2017 Pheasant Hunt with Chairbound Sportsman

Written by WebAdmin on . Posted in Uncategorized

This is one of the greatest privileges Bonneville Asphalt has been a part of.

Chairbound Sportsman is an organization that creates hunting, fishing, and outdoor opportunities for wheelchair bound individuals and Disabled Veterans. They give them the ability to go out and enjoy the great outdoors.

 

 

Being an avid sportsman I could not imagine not being able to go out to enjoy the outdoors. Since I’ve been working for Bonneville Asphalt I have had several opportunities to go guide on pheasant hunts for this organization. What a great privilege to see the passion and excitement in these gentlemen and it is such a blessing to be able to go do this.  Here is another fun and great pheasant hunt haul.

We are also proud to see the folks from the Chairbound Sportsman Organization in the news. Check them out…

2017 KODIAK EXPERIENCE

Written by WebAdmin on . Posted in Uncategorized

We again had the pleasure of taking family, friends, employees, customers, and vendors up to Alaska this year. Kodiak Island is known for its beauty and is called the Emerald Island. It’s also known for its big Silver Salmon. They are hard fighting sons of guns and just a hoot to bring them in. The town of Kodiak is a small town on the island. It has about 7,000 people and it reminds me of the 60’s or 70’s. We go for the genuine camaraderie, local cuisine, sightseeing (even bears), and just generally enjoy the fishing experience.

This was my third time up to Alaska. Every time I think to myself this could not get any better. And I am proven wrong on this trip I had my father accompany me and what a blast. The fishing is incredible from fishing the rivers for silver salmon. To going out in the boat and catching halibut rock fish, King Salmon Gray Codling cod the list goes on. ~anonymous guest

These trips are such a first-class trip without the first class price from the moment I landed to the moment I left I had a great great time. ~Russell Johns

Even though I have guided many trips each year this trip we thoroughly enjoyed the company of approximately 45 folks coming with us to Alaska on our annual yearly trek. It was great getting to see them have a new experience and create fun new memories with family and new friends. Collectively they brought about 3500 lbs of halibut and salmon home. Kodiak Island is a very beautiful place with great people there. We are looking forward to our trip again next year. ~Shaun Heaton

First Pheasant Hunt

Written by Bonneville Asphalt on . Posted in Blog

Shaun Heaton, co-owner of Bonneville Asphalt, is a man with a big heart.  He has teamed up with the division of Natural Resources to help young families enjoy their first pheasant hunt. The Fabert Family sent Shaun this note along with some awesome pics.
“First of all, thank you so much for the bird hunt with my Family.  Braxton and Bailee both told me that was one of the best days of their lives later that night.  Megan also had a great time even if she missed her shots. I appreciate your time and teaching to my family.  Hunting is something that I am so excited to do with my kids and you and your dogs gave them a great experience.
We would love to do another hunt with you soon.  My kids also cant stop talking about how smart and cool Walt and Daisy are.  They want to get a bird dog just like them. Thanks again for everything.
Jason, Megan, Braxton and Bailee Fabert”

Introducing the puppies

Written by Bonneville Asphalt on . Posted in Blog

Shaun Heaton (co-owner of Bonneville Asphalt) loves his huntin’ dogs.  So he is delighted to announce that his award winning female, Belle, had 9 puppies on August 30th.  All of the puppies are AKC registered.  Both Belle and her mate, Walt, come from Champion Lines and are amazing on hunts. Belle and Walt both placed in the NSTRA dog hunting trials. Walt is one of the most intense dogs Shaun has ever worked with.  He hunts hard, his points are intense, his backs are solid and he ranges phenomenally well. Belle comes out of the Walnut Hills Kennels in Georgia and is a solid hunting dog in her own right. She has placed in the NSTRA trials in both Utah and Arizona.  Both Walt and Belle have qualified for National hunting trials. If you’re interested in getting one of the dogs from Shaun, call 801-420-0595.

Bonneville Asphalt owner, Shaun Heaton, has organized a HUGE Gala for the Boy Scouts of America Utah National Parks Council.  The Utah National Parks Council wrote up a really nice feature all about Shaun and his beekeeping. ****** Shaun Heaton started smoking at age four—smoking bees.

Beekeeping is an important part of Heaton’s family legacy. His great-great grandmother began raising bees from a pioneer colony originating from Mormon settlers. Beekeeping is not native to North America; in fact, the Indians referred to honey bees as the “white man’s fly”.  Honey bees arrived in the 1600’s, but did not reach Utah until 1848. The Beekeeping Merit Badge was offered by the Boy Scouts of America from 1915 until 1995. It was one of the first merit badges Heaton earned. To read the rest of the article go here.
