I'm 26 years old and currently live in El Paso, TX with my beautiful wife. I have been fishing for around 10 years and have been in the Army for 5. I also duck hunt and am a general outdoor enthusiast.
I'm back everyone! Sorry, it's been a while. With getting married, work never giving me a personal life, travel, and a new puppy it has been tough. I'm back though, and so is football, which means hunting season is...
Over the Memorial Day Weekend, my wife and I decided to go on an overnight camping trip with a few friends. Now, I enjoy the whole camping with the minimal things, the wife not so much. Because of this,...
Pretty sure one of the many things my wife finds attractive about me is when we go to a restaurant, and I'm able to pick a wine she'll enjoy with her meal. Being able to navigate your way around...
In the last M.I.N.G Guide to Wine, we discussed some of the background of wine and the distinction between sweet, dry, semi-sweet, and off-dry. In this edition, we'll be talking about wine regions from around the world. Some of these...
Most of the country is still cold, or Mother Nature is just drunk. Spring is coming, whether you choose to believe it or not. That means the weather will be good enough to get into some new outdoor activities....
Presidents Day, a day to honor all Presidents past and present. This Presidents Day we are honoring Abraham Lincoln. Teddy Roosevelt may have had the physical adventures and Andrew Jackson had his fiery personality. Abe established himself through action...
Most men look at wine as a fruity drink. Those men would be wrong. Wine comes in as many forms as beer does, and women love it. The Mans Guide to Wine will teach you the basics of wine...
One of my New Years Resolutions is to go camping in 2018. It's been years since I've camped. I spend a lot of time sleeping outside because of the Army, but that doesn't count. With Spring quickly approaching, some...
Hunting is an expensive hobby to have. If you can even call it a hobby. Hunting for me is quickly turning into a lifestyle. For two years now, from November to January, I've been out chasing waterfowl here in...
Texas has three weeks in September for teal season. I managed to make it out twice for my first teal season, twice for my first solo hunts. Still considered a novice waterfowler, I came away from those two hunts...
Fishing the fall transition can be fast-paced, or slower than a line at the DMV. Fall is upon us, well at least here in El Paso that's how it feels. It has been 75 degrees on average for the...
I struggle with writer's block from time to time. Luckily our Editors neighbor, who is a big supporter of MING, recommended this article topic. With more fishing knots than there are fishermen in the world, it gets pretty wild...
Hunting season is still two months away. Come September a lot of seasons are opening up. Here in West Texas, it's September Teal season. Whether it's waterfowl or big game, rifle or bow season, a lot of us are...
We are in the middle of summer vacation season, and many of us are traveling. I’m currently writing this during leg 1 of my flights from El Paso to Baltimore. Looking out the window I finally start seeing some...
Hey, everyone, I'm Brandon; an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy good alcohol, flippy floppies, and traveling around our beautiful country.  I will be your outdoor writer, and occasionally I'll write about other manly things like guns and travel. Currently, I...
After writing the first part of The United States of the Great Outdoors: Pennsylvania, I was approached on social media by a PA local. Basically, the conversation revealed that I could write a great tourism pamphlet for outdoor lovers....
Soft plastic bait is a lot like fishing line. There are hundreds to choose from and each kind has a different purpose in the water. Personally, I swear by using soft plastic baits for more summer fish. They are...
Pennsylvania, home of the Liberty Bell, cheesesteaks, and steel. It's the same state where our Founding Fathers signed the middle finger directed at the King of England, the Declaration of Independence. It also happens to be the next state...
If you are anything like me, you don't own a boat. This is a normal aggravation for many of us shore anglers. It's such an aggravation for me that I listen to Chris Jansen's "Buy Me a Boat" every...
The first thought of New York is, of course, New York City. Fortunately for all the city-goers, there are some great outdoor activities the Empire State offers. From hiking to hunting, New York is our first state in The...
Have a weekend fishing trip coming up? Don't do it alone. If you would rather go into the woods all by yourself for a fishing trip, then you probably don't have too many friends; or you listen to way too...
Why not turn your fishing trip into a camping trip as well? After all, fishing is an outdoor activity, and so is camping. If this a route you're willing to take, then you'll need a short list of camping...
Weekend fishing trip coming up? Have everything you need to make it a success? Do you even know where to start? Time to pull out that cat covered notepad your mother bought you for Christmas and write these necessities...
There are about 500 different types and brands of fishing line on the wall in Bass Pro Shops. Braid, monofilament, fluorocarbon; all from companies such as Berkley, Spiderwire, Stren, and more. The question is which one to buy? It...
