Welcome to Live Hunt 2010

Welcome to Outdoor Life's 2010 Live Hunt!

It's going to be a great season! We've got a ton of exciting hunts planned for this year!

Also new for 2010 is the new Live Hunt webpage here on Outdoor Life. A High Definition video viewer, updated and easier to navigate photo galleries, a question answer area, a Live Hunt map, and a daily Calendar will make this years Live Hunt much more interactive and easy to follow!

We've also also fortunate to have a outstanding set of sponsors signed up this year. Joining us again as the headline sponsor is Gore Optifade Concealment. We've also lined up Explorer Satellite Communications, Mystery Ranch Backpacks, Bowtech Archery, Remington Rifles, Leica Sport Optics, Danner Boots, Umpqua Indian Foods, Sitka Gear, Hilleberg Tents, and Energizer Batteries! Tag along and watch how we put their gear to the test for 120 days straight.

Blogs, photo galleries, and videos will be updated weekly to keep you right in the action of all my 2010 adventures.

We've put a ton of work into finding great hunts for this season, we hit the show circuit hard this year and have found a couple great outfitters to work with as well. A Dall Sheep hunt with Harold Grinde from Gana River Outfitters and a Bison hunt with Dean, Katie, and Dustin Roe of MVP Outfitters are on the books! Other than those two hunts, everything will be the same style/format as last year... public land, do-it-yourself hunts for Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, and Whitetails are also scheduled! As always, hunts will be conducted using Fair Chase practices and NO FOOTAGE will be recreated or staged.

My goal is to bring everyone along and show them what's possible, hunts EVERYONE can do, with just a little planning and effort.

Talk about a schedule...! We'll start our hunting season on August 15th and take you right through the end of my season on December 15th!
