Brett Keisel Interview with Deer & Deer Hunting

Brett Keisel talks about his love of hunting, A Wyoming Spirit painting, and of course, the beard... By Alan Clemons, Deer & Deer Hunting While growing up in Wyoming, Brett Keisel loved hunting and being outdoors in the wide open country loved by so many outdoorsmen. He's currently an All-Pro defensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers. At 35 years old, Keisel has toiled in the National Football League for a dozen years, earning high praise from coaches, teammates and opponents for his work ethic, dedication and professionalism. He has hunted for 20 years and his favorite animals to hunt with his bow are white-tailed deer and elk. Keisel and his family live in Pennsylvania. He was interviewed by Alan Clemons for this "I'm A Deer Hunter" feature: You're in Pennsylvania, one of the top states for deer hunting, but it collides with the NFL season. Do you get to do any hunting in autumn at home? Absolutely. I stick with archery, the weather is nice here early in the season and my body is not too beat up at that point. By time rifle season gets here it's hard to get out of bed and into a tree somewhere. I have a big passion for archery. I got my deer last year with my Bowtech Destroyer. I have a nice piece of property here near Pittsburgh and can pretty much hunt in my yard. I'm surrounded by woods and there are a lot of big deer running around there. I have some food plots in the field behind house, mostly to keep the deer from eating the flowers. What is it about bowhunting that you enjoy so much?

Work In Progress – Cheyenne Moon – Danny Reyes

Work In Progress - Cheyenne Moon - Danny Reyes

This is Danny Reyes from the Cheyenne Nation. This painting is traditional oils on Ampersand Gessobord Masonite. The finished size is 11" x 14". Here is version one. On day one, I painted in all the dark areas. This is day two. I have laid in the base coat for the upper head feathers. Day three. Here I painted the base coat on his face. Day four. I spent the entire day roughing in his porcupine quill collar/chest plate and ear rings plus I added more detail to his face. This is the final version. I finished detailing out his upper feathers, painted in David's collar feathers and lastly, I signed it. I wanted to point out something in this painting that I didn't notice until after I was about half way through the painting. If you look closely, check out the gold shape on David's face. It is very cleverly painted to represent a crescent moon using his actual eye and nose, giving us the title that Andrew and I came up with, Cheyenne Moon. Here are two close-ups of my final version to show all the detail. Thanks for riding along. Stay tuned, there are many more of my works in progress to come. Denny
