Hunting 2014




Hunting for myself started out with some Timber Chickens.

Notice the one in the center is a Blue.



It was good to be back in the woods.


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


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

Way to go J-Bird!


Shane I were the first two to arrive in Camp.

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


Ribeye and Rice made it all good!


Brother in laws were next to show.

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


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

The green tarp was to protect the kitchen area.

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.


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.



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.


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

What we have been up to this Summer………


The first big trip of the Summer for me was to the Kenai River with Pete Tracy and friends.

Didn’t film this and the fishing wasn’t good for Kings.

But I had a great time none the less. look forward to my next trip up!


Our next big trip was to Sitka to visit Derek with Reel Class Charters. Bobbis, Nick Amato, and Taj came as usual.

The new guy was Hawgili and he had it dialed. Derek named Dave and Nick “the Human Down-riggers”.

Three days and no need for Down-riggers. All Mooching and what fun!


Between trips I enjoyed Smallmouth as much as I could.


I got up to Buoy Ten and fished with Reyhan Higgins Tripple C Outfitters. I was there on tough days but Reyhan didn’t disappoint.


Taj and I took a trip up to Port Hardy to fish with Chad’s Coastwide Sportsfishing. It was a great trip and will be a great show.


We ended the Summer with a White water combo fishing trip down the Rogue with Noah’s wilderness Adventures.

Another fantastic trip coming soon to a TV near you!

Now I’m getting ready for Hunting season. You may have noticed my hunting beard in the picture.

If your hunting too please be safe and be sure of what you shoot…Now go get yourself a Hawg!


Winter Steelhead and Friends 2014


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.


Shane hooked this one on a double beaded jig.




We did some bank fishing too.


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…..


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.


Don Howard cooking Elk Steaks on the rivers edge.


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.


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.


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!


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

This one fell to a jig last year.


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.
