Campfire Camaraderie

Just as the campfire back at any hunting camp is the setting for many lively discussions, shared experiences, and riveting storytelling; this blog is designed to allow me to share with you all of my latest hunts, articles, video or TV projects, and all the other exciting things happening with me, Trevon Stoltzfus and

Good old days

As I sit here "healin' up" I was looking through some old pics and videos of when I was a little spunkier and younger, I thought it would be kind of fun to post a few pics and a video of me back when I was a lot tougher and healed quicker. The music on the video is my good friend Michael Martin Murphey singing the intro to the TV Show "The Best of the West." click on the pictures to view me riding in Winslow, AZ on a bull called Unicorn owned by Casper Baca Rodeo Company. I believe I was 84 points.


As an active outdoorsie (is that a real word??) guy and the winter here in Colorado being so harsh this year I have enjoyed keeping fit by playing indoor soccer. Tuesday night Feb 20th I "tweeked" my left knee playing in a game. Having had 2 ACL reconstructions on that very knee you could say I was "a bit" concerned. The knee was locked in a slightly bent position and I could neither bend or straighten it at all (very painful).

I was fortunate to get right in to see an orthapedic surgeon who promptly scheduled me for surgery (arthroscopic) on Thursday morning. Thank God everything went well and the surgery was a quick 22 minutes where the doc fixed the meniscus and told me my ACL was still OK !!

YEEEEHAAAWWW!! I can start getting ready for outdoor soccer which starts in the middle of March.

Well for now I have to lay around with my leg in the air for 3-4 days to keep the swelling down. My wife has been awesome and even built me a little "fort" with a gate and all where I can keep working and my leg elevated. Avery my 16month old daughter thinks it is pretty cool to try and "break" into my fort and bounce on my lap. I will keep you all posted on my progress, as I start some physical rehab next week.

"The Western Way"

I recently received a video from an outfitter called Mile High Outfitters where a friend of mine Amy Martin with Frontier Outdoors Production had used a song that I had written in their promotional DVD. My buddy Jobe Lewis performed it and it was really amazing the way she edited the video to the music as it made the tone of the video and the song, in my biased opinion awesome! Click on "The Western Way" to watch the video.
