Early Christmas Gift

I got an Ipad!!! My wonderful hubby saved since August and couldnt wait to give it to me, so I got an early Christmas gift last night. YEAH!! Welcome to the 21st century right? So now, my question to all of you is; do you blog from yours (if you have one) and do you find the touch screen works ok or that you wish you had a keyboard? It takes video and photos, which I am hoping will be better than some of the ones I have taken and posted in the past.

So, what should I know about this? I dont see myself taking it into the woods with me but maybe fishing...


  1. Ooohh, we can join the century together, I'm getting one for Christmas. Have used one at work. Touch screen will prob be fine for blogging, but for anything longer you'll prob want a wireless keyboard.

    Have fun w/ it!


  2. I'm still on the fence about my excitement over such technological devices. One on hand I think they could be useful, on the other hand I feel gadgets are annoying and are best used for target practice. For the time being i'm happy with my laptop, maybe you can fill me in on the wonderful advantages to ipad-dom.

  3. you can get a wireless keypad for it that will either blue tooth connect or I think you can connect them to where you would hook a blue tooth to it :)

    Well done Brent, Well Done!

  4. I have an Ipad but the first generation. I thought I would use it more for blogging but I really don't. Maybe I'm old fashion and just like to sit at a desk to write / type. I downloaded Kindle on mine so I do take it out in the woods some when I want to read a book.

  5. Merry Christmas to you and yours Erin. Keep up the good blogging!

    1. Same to you!! And I'm taking all of this week off so I will have time to get some blogging done. Merry Christmas.

  6. Well that is an awesome early Xmas present. We have one, but I do not blog from it, as it takes so long for me to write, that the battery would die before I got to the second paragraph. I find it is great for research and reading. Merry Christmas, Erin!

The unlikely bear hunter

Jesse Phillips had no intention of bear hunting.  He was along for the ride with friend and host of Blood Origins , Robbie Kroger, who was on his annaul bear hunt with Grove Hill Outfitters .  Being convinced that he should go hunt, Jesse grabbed the 45-10 and headed into a treestand.  He wore his cowboy boots, jeans and flannel, "the only thing I didn't do was put on deoterant" Jesse laughed.  Climbing up into the stand a little before 2pm, he held no expectations for seeing his first bear in the wild.  He was doing this just to apease the guys in camp.  At 4:02, a bear appeared. "He was about 40 yards away," explained Jesse, "and he was just walkeding around, sniffing and eating.  He wasn't interested in the bait at all."  Watching the bear, Jesse knew he needed to remain calm. He was in no position to move his gun and take a shot without the bear spooking. The bear walked in and out of the opening with no intention of heading to the bait. Jesse

Grateful for the community

I am technically an adult-onset hunter.   I started when I was twenty after watching Dad hunt every fall and deciding that I wanted to see what it was all about – and that killing your own meat was not a bad thing. If you had asked me (or dad) to imagine what the next decade and a half would be like, I guarantee you neither of us would have pictured this! As I write this, I have just hung up the phone with Taylor and Mark Drury. Throughout deer season, I will be writing up all of the Drury family hunts that will be featured on DeerCast (make sure you have the app or the website bookmarked!) I am also going to continue interviewing hunters from across the country and Canada that have taken amazing deer. Just like last year when I got to f eature Wayne Bernier  from Allagash Adventures after he dropped his amazing 200lb, 20 point buck with a 31 inch spread! The fact that I get to do this blows my mind. I get to share a mutual love and excitement over hunting with so many people and

The Blood Origins Project

"I was looking for a narrative that described who we are as hunters,” my friend Robbie Kroger explained to me, “Essentially looking for an authentic truth about who we are. I couldn't find it. So we built it with Blood Origins.” If you have never heard of Blood Origins, set aside a solid hour and watch the videos on their website or YouTube, featuring some of the most influential people in the hunting world. People like Will Primos , Cuz Strickland and Jim Shockey all share a small piece of their story and the how and why hunting was so important. Robbie has more than 30 unique stories from hunters, nonhunters, men, women, veterans, young and old and each one is a personal look into the importance of hunting and conservation. “It is about our community, and conveying the truth around hunting” said Robbie. The fact that Robbie and I even connected is a testament to the power of the hunting community. As a native South African, American and Mississippian, Robbie was determined
