Fun in Arkansas

August and I spent this past week in Arkansas attending the Arkansas Media Fishing Adventure put on by Arkansas Tourism.  We stayed at the beautiful Gaston's Resort on the famous White River in the northern Ozark area of Arkansas.  This place was awesome - great accomodations, awesome food and super people. 

The event included a multi-day photo shoot with professional photographer Bill Lindner and it attracted the best, heavy-hitter writers from all over North America.  Here are a few photos from our trip. 

August with here guide Tom with a nice striper.  He put them on a great bite all day - they caught a load of fish, evident in the next picture. 

These fish are very good eating - Heather Brosdahl, Kelly Marble and August Collinson

My first spotted bass.  It should be noted that August was able to take in all the good fishing while I was busy working every day!  She also had a great day of trout fishing on the White River - I will post more pictures later. 

I'm headed into the woods for the rest of the day to check some trail cameras so look for some deer trail cam pictures later as well.  I have a tough week of deer hunting ahead of me!  -Gussy

Trail Camera Pictures - Round two

A pretty nice one with some "junk"

Some more fighters

A healthy 8 pointer

A nice 8 pointer with some "stickers"

I have had pictures of this guy for three years now - he is tall but is lacking mass.  You don't see a lot of antlers like these around here.  Very unique.

Everybody loves the fighting pictures.  Set up a camera near a scrape and you will get some!  Notice that one of these bucks is blind in one eye - the one on the right - indicated by the fact that the eye does not shine.  I have quite a few pictures of this guy and he lost vision in one of his eyes.  It probably happens all the time based on all the fighting these bucks do. -Gussy


Trail Camera Deer - Round one

Here is the first batch of trail camera deer pictures.  We have been seeing some beauties, we just need to get them a little more active during the day!  The weather in Sunset Country has been awesome the past few weeks though, it has been a lot of fun to be in the woods.  The colder, nastier weather this week will get them moving a little more. 

This is a deer that I have had pictures of for 4 years in a row now.  He gets bigger every year. 

This is a new one that just showed up this week.

Another new one

A nice ten pointer

Some fighters... 

A nice one with some junk.

There is more to come in a few days, this is just a sample.
