports traditions.

I am already looking forward to the 2016 event. If you or your company would like to become involved with supporting the Craig Family Camp, please contact Greg Stube, Executive Director of the Craig Family Camp at greg@craigfamilycamp.org

Buck Knives Factory Tour

“If this is your first Buck knife, “welcome aboard.” You are now part of a very large family. We think of each one of our users as a member of the Buck Knives family.

Now that you are family, you might want to know a little more about us. The fantastic growth of Buck Knives, Inc. was no accident. From the beginning, we determined to make God the Senior Partner. In a crisis, the problem was turned over to Him, and He hasn’t failed to help us with the answer. Each knife must reflect the integrity of management. If sometimes we fail on our end, because we are human, we find it imperative to do our utmost to make it right. If any of you are troubled or perplexed and looking for answers, may we invite you to look to Him, for God loves you.

                           -Originally Authored by Al Buck, added to by Chuck Buck, and now upheld by CJ Buck

Buck Knives, founded in 1902 by Hoyt Buck using wore out file blades as raw material to hand craft knives that would hold and edge longer. That ongoing commitment to the creation and development of new products has put Buck on the map as the leader in knife manufacturing heading into the fourth generation of successful knife making.

Today, not much has changed within the Buck Family; publicly proclaiming faith in our Creator, giving Him the glory of life and that the company is concerned with spiritual profits in addition to making the best knives in the world.

Buck is a company with a faith as hard as the steel that the knives are forged from and it is an honor to be a customer of Buck as well as an ambassador for such a profoundly inspirational company. Being a part of that family made stopping by the factory for a behind the scenes tour of what goes into making such fine knives with the famous, “Forever Warranty” on the top of my list.

Meeting with the Buck Team, CJ Buck, Joe Piedmont, Rachel Rogers, Jennifer, Stephanie Young, and Jacob Siembida, discussing ideas for new knives, how I use knives afield, and more. Product innovation from a grass roots level, this is what Buck is all about.

After the meeting was over, Billy Bates, who has personally manned nearly every phase of knife production took me on a tour of the plant. It was truly impressive the amount of knives that the employees produce daily and how much care and hands on craftsmanship goes into each and every knife.

The wide assortment of knives from fixed blades, folding to custom creations, Buck even makes beautiful knives that feature gorgeous handles made out of elk antler. No detail is over looked. The knives are hand sharpened and tested with each one literally cutting through paper before being boxed up and shipping out.

It is an honor to work with a company that since 1902 has literally put their faith and family, and the love of our creator into each and every knife. The quote at the beginning of this story is a small proclamation that is placed within each completed knife, this BIG message has reached nearly millions of people every year. If you are not already part of the Buck family of knives, get online today at Cabela's and join our family by carrying the #EdgeOfALegend

 

North American Hunter- Oregon Mountain Turkey Hunting

My breath hung in the air like slowly drifting smoke. Spring was slowly arriving, but not this morning.

The cold mountain air bit at my face. Peering into the deep, timber-filled draws with box call in hand, my good friend, hunting partner and fellow Cabela’s Pro Staffer, Jim Brennan, let out a series of hen yelps with the hopes of enticing a tom turkey to gobble.

Carl, a fellow Central Oregon local, had been so gracious to share the morning hunt with us. These public land mountains had been hunted by him in pursuit of turkeys for many years and he knew just were to check for birds coming off the roost.

North American Hunter- Giant B's of the Clearwater

An amazing adventure doesn’t always mean many battles won, rather the experience you get to take with you in the form of memories.

The Clearwater River is home to some of the finest steelhead fishing in the world, a place where anglers gather from around the globe for the opportunity at true world-class fish. When Gary Lewis, a long-time friend and mentor, author and the host ofFrontier Unlimited TV approached me to film a fishing show with him on the Clearwater, I knew I was in for a “reel” good time.

Charles Theodore Buck Memorial Address

The Buck family, the Buck Knives company and millions of outdoors lovers have lost a very special man with the passing of Charles T. (Chuck) Buck, 78, February 6, 2015, in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Born May 13, 1936, in San Diego California, to the late Alfred and Ida (Shapter) Buck, Chuck was a man of deep faith.


Chairman of Buck Knives, Inc., Chuck personified the warm family tradition of the American knifemaking company he headed. He was the third generation, following his grandfather, Hoyt Buck, who made his first knife in 1902, and his father Al Buck. After his discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1961, Chuck learned the ins and outs of the knife business and was there when Buck Knives, Inc. emerged. Within a few years, Chuck was named corporate vice president for manufacturing. In June of 1979, Chuck became president of Buck Knives at age 43. He was later inducted into the Blade Cutlery Hall of Fame in 1996.


Chuck was an outstanding business leader and was influential in Buck Knives' considerable growth. The company, which started out in a wooden lean-to, has now grown to a 128,000 square foot building, employing more than 300 people in Post Falls, Idaho. Chuck handed over the business to son, CJ in 1999 but remained active as Chairman of the Board.


Chuck was widely known and respected by outdoor editors and writers, especially those who shared time with him at the annual meeting of the Outdoor Writers Association. They always made it a point to hear what he had to say about innovations in cutlery, and many also wanted to exchange thoughts on their mutual Christian faith.


Chuck was such a friendly, gregarious gentleman that people meeting him for the first time went away feeling they had been friends for years. It really did not matter who they were, they were important to him. He loved to travel all over America, many times with his wife Lori, visiting with customers in stores to hear what knife users liked and what they wanted.


As testament to his faith, Chuck included with every Buck knife a message from the Buck Family that speaks of the growth of Buck Knives and the determination to make God their Senior Partner. "If any of you are troubled or perplexed and looking for answers, may we invite you to look to Him, for God loves you," a thought Chuck added to the message, originally written by his father in 1974. The message is clear, and a testament to the foundation to which Buck Knives was built upon.

Chuck took every opportunity to share the message and through the years had received numerous letters thanking him for spreading the word. One of his most cherished letters came from a woman who re-dedicated her life to Christ after reading the message. The woman was planning to commit suicide by cutting her wrists with a Buck knife. When she opened the box, the message fell out and as the woman read the passage, "For God loves you..." she felt warmth in all directions and knew it was the Holy Spirit. In a mentor session, Chuck recalled this story and added, "If we don't ever get another letter, that one will be the one I count as most important."


Chuck attended San Diego State College, Southern California College and Mesa College and was also served in the U.S. Navy.


Chuck was preceded in death by his parents Al and Ida; and brother, Frank. He is survived by his beloved wife, Lori; son, CJ (Heidi); daughter, Maralee (Joe) Buck-Houser; sister, Janice (Robert) Holt; grandchildren, Josh Buck, Sarah (Hans) Hauge, Rachel (Tony)Wagner, Andy Houser, Aaron Houser, Brittany Nelson, Reese Hyde; great grandson, Tandrup (Tan) Hauge; and numerous family and friends throughout the country.


Chuck will be greatly missed by his family, friends, everyone at Buck Knives, and throughout the outdoor industry. 
A celebration of Chuck's life will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, Feb. 13 at Real Life Ministries, 1866 North Cecil Road, Post Falls, Idaho. A final memorial will be held May 13, 2015 in San Diego, CA.
