Taking your wife along to hunt and shoot video solves many problems, but also creates problems, because you now have two people to consider. When you add-in two young boys, how a family can hunt and travel together may appear tough. When people ask us on our TV show that appears on the Sportsman’s Channel, Fox Sports South and CBS in Montana , who will be the shooter and who will run the camera, I mention that we can put-in for four tags instead of just one, since our boys hunt with us.… Read more

We were in east Georgia on a friend’s place in Oglethorpe County. My hunting partner for this trip was my thirteen-year old cousin, Cody. We had taken Cody out the year before on this particular property and had found a nice eight that he wanted to take this season.
