Dean McAtee had the program today. He invited Emily Finch (GCHS senior) to share information and photos from her recent bear hunting trip. Emily dropped a 400-pound bear in the boreal forest of Canada with a single arrow. It could be one for the record books. Her story was recently featured in the Jefferson Herald. Thanks to Emily and Dean for a very interesting program!
