Basic Information

I am a retired police officer from Minnesota. I work as a wilderness canoeing guide for the BSA during the summer and have an obsession with hunting out west. So far, I've got three great 6X6 elk and three 4X4 mule deer. This years hunt is for my first antelope. I use a guide for elk, but DIY for deer and am always looking for new hunting partners. I hope that it's because I wear them out instead of other reasons.
