My First Spring Bear




Let me just start this story out by admitting I’m scared of bears.  I mean, I’m sane.  Of course, I’m scared of them, Have you seen The Revenant?  Yeah, I know it was a Grizzly in that movie, and I know I was hunting Black Bears, but still, that was still fresh in my mind.   Bears are scary shit.  They don’t screw around.  I feel that it is good to have a healthy fear of predatory animals when you are hunting.  It heightens your senses, and I feel like it makes me a better hunter.

Spring Bear Backpacking Trip 2014


This was my first backpacking hunting trip.  We were backpacking in 5 miles to a mountain lake and joining Aron, Billy, and Kelly on this bear hunt.   This was the first time my son and I would be backpacking into the spot we would be hunting.  Having to carry everything I needed on my back was a new experience.  We plotted and planned every detail (or so we thought).  My pack was KIfaru DT3, Lane’s was Kifaru Pointman and Ryan’s was EMR 2.

#25 Q&A with the Avery’s


We figured it was about time to answer all the questions we have received over the past six months and giveaway that Kifaru 14R. We ramble on a bit, go down a few rabbit holes and miss pronounce several products.  Ryan also might be a bit delirious because he has Chicken Pox…… WTF!

How to coordinate your hunts and your family life. A definitive guide ;) to peacefully planning the hunting season with your spouse.


All of us have been there.  Surprise! A 5-day hunting trip sprung on you by your spouse, days before three planned parent teacher conferences and two dentists appointments. All set to happen the same week.  Were you also told ‘I told you about this, remember’?  Yeah, me too.  A big line of bull no doubt.    I would like to say now that I have started hunting this no longer happens or that I understand how things can get planned on the fly, but my Type A personality still calls BULLSHIT!   But hey, I get it.  I too forget to tell my husband about planned events.  Are they a trip out of town? No, but still.  Shit happens.
