Team Outback Outdoors Gives Back – Adam Wells helps the CDOW with Turkey Conservation

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Wild Turkeys would be nearly extinct if it were not for our state game agencies working so hard to re-establish wild turkeys into suitable habitat.  I have been able to assist the Colorado Division of Wildlife several times over the last few years in this process of trapping, processing and relocation wild turkeys. The trap is set over a bait site in an area with an abundant wild turkey population. Once the turkeys are routinely feeding at the bait site under the net trap a day is organized to do the actual trap.  It takes a lot of labor as once the net is dropped the turkeys need to be wrestled down and pinned by hand in the trap to minimize any injury to the birds.  It takes a while to work the birds out of the net, once they are out they get placed in a box and are then processed.

The processing of the turkeys involves drawing blood, getting fecal samples and tagging.  The blood and fecal samples are rushed to a lab to be scanned for any dieses that could hinder the turkeys from establishing new and vibrant populations and also to be sure there are no new dieses being introduced into an area that could harm other birds or wildlife in the relocation area.  Once the test results are completed, typically about 24 hours, and the results are negative the birds are shipped to their release location and we have another population of wild turkeys to enjoy.

Volunteering time and knowledge with our state’s Game and Fish agencies is rewarding and fun. For me I enjoy knowing I am doing a part, even if it is a small part to help promote and preserve our wildlife and sporting traditions for generations yet to come.

Outback Outdoors has New Look and Feel for 2011 – Jim Brennan’s New Webisode is Live

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

2011 is in full swing and Outback Outdoors (as promised) has some great new and exciting hunting action lined up for your convenient web-based hunting entertainment. You will immediately notice a few new and different things about Team OO in 2011. First the addition of new OO Team member Dave Beronio (who actually has been an unofficial OO team member for 2 years) and a new intro and format.
As the ORIGINAL western hunting webisode, Outback Outdoors has moved AWAY from trying to mimic a “TV” hunting show which shows a lot more than just the hunt (i.e. the traveleling, fueling up, filler footage, etc..), towards more small action packed clips with adrenaline action in smaller bite sized bits.
We kick this format (and our season) off with an exciting hunt with Jim Brennan and our good friend Rockie Jacobsen from Bugling Bulls Game Calls bowhunting for HUGE black bears in Alberta Canada. Please join us in 2011 (as I am playing catch up from having shoulder surgery) for some upcoming awesome mule deer, elk, antelope, and whitetail hunting action, available to you at www.outbackoutdoors.net 24/7.
*NOTE* For your best viewing experience (depending on your interent access and speed) start the video download process and then pause it allowing the video to load to 3/4 or more. This works best to avoid stutters or pauses caused by slower internet access speeds.
Thanks again,

Dave Beronio of Team OO works the 2011 Sheep Show with Wildlife Revolutions

Monday, February 14th, 2011
The 2011 Sheep Show in Reno, NV was a huge hit! Here is a note from Outback Outdoors Team member Dave Beronio.
We just wanted to thank those who attended the Sheep Show in Reno and stopped in to say hi at the Wildlife Revolutions booth.  Here are a few pictures of how the displays turned out for those of you who weren’t able to make it.  It was a pleasure seeing everyone, but for those of you we did not get to see this weekend… may we meet on the mountain sometime soon.

Thanks again

Whitetail Deer Hunting – Team OO Member Adam Wells Practices Herd Management

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

2011 continues to be a great year for me. After my Mountain Lion hunt in western Colorado, I headed out to Swanson Lake Ranch in southwest Nebraska with my good friend and camera man for Outback Outdoors Kyle Sanderson to hunt the late white-tail doe season.  Kyle had only a couple days that he could get away from work so I did my best to put Kyle in the best stands.

The first day I managed to harvest a nice fat white tail doe and was hoping that Kyle would have similar luck. As it turned out, Kyle was close to getting one that evening but everyone knows how hunting goes, sometimes it just doesn’t quite work out.

The next afternoon, would be Kyle’s evening to harvest.  This was Kyle’s first bow kill, I can’t tell you how happy and excited I was for Kyle’s success.  This is what is truly special about what I am able to do in my job as a guide and outfitter and through Outback Outdoors is to give people a positive introduction to the outdoors and  pass on the years of knowledge to those newer to the sport than myself.

Congrats Kyle.

Dave Beronio – New member of Team Outback Outdoors – If you have payed any attention to Team OO’s hunting videos in the past 2 years, Dave Beronio is not a new name. We are officially announcing Dave Beronio as the newest member to team Outback Outdoors!

Dave and Trevon have been hunting partners (when time and tags allowed) since before OO was in existent. Dave and Trev have hunted together on numerous occasions but it all started when Trev was still the archery Co-Host on “The Best of the West” TV show and they both drew quality mule deer tags in Nevada.

To find out more about Dave Beronio, a true bowhunting monster, stay tuned to the Outback Outdoors website for his blogs and watch him crush some great trophy animals in the backcountry!

We just have to get a Hoyt into his hands!!
