Re: Yellowstone Experience - Crowds an Anomaly for 2015?

I almost admire the folks that have the balls to get within 20 feet of a bison for a selfie. They must be fearless.

Re: Turks and Caicos (Provo)

Re: Turks and Caicos (Provo)

Re: Video - Bucknasty Browns

This is a hot topic right now on Instagram and I presume other social media, basically it's pissed off a lot of locals. The Boughton Brothers are very talented and accumulated a large audience. In...

Re: Bear Spray

I always carry it out here when in certain areas including where you'll be. The cans are so light that it's hardly noticeable. Just make sure it's accessible and not buried in your pack. I put mine...

Re: Where to fly fish near Phonix?

Don't overlook the residential ponds around the Phoenix suburbs for carp and bass. If your only interested in trout then the Salt River East of Phoenix is stocked with rainbows.

It's a long drive...

Re: Couple Hours in Utah

Had a great trip to Utah and I think I'm obligated to throw up a small TR since you guys were so helpful.

Re: Flycraft ? Anyone see this ?
