As a young boy growing up in the Loess Hills of Iowa, I was naturally drawn to the outdoors. With most of my free time spent hunting or fishing, I developed a passion for whitetails.

Dreaming of the Mountains

It seams like those lonely place high up in the mountains where few people have ever been call to me. When I was in second grade I wrote a short story for an assignment and it was titled “Zachary Johnson” after the greatest movie ever ” Jeremiah Johnson “. I’ve always dreamed of elk hunting along a mountain stream but with a wife an kids my hunting time and hunting money are a little short. I know one day I’ll be in those high peeks with a bow in my hand chasing those screaming Bulls.

What an amazingly beautiful place to get away and enjoy the outdoors with the love of my life. We went on several trail walks along mountain streams, got to see elk, big horned sheep an mule deer. All of which were right in the town. We spent one full day in Rocky Mountain national park driving all the winding rock roads that snake through the mountains. 11855859_10155856349690693_9203494073376980898_nJust seeing the mountains out the window is unbelievable but to be in the mountains walking the trails of years past is incredible. My wife an I love the outdoors an try to install that into our two children ” who were with grandma for the week”. The week went by way to fast , as most do! I know that I wouldn’t be where I am today without my better half. I thank her putting up with my hunting obsession and I look forward the many more anniversaries…Dreaming of the Mountains!
