Frank - I just got done reading Glenn St. Charles' book "Bows on the Little Delta". Every archer should read this fine book. Not only is it interesting reading about Glenn's hunting adventures, it brings into clear focus the fact that archery hunting wasn't always an accepted form of big game hunting. If it weren't for St. Charles and the other forebearers of archery hunting, we might not be enjoying this fine sport as we know it today.
What a privilege it must have been to visit with the Mauch's and spend time at their ranch. Thanks again for originating this thread.

It's an honor--- to get to do some of the things I have done and also meet so many kind folks... and have folks read what I type. Glenn, Dick and Carol, Rev. Stacy Groscup, Fred Bear, these icons are heroes. They all love up to the word and are the real deal.

What a great trip. Friends, food, fire, and good stories. Throw in some hunting and great becomes perfect.
Thanks for sharing.
Role Models- If you need one, look in the mirror. If you don't like that one, change it. If your kids need one, tell them to look at you. If you don't like their roll model, then you have a problem.
To my sons: I find it amazing that as I try to teach you how to be a man, you are doing the same for me.

Best sourdough waffles you'll ever eat..from a vintage waffle iron and a starter Dick's kept going since the Little Delta hunt more than 40 years ago!
This is a priceless memory... good friends and good food.

Fred Bear gave Dick this book when he was preparing to build the cabin. Fred's sense of humor shines here...

I was honored to sign the curtain, a tradition started by Fred Bear in 1982... and people like Glenn St. Charles, Earl and Ann Hoyt, Ann Clark, Glenn St. Charles, and Ted Nugent have followed suit. My signature is up and to the left of Fred's and beside Theo's.

I had a Yard sale Stick bow, by Fred Bear. $5.00 in 63.
I took it out to Glenn St Charles archery store, south of Seattle to get some Arrows.
Glenn grabbed that Bow out of my hand, saying something like: "You don't want to try and shoot this thing. It'll kill you!" and went to the Back room with it.
I listened to him, his explanations, and bought a Red-Wing Hunter and Arrows from him.
He took me out back to a stack of Hay Bales. He taught me to shoot instinct. Probably took 20 minutes. ('ve passed that lesson on to several youngsters too)
Once in the mountains East of Seattle, at a big Bow-hunter Jamboree, Glenn organized a Game calling chorus at night around a big Campfire.
It wasn't long before the Coyotes were answering from the hills around us, and paying attention. A little later on that evening an Owl Flew over us.
What a Racket.
Lot of the folks were scared we'd have some of them critters down into the Camp.
I saw Fred and Glenn at several different Archery occasions. Both those guys were great story tellers.
All the good guys have to go on, and the rest of us are left to keep the memories alive!
