Willie and Jase Robertson (left), from A&E's hit show Duck Dynasty, are unlikely TV superstars. And they're still hard-core outdoorsmen at heart.
Willie: Our show, Duck Dynasty, is a family show, and the reaction to it has been overwhelmingly positive. But I’ll tell you what—nobody wrote a manual for this. Nobody wrote a manual on how you run a business while all this is happening at the same time.
Jase: When we go out in public now we’re easily recognized. Basically, when you look like we do—before the show, people kept their distance. People thought I was homeless. Now it’s different. I was in Ohio last weekend, my plane got delayed, and I got there 60 seconds before I was going up on stage to speak. When I walked out, there were two families in the front row and they had “Duck Dynasty” spelled out in paint on their chests. People were cheering and hollering. People were going crazy and I hadn’t even said a word. [ Read Full Post ]
It’s bound to happen eventually, that hunt that makes you wonder if someone has put a voodoo curse on you. This year’s sheep hunt, normally my comfort zone, had quickly turned into a nightmare. After things completely fell apart and I missed a beautiful ram, we put a stalk on an even bigger one. We were already discussing how we were going to pack him out, only to have him give us the slip when the deal was all but done. Having no choice but to forge ahead, we once again shouldered our packs. It took us several hours to work our way back uphill and into a saddle that dropped into a different river drainage.
As we eased our way into the saddle, we had to be careful. With every step we took across the top, more sheep came into view. They seemed to be everywhere. We had to slowly creep along, evaluating every ram that appeared as we made our way over the horizon. After watching one group of rams for about 20 minutes, we crept even farther so that...

When Bob Condon of Soldotna, Alaska shot this moose last month, he didn't expect to break any records. But the massive bull weighed more than 1,500 pounds and sported a rack stretching more than 73 inches, according to the Redoubt Reporter.
A scorer put the rack at 731, and although that figure has since shrunk to 706, the moose is still the second largest ever harvested in the Safari Club International books. Official measurements will be taken after the antlers undergo their full drying period.

Police shot and killed a 6-foot-3-inch mountain lion inside the Des Moines city limits, just blocks from an elementary school yesterday morning.
Homeowner Jim Eagen alerted police to the large feline after almost running into the cat in his backyard.
“I come around the corner of the greenhouse where we have benches with plants ... I looked down and there he was, looking up at me,” the 65-year-old told the Des Moines Register.
Eagen said he eased back into his house to call authorities with the cat’s eyes watching his every move. Despite his explanation in a call to 911, Eagen says he doesn’t think the dispatchers immediately believed him. He told KCCI about the call: “He [911 dispatch] said 'what?' And I said 'I'm telling you what I saw, what I'm seeing.' ” [ Read Full Post ]
A stalk on a mule deer buck starts with a brisk climb, followed by long bouts of complete stillness until the deer is spotted. Then it’s time to step up and close the distance.
Elevation is the stalking hunter’s best advantage over mule deer. A perch on a rise provides a crow’s nest view from which to scan the country with a binocular to look for a buck. Look to the east first thing in the morning, before the view is obscured by the rising sun. Then turn and glass to the west. With the sun at your back, deer stand out like lighted candles.
