Just wanted to take a moment and fill everyone in on our adventures from last fall and winter 2014-2015.
Last fall we started out a little shorthanded. Darrel hurt his arm shoeing horses for the upcoming Elk hunt. It is the time of year that we need him most. Thanks to our Swan Valley Outfitters family, friends, and everyone who came together and worked hard, our season went off without a hitch.
Sam a long time customer harvested a really nice bull.
There were other successful hunters last fall. However, this was the biggest bull taken the 2014 “Ten Day War”.
After the general season with the help of family and friends. We were able to get both camps out without any problems. It was a good feeling to get things squared away for winter.
November is an exciting time for Swan Valley Outfitters. After months of hard work and guiding, its our turn at our chance to fill our freezers. The Cow Elk hunt was a successful one for us. Connor and Garrett with the help of Darrel and Jeremy hunted hard and harvested for our families.
We started the New Year out with some fun. A friend, (Chad) asked me if I would compete with him in a ski-djouring competition in Driggs. After 2 months of being out of the saddle I accepted. I had never pulled a skier before so we had to practice for a couple weeks. We entered to novice division and ended up 2nd place. Pretty good for our first time. It was lots of fun and I am hooked. Cant wait until next years competition.
Every February we get to ‘Give Back,” to SIBS (So important brothers and sisters) camp. Where siblings of Camp Magical Moments come and participate in activities similar to the Summers, Camp Magical Moments. This is a special camp, hosted by Anne Walsh at Hansen’s Guest Ranch here in Swan Valley. In the summer kids diagnosed with cancer come to Swan Valley and spend a week doing various activities that they would not normally be able to due to their conditions. It is our 10th year at camp with the horse program. The kids love the horses and it is a favorite activity among many campers. Special Thanks to 4B ranch and Stables for letting us use your amazing facility.
