Cabela's & Bass Pro Shops Fall Hunting Classic was August 10-26 and to kick off the biggest sale of the fall, I was at Bass Pro Shops in Nashville TN Sunday August 12 from 12-4 showcasing some of my favorite gear from Ruger, Nightforce Optics, Obsession Bows, Ramcat Broadheads, Trophy Taker, Dead Down Wind, Tinks, Buck Knives and more! It was so fun helping one hunter select a new Nightforce SHV F1 scope and several pick out the right Hornady ammunition for their next big game hunt! I love these events.
It was another great weekend at the 4th Annual Craig Family Camp Womens Shooting Clinic where over 70 ladies learned to shoot, shotgun, pistol, rifle, gun cleaning & concealed carry options.
The camp is supported by the community volunteers that work hard to ensure attendees have an outstanding experience. Support to the event was also given by Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops & Buck Knives.
Many of the ladies had never shot a firearm and some hadn’t in over 40 years. Everyone left with big smiles and a sense of new found confidence & empowerment. Thank you to the First Lady of Indiana, the Governor’s wife Janet Holcomb, and State Representatives Peggy Mayfield & Jeff Ellington for attending and volunteering supporting our Second Amendment and legal firearms owners.
It was a great weekend shooting the New England Precision Rifle Seriesmatch with my crew from Ruger including our shooting team captain Doug Koenig, and my friend Laura Evans from Nightforce Optics volunteered as an RO. A huge congratulations to Ruger Engineer Jonathan Mather for winning the Production Division for the second year in a row! Doug finished out in 17th place and I ended with 39th out of 110 shooters.
My gear is better than ever with my 6mm Creedmoor RPR which shooting lights out topped with my Nightforce Optics ATACR scope and Hornady 108gr ELD Match. This match was my top placing finish of the season at a national match. My original goal this season was to finish in the 50th percentile of shooters which I constantly maintained. This match I made the top 1/3! Thanks to my coach Jake Vibbert I have made a lot of progress as a first year competitor over the past few months but I’ve got a lot of work to do.
I’m looking forward to training up for the 2019 season over the fall between hunts.

The Precision Rifle Series Quiet Riot match is in the books. It was a great weekend shooting with old friends and new. My squad took three of the top six finishes. The shooting community has the best people that have truly been an inspiration and mentors to me. Even though we compete against each other, at the end of the day, it is about us running our gun. The team work that is exhibited here for this individual sport is incredible.
My takeaway from this particular match was that I need to work on speeding up my set up and target acquisition. Once, I am there, my hit ratio is outstanding I am just timing out before I can get through the stages but that will improve with time.
I really cannot thank my coach and mentor, Jake Vibbert enough for being my coach and helping me become a better shooter and competitor.
