We are Hunting Addicts and we enjoy hunting anything and everything we can. We have plenty of stories and experiences that will help you pass the time until hunting season begins.
Let me introduce our hunting group to you, so you can relate to our stories and understand the relationship that we share. To some hunting is a hobby, but to us hunting is an obsession!
I am Travis and I am the nerdy one that put this site together. I am the youngest of the Jacobson boy’s, but my claim to fame is I was the first to tag a deer. I love the outdoors, I love going out in the woods and seeing nature close up. Oftentimes as I hike around in the deep woods I wonder if I am the only person that has ever been in that exact spot. I love to watch animals in their natural environment and see how they interact with each other. I enjoy hunting not only because it helps provide for my family, but because of the interactions I have with those that I go hunting with. We have the best time together and we look forward to the big hunts every year. I am an archery hunter and enjoy going on the archery deer and Archery Elk hunts every fall. I enjoy rifle hunting as well, but since we have to choose in Utah I prefer archery over rifle. I have a beautiful wife and daughter that humor me by going out to a local elk farm every couple of weeks and look at the elk. My daughter is 15 months, but she is learning how to bugle already. You can never teach them too early. My wife and I will have our first son August of 2008, we are going to name him Hunter due to my obsession. I love hunting and I am excited to share my stories and experiences with you on this site!
Jason is the oldest Jacobson brother and he is the technology nut of the group. If there is a new hunting gadget you can count on Jason to have it. He also updates all of his hunting clothes every year, basically spending a ton of money at hunting stores. I love being his younger brother because I get all of his year old gear for free. Jason is probably the best shot in the group, other than Fred, and has had a lot of success up hunting. He shoots every Friday in a local shooting club and is improving all the time. Recently he pulled a Robin Hood and shot one of his arrows through another one of his arrows, you can’t beat that grouping!
Allen is the longest tenured Brother-in-law and has been around the family since we were young. He was Jason’s friend growing up and no one knew he had an interest in our sister. He married into the family and took up hunting as soon as he could. He is the spiritual one of our group and sometimes that isn’t to his hunting benefit. He is still waiting for his first kill, however for Allen it is truly not about the animals. He enjoys the wilderness and the surroundings that hunting provides for him. He is also in the shooting league with Jason and is getting better with his bow every week. We are all a little nervous for Allen to hit something since he is color blind. He has a hard time seeing red and green, so tracking a deer will be very interesting.
Shane is the middle Jacobson brother. If you have ever been up hunting and found an arrow stuck in the ground, or laying in the middle of nowhere chances are it is Shane’s. I think he holds an unofficial record of arrows he has lost in a season. No shot is a bad shot and he has the lack of arrows to prove it. Another great quality of Shane’s is his ability to find trees that are about to fall down and help them with the process. He is a great hunter and has had a lot of success. He makes it light and fun while still respecting the wilderness and pushing himself to get better.
Garrett is the newest addition to the hunting group and brings instant credibility. Garrett is a farm boy and has had experience hunting his whole life. He brings a lot of enthusiasm to the group and we look forward to hunting with him in the future. He has had a lot of success out hunting and we are always entertained by his stories. During our last hunt we got stuck in the middle of a rain storm and had to hike back to camp soaking wet. We had a great time laughing and cracking jokes the whole time. He is not a technology whiz so we will hopefully be able to teach him about this thing called the internet, and have him share his stories with us.
Fred is the father of this hunting group and brings years of experience and countless stories to the group. His actual name is Tim, but we all call him Fred. Our wives often contemplate why in the world we call him Fred, it is difficult to explain, but just know that Fred is one of the greatest hunters in the woods. He has hunted since he was a child, and has had a lot of success hunting. He loves to go out in the woods and spend time with his son’s and that is the main reason why he hunts. He will often pass up deer and elk because they are too small and it drives me crazy. The deer he passes up are big and I would love to mount any one of them on my wall. He has hunted all over Utah and Colorado and has had some incredible experiences while hunting. Like Garrett, we are teaching him about the internet and hopefully he will contribute more and share his stories with us.
This is our hunting group. We bring different skills and talents to the group, but mainly we just have a lot of fun! We hope you enjoy our stories and can see how much we love hunting. We are truly Addicted to Hunting and we want to share this obsession with you.
