Mark also picked up great archery elk tags in his home state of Montana and New Mexico... a busy fall was shaping up. One of his friends also hit the tag lottery and drew a Archery Only Dall Sheep tag in Alaska's Chugach mountain range... Mark was invited to help on the hunt as well as photograph the adventure. Mark's also been invited to photograph a rifle elk hunt in New Mexico! In the meantime he's got three antelope tags in Montana and a deer tag that he'll be documenting. Mark's father also has a special elk hunt in the Montana Breaks that Mark will be participating on. To sum it all up in two words... this is Mark's "Dream Season", one he's been preparing for since he harvested his first elk at age 12. Mark's the Marketing Director for Mystery Ranch Backpacks in Bozeman Montana. He's a great writer, and also a highly recognized professional photographer in both the outdoor and hunting industries. He's climbed the highest mountains on the continents of both North and South America, caught 12 pound brown trout in New Zealand, and packed out lots of elk... his photos capture the essence of the experience associated with his adventures and Outdoor Life will follow his entire "Dream Season", LIVE with daily photo galleries, blogs, and video updates almost as they happen.
