    Fox Red Labs

    Our pups have great temperaments. We bred the same pair for the second litter and plan to for a third. Great dogs and beautiful too. For the ones that turn out a true red, they are the same color as a ridgeback or blood hound.

    Short Kenai documentary

    I put together a little informational piece on the types of fishing that happen on the Kenai. I’m not trying to cause controversy, just trying to show people the importance of each type. Everyone wants their piece of the action so it’s easy to forget the big picture. Enjoy!

    Homer Halibut trip

    Halibut fishing out of Homer was pretty slow, but my 8 year old caught a nice one on his own. I had to tease him that he had a skate on.

    Spruce grouse vs ptarmigan. telling the difference

    We shot both ptarmigan and spruce grouse on are last trip out, So we made a video of how to tell the difference. We didn't say anything about the ptarmigan being white in the winter so needless to say the distinction in the video is pretty evident.
