First off, you're a dick. (My apologies to the ladies and weak-of-heart.)
Second, human nature dictates that you will eventually talk. When you do, others will listen. Over time, your stories will be come legend, and your name will be disclosed. Bank on it.
But enough of that. For those truly concerned about the mortal (maybe) remains of America's most cherished cherub, my suggestion is a simple one: a security system.
Anyone willing to join me in raising funds…Continue

Finished taping the final segment of our new TV show last night at the state capitol. I was filmed standing on the state seal and pointing out a certain tragic miner who ended up on the floor in the rotunda. The whole crew was fried. We started shooting at nine in the morning at McDonald's Farm on Scottadale Road, shooting two segments by Marshall Trimble. From there we moved down to McCormick Railroad Park and taped another segment with Marshall on…Continue

Buck Montgomery and crew will be with us, my neighbor and chicken wrangler Tom Augherton will be riding shotgun and Larry and Rose Mary Winget will be on the wave. Oh, and…Continue

Yesterday we shot out at Pioneer Living History Museum for a TV show we are working on. This is the area we were filming, which is called The Ranch (note the producer on the phone in the shade at left):
This is my first blog as a new member on this absolutely fabulous website! 'Thought I'd kick it off with a topic on The Kid's skills with the iron -to which I hope you guys also will be contributing.
I have now for a long time been a fan of Billy the Kid's and have read a tremendous lot about him, besides watching the documentaries and movies.You never quite hear about the Kid's skills much when reading or hearing about him, although the words, "celebrated" and…Continue

Worked this weekend on a new version the Hanska Slough Crew who rounded up the Youngers and Samuel Wells (alias Charlie Pitts) just west of Madelia, Minnesota. This version is a little snappier than the first which ran in True West back in 2001 and in Classic Gunfights, Volume I (page 68).
Have you seen this month's Cottonwood Clarion yet? It's out today.

Worked this weekend on new art for the Northfield feature in the next issue. Re-attacked a failed panorama of the very brave seven Medelia, Minnesota volunteers who waded down into the thickets of Hanska Slough to go toe to toe with the most dangerous gang of bank robbers in the Wild West. Bar none. Still tweaking it. I'll post the results tomorrow.
Meanwhile, had some very pretty girls in our house today for a bridal shower. I was…Continue

Because I have covered a broad range of gunfights in the magazine and in my books I am often asked how I get past the myths and legends and find the closest thing to the truth. The trick, I always say, is to find the one person who has spent their entire life researching a specific event. Many times you get guys (and gals) who specialize in researching everything about one person (Joseph Rosa, the renowned expert on all things Wild Bill Hickok comes to…Continue

Had a stress test this morning (my third). They basically inject radioactive isotopes into your bloodstream and then make you run on a treadmill 'til you drop, with an MRI at either end of the procedure. Takes about three hours ($250 co pay, which means you can pay for the procedure because the insurance you allegedly have ain't payin' for it. That's what the "co" part means).
A few highlights from the BLT tour. Stayed at the Mabel Dodge…Continue
