45 Days...

The 2019 Wildlife In Focus contest has been tough for me. Selfishly… I hope all of the other competitors are feeling the same way…

Everything is different this year. Some songbirds aren’t showing up when historically they should… and many others just aren’t showing up at all. I’m not seeing many rodents and other small mammals. It’s pretty strange…

Other categories are really working out for me. I feel that I’ll be strong with alligators, deer, and some of the other bird categories. We’l see soon…

In my heart I know I’m doing everything possible to make it happen for me this time. I think I’m a skilled shooter, and I’m putting in the necessary time on the ranch. I just need Mother Nature to smile on me…
