Family Safari with Infinito Safaris-Part 2

Day 7, we drove back from Kruger, but made a stop at Life Form Taxidermy. We had a full tour, and the rest of the group had no idea what all went into taxidermy and between that and some of the huge lifesize mounts, they all were in awe. During that tour, Kristin told us […]

Another KY Buck

Another One Down In KY I have to admit my family was riding high after Will took his mature 10-pointer on October 2. He had been so patient, waited almost 3 years since his last buck, and really made quite a difficult shot in low light. I figured my KY deer season couldn’t get any […]

Patience Pays off for Will

I find early October a pretty tough time to kill a good whitetail especially on years like this when oaks are dropping everywhere. I generally concentrate the first two weeks of the month taking my boys, letting them shoot does for management, etc. They are 11 now, and neither wants to shoot little bucks, so […]
