What sight are you guys using?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are so many options-fixed, adjustable, single, multi, scopes. The list seems to go on forever!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I absolutely love my Hogg Father with the double pin from @spothoggarchery . It is adjustable, easy to sight in and gives me a good spread on distance. Also American Made and extremely durable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment below with your configuration!

My Grandfather put down a great buck yesterday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He is 83 and still loves to hunt. He doesn’t get around as quickly as he used to, but he keeps pushing on, year after year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He was there every step of the way while Dad was introducing me to hunting. With their guidance, my passion for hunting took hold quickly, and deeply. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can’t wait to chase elk with Papa next month. It will surely be a good time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s that time of year again, where we hang up our bows and dust off our rifles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I still have plenty, all of them to be exact, of tags to be filled. I learned of a change to the regulations that allows cow elk harvest in a high density elk unit. So I’ll give a go with that. I also have another cow permit for eastern Montana that shouldn’t be terribly difficult to fill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I’m not yet worried about eating tag soup, there’s still lots of opportunities left. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Itching to get in the stand.

Trail cam pictures of these nice bucks are getting me excited to see them on the hoof.

While we have pictures of these, you never really know what will show up while you’re in the stand.

That’s what makes this so exciting!

The amount of beauty I come across while hunting is unmatched, indescribable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not only do I get to see so much of what Mother Nature has to offer, but I also get to spend tons of time with my gorgeous wife. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I guess you can say, the views out there never get old 😀. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@hpgmedia snapped this picture after a wild and exciting morning hunt. It didn’t come all the way together, but it was insane!

Dudes, find yourself a woman who can do it all. A woman that is just as beautiful in dirt and camo as she is in her Sunday’s finest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Boys and their toys...boys just get bigger and their toys just get more expensive!
I’m going to enjoy these little moments where he lets me sit and watch him play, because I know one day he will say “bye Mom I’m headed to the deer lease with my friends” 💙 #huntingrig #krw #kaseradventures #countrylivin #camorig #boysandtoys #huntingfam

I think it’s important to always look for the silver lining. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@hpgmedia snapped this picture at a pretty low point in our hunt. We had been chasing sporadic bugles for almost a week and had not even laid eyes on an elk. Several hours before this photo was taken, we packed a bivy camp 2.5 miles back into a deep canyon. We then hiked our asses off for many miles and hours to get to this spot we were resting at. It was a pretty physically intense day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We did all of this, and still hiked out of that canyon without seeing elk. I’m not sure what I was looking at or what I was saying, but I’m sure it was something along the lines of “There’s elk over the next ridge.” That’s kind of my motto out there. The momentum and excitement of a hunt can change in the blink of an eye and you always need to have your head in the right place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This series of events didn’t work out in our favor, but I was able to share the experience with two of my favorite people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A little side note, my bracelet says “unbreakable.” This just adds to the value of the photo. I wear the bracelet for a constant reminder to push through everything that is thrown my way. I’ve literally had shitty days turn around when I look at this cheap piece of rubber and remind myself that I can’t be broken. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is where I get lost to find myself. There’s something about moving yourself a few notches down the food chain that can really humble you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spend a great deal of time in the woods, and around every corner and over every ridge, I am still amazed at the beauty Mother Nature has to offer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you ever feel overwhelmed with life, if you feel like you’re suffocating with daily demands, do yourself a favor and go get lost. I promise, you will find YOURSELF and you will awaken a hunger that will never be fully satisfied. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Important stuff going on here. Priceless memories!

📸 @hpgmedia ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t get the backcountry off my mind. It was truly a blast introducing @huntingproductguru to the forest the way we did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just want to put this out here. I am so unbelievably proud of both Justin and @mrsdudethathunts. When the sounds of September start echoing across the canyon walls, I lose all sense of distance, and my pace tends to increase dramatically regardless of the terrain I’m in. Both of them not only kept up with me, but never once complained about the rugged, nasty crap I often ran us through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We haven’t drawn blood-YET, but we created countless lifelong memories on this trip. I hope everyone else has a season as rewarding as mine has already been.

It’s been a minute since my last intro & I’ve gained lots of new followers since then (THANK YOU!) so here is a little about me. My name is Lauren, I’m still Lauren Abel but in December I will be Lauren Barron! My fiancé Carson and I have been together for two years and have a nearly 11 month old son named Cash! We both love to hunt, watch Packers games (our wedding is at Lambeau), and run around with our little dude! I’m still mainly doing Couples, Family, Seniors, and Lifestyle photography but am looking forward to second shooting with my best friend Gabi (@gabrielle.e.photography )for weddings! Follow along as I grow in photography and email me if you are looking to capture some memories!! 📸💙•
