    Hunter For Life Blog #5 9/24/17

    Life is rolling high gear now in Western Wyoming. We have the first fire of the season in the wood stove and September isn’t over yet. The month began with sweltering heat. So much so that I hunted with little enthusiasm the opening week during our annual family bowhunt gathering.  A few folks killed elk but were really having to hustle to preserve the meat. We process our own meat and I need decent cooling temperatures to do it right. I love big racks as much as any one but have always valued the meat most. Cool temps are here now, snow is in the high country and I am a week away from being unburdened and able to finally HUNT… […]

My last article, titled “Is Long Range Hunting and Shooting for You?” was intended to help you decide if you wanted to step off into the bottomless money pit that is long range hunting and shooting. This one will hopefully help you decide to take the leap to join me and countless others. Misery loves company. […]

A Dream in the Making by Kody Meyer

It all started a year and a half ago, when I received a phone call from someone offering me a job in Wyoming, the crazy thing is I hadn’t even applied for it. Before making a decision I called my dad for some advice, when I asked him what I should do, he told me that I should go for it while I was still young. Three weeks later I was on the road to Wyoming […]

Setting Goals

March 23rd, 2017|0 Comments

When running the trails, the Altra Lone Peak 3.0’s are my current “go-to” shoe. Now that the decision has been made to return to Leadville in 2018 for an attempt at the sub 25 hour buckle, it is time to come up with a plan. For the past couple months I have been focused on building my weekly base mileage. I began somewhat slowly by putting in roughly 25 miles per week. I did this for several weeks and then bumped it up to around 30 miles. The week before last I finally broke 40 miles and just this last week, I managed to get in 52 miles. After taking six months off without running a single mile…..I am beginning to feel like a runner once again!! This week I have been […]

It Begins!

David crossing the finish line of the 2014 Leadville 100 trail run. “I want one!” Those were the only three words I said as Cheryl and I were standing at the Leadville Race Series tent shortly after running the Bolder Boulder 10K in May 2013. What I was referring to was the large silver belt buckle lying on the table in front of us that read: Leadville Trail 100 – The Race Across the Sky. This was no ordinary belt buckle….you simply can’t whip out your wallet and go buy one. No, this particular belt buckle you must pay for in blood, sweat, and tears while running 100 miles in one of the toughest races in existence […]

The Huskemaw Advantage by Zach Key

March 11th, 2017|0 Comments

Hunting Mule deer is in our blood, the actual kill is a bonus but the luxury of sitting in the high country with all the big game animals including mule deer and elk is a true blessing. It’s something I dream about all year and when I finally get the chance to go ride into the high country with my trusting animals it’s so rewarding. I often have people ask me why I choose Huskemaw to be my glass of choice in the high country. They also ask me why Blue Mountain Precision is a dealer of Huskemaw and offers their scopes on all of their builds. I have been thinking about how to articulate this and I’m hoping to answer that question the best I can. […]
