Jake Adams, 21, raised in Hannawa Falls, recently moved to Nevada. "Upstate New York is where I learned to hunt and got my appreciation for the outdoors," he reports. "I went on a self-guided elk hunting trip this past August with my bow and arrow. Huge country out west, but on one of the last days of the hunt I filled my tag, as you see. I got my cow (female elk) on Aug. 6. Growing up in upstate New York turned me into the hunter I am today."
