Highest of Highs to the Lowest of Lows

Humbled and honored Really it was kind of fun, when I was asked by a fellow outdoor writer John Phillips, of Night Hawk Publications Inc, if he could interview me for a project he was doing with PSE. I mean how does an everyday hunter and archer like myself say no to that. John asked […]

Hunters Don’t Sleep…. Trail Cams
