Choosing the right state for a business is therefore crucial to its success.

Park City Moose - Photo by Craig Reece

Look who Craig ran into on one of his hikes! 

"This big boy was actually in Park Meadows about a ½ mile from my house. When he came out of the bushes it sounded like a tractor was coming towards me! 

It was definitely an adrenaline rush. He was well over 6 feet at the shoulders. I think he may be the same young Bull that visited by back yard last fall. I did not get his name on either meeting. Gotta Love Park City."
