Yard Work Sessions: Crowned Heads Four Kicks Capa Especial Águiles LE 2021 Review

I usually like to smoke cigars while I am doing stuff around the house, or working on my own projects. Sometimes because it makes the task more enjoyable, other times it is because I can’t sit still long enough to just smoke. Oftentimes I smoke cigars that I know do not require a bunch of attention but are good cigars, or I use that time to burn through some less than stellar cigars I have on hand.  Then there are some activities or chores where I can smoke something special or new to me and enjoy the experience and give...

Build Your Cigar Starter Kit

For most of us, we start as occasional cigar smokers. Maybe you had a family friend who let you try one of the Swisher Sweets he always smoked, no matter where he was. Maybe you only had the occasional CI Mega Sampler cigar from the Ziplock gallon bag passed around at the tailgate. Maybe you and a buddy would go to the Smoker’s Express and grab the coolest looking cigar you could afford on a college budget so you could smoke, shoot the shit, and watch the drunk students on their walks home on thirsty Thursdays. Maybe that was just...

Making The Most of Bow Season

Every Whitetail season, bowhunters take to the woods in hopes of bagging a target buck, filling the freezer with meat or just simply getting back into the deer woods. Archery season is a great opportunity to hunt because in most states it comes before any firearm seasons. This makes for far less pressured deer and if approached properly, makes for increased likelihood of success. But, what can we do as bowhunters to ensure our success even more? Well, that's what we'll cover here in this blog post. Keep reading for our key three things to make the most of your...
