Hawg Quest off the air????

 IMG_3872 P1060206 

   Well it is true After 11 years and 225 episodes Hawg Quest is no longer on TV. No we did not have a falling out or anything like that. Life just got in the way. We the HQ crew are all good and healthy. Taj has taken over the family biz in Roseburg and is doing very well with it. Glenn has started guiding fishing locally and calls his new biz Glenn Hall Adventures. Tom Male is still rockin out and lovin life. We plan to keep Club Hawg Quest active until April. After that we are up in the air.

   We really want to take the time to thank all of you for the support you have shown us all these years. It has always been our goal to make entertaining TV first above all even at the cost of our own dignity. It could have been very easy for us to take moneys and sell out to product demonstrations and phony endorsements. But we didn’t! We presented the NW fishing scene as we found it. We also got to fish with the top guides and outfitters for Southern Oregon to the Bering Sea. We made some wonderful friends and one or two enemies over the years. So many memories from the last 11 years it is hard to think of just one. I think the best part is all the joy we brought to so many through our little show. I got a call just yesterday thanking us for the inspiration we brought to them. Little kids singing the theme song on Youtube to grown men singing it to us on the water. Seeing HQ shirts and hats in FB posts to Magazine photos has been a thrill to say the least. HQ stickers all over the NW and beyond. WOW! You guys have been what makes all the struggles worth it. We can not thank you enough!

Glenn started a new business called  Glenn Hall Adventures. Yes he did change the name for those of you keeping score. He is now guiding locally around the Umpqua River. That’s the Roseburg Oregon part for those that are wondering. He is also taking bookings for some of our Hawg Quest guides around the North West and Alaska. Just call Glenn for more details. You can find his number in the contacts.

Glenn has been busy putting a website together for his new biz. The site address is www.glennhalladventures.wordpress.com   Go check it out!

During the month of August Glenn is offering half price on Smallmouth Bass trips. Glenn averages over 100 Bass per day.

He is also booking a trip with Reyhon Higgins of Tripple C Outfitters out of Astoria Oregon. We are looking for 6 People to join us on the 20th of September for lights out Silvers and possibly a King on the Columbia River. Glenn will be the deck hand for this trip.

 

 

Taj has been super busy too. He had a local biz dropped in his lap a few years ago from a family member and has put a ton of effort into making it a go. We are happy to say he has got the biz up and running in the black. Unfortunately it has cut into Hawg Quest editing production time and that is why  so many re-runs. The good news is we have 230 re-runs of HQ now. Taj prefers to keep the business name anonymous.  Trust me its boring at best,,,lol

Glenn Hall Guide Service now open for business!

That is right! Glenn is now a licensed guide. After many Emails and request for trips, Glenn finally broke down and got it. Salmon, Steelhead, Trout, and Bass are the main focus. Winter Steelhead on the North and South Umpqua. Smallmouth on the Main Umpqua. Trout in the high lakes. Glenn also plans to take it on the road. Glenn has the Wilson River Lodge on the upper Wilson River to guide out of by special request only. Trips with Hawg Quest guides and Glenn as a guest are also possible by request.

Hunting 2014

 

 

IMG_3192

Hunting for myself started out with some Timber Chickens.

Notice the one in the center is a Blue.

 

IMG_3299

It was good to be back in the woods.

IMG_3204

Got a chance to take my youngest boy Brandon seen here shooting the Ten-Twenty two.

IMG_3217

On the way up to Elk Camp I ran into a old friend that just dragged out a Bear.

Way to go J-Bird!

IMG_3218

Shane I were the first two to arrive in Camp.

We were lucky enough to get the tarp up before the rain hit.

IMG_3221

Ribeye and Rice made it all good!

IMG_3259

Brother in laws were next to show.

This picture was taken the day before the start of our hunt.

IMG_3261

It may not look like it but we had a sweet camp.

The green tarp was to protect the kitchen area.

IMG_3205 IMG_3237

 

IMG_3317

This is a few days into the hunt.

Poor Shane was plain tuckered out.

Tiny in the background. He came up with his boy Matt.Sorry no pictures of Matt

Deep n the brush taking a rest with Bro Steve Warner behind me.

Shane and the other bro Jason Misner.

IMG_3338

I brought the Clack up in hopes of taking some time and fish.

But no Elk so I hunted the whole time and didn’t fish but helped haul some gear and made things much easier for me.

Back home we had a coupe of weeks left of deer season.

IMG_3349

 

Jason got this awesome 4 point Blacktail out on the folks place.

IMG_3432IMG_3400IMG_3409Don Howard got this Big Buck just out of Roseburg.

It was in full rut and looking for Does in all the wrong places.

IMG_3438IMG_3441

Here is my Buck for 2014. Got it on the same place Jason did just on a different part of property.

Winter Steelhead and Friends 2014

IMG_2290

Winter Steelhead started late for us due to Trade shows and Flu bugs but we finally got out in March. This Buck came off the North Umpqua and fell to a yarn ball and row.

IMG_2155

Shane hooked this one on a double beaded jig.

IMG_2159

IMG_2162

IMG_2041

We did some bank fishing too.

IMG_2262

We spent a couple days up at the River Vista Vacation Homes up the North Umpqua. The fishing was fair to moderate. Nobody around and we had the river mostly to ourselves. River Vista is Hawg Quests home away from home…..

IMG_2248

Not a lot of Hatchery fish on the North Umpqua Winter run so they all go back. I did manage a fin clip fish. The only fish I have tagged this year so far.

IMG_2171

Don Howard cooking Elk Steaks on the rivers edge.

IMG_2119

These days I like to take a jig rod along when we go side drifting. There are a lot of fishing spots that jigs fish great when drift fishing doesn’t work so well.

IMG_2195

This big hen fell to a yarn ball. To be honest Shane caught this fish and I held it up so to get it back in the H2O as fast as we could. I felt this hen went in the high teens. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

IMG_2208

Here is Shane with another nice fish that fell to the yarn.

Winter Metalhead Rewind!

Check out Big Dave as he goes to net the Fish. See what happens now and watch the video for your self. Fish-On with Hawg Quest Videos!

Steelhead Fever!

IMG_0330 

After a long Summer and long into Fall I’m ready for some Winter Steelhead!

This one fell to a jig last year.

IMG_0280IMG_0284

This one, I saw a piece of water I liked so I pulled the clack to the bank and walked up to find this nice late season Head. I pass up a lot of good looking spots because the boat can’t get to it or it’s not in the main drift. Getting out and walking to it can pay off. Having a Clackacraft does helps me get to spots Metal boats just can’t get me too.

Winter Steelhead Riggin of the Day
