Raptorazor Makes Skinning, Quartering Big Game Easier — Win One Now!

Hunters can never have enough knives, and while some blades may be less functional than others, not so with the Raptorazor.

And now you just might win one of the company’s big game skinning or quartering blades by liking and sharing this post!

Raptorazor 2-min


In case you haven’t heard of Raptorazor’s unique knives, we sat down with Rick Grover, who invented and founded the line:

Northwest Sportsman How did you come up with the idea for the Raptorazor?
Rick Grover About 20 years ago I was taught the gutless method while hunting on the island of Molokai in Hawaii. This technique requires cutting down the spine of the animal and the thick neck hide. Until that time I had always used a 4-inch folding old-timer knife and carried my sharpening stone with me. I had tried just about every new gimmick of a knife with a gut hook on it. Some would work well the first time and some would break when it came to cutting through the neck hide.

The biggest problem with the gut hooks on the market is they are too small, usually only 1/4 inch, and they can not be sharpened easily. I had discovered a plastic two-finger gut hook that had an interchangeable blade; it worked great on thin hide, but every time I tried to cut through the nape of the neck I would break it.

After several years of breaking them, I finally got fed up and decided to make my own. Using a plasma cutter and grinder, I made my first prototype that we first used on a Roosevelt elk and everyone’s jaw dropped. It wasn’t until I skinned an axis deer that I discovered how well it worked spinning around the legs and removing them. We knew at the moment that we had something special.



CS You have two knives: the Big Game Skinner and the Mako. What are some of their similarities and differences?
RG The BGS has a dual blade. The hook portion can cut up to 3 inches of hide from the inside out and the bottom blade is your guided Skinner. The Mako becomes an extension of your finger and is used to quarter-out game. Both knives have a unique T-handle design for easy control, and they also eliminate hand fatigue.

NS Your promo video ( makes a convincing case for these products. Why was it important for you to show the strength of your knives?
RG I think that we can all agree that products today are designed to break. I wanted to introduce a product that would last a lifetime. Showing the strength of the knife lifting a 700-pound quad says it all.

NS You also do quite a few educational videos. Tell us more about that.
RG I was taught as a kid to gut the animal, drag it whole out of the woods – sometimes up to 2 or 3 miles – then wait several hours before getting back to the barn to hang it and skin it. We would then let it hang and age for a week, and by the time it made it to the dinner table it was bad, really bad. But I was taught if you shot it, you eat it, so I choked it down in order to keep hunting.

When I was taught the gutless technique I was amazed and instantly hooked. It saves time, it’s cleaner, you cool the meat down faster, you lighten your load packing out by 40 pounds, and you never gut the animal, which keeps the meat cleaner and free of bacteria.

So back to the question: I want to share what I have learned over the years and pass it on to other hunters to ensure that they get the best-quality meat back to the dinner table.

My biggest compliment is having our videos used in hunter’s education classes all over the world.

NS Are there any big names in the hunting and fishing world who endorse the Raptorazor?
RG Yes, we have Roger Raglin with Roger Raglin Outdoors, Jim Burnworth with Western Extreme, Mike Stroff with Savage Outdoors, Freddie Harteis, aka The Hollywood Hunter, and Kinion Bankston with Southern Boyz Outdoors, to name a few.

They’ve Got Your Tackle Covered!

Hello, my name is Mike Mauk and I live in Brewster, Washington. My mother and I are the founders of Mauk Fishing Stuff fishing tackle covers.

Back in 2004, two very important people in my life passed away. My wife passed from uterine cancer and two weeks later my dad passed from natural causes. This left me alone with a home in California and my mom alone in Brewster with a home that needed taking care of.

So I sold out, retired from the Operating Engineers Union and
moved in with my mom and took over the chores around the house. She and I would spend almost every day of the summer salmon season fishing here in the Columbia River, except
for the crazy weekends.mauktackle1

Fishing with two poles and double treble hooks and still learning how to catch the big kings here, I had tackle everywhere in the boat. After a fishing trip, it took hours to get everything cleaned up and ready to do it again the next morning before daylight.

I realized a need for some kind of lure cover so I could keep the tackle on the pole and ready for fishing without having to rig up two poles in the early morning before daylight on the boat.

Mom was about as patient as I am, and she didn’t like waiting to get a line in the water once the boat stopped!

This tackle cover was a way to keep the lures and flashers tidy while changing gear on the poles, and a way to cut down on the entanglement after every trip!

Mom has been a big crafter all her life. We tried quite a few different ways to make covers, and came up with sewing Velcro onto vinyl and wrapping around the poles. We had all different sizes and different configurations of Velcro to fasten them.

Then my nephew, a big time bass fisherman, saw what we were doing and asked for some to fit his bass plugs. He wanted colored ones, blue to match his poles, that you could not see what lure was inside. Fishermen can be a secretive bunch. I personally like to see what’s in the cover without undoing it, hence the clear vinyl.

We realized we could maybe sell these covers, but we had to get one size and be consistent. So we started making the cover 6½ inches wide by 8½ inches long so that when folded, they would cover the Mag Warts bass fishermen use, and the Super Baits we were using to catch salmon.

mauktackle2We started selling on eBay and sold a few. Then I started a website. I didn’t sell very many, but we were selling more and more on eBay. So I started making bigger ones to fit the flashers and smaller ones to fit the smaller tackle and dodgers.
Then we started selling on Amazon, and after a while were selling
quite a few, and we got some suggestions for other sizes. We started make them and add them to the lineup, too. We never planned on making a bunch of money, it was just more of a hobby that could make a few bucks.

I knew keeping the prices down was key, so we did, but after a few years we realized that eBay and Amazon were making more than we were, so I have raised the prices some and we are still selling quite a few.

Last year at a Spokane Sports show I ran into Captain Dave with
Captain Dave’s Guide Service and he told me that he was needing sleeves to hold all the various sizes of kokanee blades and dodgers, so I came home and came up with a couple of designs and sent them to Dave. He sent me back more ideas, and now I am making sleeves to fit small dodgers all the way up to the 0 and 1 size herring dodgers, as well as the 11-inch plastic Pro-Troll and Hot Spot flashers.mauktackle3

Mom passed away from natural causes Nov. 21, 2015, just shy of her 94th birthday. Although she is greatly missed, she lived a full and — I believe — happy life. She stayed at home until the last week of life when we had to have her in the Harmony House here in Brewster where they took magnificent care of her in her last days.
So Mom and Mike’s Fishing Tackle Covers lives on. Please check our web sites and Again, we also sell on eBay and Amazon, as well as directly. You can also call or text me at (509) 449- 0605.

If you do not see a size that will fit what you are trying to cover, please ask and I will try to accommodate you.

Steelheading On A Budget For Beginners


Those who have not had the thrill of a magnificent steelhead on the end of their line simply can’t understand our obsession with winter-runs. We freeze our butts off in the middle of rivers for the chance to catch a fish that many times we will then release! Yes, to some this sounds like we’re nuts. And don’t get me wrong, we kinda are, but experiencing what a steelhead can do to your mind just once converts some of the most hardcore doubters into hardcore anglers, men and women alike.

While many would-be anglers are astonished at how much money we sink into our passion, for beginners it really doesn’t have to be that way. You can always start out simple. Believe me, when you get hooked, you’ll be looking at those $300 rods, $200 reels, $400 waders, $200 boots, etc., but two key things for getting into the sport are actually free – the drive to catch one of the most magnificent fighting fish on the planet, and the patience to endure those times when you don’t find fish. For the beginner, the latter may come quite often, but here’s a true fact: Even for highly experienced and skilled anglers, a skunking is always a possibility, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We steelheaders know you have to work for these fish, and maybe that’s why we love them and the sport so much: Catching one is never a given.

But while the motivation costs very little, the basics – rod, reel, line, swivels, hooks, weight, lures – do require a bit of investment. There are two ways we can get started – the traditional drift fishing set-up (my recommendation), and float fishing. Both have their advantages that I’ll discuss below.
To me, this is the method that every steelheader should start with. The premise of drift fishing outlines the entire gamut of how to fish for steelhead and why they bite. It also gives one an enormous sense of pride having conquered the hardest part of steelheading, detecting the bite. Once you’re relatively successful at drift fishing, all other techniques will just kind of fall into place. Another advantage of drift fishing is the rod. A good drift rod can be utilized for almost all other techniques.

But to get started you’ll probably not want to invest too much money into equipment and gear until you get hooked – just in case you’re one of the few who struggle. I always suggest beginners go with a 9-foot fast-action rod rated 8-12 pounds. Again, this is a rod that can be used for other techniques, and the specs are just suggestions. I started out with an 8½-footer rated 10-17 pounds. Looking back, this was a “killer” rod that I caught many fish on. These days, probably not many people would recommend one with those specs as the ideal steelhead rod, but you utilize what you can afford. There are plenty of options out there for under $100. With drift fishing, “sensitivity” is key. The main difference between a sub-$100 rod and a $300-plus rod is that the material used is lighter, stronger and much more sensitive. Learn to feel a bite on a rod at the lower end of the cost spectrum and just wait until you experience what you feel with a top quality stick, such as the G.Loomis IMX Series!

You’re also going to need a nice reel. I always suggest to purchase the best possible within your budget. A smooth drag will pay dividends in fish caught versus fish breaking off, or coming unbuttoned. A baitcaster is preferred for drift fishing,
Brought and even though some of the spinning reels are super sweet, I’d suggest a nice levelwind reel, hands down. Another suggestion is, if you’re right-handed, use a left-handed reel, and vice versa for left-handers. The reason is that when you cast, you don’t want to switch hands to engage the reel and to retrieve. This way you continue to hold the rod with your dominant hand.A full vest isn’t necessary – beginning steelheaders really can ?nd success with as little terminal gear as a selection of pink, peach and pearl jigs or Corkies, depending on whether they start out as ?oat or drift ?shers. (TERRY WIEST)

For under $100 the Shimano Caenan 100 or 101 is a pretty sweet low-profile reel with an awesome drag. I’m 100 percent sold on Shimano’s drag technology and swear by them. For slightly over $100 is the Shimano Cardiff 200A or 201A, a round-style reel preferred by most who are just starting out. Many will stay with the round reel, while others will migrate to the low-pro. It’s all about personal preference – me? I use both.

For gear, the beginner can stay pretty simple. Size 10, 12 and 14 Li’l Corkies in pearl pink are sure winners. Other shades of pink and orange are good choices as well, and it’s wise to have some pink yarn. Tie a quality octopus-style hook (Owner, Gamakatsu) in size 4 or 2 via an egg-loop knot to some Ultragreen 10-pound leader behind 10-pound Ultragreen mainline with a 20-pound swivel between them. Pinch some hollow-core lead onto the tag end of the knot for weight, and you are fishing, my friend.

The technique is simple: cast upstream (always) and let your presentation glide down and through the hole. With the leader being about 3 to 4 feet long, allow the weight to “tick” the bottom every few seconds. You do not want it to drag bottom, but not touching bottom is not good either. The periodic tick will let you know you’re in the strike zone, roughly 1 to 2 feet above bottom.

As for the bite, well, that’s something you’ll just have to experience to feel. Many say it’s like sponge sucking your lure in. After years of experience, it becomes instinct, so much so that it’s actually one of the hardest things about fishing to describe.

One of the most well-known drift fishing areas to explore is below the hatchery on the Bogachiel River, just west of Forks. Pay attention to how others there are working the water, especially those who are catching fish. Don’t crowd anyone, but don’t be afraid to ask questions of fellow anglers. Watching others fish for steelhead is second only to experiencing it yourself.
Now, while float fishing happens to be my favorite technique for steelhead – in fact, I’ve written a book on it (Float Fishing for Salmon and Steelhead; Amato Publications) – I don’t necessarily feel it’s the best for beginning steelheaders. Why? It can be deceptive as to how steelheading should be. You cast a float out with a jig suspended underneath, watch it glide downriver, the float disappears, and boom – you have a fish! Well, it doesn’t always work that way, and to be ultraeffective there are many fine details that will distinguish you as an expert float fisherman. But compared to the skill it takes to detect one while drift fishing, feeling the bite is a no-brainer.

A float fishing rod is a specialty rod, therefore it’s techniquespecific and of not much use for other methods. While I prefer the G.Loomis 1262, unless you know you’re going to love steelheading and float fishing will be your preferred technique, I’d try a less expensive rod first. There are several float rods out there for under $100. Look for a rod that’s between 10 and 10½ feet long and rated 8-12 pounds with moderate action. The 1262 is rated 6-10 pounds, which you’ll appreciate once you have a few fish under your belt.

For a reel, go spinning! While some very good float fishermen still use baitcasters, the majority overwhelmingly employ spinning reels. Again, as with drift fishing, the drag is key and Shimano is the leader of the pack. For $100 get a Symetre 2500FL – this is a super-good reel with an incredible drag for this price point. Now if you want to feel something special, try the Stradic CI4 2500. It’s like butter!

The set-up is simple. Use 30-pound PowerPro main line. Slide a bobber stop, a bead, a 3/8-ounce float and another bead on the mainline. Tie a palomar knot to a ¼-ounce inline weight. Add on a 3-foot leader of 10-pound Seaguar. Attach an 1/8-ounce jig to the leader using a clinch, or reverse clinch knot. And as for terminal offering, overall you can’t go wrong with a pink jig. Anything that’s close to the Beau Mac SMJ #02 and you’re money. You may want to get a few in pinks, whites and peaches, all in the 1/8-ounce size.

For reference, the size of the float is equal to the inline weight plus the weight of the jig, so a ¼-ounce weight plus a 1/8-ounce jig
equals a 3/8-ounce float.

And here you go. Cast your presentation out and let it glide through the holes or slots. You do not want the jig to touch the bottom. Your float will tell you if this is the case by bobbing or going underwater. Adjust the bobber stop by 1-foot increments until you no longer touch the bottom on the drift. You are now in the strike zone. If the float goes down, set the hook!

There’s probably no more famous float fishing water than Reiter Ponds on the Skykomish River. It’s as if Mother Nature created the spot solely with the intention that steelheaders would one day discover the method works really, really well here. Again, watch and talk with other anglers. Watch where they cast, how long their line is from float to jig, etc. This is a popular place to fish and many winter-runs will be caught here this season.

While this tutorial was extremely brief, if you want to know more about float fishing, please read my book. If you want to talk to experts who can set you up within your budget, talk to Gabe Miller at SportCo in Fife and Brian Kim at Outdoor Emporium in Seattle (

“Send them down,” says Miller. “We’ll take care of them and set them up, no matter what their budget.” You don’t need to spend a fortune to get started steelheading, but once you catch that first one, plan on adding to your collection – like the rest of us! NS
