Hello Wild World followers, my name is Jason Maure. I am from the Great White North, Canada. Actually I reside in the southern most part of Ontario, which probably puts most of you further north on the globe than myself. Residing just 45 minutes to the east of Detroit Michigan on the south shore of Lake St. Clair “small mouth bass capital of the continent“.
I share a country home with my wife and three children whom I intend to tell you adventures about. Lillian is our oldest, blessing us by arriving on the opening day of early goose season. Remington and Zachary soon fallowed after. We have two chocolate Labrador retrievers whom we breed, Sonoma and Tink. (Tink is the one in the picture with me) Continue reading
C’mon, go wander with me for a little while. My name is Gretchen Steele, but most folks just call me, “Wild Woman” You might be surprised where the journey will take us. I’ve been wandering the forests and the fields, the woods and the water, my entire life. Family legend has it that my first trip to the woods was when my mother loaded up a six week old infant and headed into the September woods to collect ginseng, golden seal, and early fall mushrooms.
I honestly cannot remember a time when I wasn’t spending my days out doors, exploring, hunting, fishing, gathering wild edible and medicinal plants. My parents were depression era children and not only did nothing go to waste in our household we learned to be very adept at “living out of the woods”.
Our tables were filled with whatever was in season, or whatever we had managed to preserve from the bountiful past seasons. Continue reading
Wow. So here we are, together over at the Wild World of CarrieZ! All silliness aside, there is something just a bit disturbing of how Carrie’s story, leading up to you and the entire world, is so very similar to my own. When Carrie issued her “Casting Call” for her Wild Team, of course I answered!

My name is Tyler Henderson. I live in Preston Idaho with my wife and three kids. My dad introduced me to the outdoors at a very young age. He bought me my first bow at the age of 5. Now over 30 years later I am still hooked on archery. Now I am trying to pass on my love for the outdoors and archery down to my family. I am also a certified bow hunting Ed instructor for the state of Idaho. I love passing on my knowledge to the next generation of hunters.
My main focus with archery is Bowhunting. I hunt a verity of animals through out any given year. I usually start out in the spring hunting turkeys and black bears. In the fall I start out hunting antelope then move on to mule deer and elk. Bow hunting elk is my number one passion and my most anticipated hunt of the year. I have been fortunate to harvest several Pope and Young quality animals including elk, mule deer, antelope, black bear, and MT lion. I have been fortunate to have a couple of my elk hunts published in Eastmans Bowhunting Journal. One goal that I have set for myself is to shoot one of every species in my home state of Idaho with archery equipment. A tall order but I am willing to try. Continue reading
I grew up camping and fishing in the Fort Worth area of Texas, however, I did not grow up hunting. My grandfather was a hunter, but he passed when I was 8 years old. I like to think he would have introduced me to hunting, but, it was such a “man’s world” at that point in time.
My boyfriend, who is now my husband, introduced me to hunting in the fall of 2000. I began September 1 with dove, and hunted whitetail deer that season as well. I LOVED it! Texans are very fortunate in that we have a very long hunting season, from Sept 1 through May, there is pretty much always something in season to hunt. Then there are the pigs and varmints… year round hunting!
In 2002, I took my very first trip out of the United States, crossing the big water to the dark continent. Africa… it gets into your soul. Continue reading
Driving down the county highway recently, the kids noticed that there was fish swimming in our CRP field. This spawned an adventure and a story that was simply too good to pass up.
Recent rainfalls dropped extensive amounts of water here in northwest Minnesota. When this happens, rivers rise out of their banks and so forth. The land is so flat here that water rarely runs off and settles in whatever low spot it can find. A series of ditches connect low areas to roadside ditches as a means of moving the water off of fields. These eventually lead to a river, swamp, or lake but when water is too high, the reverse happens. Thanks to the heavy rain, water was backed up everywhere and flooding fields including this particular CRP field. Continue reading
As you all know, The Wild World of CarrieZ is an ever evolving entity. While certain core elements without a doubt stay consistent, I am always trying new things, experimenting with new technology and strategies.
The last 5 years have been an incredibly journey. Starting out as a blogger that knew nothing about the outdoor industry to now; a successful outdoor writer, with two popular podcasts and soon a team of talented bloggers, I feel I have grown by leaps and bounds.
I don’t think way back when, even Aneal Roney host of BowCast, knew the tornado he’d just corralled. As an extremely driven woman I am very proud of my accomplishments. I am always striving for better and that is my own form of quality control.
Since this is the first “blog” I have ever written I feel that an introduction is in order. My name is Josh Howell. I live in Badger, MN and I live with my girlfriend and 3 kids. Devan, Blaine, and Esten are the kids and are my inspiration for this blog.
I was a late bloomer into hunting. I didn’t start until I was 19. I was living in central Iowa. The first thing that I “really” hunted for was raccoons. A friend of mine had a couple of hounds and I was hooked the first night. It was awesome. I didn’t have to sit still, I didn’t have to be quiet, and I didn’t have to take time off of work because we were hunting at night.
The next thing I knew I was pheasant and deer hunting too. Pheasant was fun but I was not impressed with deer hunting in Iowa. The common place practice at the time was to do deer drives. This may be the most effective way to hunt deer in Iowa firearm season because shotguns with slugs have limited range and the seasons are rather short. The problem I had with this was that it was dangerous and at the time very un-organized. Continue reading
