Well bummer, we never heard from our winner of the Huntin’ Fool Membership.  I even gave him an extra day.  He’s probably busy researching his upcoming hunts and missed the announcement.

So, it’s someone else’s luck day.  If you’re just tuning in, I reviewed Huntin’ Fool’s research service a few weeks ago.  I think they can really help the DIY hunter who doesn’t have a pile of free time to do his own research.  You can see that post here: Research Services—Worth the Cost?  Huntin’ Fool generously donated a one-year membership as they have several times before. This membership gives you a two-week jump on the data published in their hard-copy mag so you can start your research earlier.

I used to pull a random number from the entries according to contest rules.

Our lucky guy is

For the rest of you, stay close as I’ll be attending the SHOT show in Las Vegas this week.  If you’ve never heard of the SHOT Show, it’s the West’s biggest gathering of outdoor retailers highlighting the latest and greatest to come.  SHOT stands for “shooting & hunting outdoor trade” and describes the event perfectly. It is not open to the public but only to those working in the outdoor insdustry.  This is a rare opportunity to take a peek inside SHOT.

Stay tuned as I’ll be landing tomorrow in sin city and will start posting updates.

My partner Ryan Avery and more than a few of our prostaff are already there reviewing and posting up some of this year’s newest hunting gear.    You can follow them now on the Rokslide forums at

Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator

  2. Good morning Robby. I sent you an email the same time I posted on here. I will try again now. Let me know if it isn’t getting through. Thanks, Chad.
