What to do in the off season?

I have always enjoyed fishing but have never craved for it as I do for big game hunting. That is until I found Fly Fishing. As an avid bow hunter I have found that Fly fishing is the bow hunting of fishing. My new passion is fly fishing for red fish on the Texas coast…………..

Texas Dove Hunts
Texas Dove hunts are a great way to spend time with friends and family.
What should you look for in a Dove Hunt? What should you ask the outfitter? Here are a few things you can expect and should be asking an outfitter.
– Before you call an outfitter have a budget in mind. Dove Hunts can range from a day hunt trip for $150 per hunter to $1,800 per hunter for a weekend package.
– Have an idea on how many hunters will be in your group. Some Outfitter will give you and your party the entire lodge and ranch exclusive on larger groups.

Shed Hunting in South Texas

Shed Hunting in South Texas

Shed hunting is my second favorite activity in the outdoors besides whitetail hunting. Its time I get to spend with my boys on the ranch. I explain it to them as the Easter egg hunt for antlers. Shed hunting also allows me the chance to see how many big bucks never showed there face this past season and to get a tape on their antlers.

Where do you look?
– Any Water
– Fence lines
– Creeks / Drains
– Protein feeders
– Food crops
– Game Trails

Some of these are pretty obvious but why check fence lines, creeks and drains. You want to check places where a whitetail will need to jump or exert energy. Any jolting can shake a bucks antlers loose.

Watch out for snakes while shed hunting! Good luck and happy hunting.

Instead of just sitting at a blind and praying that a shooter buck would come in we went out and did something we never had done before and in the end it was all worth it……………………………………..

“Atraumatic Extraction and Socket Preservation Bone Grafting”

Scott T Keys DDS

Several years ago Dental Outdoor Adventures, LLC put together a very unique experience combining quality dental continuing education and hunting giant whitetails in South Texas. Dental Outdoor Adventures is now HUNTANDLEARN.COM and we have teamed with Picosa Paloma Ranches to provide you with the truly unbelievable chance to once again hunt GIANT SOUTH TEXAS WHITETAILS while receiving a high quality continuing educational experience. The lodge at Picosa Paloma is top notch, the food is exceptional and the deer are true South Texas Giants. I have worked closely with the ranch owner, Charlie Ammann, for several years to put together the perfect Hunting and Continuing Education Experience and I believe we have finally nailed it. You will go home after the meeting with practical surgical and bone grafting principles that you can put into practice immediately and quite possibly with the buck of a lifetime. One thing is certain, this continuing education experience cannot be matched anywhere else………………………
