Road Trip: Interlude Five Continues…Africa, Part Four

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by

There it was. Again. The low, guttural rumble of challenge. From a very large feline predator. Reeking of menace. How far? The bush screen allowed sound, not sight. Close.  Roy and I were poised to receive the attack—300 pounds of … Continue reading

Road Trip: Interlude Five, Continues….Africa, Part Three

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by

The daily walking continued. Impala carcasses were carefully hung in strategic trees—trees where evidence of leopard activity was sought and found. We built leopard blinds. Capstick (and many other writers of Africana hunting) tells marvelous tales of waiting in such … Continue reading

Road Trip: Interlude Five, Continues….Africa, Part Two

Posted on July 21st, 2016 by

I had chosen Roy Vincent as my PH because he was amenable to my hunting style– walking rather than hunting from a vehicle. He was very physically fit so we made a perfect team. The man liked hiking as much … Continue reading

Posted on June 7th, 2016 by

Here is another encounter where having a firearm at hand supported the wellbeing of yours truly. This one comes under the heading of a bona fide road rage incident. The scene is a not-well-known to me city I had driven … Continue reading

Road Trip: Northward

Posted on May 16th, 2016 by

I awakened to a crisp dawn at my Corral Camp. I still had the place completely to myself. Should I linger, exploring afoot…perhaps down to the Mimbres again? Or saddle up Sheeba and head up the road…get a taste of … Continue reading

Road Trip: The Corridor Continues

Posted on May 15th, 2016 by

I’ll ask readers to excuse my tardiness in getting back to this narrative; what with field time, travels in Hawaii and family matters I have been distracted. Besides, like the best of Road Trips themselves I’m following a leisurely path … Continue reading

Road Trip: Forest Service Road 150

Posted on April 27th, 2016 by

While disappointed with the no-fishing regulation in the Gila I understand, and accept, the principle of protecting our natural resources. The unique-to-the-area trout had experienced a trauma of some sort (I forget the specifics) in the distant past and the … Continue reading Continue reading

Road Trip: Davis Mountains

Posted on April 6th, 2016 by

Texas Highway 118 ascended steadily north from Terlingua. Beige earth and pale green cactus segued to red-brown dirt and dark green Ponderosas and even some aspen. I was climbing into the Davis Range, what turned out to be a real … Continue reading Continue reading

Road Trip: Santa Elena Canyon

Posted on April 2nd, 2016 by

Santa Elena Canyon sits at the western edge of the Park, whereas Boquillas Canyon resides on the eastern edge. I had selected the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive as my route to Santa Elena because the “scenic” part of its title … Continue reading Continue reading

Road Trip: Beyond Boquillas

Posted on March 26th, 2016 by

Returning from the hike out to the canyon I climbed aboard Sheeba and motored southwest along remote River Road East to intersect with the equally remote 4WD Glenn Springs Road for the long poke northwest into the Chisos Mountains—the range … Continue reading Continue reading

Road Trip: Boquillas Canyon

Posted on March 24th, 2016 by

Let’s begin where we left off: with the Blizzard interruption here at home. Our final snow depth was 25 inches. We most always get a lot more up here on the north side of Green Mountain than anywhere else in … Continue reading Continue reading

Road Trip Continues

Posted on March 16th, 2016 by

I’m back from scouting and find 14” of snow here at the homestead. Still coming down in fact. A normal spring here in Colorado.  The scouting was rewarding. I located elk, whitetail and mule deer…all within a three mile hike … Continue reading Continue reading
