Hunting is among us so remember to please ask landowners before you hunt, not afterwards. It only takes one person to ruin it for everyone else. That said, if you have any pictures to share of your hunt, get it to me or even the story of your trophy, no matter the size, be it the first one or many, I still want to hear it.
My sweet ’16 quote of the week is “Helping just one person may not change the whole world, but it can change the world for that one person.” Vance Hawk, son of Carl and Dana Hawk of Colorado and grandson of Amy (Clemens) Cooper and the late Duane Clemens, formerly of Riggins, now of Colorado, has completed his CRO training and has received his beret for Special Forces! Vance went through two years of hard training of survival and rescue. CRO is the Air Force equivalent of Navy Seals. Congratulations, Vance and family!
