The preacher, Efton Green, struck again on some winter-time bowhunting action in Georgia. This time it was a big fatty hog that got the shaft. Efton ran the big hog off from the feeder on his way in to the stand. The hog came back in later in the evening and Efton made good on the shot. Way to go Efton!
I got out the other morning for a duck hunt with my buddy, Kenny Louden, and a few other local guys. The conditions were perfect. Sunshine and windy. The ducks were flying better than they had for most of the season. New ducks were in the air and checking things out all across the flooded bottoms we were hunting. It was a good day with some great guys. Kenny guides waterfowl and fishing trips in the Kentucky Lake area.

The 2014 ATA show in Nashville is underway and there's no shortage of great new gear to check out this year from some new companies as well as from long-time favorites. I was really glad to see the return of my favorite old Double Bull ground blind brought back for 2014. The Primos Double Bull Shack Attack is somewhat of a new and improved version of the T2 ground blind from back in the day. It's really light, incredibly quick to set up, and breaks up the typical "box blind" appearance of most blinds. www.primos.com
Be sure to check back for daily blogs and product reviews from the show each day.
A big congrats to my buddy, Doug Temple, and his wife, Shanda, on her first deer. Shanda killed the buck Christmas evening while Doug ran the camera. It was a long season but Shanda stuck with it and proved that persistence pays off. Way to go Shanda!
