Antler Reproductions: Remembering A Great Hunt!

Getting a once-in-a-lifetime buck is a great reward for an outdoorsman. If there are antler tines, points and even main beams broken or missing we can still help create a great looking mount with a pair of antler reproductions. Besides producing very high quality deer head and shoulder mounts, The Outpost also specializes in fixing antlers. Antler Repairs are done with modern resins that can be sculpted into nearly any shape or size of repair. The repairs are textured and colored so realistically that you will likely not be able to tell where the repairs were done. Our taxidermists will use their skills and antler replicator experience to ensure that your piece – from standard mounts to custom requests – will be the right match for your collection. If you would like more information about antler reproductions, contact us today!

3 Life Hacks Every Outdoorsman Should Know

If you spend a lot of time in the outdoors, particularly during hunting season, you probably consider yourself fairly knowledgeable. However, there are a few, simple tricks you might not know that can make your season even better. For instance… Hack #1: Eliminate Your “Civilized” Smell Human noses have an evolutionary ability that we adjust to smells we’re exposed to all the time. It’s why you sometimes need to have someone else tell you that you have bad breath. However, if you’re hoping to sneak up on animals on their home turf, your scent will give you away from a long distance. As such, you should “scrub” the civilized scent off of you. Don’t use scented soap, shampoo, or aftershave. Leave your gear in the woods, or if that’s not feasible, pick it in a plastic bag with dirt, leaves, twigs, etc. for a while until that’s what your gear […]

Tips for Taking Your Kids on A Unforgettable Fishing Trip

You’ve been waiting and waiting and now the day is finally here – the day you get to take your children on their first fishing trip. It’s bound to be a day for the memory books, so you want it to be perfect. The best place to start is planning what you’ll need to take with you. Patience. Teaching kids how to fish is going to require a good amount of patience. Plan on lots of snagged lines, fishing poles flung into the water, and kids splashing each other with water. Just remember, the first trip is going to be covering the basics and hoping for the best. Tackle box. You probably already have a tackle box if you’re an avid fisherman. If so, take a picture of it before you leave because it will never look the same once a bunch of little fingers goes through it! Kids love […]

Talking Turkey: Which Turkey Call Should You Choose?

If turkey hunting is on your agenda then you finding a turkey call could help you on your hunt. Let’s be honest, there is no one turkey call that works every single time to attract turkeys in. If there was, there wouldn’t be so many different calls out there. However, what you will find is hunters, each who swear by a different call device. If you don’t have a favorite, that’s okay, too.

Memorable Fishing Trips

It’s 5 o’clock in the morning. You are standing on the porch of a lake-view rental at Caddo or Livingston, a bucket of minnows in one hand, fishing pole in the other. A cool mist is floating in from the water, tendrils of it already starting to burn off in the breaking summer dawn. You take a deep breath, rich with the earthy scents of a healthy land and fresh air. You are king of your vacation castle on a perfect Saturday morning, strolling to the dock where you can hear the gentle wet plops of surfacing fish reaching for colorful dragonflies. It’s good to be the king. The most memorable fishing trip is one that matches your personality. You might enjoy fishing Tom Sawyer-style, teaching your kids to catch them one minute and then scare them off by jumping in the fishing hole, laughing, the next minute. Perhaps you would […]

Five Essential Knots for Fishing Trips

Tying a proper knot is the difference between catching a trophy bass or telling a story about the one that got away. Losing a fish due to a poor knot is heartbreaking and can ruin a fishing trip, but it is preventable with these five essential knots. Palomar Knot:  This is one of the most widely used knots by anglers, and for good reason. Few knots are as secure as the Palomar, and it is a great knot to use on braided or monofilament line. San Diego Jam Knot:  Another widely used knot that is comparable to the Palomar is the San Diego Jam knot. Also known as the Reverse Clinch or Heiliger knot, it is reliable, strong and quick. Trilene Knot: The Trilene knot is great for securing artificial lures. Lures are expensive, so a strong knot like the Trilene prevents spending money on replacement lures. Blood Knot:  The […]

Fishing Trips Are a Great Way to Get Kids Involved in Outdoor Sports

Fishing has been a fun family bonding experience for generations. Adults often find it relaxing and nostalgic. Kids love the thrill of catching a fish all by themselves. It gets families outdoors and connecting with the natural world in a unique way while making lasting memories. Getting children involved, however, does come with challenges. Much of the hassle and difficulty can be spared by remembering a few key things: Know the equipment and technique ahead of time. If you’re a seasoned angler, no worries. But if it’s been a while since you wetted a line, spend some time reviewing your gear. Simpler is better when it comes to novice anglers, especially kids. The time-tested worm and bobber is a fine place to start and panfish are the perfect introductory species. Once your young anglers gain some experience and confidence, moving up to lures isn’t hard. Floating lures are a good […]

Custom Metal Fabrication & Welding

Hunters that are after big game and use feeders are increasingly finding that they are are attracting the wrong kind of animal. Wild hogs are a nuisance, damaging to whitetails and can destroy cheap feeders. The Outpost offers custom metal fabrication feeders that will stop feral hogs from carrying off your bait. Because the feeders are metal, the hogs cannot do much damage to them. We make extremely sturdy feeders. Wild hogs quickly learn that they can rock against the limbs of a cheap feeder to tip it over or knock feed out of the barrel. Our feeders, with heavy angle iron or box iron legs, are proof against shaking and impacts from even the biggest boars.   If you have other custom feeder or deer blind needs, we’re ready to talk to you. Just fill out this form and tell us your what you’re looking for. Someone will be in touch.
