Bear hunting in the rain,up high,no bear that day but the view was worth it.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I love the look on her face.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Drove past this on our way to a Wyoming antelope hunt in September.  Had to stop and snap a few photos, first griz siting for me.

Hard to enter this knowing I have 2 boys who have been extremely active this year. Wish I could enter 2 photos, one for each.

Here's one from this fall, of my son who shot his first ever early-season goose. It was a proud moment. One I'll never forget.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5
