  • Utah Muzzleloader Deer

    I drew a decent Utah muzzleloader tag this year. I carried a Thompson Center .50 cal that I bought specifically for the trip because the tag took me 8 years to draw. Idaho does not allow a closed ignition system or 209 primers. Utah does. I got the rifle shooting pretty well and was glad i made the purchase. It was a torrential downpour for 85% of the hunt and somehow my powder stayed dry and the gun went “boom” when I needed it to. I looked at over 150 deer and at least 15 4x4s before taking this deer. General season in Idaho is not quite like that…at least for me.

  • Brittany Puppies Here! Kenya/Django Cross – SOLD OUT

    6tag_110616-120150AKC Hunt Test 3-2011 043

    Kenya Karamojo Bell JH – Kenya is a very proven hunter, AKC hunt test competitor and mother. She was very trainable and had a lot of point at a very young age. Kenya is the reason we purchased Stella and Rouge (full sisters of hers from different litters). Not only is Kenya a phenomenal hunting dog, but she has thrown excellent puppies, 8 or 9 of which we have trained at Cove Mountain Kennels. One of her pups, Boomer of Kenya, was trained and subsequently handled at an AKC field trial in and placed in an open division. It was not only amazing that it was his first trial, but he had a vet diagnosed upper respiratory infection at the time which certainly slowed him down. Kenya is a pistol in the field and a sweetheart at home.

    Karamojo’s Django Unleashed – Django was very trainable, has a lot of point and has been a pleasure to train and hunt. One of his biggest strengths is his ability to “turn it off” when not in the field. He is super chilled out off the field and all business when he is finding birds. Django is a son of FC Light ‘em Up Luke we purchased out of Colorado and couldn’t be more impressed.

  • Idaho Bear Hunt Success

    I drew an Idaho bear tag for the western portion of the state this year and got this bruin. After having our twin daughters, bear hunting became something I had to put on the back burner. I’ve bear hunted very seldom since having our daughters. Bird hunting is always priority followed by hound hunting for lions and bobcats. While I can hunt birds and cats near the house, I had to travel at least 2 hours to run bears. Drawing this tag offered me an excuse to spend a long weekend after them. Pictured is Drama the redtick.

  • No Title

    Here is a picture of a Brittany we have in for training. Ransom is a 7-month-old Cove Mountain Kennels puppy from my Stella/Cooper cross. We haven’t had him long but he is doing very well. He is a natural retriever, has a solid natural point, is very buddy and is calm when off the field. He will make a great dog.WP_20160521_18_31_25_Pro
