I believe that's the name of the gentleman who owns a bunch of property in the Yakima river canyon area, east side of the highway I believe?

Is that the one with the access fee?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Eaton ranch spans a lot of the Canyon Road east side of the road from the river.

I hear that's where the big ones are.  Any sheep would be the biggest one on my wall.  Someone would have to hold my bullets to make sure I got a decent sheep.  I wouldn't need the biggest in the unit, just a nice sheep would be awesome.  I would actually try to do it with my bow and would have a muzzy as back up.

A lot has happened this month but the long and short of it is the trial was continued to 2/10/17.  Motions were heard to join the co-defendants and also to release the personnel files of the WDFW employees.  A scheduling conference was set for 1/12/17.
