North Dakota Oil Field

Early morning has arrived at Oil Rig 23 located in Stanley, North Dakota. The morning shift  reported at 5:30 A.M. to start their day.

Son-in-law Justin has taken a job with a company called Bronco Drilling. His first assignment is on rig 23...

In the words of his wife," He is a floor hand, which is a grunt that helps where needed.
Tuesday, he was scrubbing buildings, helping rebuild motors, and working chains.
He works 7 days on and 7 days off. Justin stays at a catered camp with everything being provided for free."
 Stanley, North Dakota, is about 45 miles West of Minot, and has become a very active area for oil drilling developments since 2007. They are presently hiring new recruits to fill the vacancies.

Justin's cell phone self-portrait to let us all know his job isn't going to be one of working in a spotless environment. Oh the joy of laundry when he goes home!

The Rig Crew is able to request the types of food provided for their daily requirements. Quite a perk for these busy guys.

The work day ended at 6:00 P.M. and a new perspective of the oil derrick was visualized as the shadows at the other end of the day were starting to get long... :)

Thanks Justin... Great pictures from your phone!

Letter from the desk of Ray Scott - The Whitetail Institute of North America

I would like to send this out to all the hunters that visit my site. Maybe you have heard of ,  but if you haven't, an introduction by one of the companies I frequent has caught my attention, and I wanted to pass along the information .

It appears there is presently some outdoor product suppliers that are donating items to this  family oriented hunting website for monthly drawings.

Please read further to find out what products could  possibly become apart of your must haves simply by registering to become a member if you aren't already. Thanks for taking a look! ;)

Dear Fellow Hunters,

I'm writing to let you know about a website a friend of mine started called This site is a lot like a real hunting camp. It's a great place for the whole family to talk about hunting and learn from each other in a clean, fun & family friendly atmosphere. And best of all, it's free!

There are lots of hunting-related sites on the web. I have decided to help get more recognition, though, for one main reason: I believe in what they're doing. It is designed to be educational and fun for hunters of all ages. And, it does it in a family atmosphere - foul language and other inappropriate things are not allowed at any time. In a nutshell, is a place where the whole family can learn about hunting, take advantage of all the tips and tactics used by hunters across the country, and most important - have fun together.

I mentioned that I have decided to help get more recognition because I believe in what they're doing. That's why my company, The Whitetail Institute, and other industry leading companies such as Hunter Safety Systems, Dead Down Wind, American Broadhead Company, Kolpin Powersports, Peep Eliminator, Bowie Outfitters, The Placita Ranch and many, many others, are donating products for them to give away free every month! To be eligible for free products, all you have to do is register at That's all!

See you at


Ray Scott
President, Whitetail Institute
