  1. The Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming is a great place to work. I guide there off and on in the summers when Matt Anderson needs extra help. He’s an outstanding guy to work for in an awesome location!

  2. The Social Media Intern Position is linked to a Gun Department Manager Job Opening. Not sure if this means it has been filled, or is just a computer error. Anyways, would love to apply, so just letting you know.
