It's almost been a year ago that we lost Derek when he was shot in the line of duty.This past weekend Curtis Flemming, of The Fly Rod Chronicles, premiered his tribute to Derek Hotsinpiller episode in Bridgeport, WV. The tribute show took Dustin, Derek's older brother, and a friend to Brazos River Ranch, MN. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the event due to still being in FL, but many of my family members attended and they said it was great time and an awesome tribute!
Here is a short clip from the episode...
For more on this here is a link the to local new station that covered this event.

Wow, it's back to reality! We got back from a great vacation with a surprise this past weekend and school started yesterday. That means it's time to get back into the swing of things including blogging. After a two week absence TCT is back. I got my main trail cam back from repair this past weekend also so be looking for more pictures again soon. I did have a secondary trail cam running in its absence, it doesn't have the same range at night, but still did a good job in its absence.

|Looks like this button buck is getting a little ahead of himself.|
|Even after a few reports of bucks dropping their antlers early this year, it looks|
like there's still a few running around with both sides intact.

Here is hoping everyone had a great 2011 and an even better 2012. Now it is time to relax with my family on the beach and start the year out right with some surf fishing. Look for a few more salty posts as I left Foggy Mountain for the week and a new set of goals for 2012.
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.
