After his hero and mentor, Tony Alvis, tragically passed away in a 2005 landslide, Graham Goodfield stepped in to run Los Padres Outfitters. Graham has dedicated his life to exposing others to the wonders of the backcountry and passing the cowboy spirit down to future generations.

Recently, the Kansas City Star published a great article; I’ll wait if you want to click over and read it, just make sure you come back: For many, hunting is more than just pulling the trigger The article outlines several folks who started a tradition of hunting pheasants on Kansas’ opening weekend every year.  A group…

My wife is a saint.  She’s a country girl from Auburndale, Florida, but I don’t think she even realized what she was getting herself into when we got together . . . Family vacations have become “Family Outdoor Experiences” – from bonefish in the Bahamas to snook in Sarasota to Wyoming whitetails to mallards in Arkansas…
