Backcountry hunting is 95% about the place and the process ~ the adventure and what’s learned is its own success. Last weekend I ventured into a remote area of Ca wilderness served my a marginally functional “trail” down into the Stanislaus River canyon. Some of the most incredible scenery, topography and habitat I’ve ever visited. Going back in Spring/summer for sure! Animal sign everywhere, saw 6-7 does both blacktail and mule deer. .

Teaching proper gun control: safety, handling & care, firm hold & steady aim. @_logancostello_ taking his first shot with my 30-30. .

Guys, a little advice for a happy life. Surprise your lady with a nice dinner, love notes, things that make her feel pretty... and occasionally something totally fun & functional, like merino wool booty shorts she can wear while camping. .

Sundays: “take me to the beach”. Ok lover... follow me. ⛰ and 🏖 always confuse me I enjoy them both so much. Thankfully @heelsontherun had some fancy new @brooksrunning #cascadia #trailrunning shoes to test out. (We match now!). Lake Margaret Trail just outside of #kirkwood was an easy and beautiful hike. Caples Creek drainage is definitely going to see me again - maybe #trout #fishing with @_logancostello_ and some time to find the 🦌 and 🐻 hiding in the woods.

This trail camera thing is a little addicting ~ but with a 9 mile mountain loop to check them, it’s a great workout! D4 resident blacktails and a honey-brown Ca black bear getting into my favorite backcountry meadows. Antlers are growing and everybody is getting fat on forage.

What’s up young buck?
Gonna be another week or more before I can check the game cameras. This spot shows me a few different deer almost everyday ~ and they’re fascinating.

Shoutout to @thenorthface for making ridiculously good gear. Not many 3-season tents hold up for nearly 30 years. The only drawback with this shelter is it’s heavy - compared to modern versions. Tempted by the promises of new gear, but for now I’ll either get stronger or just shave a few pounds somewhere else.
