Alaska has its first homegrown red hat instructor.  Congratulations, fisherdawg, on earning your red hat! ^:)^

Hope our paths cross on the Appleseed Trail at some point in the future.

I have personally witnessed the gentleman's skills in action while on the trail.  A well-deserved promotion indeed.   Welcome to the ranks of them's that wear red!   What will you do with all the extra money from the pay raise?  ;D

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Congrats fisherdawg! I know you try to give us IIT's the credit but it was because of your well thought out plan that we were able to help you. You truly did an amazing job and everything went smoothly. I will let you know when I will be back in Alaska for summer once I find out.

Hey Jason,

Seriously, I've learned a lot from your instruction as a shooter and and it's was a pleasure working the event with you.  We ALL (vaquero, eagleriver, Pete! Taka222 & Fred too) worked as team for a successful shoot.  Best wishes on school & that summer course, be safe and come instruct when you can. O0 Tell Adam we expect him back soon and he will look a lot better under an orange hat. ;D
