I live mainly in WY with part-time in AZ, not for snowbirding as our cabin-house in AZ is at 8,000 elevation in the pine country of the White Mountains.
I have been a full-time author for 30 years with 30 books, including one novel and a couple more in the mill. I live with wife Judy in both WY and AZ. I have my own PH license in Africa and hunt/guide two-plus months every year.
I started shooting the longbow as a child, tried the compound for a time, went back to sticks. My favorite bow of the hour is a Herb Meland Three-Piece Takedown Longbow with two sets of limbs. My favorite bowhunting is simply backpacking into a spot and "living off the land" for a week or so on game in season. My longest trek was two months in Mexico with my partner, the late Ted Walter. We ate well. I love the stickbow!
