  •                             SO OFTEN IN MY LIFE, the adventures I’ve been fortunate to experience have started with questions. For example, “What’s over that ridge?” or “Can I climb that mountain?” The beginning of my adventure for Alaska-Yukon moose was no different. It began more than 20 years ago… Read More

  • On May 16th, 2014 I set out into the mountains of Montana with the hopes of finding a black bear. It was a beautiful day and many of the sensations were familiar—the pack pulling at my shoulders, my hunting clothing stretched against my skin, my eyes pressed to optics scanning the mountainous terrain.

My feet were propped up on a wooden bench a few feet from a small stream and my hat brim slid down over my nose shading the folded arms of pure relaxation.
