Matt jumped this ringneck pheasant as it was trying to run back to the hills. He quickly grabbed his camera and got this cool shot of the bird in full stride. He says, he’s been excited to get the dogs out and go after a few of these gorgeous birds.

One of the guys at Brandon’s work told him of a pair of four points down by the river. He and his brother met after work and followed a track to the edge of the tamarisk. They flipped a coin of a lifetime on who got to shoot and who got to flush him out. As you can see Brandon won, his brother gets some extra meat and Brandon get to hang the Gold Bar buck on his wall.

In the middle of the night in the middle of the swamp, in a small boat, Brittany was the only one to spear both of her gaters on her first two attempts.

But our winner tonight, drew a once-in-a-lifetime tag and in turn created some once in a lifetime memories. Jace didn’t believe his dad when his dad called to inform him that he’d drawn a tag for a desert big horn sheep hunt on the Zion Unit. With the help of family and friends, Jace came away with this beautiful ram. In order to retrieve the ram the group had to cross a river multiple times, but a big rainstorm came in and made the last river crossing, far to dangerous. So they settled in, and told stories around the campfire. Jace says, the best part of hunting is the memories we all create with those around us, and this hunt he’ll never forget. Congrats Jace on working so hard to fulfill your dream and here’s something to cook a few backstraps on, our big prize for having…our snapshot of the week.
