    Had a good run out west

    I live (and hunt a lot) in East Tn, but have been running to West Tn several times a year for the last 17 years. We had our first baby this year so those runs are gonna be a lot fewer for now, but still managed to get lucky and time up a trip with a cold front coming through. Saw a lot of deer...

    Oak Ridge quota hunts

Deer sign was plentiful so hopefully it’s...

    Anybody trained their own dog?

    So my brother got me hooked on duck hunting 3 years ago, and decided I wanted a dog. Bought a chocolate lab female, currently 4 months old. Her dad was a duck hunter, mom was field trial dog, and the pup is a natural. She is only 4 months old now, but man she picks up on most stuff I challenge...
