It's been pretty quiet in here so I figured I'd post some photos from hunting and fishing trips from the past few years with my buddy and I. I am a terrible fisherman so they're going to skew heavily towards hunting and the general outdoors :oops: Some IL fishing, IL turkey hunting, NE turkey hunting, NE mule deer, AZ coues deer, AZ elk, IL squirrel, assorted hiking trips. Enjoy!

Great shots, really enjoyed checking them out. Was that antler coming off or is that a mutation?

Thanks all - Phil, that deer was shedding its antler. Surprised I managed to get a shot of it since it was just barely hanging on.

Absolutely killer photos. That first one really speaks to me. Guessing the muley was shot in the Sand Hills?

That's a real good guess :)

The first one is from this year's turkey season up in NW Illinois. Seems the gobblers didn't like getting 4 inches of snow dumped on them overnight.

Thanks! I'm heading back to CO next week to follow a buddy around on an elk hunt, so hopefully there will be a pile of new photos and stories soon!

Damn I missed the middle pics. Love the Cobra interior shots. I photograph autos for a living and used to shoot at a ton of car shows as well, so I recognize a great interior shot. The rest are beautiful, thanks for sharing

Agreed on the muskrat pic, looks like something out of a disney movie or planet earth doc.

Lost it at the squirrels :lol:

This picture was taken in Italy, I had a holiday there this summer in a property in lake Como here and went fishing almost every day. Really beautiful place to be and enjoy time, I loved it there.
