Alaskan Fox Kit: While conducting field research at a remote field station on the North Slope of Alaska, a frequent visitor to the camp, local celebrity "Billy the Kit" can often be seen hanging around the boat dock, lounging in the sun on the gravel pad, or hopping around the tundra in search of voles. In an area where there are less than 30 people in a 100 mile radius, Billy provides some fun entertainment for the researchers here at the station. .

Run of the bull!: It was our first trip up to Canada in search of bull trout! We prepared for months and researched all we could online about the massive and elusive trout. This is a picture of the first Bull Trout of the trip that I caught on an 8 wt fly rod. I spotted the fish in a six foot crystal clear deep hole, that was surrounded by log jams. I slowly snuck up on it, and army crawled my way along logs and branches. The moment I got it on, it was the most insane fight I have ever had. The fish took me down river, sprinting at times, nearly 200 yards until my friend and I finally netted it! At one point, the fish swam under a log with too fast of a current for it to ever come back upstream under the log. We had to put the whole rod and reel under water, under the log, and amazingly the fish stayed on! When we finally landed it, we were elated. I hope to have another fight like that in my life, but I'm not sure if its possible. It was the most exciting and exhilarating catch of my life! Here is a video of the fight if you are interested: http://youtu.be/gRAR8oocfUw. Photo submitted by Jason Gruber on Sep 16, 2014 12:45 AM
Boulder Mountain Fishing: Fun time with family and friends up on the boulder mountain. Its always an amazing time when you find yourself in the great outdoors.

: Adam my name is Clayton Jones, last year i drew a muzzy Antelope tag here in Utah. The weather was crazy windy with rain and snow. The Antelope were running wild. They could be miles away when spotted, if they could see a vehicle they started to run. I had multiple stalks every day only to end with antelope running away. It was fun to see them rutting does and fighting. Herd bucks will run off smaller bucks for hours on end, very cool to watch. I ended up with the best opportunity on day 6 of the hunt. A nice buck and 10 does tucked away in a canyon with lots of trees surrounding them giving me the upper hand. I was able to stalk in unnoticed, with what felt like 100 mph winds in my face. I was at an elevated position in the trees and guessed right. All the Antelope walked right under me after watching them for over an hour. I was able to harvest my first Antelope buck with 1 shot. My dad was with me wich made this hunt one of my favorites. I've been a fan of your show since you started. I am pretty sure this is the only muzzy utah antelope thats been submitted. I could be wrong though. Anyway i hope to make your show. I would really like to tell you that i do appreciate all your hard work you do for wildlife here in utah and for producing the best show on tv. Thanks. .

: Hello Adam, This year was crazy I was hunting near Morgan Ut early in the archery hunt on a spring creek & before dark had a sow with 2 yearlings come in when they were about 12 yards away I climbed up the tree a little ways and hollered at them the frightened bears all scattered but the one yearling jumped up the tree with me just 3 feet away not knowing I was there. Notice my bow below the bear. It was an intense stand off for a couple of minutes before it climbed down and took off with mama bear. I decided to split as well. First time seeing bears in northern UT I think I'll start packing bear spray now ( although i had S/W when I climbed the tree so glad I didn't have to use it!!! Hunt ended this weekend as I switch gears and hunted in I (can't tell you canyon) on public land with my son Chandler as we bugled in this nice 4 pt for the freezer! We really enjoy your show!
