COLORADO you never.get.old. Just when I think I’ve seen all the beauty and wonder of this state, it goes and continues to take my breath away.
I had the opportunity to spend the last 3 days with Eric and Pudge out in the wilderness, in and out of cell range, scouting for elk and our ‘spot’ for my upcoming elk hunt...again, a ‘humbling’ experience to spend 3 days around 12,000 feet and hiking miles at killer grades... needless to say I’m typing this from my hot Epsom salt bath. 😬
To that point, I’ve got a lot of work to do in the gym to make sure I’m ready for this hunt. I’ve got a highly coveted tag and I have 0 intentions of letting it go to waste. So here’s to upping my workouts!! 🥑 (avocados not alcohol)
Along this journey I’ve had the incredible luck (more like God’s timing), of meeting some incredible fellow outdoorsmen/women, like @ladyspartan425.
Talk about an awesome community of incredibly supportive, uplifting people who sincerely love the outdoors and being good to others. #yourvibeattractsyourtribe
On a side note, it still boggles my mind when I hear people say they don’t believe in God. These pictures do not do Colorado justice, his handiwork is all around and you don’t need to look far at all to see it. Just open your eyes and breathe it in. .

It was a wonderful experience to watch these boys who had never hunted take a genuine interest in where their meat comes from, to watch them confront their moral inconsistencies and really get in there - hands-on, and learn! @the.alpha.human
are fantastic teachers in absolutely every aspect and I’m incredibly grateful I had the opportunity to experience one of their hunting retreats. I can’t speak highly enough of them or recommend what they do enough. Thanks boys, it was an absolute pleasure and privilege, and I’m forever thankful! 🏹
So...hey...it's me. I haven't introduced myself in a long time and today seems like a good time. My name is Robin. I live on a 45 acre homestead in the remote woods of Maine. I share my land with whitetail deer, black bears, moose, bobcats, coyote, porcupine, raccoons and other smaller animals. They are the only neighbors I have in sight. My tiny town has a population of 60.
I'm a writer, and Chef Robin at On The Fire, part of a great radio show called The Big Wild.
Most of my food is grown, raised and wild harvested on the homestead and nearby. I garden to grow vegetables, herbs and fruits. I forage for more fruit, mushrooms and greens. I hunt black bear, whitetail deer, ruffed grouse, snowshoe hare and thisnyear, moose. Fish is year round and provides bass, white and yellow perch, salmon and brown bullhead. I cook, put up and otherwise live my life around food.
Nature is vitally important to me. I get and stay grounded outdoors. Living in the woods is the right place for me.
