The Western Hunter lives on!

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Over the last several years, I have become helplessly infatuated with hunting in the mountain states. If I could make a good living solely hunting for myself, I'd be doing it. It's what I think about when I'm awake, and what I dream of when I'm asleep. For the last 5 years, I've been a member of BGH and for most of that time, I have logged on time and time again to follow the BGH Journal and The Western Hunter Blogs. Night after night, I'd be lurking in the shadows at work, trying to read the articles on my phone. During this time I really came to enjoy The Western Hunter blog and all that Mark had to contribute. With that being said, I will have some exceptionally large shoes to fill as I take over The Western Hunter Blog. Since so much of what I do at home is research on trophy potential and draw statistics, I decided to take over the blog for Mark. I hope that many of you will read as intently as I did. As always, I'm open to ideas and I'm looking forward to reading your comments and feedback as time goes on. Thanks everybody, and good luck with your new job Mark. I'll be looking for your comments most of all. The New Western Hunter, N.S. Demiter (ndemiter)

Been awhile since I checked

Been awhile since I checked out the Western Hunter blog and SURPRISE...someone has taken over the blog.  Mark will be a tough act to follow but I'm sure you'll have some great new perspectives and insight that I will enjoy.  Can't wait to read the two new articles.  Thanks!

That's great ND!  I'll be looking forward to it!  Congrats! I get to hunt in the western states every couple of years and it is something I look forward to for months at a time

You said it well - hunting is something that becomes more than a hobby - it's a lifestyle - creeping into our thoughts every spare minute of every day! 

Mark's shoes are big to fill - I won't even attempt it, but I'll be contributing to topics on teh otherside of the nation in the Northeast Notebook blog.  Between the two of us we might begin to just scratch the surface of the depth of knowledge that Mark brought to BGH.  I'm glad to hear that the west will rise again!
