2013 MBYG Hunt A Success

Friday, February 8th, 2013

The 2013 MBYG Hunt went great this year!  We would like to say thanks to all the Staff and Parents who put all their hard work in making this organization grow to where it is today.

Our goal is to grow bigger and better each year and add more smiles on the faces of our children in Arkansas and any child that wants to participate all over the country.  We ask, if you know of a child that hasn’t gotten the opportunity to experience the outdoors and would benefit from this experience, (single parent, children of wounded soldiers, less fortunate, or just a child who wants that opportunity to experience the outdoors) or any Volunteers to help out, please reach out to us with a message on the Muddy Bayou Young Gunz FaceBook page.  And while you are there, hit “Like” to show your support of getting youth in the outdoors.

Help us make a difference in a kids life…..And “Like” Muddy Bayou Young Gunz!!!

The Second Annual Muddy Bayou Young Gunz Waterfowl Hunt Will be Held February 5-6!

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Our first annual hunt was a blast, we couldn’t have asked for a better opener!  This year is expected to be much bigger and more exciting!!  Already Delta Waterfowl has stepped up in a big way, by hosting us at their 2010 banquet, where M.B.Y.G raised over $1200 in donations, not counting the $1200 the Delta Waterfowl (Muddy Waters Chapter) is donating to help make this possible!!  These guys have stepped up in a big way!

Also stepping up in a “Big” way, Drake Waterfowl!!  Just like last year, they are outfitting 10 kids “head to toe” with clothes and gear!! Not to mention Drake is filming the hunt to air on their new show “Migration Nation”!!!  This year should be a “BIG HIT”!

Impacting kids in a “Big” way at this  years banquet was the Arkansas Game and Fish, by giving one of our kids a ” LIFETIME hunting licenses!!!!  What a Huge way to impact a kids life, by automatically giving them a free pass to the Outdoors!

We thank everyone in our community for stepping up and helping grow this organization as fast As it has grow.  Hopefully the sky is the limit and we continue to grow bigger and bigger each And every year!!

Fill free to throw any ideas our way, as they will be much appreciated!  If you would like to get involved in any way, please fill free to contact Cody Alberson @ 870-351-0633!!
Again we thank everyone for their help and we wanna encourage you to help M.B.Y.G grow  to keep kids in the Outdoors and keep our hunting Heritage Alive!!!!

Cody Alberson and MUZZY Team Strikes BIG in Alberta!!

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

On June 1st Team Muzzy found themselves just North of Ft. McMurry, hunting Alberta Black Bear!! If you ever want an adventursome hunt, this is a must!

It all started with a float plane ride to the middle of nowhere!!  And when I say “nowhere” I mean nowhere!! We were about 100miles from civilazation, not to mention a 45minute Argo ride to camp!  This hunt is already an adventure and we haven’t even hunted yet!!

Arriving in camp, we got settled in and the guide went over some camp rules.  Mostly just telling us to be cautious. I mean, we are in the middle of Bear Haven and you can’t be to cautious!

First day out wasn’t much action, just some scouting and finding where the majority of the bear were hanging out.  Note that, all the scouting is done by Argo and my cover 20 plus miles a day.  But fortunately we found bear pretty quick and it wasn’t long till we had one on the ground.  We had taken a great bear, bumping roughly 300lbs!! The trip was already a success, but we still had one more tag!

Where we had shot the bear, there was a game camera not to far away, set up.  So we decided to go take a look.  If anyone knows about game cameras, you know that when you check them, it’s almost like Christmas or as “Forrest Gump” said ” like a box of chocolates, never know what ya gonna get!!  Well that line can’t be more true.  We had captured a Monster Alberta Black Bear on cam!! The guide “Dan Hungle” instanly said ” this is definatly a B&C (Boone & Crockett)!!

With Dan confident and the Muzzy team already with one tag filled, we decided to sacrafice all our time in this one spot to just hopefully get a chance at this Giant!!! We knew it was gonna take patience and alot of time sitting in one spot, but we were determine to make this happen!!  This bear wasn’t huge from being dumb, he was smart, bc in 2 days we end up getting two  close incounters with this Alberta Giant!

Just to fill you in, the bear are in full rut and one if our strategies was to find out who his girl friend was, and that we did!! Her nickname…(Pretty Face).  A 400lb female with a beautiful blondeish brown face!!  We knew whenever she was around he was close!! And we all know these mature animals, wether it be bear, whitetail, elk or whatever you may be hunting, let their gaurd down the most, when a beautiful lady is around!!! Goes for you men out there too!

Wow, we could not shake this bear.  He would come just close enough, knowing something wasn’t right, turn around and ease off!!

Now before I go on with the story, just to let you know, we are hunting with a Hoyt bow….. On the ground!! We have had bear literally 2 to 4 yds, with no blind or anything.  Just using a tree for cover!!  Talkin bout make your heart pump!! And one of those bear we had to mace, bc he had a temper and at 3yds commenced to start bluff charging us!! ( this is what bear do to try and scare or threaten their competition).

You know they always say patience pays off, well….. It does, and that the third time is the charm!! We look up through the woods and who is it?  Pretty Face!  She is comin in and we know he ain’t far behind.  Now we just have to get passed his nose,  since bear can smell over 10 plus miles away, that kinda hard to do!!! Our hearts are pounding as the Alberta Giant was getting closer!  Man, how cautious this bear is, seems like it took forever for him to come ten more yards!!  But that he did, pretty face was just to pretty I guess!  We ranged him at 16 yards, the camera rolling and joey at full draw and the the confirmation……”tak’em”!!!

The Muzzy Team had just muzzified a Giant Alberta black bear!!  All the hard work and patience had payed off and long hrs sitting on the ground allowed us to take a 8ft 600lb Alberta Black Bear!! Which SCI skull measurment of 22inches!! Which put him well into the B&C books!!

Dan Hungle, with Trophy Book Outfitters had definatly lived up to his name bc we had definatly killed a TROPHY of a LIFETIME!!!!

What more can we do to get kids involved?  Well, there is a lot! That’s why Bayou Deview Guides teamed up with the Arkansas Game & Fish, to give the

Cody and Young Gun

Young Guns of Woodruff County and our region a hands on experience in the conservation of North American waterfowl.  Check out some pics!

What a great time it was to see those kids have a blast while helping out!  Remember, there Is alot more to hunting, than just killing, it is also about conservation.  To be a great hunter you must know all the work that goes into conservation, rather than reap the benifits of a hard working few.

So get kids involved, show them there is a meaning behind hunting, not just killing, although that is the fun part!  That is the first step in conservation in our book.

Adults, this is where it all starts, so take a kid hunting.  Even if it’s not your child, take that extra step. You will be glad you did!
