And we haven’t shot each other yet, or pushed each other into a lake or trout stream, although we both admit we have thought about it from time to time. Jake “Moose” Vavra is a six-foot-five, 265 pound Engineer, Farmer, Business Man and Publisher. (He used to just weigh 250 pounds, until I found out his scale only went that far!) And what hasn’t happened to us in many years of hunting and fishing together just isn’t worth mentioning.< Less
