Bow hunting antelope is a blast. Have you shot a Boone and Crockett buck? Up your standards and it'll make the hunt more challenging.

Definitely see Devils Tower. Pictures can't begin to do it justice. Pretty much the same for Mt. Rushmore.

I'm a fan of fixed blade, but rage are proven. Nothing is going to do much good, if you hit that shoulder bone.

I prefer to hunt alone. Even with the kids (youngest is 17), we camp together, but hunt separately. The exception might be antelope. We like to hunt them together.

Call the DWR/Game and Fish/ what ever they are called there. The bear's comfort, even after she yelled at it, makes it a nuisance bear and a significant risk to her.
