In turkey hunting there are several variations of challenges called “slams”. The most difficult of them requires you to hunt in 49 states and is called the US Super Slam. In 49: Day Seven by Pale Horse Productions, we follow the US Super Slam journey of two hunters as they attempt to fill eight tags in four states within ten days.
The ups and downs from Naoto Aoki as he attempts to harvest his first ram.
With each summit comes newfound hope that a big, mature ram is within view. Although I’ve yet to experience that moment, I do not turn a blind eye to all that surrounds me.

Follow along as Chris Gardner walks you through his step-by-step method to create your own wooden coasters from start to finish:
I especially like when I can start and complete an entire project in my limited shop time, so I’m always raiding my scrap bins to see what I can create. Recently, I came across an odd length of chechen wood, and within forty-five minutes, I’d turned it into a set of stout wooden coasters. Here’s how you can make your own, too.
Follow Benjamin Hardman as he traverses North of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier in Southern Iceland over rugged highland terrain to find unique visuals for his imagery:

Join Nathanael Billings as he takes you on a tour of his favorite spots in Washington's Olympic National Park:
Lately I’ve been finding myself in the mountains more and more... Of all the places to choose from in Washington, I always find myself roaming around Olympic National Park. Its uniqueness is only trumped by the solitude you find while walking its steep hillsides. You see, ONP (Olympic National Park) may be one of the most popular national parks in the United States...

Learn from the the staff at Seacat Creative as they explain the most common hunting mistakes they encounter.
"Our team at Seacat Creative is collective of hunters and outdoorsmen and women. There really isn’t a time of year that one of us isn’t on a hunt or prepping for the next one. Water-cooler talk on Monday morning is far too often composed of the previous hunts mishaps. The unsuccessful hunts typically share some common mistakes that our successful hunts tend to lack. So we compiled a list of the common mistakes we here at Seacat Creative have gotten pretty good at making over the years. Try to avoid these mistakes if you want to end your next hunt with a notched tag."
Follow Justin Block as he encounters the men and machines unique to the Race of Gentlemen:
I thought I stepped into a James Dean movie. Hoards of vintage motorcycles and cars came screaming from under the boardwalk and onto the beach. Drivers were adorned in club sweaters, leather, denim and racing numbers. Some could have played the good guys - others their rivals. Crowds lined the boardwalk and streets to catch a glimpse of the ear-splitting machines and the characters racing them to the water."The Race of Gentlemen" is held just twice a year - each time on an opposing coast. At its core, it’s a period correct drag race on the beach featuring American-made hot rods and motorcycles from the 30’s, 40's & 50’s.
Read how Allison Kelly Howe and Nathanael Billings battled the weather to take in the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park.
Being from the Pacific Northwest, where we live under a perpetual ceiling of clouds, I assumed anywhere in California would be sunny. I didn't even bother to check the forecast before Nathan and I made plans and packed up the car to road trip from Seattle to Yosemite National Park. I was so excited to have been granted the time off of work that I was convinced the weather would be on my side. Needless to say I was incredibly naive.
Discover what adventures the fringes of the Tennessee-Georgia state line hold for Parker Hilton and Jenelle Kappe.
“What do you think about Tennessee?”
“My words hung on the line for a moment, as if they took an extra couple of seconds to zip across our home state of New Jersey. To put it frankly, my fiancé, Jenelle, and myself had both been in New Jersey for far too long. It was the longest stretch we’d spent there in years. Being pretty adamant travelers and van-lifers, stagnation was never really our thing.”
Explore Peru by way of motorcycle with Charley Zheng.
With one hand on the clutch, the other on the throttle, my left foot balanced precariously on the ground, and my right foot on the rear brake to keep the motorcycle from rolling back down the cobblestone incline, I attempted what must have felt like my hundredth start up the road — wet, black, and shiny from a fresh rain. Other motorists swirled around me, looking curiously at me with muffled laughter in their eyes.
Greg Hatten pursues the elusive steelhead in the Wallowas of the Pacific Northwest.
Over two hundred years ago the summer home of the Nez Perce Native American Indians was in the steep mountains and deep valleys of Northeastern Oregon. It’s in the Wallowa Range in the Eagle Cap Wilderness and it’s almost as remote and obscure now as it was back then.
“You’re invited back to the ranch, you in?” My best friend Andy texted. I hesitated.
Most hunters wouldn’t think twice before saying yes. Hunting Texas quail and predators on a 180,000 acre private cattle ranch is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most. It’s a place where they filmed “No Country for Old Men”, near the border of Mexico. You just drive 10 hours southwest of Dallas, Texas to the middle of nowhere, take a left on an unmarked gravel road and then go an hour further.
