Yes ladies and gentlemen, that's about all I can say about last week at the 11th Annual Hunt in Las Cruces! I can't thank everyone enough who made this hunt awesome for myself, and for everyone else.

Steve Dillon and I touched down Tuesday afternoon in El Paso and got all of our stuff into the hotel. Wednesday I hunted with Stu Farish and also Troy (DestertRam). We made about 10-11 stands with Stu popping a coyote in mid afternoon. And I must say, the new Hornady Superformance did an EXCELLENT job on the coyote! I was really impressed. Toward sundown, I missed one at about 80 yards. angry Oh well, can't get em all. It was still a great day of hunting with Stu and Troy. Thanks guys.


The next day I hunted again with Stu and Jeepdude came along as well. We spotted a coyote on the first stand walking in, and that was the only one we saw all day. Stu did manage to smack a jackrabbit mid afternoon. Again, another fun time of calling. I hope we can do it again next year fellas.

Friday I finally got to lower the boom on a nice female! I was lucky enough to hunt with Al Morris and Scottmilk9 of Speacialized Dynamics. We made about 12 stands with two that came in on the same stand. I was able to lay the smack down on the female. I was really hoping that Scott could get a shot at a coyote later in the day but the dogs just didn't want to come in. They loved hearing themselves sing, but didn't want to come in and investigate. You can check out the hunt on FOXPRO'S Furtaker's Vol. 3! A big thank you to Scott and Al for another awesome day of hunting. I hope we can get out next year as well!



The banquets were absolutely great. The food was great after a full day of hunting with nothing to eat. The seminars were very cool as well.




Another thank you to Crossman for donating air rifles for the kids. It was really cool to see their eyes light up when Barry was handing them out.


This is just a sample of the raffle items. I couldn't wrap my mind around all the great things that were donated by our sponsors to be raffled off. It was incredible.





I finally got to attend the egg shoot. I now regret not entering to shoot. It really looked like a lot of fun, but I'm glad I got some of it on film! Here are the top 3 winners of the Egg shoot.


A BIG Congrats to Jeff Mock for receiving this years Will Craig Award! Great Job Jeff!!


After the hunt Saturday, on Sunday, Steve and I were lucky enough for Barry Stewart (rockinbbar) to show us around the area a bit before our flight left on Monday. I love this place!!! thumbup

Duffman, just like the rest of the foxpro folks, you are top notch. I had a great time hunting with you and Al. Wish we could have put some more fur down, but thats the way it goes sometimes.

Next year we'll have to get out and do it again. Thanks and be safe.

Thanks for changing the pics Stu!

Scott, most definitely! I want to see what that Grendal can do!


Thanks again Barry! We also enjoyed you showing us around on Sunday.

I'll check with the guys on the Southwest Field Office idea. thumbup

I'm not into the whole blood sucking thing like Buffy. Not sure where she got the bad genes from. unsure lol

And I forgot to mention, it was also a blast to hang out with Cal and Todd from Predator Pursuit in the evenings at the banquets. Even though they are a bit goofy. tt2 w00t grin

Hey, Duff glad you had a good time down here. It was a good time hunting with you too. It would be a blast to see you next year, and maybe we can bring a few dogs out of the desert.
