“Lost”, but Found in the Woods

The Spirit of the Hunt

Photos document a moment in time, but they only tell part of the story. Our hunting stories come to life every time we tell them, but no story is as vivid as the experience when it happened, and the words pale in comparison to the actual hunt. But for me, as with most...

Me and My Beretta!

If this sounds a bit familiar, you may recall that I wrote a blog post called “Me and My Benelli” a couple of years ago. There I go again . . . falling in love with another Italian shotgun. Embracing my Italian roots (I am of 100% Italian ancestry), I have long been...

Lovey Dovey!

Getting Schooled on Surf Fishing!

Living on the beautiful South Carolina coast for many years has given me plenty of opportunity to enjoy just about all it has to offer. Recently I was on my morning walk on the beach, and it hit me like a rogue wave that I have never been surf fishing. I’m always...

Clay Shooting Obsession!

The woods ring with the sounds of shotgun blasts all around, but you hardly notice. You are one with your shotgun, anticipating the clay to be released and the rush you get with the impact when your shot pattern meets the clay at its apex. The mini fireworks display...

Bacon Wrapped Quail!!

One way to get through the off season blues is to reward yourself with the game you brought home during hunting season, and that is just what we did this past Mother's Day weekend. Without a second thought, I chose quail to be the centerpiece for our special dinner....
