    I was invited on an elk hunt to Idaho in October of 2020. I just picked up a used Hoyt Nitrum 34 and it's bare.

    Looking for info on sights, rests, stabilizers, and all the rest.

    Looking forward to what the forum has to offer.

    I'm between Wyoming and Forest Lake, just north of the Sportsman's Club.

    Yes I was, I was on a corn field field fire just south of Cedar Creek when the Carlos Edge fire started. I saw the plume and heard the size up on the radio and released the helicopter we had on that fire to go to the other fire, I was on that fire for the next 3 days straight. 2000 was a crazy fall we could drive the edge of Cat tails with F550 fords with 300 gallon tanks without getting stuck. It was a fun 20 years working fire, I got sent all over the country and Canada, was involved in the recovery of Columbia when it went down in texas. My favorite was the Alpine Lake fire in the BWCA, using a boat motor past the wilderness boundary was fun every day.

    They gave me a Ford 550 diesel to drive with lights and sirens, it was as fun as a job could be, it was an absolute pleasure I worked with some outstanding individuals.

    I remember when all that went down. That was the year I graduated High School. Thanks for what you did, Sota!
