The Missouri Doe

by Capt. Kevin Faver, Capt. Kirk Waltz, and Jeff Lageman

October means one thing: deer.  Cooler days, beautiful evenings, and the perfect environment for taking some brown down.  So what in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here? Why is it so muggy, hot, and nasty with temps in the high 80s?  It’s downright AWFUL.  But we’re not bitter!

Kevin definitely isn’t bitter, because he just returned from an outstanding trip to Missouri; he had several great stories for us, as well as some great tips.  For Jeff, he had lots of work on his plate for his food plots; he logged a bunch of tractor time keeping everything up to snuff, and was able to share a bunch of really good tips with us.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for great stuff all week…and be sure to send us your own great pics, stories, and questions.  We’d love to hear from you!


This is the book Captain Kirk Waltz said is ALWAYS with him: Gamebirds: A Guide to North American Species and Their Habits.  Published in 1961, Gamebirds is STILL the ultimate source of information when it comes to every species you need to know about.  Gamebirds is one of many volumes from the lavishly illustrated Golden Guide series. This book is an introduction to waterfowl, rails, shorebirds, pigeons, doves, and upland gamebirds. Identification of each bird is the main focus of the book. Local names, scientific names, weights, sizes, and flight speeds are also included. Conservation, migration, habitat improvement, extinct species, and threatened species are also mentioned. Bird watchers and hunters will find this book to be concise, informative, and useful. One Amazon reviewer said it best: “Informative, concise, and excellent illustrations. Great addition to my collection of Golden Guides. The older guides are superior to the new ones because the format and presentation are more reader friendly and accessible.”

The pressure washer has almost become a must-have tool these days.  Typically, we go for the biggest, baddest, most powerful unit we can get our hands on.  However, Capt. Kirk recommended that a light-duty electric pressure washer like his Clean Force 1400 was perfect for the vehicle, the boat, and the ATV.  Sub-1800psi units are powerful enough to clean everything, but not strong enough to blast through the finish of whatever you’re cleaning.  Best of all, you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for it.  Kirk got his at Home Depot; you can check all the different options they have for you right HERE
