What you need for Waterfowl in Utah

Smith & Edwards is lucky to be right next door to Willard Bay, so we get to hear fishing reports from all types of anglers. Even more than that, we’re just a couple miles from the Harold Crane Waterfowl Management Area, right behind Willard Bay, which is a great spot for ducks: you can bring a boat or even walk right in.

Freeze-Dried Food Review: Try something new

Some of us don’t like change. I sometimes lean on tried and trusted gear for my outdoor adventures. I might be weird, but I like eating freeze-dried backpacking foods, especially the flavors from Mountain House. I have favorite flavors like Spaghetti, Beef Stroganoff, Lasagna, and Chili Mac. These meals always go with me on backpacking and hunting trips. This trip I wanted to try something new. (Totally out of character….just ask my wonderful wife). I went for Biscuits & Gravy, and Granola with Blueberries. Mike’s Continue reading →
