The Feral Fork

Double D is not your average outdoor writer. He might be the most laid back outdoorsman who’s job is being an outdoorsman that I know. Double D took a shooting class from me one time – saying his shooting needed work. Everyone’s shooting needs work but Double D was already capable of outshooting a good portion of the gunwriters I know. I don’t know if our one day range session helped him at all but it was the beginning of a good freindship.

Double D likes to cook and eat but I think more than that he likes to take photos of food. I know, its weird. A man should be taking photos of guns or girls – but, Double D is kinda weird. No I take that back, all outdoor / gunwriters are weird, Double D is different.

One reason he is different is because he can actually write. I don’t man that he has the ability to beat out declarative sentences and maintain a coherent line of thought, Double D can tell a story and make you feel something.

Check out his new blog, THE FERAL FORK. If it does not entertain you it should at least make you hungry. In the mean time, I’ll see if I can get him to take some photos of guns or girls. If not, I’ll send him some of my pictures.
