The magnificence of photographs lie in the responsibility we each have to interpret the narratives they depict for ourselves.

My favorite decoration this time of year is that Christmas greenery found through the mist of winter.

Post hunt reflections are always enjoyable but there’s something about doing it at the bed of a pickup looking at the tangible evidence of the success that make the memories so much sweeter.

Even when they depart the woods and find their way into the freezer and later to the table, our obsession of the story lives on. In my opinion, the story gains new life in the ability to retell it over every meal his body provides and then again when he finds a place on the wall. Where we fail as hunters is just in displaying these animals as a proverbial “trophy” over the mantle and not sharing the stories with those who question our ethics. We forget not everyone understands our thought process and instead of enlightening, so often we attack as a response to us feeling attacked. Take a second to share your thought process and beliefs the next time someone attacks you, remain quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

Crossing the border from New Mexico to Arizona came with a sense of relief. All the hours of preparation were done and all that was left was to focus on putting one foot in front of the other and finding velvet horns. #backcountry #hunting #muledeer .

Small conveniences in the back country can be the difference between weathering the storm and coming out early.

There is something so pure and comforting about a sunrise in the mountains. Follow the link in my bio for a narrative about pursuing bears in the wilderness of Washington state. .

The mountains are unpredictable and unforgiving and a key to surviving them is taking things one step at a time.
