- Where storing non-food items in a cooler and your frozen deer steaks outside is the norm.
- Deer camp, the one time a year it takes you longer to get dressed than a pack of 5 year olds and their mothers.
- The biggest threat to your hunting trip is a fogged scope, only because you can’t get buck fever when you can’t see the deer.
- Negative 20 windchill and the change in attitude it brings. The house is on fire?…”At least I’ll be warm when I go.” Whitetails are chasing does?…”I’ll be home late honey.”
- At some point smell freezes right? Right??
- Long hours in a blind make you become philosophical. To shoot or not to shoot, that is the question.
- A foot of snow is a welcome sign because it makes it easier to trail blood, unless that foot of snow is on top of your trail.
- The shivering isn’t from buck fever.
- Cleaning a deer is a welcome sign, if only because it temporarily warms your hands.
- Hanging deer makes your trees look like redneck Christmas trees.

Elk or Mule Deer Hunting in Colorado
Hunting elk or mule deer in the Colorado Rockies is not a walk in the park. Miles and miles of hiking must be done to pursue the game you are after and it requires persistence, determination, and teamwork to make it a successful hunt. They say that going though something challenging with someone will bring you closer together and that is exactly what this hunt will provide. Being surrounded by beautiful mountains and vast amounts of opportunity will provide for a great trip, no matter what the outcome may be.
Okay, three of them are epic. One of them is a homemade video we put together to let you know Powderhook just launched the largest ever upgrade to its website. We’ll let you decide which is which!
Top 5 things to do with your antlers
5. Decorate. Whether they’re the yearling set of spike sheds your daughter found while spring turkey hunting last year or the trophy 10 point your grandpa killed in the 50’s, antlers are always a great conversation piece. Hung on the wall or arraigned on a shelf, they’re sure to spark the curiosity of your guests.
Powderhook team member Marty Hogan made his way up to Alaska for a once-in-a-lifetime hunt. Here is his story:

We flew to Anchorage and then took a floatplane to Rainy Pass Lodge, smack dab in the middle of nowhere. We had hundreds of miles of untouched wilderness all to ourselves.
