Never know when we will be called home.

I spend seven days being guided for elk by Wade Parker. I was impressed with him not only as a guide but as a person. He had played some college baseball but when he had the chance he took the job with the Granite Mountain Hotshots. He was the son of a firefighter and really love his work as a hotshot firefighter and as a guide. I saw him again him again at a little cafe in May after his crew had mopped up a fire on the Blue Ridge and they were heading to New Mexico. We talked of the up coming hunting season. I remember how strong his arms felt as I gave him a hug. I will always remember how he talk about his faith and how he prayed we would have success on our hunt. Please say a pray for his family, his fiancee, and all the other families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots

    Sorry to hear about your guide. I always get nervous when I hear about the loss of forest firefighters. I went to college with a lot of guys that ended up in that line of work.
