Helluva Hunt video. Antelope hunt in Douglas,Wyoming for disabled hunters.

Here is a video that explains a little bit about the Helluva antelope hunt. I was lucky enough to be a hunter at this event in 2013. This video shows a little bit about how and why the organization is such a success and still going strong after 30 years.

If you are interested or know of anyone who would like to take part in this event I would highly recommend it. Follow this link for information to apply.

Whether it be a retail store promotion, a conservation group banquet, a deer or turkey classic, a kids event, whatever it may be, the Mossy Oak ProStaff are full-fledged ambassadors of the Great Outdoors and the Mossy Oak brand. They love to share their own insights and experiences.

Set up trail cameras.

One of my favorite times of the year is the time for setting up trail cameras. It is like Christmas morning every time I go and retrieve a memory card. You never know what you are going to find. Of course I am looking for Mr. Big Whitetail but I enjoy any critter that gets captured on a card.

I have only used one brand of camera and that is Moultrie. I have a Moultrie M 80 and D 55, and have had good luck with them so I have had no need to change. I try to set them up sometime in June and hopefully don't take him down until January. I only take them down earlier if the snow gets too deep to retrieve the cards. With our cold temperatures battery life usually isn't very good. Especially when it consistently is below 0°F. But even with those temps, these cameras work great.

I might try some other brands in the future. What brands do you like?
