Uncle & Nephew’s Turkey Hunt

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Hunting Reports | Posted on 19-05-2019

Cole and his uncle, Jim, joined us for a turkey hunt that they will never forget! It was filled with a lot of firsts. The turkeys were very vocal Saturday morning. We had multiple birds working towards us, but the hens kept cutting them off before they’d get to us. With this happening, we changed our plan and went after them. The first stalk we got within 20 yards of a Tom all fanned out. This was Cole’s first time being within range of a big Tom. Unfortunately, his shot didn‘t connect on the big thunder chicken, as he was full of excitement. Soon after the shot, we heard more birds gobble and we beelined it towards them. When we reached the edge of the field, the only way to get close to them was to do an Army Crawl for 200 yards through the tall grass. We snuck up to within 20 yards of three red heads and they didn’t have a clue that we were there. I told Cole, “When I yelp, they’re going to pop their heads up and when they do, fire away!” He gave one out of three of them a hair cut, as he just shot over its head. A successful hunt isn’t about harvesting an animal, it’s about being in the outdoors with family and friends carrying out the hunting tradition. At the end of the hunt, Cole and Jim kept saying that the Army Crawl was their favorite thing, because they never hunted turkeys like that before. We’re looking forward to having these dedicated hunters back next April for Youth Turkey. 😁🦃#UncleAndNephewTurkeyHunt #HuntingTradition #FifieldOutfitters

David & Colleen’s Ice Fishing Adventure

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Fishing Reports | Posted on 01-03-2019

It was an absolute pleasure to have Colleen and her husband, David, join us on the hardwater. The day was filled with flag after flag, but is was a bass and small pike kinda day. Dave jigged up some bass and a nice perch and Colleen jigged up some bass as well. For breakfast, we cooked up eggs and bacon and also enjoyed glazed donuts. At lunch time we fired the grill up for one of our fan favorites, venison, bear, bacon cheeseburgers with potato chips. For dessert, was Colleen’s delicious chocolate chip cookie bars. 🍪 😋 We shared stories and laughs throughout the day. A huge thank you to little brother Chris for helping out! We look forward to getting this awesome couple out on the bass boat when open water comes! 🎣#GuidedIceFishingAdventure #AwesomeCouple #NYSLicensedGuide#FifieldOutfitters

Father & Son’s Hardwater Adventure

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Fishing Reports | Posted on 22-02-2019

 

Shawn is a Navy veteran and dedicated father who booked an ice fishing adventure for his son Chase and him. Chase’s two favorite fish to target are pike and perch, so we strung tip-ups for poor man’s shrimp and big toothy critters. Before we could get half of our tip-ups set-up, the flags started popping like popcorn! Chase was pulling little pike and bass out of the holes left and right! After everything was set-up, I fired the grill up for some bacon and egg sandwiches. Around late morning, one of the perch flags went up and Chase pulled up a huge jumbo and it was his biggest perch caught to date! A little bit later on, I looked over and one of our toothy critter flags had tripped and was taking line like a drag car running the quarter mile. When we got to the flag, it had stripped all the line down to the knot. Chase, like a seasoned veteran, fought this epic water wolf back to the hole. Just as it reached the hole, bubbles started rising from below and the next thing we knew, this big ‘ol gator head was heading up the ice tube! As soon as I got my hands on him, he was ours and the smile on Chase’s face was priceless! This northern was then released to fight another day. Afterwards, I fired the grill up again for some venison bacon cheeseburgers. 😋 We had a fun filled day with lots of fish caught, beautiful weather, and memories made to last a lifetime! We look forward to seeing these guys on the bass boat come open water.

Chris & Bill’s Bow Hunt

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Hunting Reports | Posted on 24-10-2018

Nephew and uncle, Chris and Bill, joined us for a two day bear and buck hunt. The last day, Bill saw a good shooter buck, but it never came close enough to present him a shot. We look forward to having these guys in camp again to seal the deal. Chris, thank you for your service!  🇺🇸 #BowHunt #FifieldOutfitters

 

Colleen’s Bow Hunt

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Hunting Reports | Posted on 22-10-2018

 

It was great having Colleen join us to pursue some big game in the Catskill Mountains. She is definitely the definition of a true outdoors woman. Her experience, knowledge, and respect for the sport is top-notch. She certainly put her time in, as she sat all day long for three straight days. The weather conditions weren’t ideal and with the October lull happening, the animals weren’t moving a lot. However, on her afternoon hunt on the last day, she ended up seeing a bruiser buck cruising. Unfortunately, he was 100 yards away and never ended up coming down her trail. We’d like to thank Colleen for all the time she volunteers to help new hunters get into the sport. She instructs Hunter Education courses and works with a program called, Becoming an Outdoors-Woman in New York (BOW.) Any interested ladies, please check this awesome BOW program out. Colleen, we’re looking forward to getting on the hard water with you in a few months! #BowHunt #FifieldOutfitters
