Shed Hunting With Dogs

Tom Dokken and his dog Rookie pursue whitetail antler sheds on this simulated antler shed hunt. The scenario is the final stage of training for a shed hunting dog.  The idea is to build confidence in the dog by guaranteeing success.  Want to know more about hunting sheds with dogs?  This video is an excerpt from the new DVD Shed Dog Training.

Dogwoods @ Old Court House Museum

This afternoon I drove by the Old Court House Museum to see the dogwoods in bloom and took a few pictures to share.  It's always a pretty site to see in my hometown of Vicksburg, MS, every Spring.

Mike's Long Ways Off Turkey

My long time CamoSpace friend and now Facebook friend, Mike Johnson, called in a nice gobbler and dusted him with his 12 gauge 870 Remington using a 3" mag Remington express, 5 shot turkey load. He got his turkey back on May 15, 2010.  He said it was the first turkey that he actually called in from a long ways off (like 300 yards) all on his own running and gunning way out in a big swamp woods.  He actually was about half lost when he called him in and shot him and had to figure out how the heck to get back out based on listening to noise from the highway that he knew was about a mile east of him.  What an adventure in our great wild outdoors for Mike!  A turkey hunt he will always remember.

Ponies Chasing A Boar!

A couple happened to be filming while standing near a road when all of a sudden a wild boar comes running and ends up coming towards them.  Watch the ponies get after the boar chasing it away. What a scare this must have been for these two in our great wild and crazy outdoors!

A Turkey Silhouette

My Facebook and blogging friend, Kevin Paulson, took this neat picture of a turkey hen hanging out in his backyard and the neighbors backyard yesterday.  It is really a neat shot!  Kevin lives in Lincoln, NE, and is CEO and Founder of I met Kevin when he lived in Virginia while visiting my youngest daughter.  It was great to meet another blogger who is now a professional hunter. Kevin also has a Facebook site as well.  I wanted to share this cool picture he took in our great wild outdoors!

The Best Turkey Decoy

Bruce Evans was turkey hunting about a year ago when this hen showed up when he made a call.  The turkey thinks he's another hen and follows him through the woods approximately 4 miles. Sometimes it's incredible what can happen in the woods.  He said he thought about putting a leash on her! This is our crazy and wild outdoors!

I think she really wants to go home with him!  (7 Parts)

Youth On The Hunt

Recently when some baseball games were cancelled one father took a chance to share opening day of turkey season with his boys.  Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Chad Shealy shared his sons opening day accomplishment.  

Grayson and Mayson Shealy have played baseball since they were 3-years old and began travel ball at six. Inevitably Saturday mornings during turkey season always seemed to be occupied with a tournament.  Due to so much rain their previously scheduled baseball outing to Hattiesburg was cancelled.  So Chad jumped on the opportunity to take the boys on their first opening day ever.  

"During the early morning hours everything began to fall in place.  We set up in just the right spot, with five gobblers that liked what my call was saying.  They marched in at 30 yards and posed for an instant.  Then on the count of three, both boys landed their first turkeys and I had my best hunt ever, Chad said."

Congratulations to Gayson and Mayson for getting their first turkeys in our great wild outdoors!
