Safety in the state. Tundra Swans (aka Whistling Swans) are a common resident in the state of California during the Winter months. While they are illegal to hunt, research on these birds remains important. If this 13 y/o Swan has traveled the same distance (home and back) each migration for its entire life, it would be clocking in at around 62,000 miles! Swipe to see this bird’s journey!

This is another photographic effect that I tried during a fall elk hunt. We were having trouble locating elk in this particular drainage and decided it was time to relocate to a different area. I felt the use of a zoom burst, or zoom blur to create motion and action would be a good option to use in showing the urgency we had in moving to better hunting grounds. I’m curious what you think of this “abstract” image? • #wapitiwednesday #wapiti #elkseason #elk101 #thisiswhy #whywedoit #gooutside #liveoutside #trophycountry #itsinmynature #iamsportsman #idahobha #idahowildlifefederation #backcountryhuntersandanglers #publiclandowner #publicland #keepitwild #keepitpublic #nikond500 #outdoorphotography #onthebrinkimages

Came out west to hunt muleys and ended up with a whitetail but I’m not complaining! Muzzleloader hunting isn’t as easy as it looks especially on the wide open prairie. Saw at least a dozen different bucks yesterday and couldn’t close the distance. Watched this one walk right to me from a mile and a half out. Now it time to chase roosters!!! Big thanks to Kacci for putting me on the spot. By the way there’s no deer in public ground😉#thompsoncenter #publiclandowner #publicland #vortexoptics

Dreaming of dream bulls. Unfortunately this particular dream remains dreamt. A massive approach and a full day of patience resulted in a 40 yard encounter with this mountain king. Unfortunately his army (cows) kept him safe. With cows at 18 yards and a swirling wind, the gig was up, with only one step shy of two separate shooting lanes the bull slowly turned and walked right out of my life | #ilovearchery #imissseptember #elk #hunting #archery #spotandstalk #montana #publicland #experience #nature #getoutside

Link in my bio for the 2nd video of the Ohio Archery trip. We had some close calls on nice bucks, fox, coyote, and even the Ohio Grassman! Towards the end of the video I give a little review of what it was like to hunt Ohio public land. I talk about what we learned and bring everything full circle.

@bryceslusser used his muzzleloader to take this nice 8-point in Kentucky! He was on his first out of state hunt.

2019 continued to be an awesome season, I was out sheep hunting in late October when I found a herd of 39 elk with 9 bulls. We had been catching this herd of elk randomly throughout the season and finally they offered a great opportunity at hunting them. Being alone and not having a tag I watched them for a couple hours before it got dark and put a plan together where @j_macfab and I would get up on one ridge and two other buddies got on the ridge behind where they were bedded the evening before. We were in position an hour before legal light when the other two guys texted saying they were right on top of the herd and could hear them chatting. Legal light came and there were elk everywhere between us. They took 3 shots and the herd escaped unscathed. The big bull ran by us at 600 yards but never offered a shot through the timber. We jumped the herd twice more that morning but couldn't relocate the big bull. An incredible public land experience in the backcountry. I never saw that herd again. This would have been that friends first bull elk.... #publicland #bullelk #giant #elk #elkhunting #hunting #bull #typical #wapiti #stealthcam

Foggy, wet, and cold... Must be late season archery! On another note, turning a Sitka Heavyweight Zip-T inside out works great for making snow camo! #elkaddicts #sitkagear #bowhunter #protip #archery #deerhunting #publicland #diverge8 #mathews #sickforit #built4thehunt #trainhard #hunthard #getoutside

My good friend Garrett was able to tag the biggest buck of his life in early November out of one of our favorite stands and you can watch the video at the link in my bio! One of the best parts of deer hunting, to me, is the camaraderie and hunting is a large part of how me and Garrett became friends. This is his first year self-filming and he did an unreal job on this hunt. Hit that link in my bio and let me know what you think of the video!

Caribou in late summer milling around the landscape making small groups into the herds that take off on autumnal migrations. This is a species on the move. Seeing them up close from the cover of large rocks in an open river plain was one of my life’s great joys. It may be a while but I find that I’m forever looking forward to being immersed in Alaska again #Alaska #wilderness #publiclandowner #publicland #caribou #caribouhunting #glassing

Hunting has been a struggle for me so far this year and it’s been an excellent reminder of what makes the success so dang rewarding. I never ever would have imagined that some day I’d have an article written about me, and some of those successes, in one of the most popular hunting magazines around. Insignificant or not, it comes at a great time to remind me that the struggles are usually worth it, which is true for more than just hunting. Thanks @northamericanwhitetailmag for giving me one of the coolest things that’ll probably ever happen to me. Something that my kids can read one day and reflect on their old man and his obsession. - #whitetail #hunting #deer #nature #wiredtohunt #outdoorlife #hunttolive #livetohunt #hunttoeat #meateater #bowhunting #bowhuntordie #sitka #sickforit #mathews #archery #publicland #huntpublic #publiclandsproud #keepitpublic

The Dark River Wapiti block is a formidable corner of Fiordland, and not exactly renowned for the big Elk of days gone by. In fact I can’t recall a bull like this coming out of the Dark! Will and Kyle did the homework, put in the hard yards, persevered, and put themselves in the right place at the right time to encounter this magnificent bull. The whole story is well worth the read, page 3 of the latest NZ Hunter Magazine 📚
