The Men of Mountain View meet annually to enjoy a wide assortment of wild game and an inspirational time of fellowship. The special speaker was be Tom Claycomb.

Tom likes anything outdoor wise and fishes/hunts from Alaska to Florida. He loves elk and bear hunting but says it’s hard to beat a good Idaho backcountry flyfishing trip. He rodeoed at Texas A&M Univ. but dropped out to go pro as a bareback rider. In due time he went back to school and got a real job and ended up marrying the prettiest girl in the world.

Tom is an outdoor writer for Bass Pro Shop, has outdoor columns in newspapers in Alaska, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, and Louisiana, writes for the Idaho Deer Alliance Magazine, Mule Deer Foundation Magazine, Western Shooting Journal, some for Havalon Knives, bowhhunter.net, bowhunter.com, NBS Magazine, Western Whitetail Hunter, freelances for various magazines and newspapers  and has e-articles on Amazon Kindle.  He also conducts about 60 seminars annually at various sports shows and outdoor stores.

Tom enjoys hunting ground squirrels in Idaho with his Marauder rifle and bringing his Woods Walker pistol along on backcountry flyfishing trips for grouse.

The silent auction hosted a great number of hunting and fishing items. The best part is that all proceeds go to aid the widows, single mothers, children and many others that have needs in our communities. The main Door Prize was a Marlin Model 60 .22 rifle (must be present to win).

The wild game dinner included Deer steaks, Salmon, liver & onions, “Duck Duck Goose” stir-fry, Deer Summer Sausage and cheese, Elk Meatballs & Gravy and many others.
