Welcome to Rokslide’s blog—the new place to connect with the DIY hunting world.
So what is a blog, really? A quick Google search nails it:
“A blog is a web site on which an individual or group of users record opinions, information, etc. on a regular basis.”
Simple as that, I guess.
The Rokslide staff has put months of thought and planning into this project. While I’m a mule deer hunter at heart and this may set the tone of the blog, it will be more than just mule deer. Rokslide has attracted many of the top hunters, manufacturers, and writers in the DIY hunting world. This blog is going to connect you with them and the latest techniques, gear, and hot topics out there, helping you to be a better hunter by this fall!
However, if you’re a hard-core buck hunter and want to join those who’ve spent decades pursuing one of North America’s greatest trophies, this will be the place for you. I’ll share never before published details and stories on all of my big mule deer, which at last count is approaching twenty. But more than just me, we will connect with others who we consider are at the top of their mule-deer game, expanding your learning opportunities. I guarantee if you’ll stick around, you will become a better buck hunter and a better hunter all-around.
So why a blog hosted by Robby Denning?
The good Lord planted my family right here in good old Southeast Idaho over hundred years ago; I come from a rich heritage of mule deer country and hunters. My grandpa, father, and three uncles were all buck hunters and I started accompanying them when I was 8 years old.
Later, as a young man, I became inspired by the great deer hunters and writers of yesteryear. That spark grew into a wildfire and at age 25, I gave up the pursuit of all other species to hunt big mule deer. It was a decision I’ll never regret and has allowed me to explore the world of mule deer to a depth only a few modern hunters have.
I’ve taken four bucks over 200”, two over 220”, and a dozen or more good bucks in the 170-190” class, all on DIY opportunities I created myself while raising a family. If you’ve got a big mule deer on your life’s “To-Do” list, I can help you accomplish that goal.
I’ve also operated a successful scouting service for 17 years, helping hundreds of other hunters find good places to hunt in Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and Nevada; In addition, I’ve ran a private land fair-chase outfitting operation since 2001. These two businesses have helped me further understand what hunters must do to be successful. I will bring this wealth of experience and more to the Rok Blog.
We’ve created a blog format that allows you to participate in a comments section with myself and other readers. This will become a community of hunters learning from hunters.
So join in, as we teach, learn, and inspire— after all, isn’t that what Rokslide’s about?
