2010 Double with Henry Ferguson

TweetIt’s early one morning in September 2010 and it’s the kind of day that bow hunters dream of.  Cool crisp morning air and not a lot of wind.  I am heading out with one of my best friends to do what these two best friends love to do, hunt.  Before the sun had even come up, we spotted deer on the horizon.  Looking through the binoculars to see if there is anything worth shooting, our glance passes by a really… Continue reading

Understanding the Badlands Passion

TweetI came from the world of fly-fishing. Growing up in Utah and being around people who hunted and fished, I knew that Badlands Hunting Gear and William Joseph Fly Fishing Gear were related but I never imagined I would end up working there. I began fly fishing in my early teens with my father and older brother and quickly became very passionate about the sport. That passion continues now as I enter my 30s.  It wasn’t until I began working… Continue reading
