I have been enamored with sage grouse since I was a young teenager…I’ve poured through every piece of literature on these majestic birds that I could possibly find (although there is not very much)!
I know I’ve said this before, but they define the American West and everything that is wild to me…I love being in their presences and walking in the country that they inhabit!
I received this letter in the mail the other day…it is a great honor to me, and it brought tears to my eyes. I’m very grateful to Pride, Joanne, and Walter Bruning for their generous donation on my behalf to a conservation group that I love and respect!

Thank you very much!
