July 2, 2013

BLACKFOOT — It's a good thing that Dr. Dave Stanley doesn't equate a successful hunt with harvesting an animal every time.

Stanley recounts their adventures and misadventures in the July/August 2013 edition of "Bugle," the national publication of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Stanley hunts with a traditional recurve bow. He has tried compound bows, too, but prefers the traditional weapon. His has a 52-pound pull.

“We had a great army of volunteers who all came together to make it happen,” said Smith.

can become deadly.
Excessive heat claims more lives each year than tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and lightning combined. Senior care companies take great care to ensure that their residents are safe and hydrated in extreme temperatures.
