Maybe that’s why I gravitated to writing and reporting as I cast about for a profession in my younger years. It suited my appearance to be behind the camera rather than in front of it, and it suited my personality to be the man behind pen instead of the guy being quoted.

You can see these short clips every Friday evening on the Versus Channel. Here’s the first one, which sets the table for our year of Record Questing for elk.

You be the judge of whether I should have stayed in print!
