Hunting with my dad in the Blackfoot

Favorite/most memorable hunting/fishing story? 

“Momma, you got an antelope!” my six-year-old twins yelled as they ran towards me. Their hunter’s orange glowed in the setting sun. It was the last day of our hunt in the Centennial Valley. It took a while for us to figure out how to hunt “lopers” here, and we thought we’d come home empty handed. But as they sun started to set on the last day, my buddy and I each got one on the count of three. We were all grateful to be together in this beautiful place with food for the freezer.

Favorite River/Hunting snack?
Halloween candy

If you had to pawn everything- what hunting /fishing item could you not live without?
Shooting sticks

Who took you on your first Hunting/Fishing trip?  Do you still hunt and fish with them today?
My dad. Yes, he is one of my main hunting buddies.

What is your advice for younger generations?
Take care of the places you love.
