Camp Chef Snapshot of the Week – 10/27/2012

[CG :2 LineDave AdamsonDouble bands!]

Dave has been taking Matt Eggett and his son Chase on the youth waterfowl hunt for six years. This year for the third year in a row Chase was able to take his limit of geese and to top off the band he got last year, he had his first double and both birds were banded. I’m not sure Chase will ever get a chance to top that feat.

This is Brent and his buddies third annual, 300 mile, week long ATV adventure around the scenic back country of Utah. Brent say they pack everything they need on the ATV’s and head out. No hotels, rough roads, this is truly roughin’ It. These pictures are from the toughest part of their ride as they went across the Devils Racetrack in the San Rafael Swell. At times, Brent tells us, the ride was a bit scary.

Tavish says the Elk hunting was a bit slow this year, so they went fishing at the Gorge and he ended up latching into this six and a half pound rainbow. The fish ran three times, went airborne two feet out of the water before Tavish could land this monster. He now hold the family belt for the biggest fish.

Just weeks after completing their hunters safety, Chase and Bradyn became spoiled for life. Within the first fifteen minutes of the youth waterfowl opener, the boys downed four geese and a duck. Their dad was extremely jealous as that is a feat he’s never done.

Jason and his wife have spent every spare minute scouting for his once in a lifetime high Unitas goat hunt. On the opening morning they were able to get within 360 yards of this beautiful billy. Jason made a great shot, but the goat fell off a ten foot ledge. The plunge chipped the billy’s right horn, taking the goat out of the records book, but Jason couldn’t be happier with his hunt and having his family with him.

And finally our winner tonight left our judges rolling with laughter. Junes twin, eight year old boys, were clearly enthusiastic about catching these trout down on the La Sal Mountains. But when dad decided to turn their catch into a learning experience and show the boys how to clean the fish. Well, their smiles quickly turned to frowns at the sight of fish guts. Well boys, you’re not the only ones who get a little queasy from cleaning fish, but don’t worry, it gets easy every time you do it. Thanks for the laughs and now you two can laugh all the way to the bank, as you haul in our great prize for having our snapshot of the week.
