Kayak Rack

This is what we came up with to solve the problem of storing the yaks. It is built with pvc piping and old fire hose that had been taken out of service. It has held up reasonably well.

The season opener didn't disappoint. This trip had many firsts. The first time the a/c was needed during the hunt, the first time to pheasant hunt in a t-shirt, the first time my shotgun malfunctioned and became a single shot, and my first sharp-tailed grouse (of 4) and the first time our group brought their own dogs. There were lots of birds, great food and wine and great deserts.
Grouse hunting is a special type of hunting and the badlands is the perfect backdrop. You earn every bird you get and each one is special.
