There are all types of deer hunters. Those like me that love venison profess that any mature, healthy buck or doe is a candidate for the freezer and ultimately chicken fried venison steak.

Meanwhile, a landmark bipartisan proposal now moving through Congress, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, would bring the resources needed to save this species and hundreds like it.

Each firefighter represents an individual firefighter who lost their life on that fateful day, and each firefighter carries the nametag of a fallen firefighter. “We climb because they climbed”. We promised we would never forget!
