This week we sit down with the Colorado Good O'l Boys — Connor Patterson, Parker Fisher & Jon Comiskey — at No Limits Archery in Denver. These young men are perfect examples of having a Wilderness Attitude. They grew up fishing and camping as children and as adults, began hunting big game and water fowl. Their passion for the wilderness is evident in everything they do from teaching youth about the outdoors to starting the CO GOB and sharing their love for the wilderness with others. They share many adventures including their most memorable bird hunt in -25 degree temperatures.
