Provo River Clean Up Wrap Up

We want to send out a huge thanks to everyone who got involved in our Fish For Garbage Provo River Clean Up. It was a great success. We couldn't have done it with out you... A lot of trash was taken away from the river. We filled two dumpsters and a trailer full of garbage. Amongst all the flip flops, cans and plastic bottles we found some interesting junk as well, a sunken canoe, torn raft, blown out tires, money safe, mattress and inner tubes. Thanks again for taking time out of your busy week and giving up a Saturday to help clean up after other people. We had a great time and hope you did as well. Next years clean up will be held on Earth Day May 22. Mark your calendars. :) A big shout out to our partners.

Waterfowl Hunting!

Over the past couple months I have fallen in love with waterfowl hunting. I've always wanted to do it but never got the chance to go. It's hard to explain why it is so much fun waking up at 4am to go hike through marshes full of stink mud and cat tails. Its makes no sense that I would find enjoyment out of  hanging out in the cold and getting soaked at the same time. But I can't sleep at night because I'm thinking of hunting. Its been exciting learning a new sport while geeking out on the internet. I am hooked. Here's some photos of the crew out hunting. I have to thank Luke, Branden, Ross and Alec for putting up with my noisy duck calls. I'm told it sounds like mini mouse getting raped.
