The Evans clan spends a great deal of time in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park camping, fishing and rejuvenating their love for the valley. Tom occasionally will guide big game hunters into Teton Wilderness on hunting and fishing trips for elk, deer, moose and Big Horn sheep. “Fishing and pack trips into the backcountry remind me of why I live here. I call it my paid vacation. No telephones, and away from the office where grizzly bears are abundant and the occasional wolf pack or mountain lion will get your heart rate up. I love to fish and I spend a lot of time in the summer on Jackson, Yellowstone and Fremont lakes.”
