Howling, Squealing and Snarling – Mini Phantom Predator Call

mini Phantom with mini Phantom speaker

I was excited to head to the post office counter yesterday with my yellow slip.  In our little town that of course means you have a package to pick up!  I handed the piece of paper to the man on the other side of the counter with a big smile and then stood there to …

Buster and Thomas – Life on the Ranch

Tom and Buster enjoying a walk together.

We have many animals at the Anstine Ranch.  We have horses, mules, an occasional steer or buffalo, dogs, an emu and then we have two characters you have to see!

Elk Hunting – The Little Gal Gets An Elk | Mia’s Motivations

The Little Gal had the opportunity to hunt a cow elk on private land this year. In mid December things worked out so we were able to take her to a ranch south of town to look for elk.  The morning began with lots of snow so we decided to wait and head out in the afternoon.  …

Waterfowl Hunting – Nothing But Green | Mia’s Motivations

It was Sunday morning.  Time to duck hunt!  Hank & I were up at the crack of dawn.  We donned our gear and started to head out the door when our friend who is visiting hollered "Only green heads!"  We laughed and chuckled because we knew what he meant.  Last week I tagged out right away …

Elk Hunting – Never Quit | Mia’s Motivations

This year's fall elk hunt was, as always, a tough one. I hunted third rifle season which ran November 6th through November 14th. Third season is always a chilly one, and this year was no different. We had it pretty easy the first weekend. It at least got above 40 degrees during the day. The first …

Get Outdoors – Music of the Mountains Elk Hunting | Mia’s Motivations

Break time! I'm sitting in the woods having lunch and admiring the sights and sounds offered by Mother Nature. I eat my lunch and I get to enjoy nature's concert first hand. The breeze is gently blowing. The fallen leaves crackle as they blow across her floor. The pine needles rustle and the aspen's play! …
