Missing his stache and his shexy ashhhh 😅🙊😂 🍑. -
@rys_above_adventures is at the coast again and well, season is upon us. As much as it sucks cause I can’t go with him freely as I would like, remembering his WHY has kept me grounded of supporting his absence.
As some of you know, we started a new embark that is being planted/being harvested as an outfitter company/guiding service, @silverwing_outfitters .This season is gonna be a huge for both of us as it starts the endeavors of what my husband’s ultimate dream and vision holds. Learning the waters, flight patterns, studying, researching the coastal waters; needless to say it takes a lot for the fowl life. -
I’m so grateful to have my best friend be as much as an advocate for the outdoors as I am as it’s such a bonding experience. But I’m so grateful for his heart ♥️ and his drive to chase his dream and chase those salty tails 🤪👊🏼💥. You enjoy that salt life and grow while doing so babe. Have a blast, catch some ducks, cancel some flights and I’ll see ya back Sunday. Little man I love you!! #armadillohatco#sitkagear#husbandandwife#fowllife#fowlhunter#waterfowlway#chasedreams#live#strive#drive#survive#scouting#guide#outfitter#saltyducks#coastalwaters#dreams#vision#coupleswhohunt#itsinmynature#whatgetsyououtdoors
I was incredibly humbled and honored to be a guest on the most recent episode of the @bearhuntingmag podcast. In my opinion @clay_newcomb (the publisher and editor of @bearhuntingmag) is producing some of the finest hunting related content in the country •
This was a truly meaningful and nuanced conversation that I was privileged to be a part of. If you are at all interested in what I’ve been up to or how I look at the world, I can’t think of a finer way to explore that than by listening to this podcast. I really felt that it was a great example of two folks, from seemingly disparate places, finding common ground in the things that matter most to them. You can find it wherever you get podcasts or I’ve included a link in my bio.
Summer is winding down, but it’s still HOT. Beat the heat by firing up the smoker and trying my recipe for whole smoked duck. Pulled pork is played and your whack neighbor knows all about beer can chicken. Step your game up with wild game. Link in bio.

I’ve found that with anything less than a headshot, squirrels will often be able to scamper away before you get to where they hit the ground. I’ve had to blood trail more than one of these guys. That’s exactly what happened this morning. I get to the base of the tree, find 2 drops of blood and no tree ninja. I walked circles and couldn’t find him. Called Ammo the duck dog in and told him to “fetch it up” and he found it within seconds, not ten feet from where I was standing. •
Ammo is starting to get a touch of salt and pepper in his coat, but he’s still got the goods. The only bad thing about a dog is that it doesn’t live for 50 years.

I haven’t been posting for the last few weeks because I’ve been busy trying to get our latest project completed. Well, she’s ready and we call her The Black Duck Bungalow. We were able to purchase and renovate the home next door to Black Duck Revival and it’s now available to rent as a base of operations for all of your outdoor adventures. Located in the heart of some of the best duck hunting opportunities in the country. Link to rental opportunities for Black Duck Revival and The Bungalow in bio.
I was lucky enough to be asked to be a guest again on the Bryant Land Country Podcast. Conversations with AB3 are always fun and this one was no exception. We talked about turkey hunting, cooking wild game, and some new projects I’m working on at Black Duck Revival. If you’re interested, you can find the podcast on whatever platform you like most or you can use the link in my bio.

I’ve kind of been amazed at how much I’ve enjoyed picking up my old, fat risered Ben Pearson recurve again. Years ago I used to regularly walk the woods outside my house with this bow, shooting leaves and shadows. I got fairly salty up to about 20 yds. •
That was a while ago and I definitely am not achieving that kind of accuracy currently, but the process of redeveloping those muscles and instincts feels really appropriate for me right now. It seems like the right time to be shooting a recurve bow. •
Recent conversations with @roaming_stoic and binge listening to @bearhuntingmag podcast has me excited to try and hunt trad bow style this season. If I’m not ready come season I’ll hunt with a compound, but for now I’m going to enjoy the process.

I’ve written about a quick excursion myself and my “hunting mentee” Chris took into the forests of the Ozarks this past weekend. I’ll be posting regular updates as Chris and I work towards fulfilling his goal of becoming a successful hunter. I’ve also included a link in the article to a Hunting 101 syllabus I created to help guide us on this journey. I’d love input from anyone about how the “class” can be crafted to achieve the best results. Link to the article and the syllabus is in the bio.

Sumac-ade. This is one of the easiest, most accessible, and tastiest ways to get into foraging. If you live in the eastern half of the United States it should be easy to gather and even easier to whip up this refreshing summer treat. Recipe is up on the BDR website. Link in bio.
