Posted by on in Public Blog

Picture this: a hunter is stalking a herd of elk, but they disappear in the timber. He has no idea where they are.

The deck is 10 feet above the lawn, so I was in no danger.

He would then bring up a live trap, hopefully catch the bear and relocate it somewhere else. I remembered to call him, and I told him there was a bear on the lawn,

My First Story Ever

Posted by on in Public Blog

As I was flying out of Salt Lake City on my way home from the SHOT Show a couple days ago, I looked out the airplane window and saw a big lake below. Memories flooded through me as I thought about a day at that lake many decades ago.
