First Season Duck Hunting
This was my first season duck hunting and I have to say I’m hooked even with two whole trips under my belt I had a blast. I really lucked out on my first trip and got to head out with some seasoned hunters and good friends from Flatpit.
The Road Less Traveled, Las Vegas
Leaving from Kit Fox Outfitters in Ramona CA I headed northeast past Ranchita and into Borrego Springs and Anza Borrego State Park, California’s largest state park. I always enjoy this drive through Warner Springs, and it has some great views as you drop down the grade and into the desert. Plus, a nice drive through Anza Borrego and down some pretty worn desert roads.
Survival Starts at Home: Fire
Survival Starts at Home: Fire, well, well, well, fire is a touchy subject as I sit here writing this and California has some major wildfires going on.

We Are Back Open!
Good news we are back open for business at our store front in Ramona! We are super stoked to share this and look forward to seeing you soon. That being said we have a couple small changes since while we are open, we are following all of the County of San Diego’s guidelines to keep the shop and everyone safe.
Hope Everyone is Well
So, first Blog post in a little over a month, sorry about that. It has been a really trying time and we are rolling with it. But we have been working to adjust to the new way of operating and getting into routines as I’m sure all of you have by now. I’m getting back int to the routine of writing Blogs, haha.
Getting Creative with the Outdoors
Getting creative with your trails and hikes, this shelter in place and social distancing thing has got me thinking we need to be more creative with how we enjoy the outdoors and about getting back to the idea of exploring.
