August 3, 2016 – So you think you want to be a guide?

I hope your having a great summer!! My summer is going by quickly and I have seen a few flocks of Canada geese the past couple evenings, yikes fall is just around the corner.
Archie and I spent Monday running around to several stand locations putting up Chaparral signs, as of August 1 you are allowed to claim your stands again for another year and near the end of September baiting will be in full swing. Chaparral bought another quad and now it’s time to add a winch, gun boot and windshield, so that’s where my spare time will be the next few days.
Looking forward to having the camp busy again and all the excitement that goes along with hunters and filled tags. This year we will have a new face in camp as a good friend Shawn Steward will be helping out with guiding. He is an experienced hunter and can repair almost anything, Shawn will fit in nicely with our group.
I will leave you with a few pictures from the past week of Arch and I hitting the trails. It’s a little troubling when you already have your quad stuck and you get a text from Arch asking for help as he to is stuck also!! Luckily everything worked out and the day went well for the most part.
