Dear President Trump, Generally speaking, protecting the environment has long been painted as a partisan issue with liberals fancying themselves as a white knight watching over our natural environment all the while painting conservatives as the barbarians at the gate ready to pillage and plunder all things in the name of special interest driven economic advancement. Neither of these is completely true or false. As an American citizen and avid outdoorsman, environmental… Read More
Archery Dall Sheep hunting is a daunting undertaking. As I consider all the necessities and possibilities of this hunt, it seems huge.

A solid hook set, followed by a few minutes of gently playing the situation out and you are blessed to bring a beautiful 22 inch Brown Trout to hand…. Read More
In our family we have a “tradition” of sorts. That is if two occurrences qualify as a tradition. To clarify, there have only been two occurrences because I only have two sons and this “tradition” was a father/son graduation trip of the son’s choosing.
