BIRDS OF THE VOID

Idaho is home to six native species of upland game birds, ruffed grouse, blue grouse, sage grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, Franklin grouse, and mountain quail.  Idaho’s forest grouse are holding their own and provide unlimited opportunities for those willing to burn the boot rubber to find them.  There is no longer a season for mountain quail…

MEET THE AUTHOR OF IDAHO RUFFED GROUSE HUNTING

Greetings all! We are now in the thick of things in the Idaho grouse hunting season. Rainey and I have been out three times and have struggled to find birds. In three days, I had one quick snap shot at a ruffie that flushed wild. Of course, I missed! It was still good to be…

WAYMENT BROTHERS’ ANNUAL COLORADO FISHING TRIP VIDEO

Last month, my son, Tommy and I headed to Colorado to fish with Brother Shawn for a few days.  We had a total blast and we caught a bunch of fish!  We took our Go Pro and filmed much of the trip.  Tommy made this video which we wanted to share with you all.  We…

IF THAT DOESN’T LIGHT YOUR FIRE . . .

I have this secret spot I love to fish nick-named, “The Mini-Madison,” where I have caught some nice fish over the years, mostly big brown trout, but also a few rainbows, cutthroat and cutbows.  One particular lie at the Mini-Madison regularly holds the biggest fish and I named it “the King Hole” over a decade ago. The…

POOR MAN’S BONEFISH

Most of my life I considered the common carp as a trash fish.  I figured the namer of this undesirable fish mixed up the “a” and the “r” rendering it “carp” instead of “crap.”  I remembered a time when my brother Scotty and I were fishing on the Bear River below our home near Preston, Idaho when…

PREORDER A SIGNED COPY OF IDAHO RUFFED GROUSE HUNTING: THE HEARTBEAT OF THE WOODS

As many of you already know, I am a ruffed grouse fanatic and love the excellent literature on grouse and grouse hunting. My favorite grouse hunting authors are Burton Spiller, Grampa Grouse, and George King, but there are so many others that have written wonderful books on the subject. For a long time, I have hoped to contribute something worthwhile…

PRAYERS FOR RAIN

“He sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.” Matthew 5: 45. Let’s get something straight from the outset: My pup’s name is Rainey with an “E” not just a “Y” like the weather. Admittedly, my first two Brittanys were Sunny (Upland Autumn Sunshine) and Misty (Misty Morning Sunrise) after certain aspects of the weather,…

CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN: DAY FIVE

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” –Edward Abbey I’m a grouse hunter through and through. If I had my druthers, I would opt to hunt for blues, ruffs, or sharptails nine times out of ten. And in Idaho…
