Emilie Cram worked for an outfitter in Wyoming -- where her jobs included packing mules, quartering elk, and pretty much anything else needed on guided hunting trips. When she took up a rifle herself, she found that even after so much time in the field, there are STILL questions it helps to be able to phone a friend for. Emilie also made good on a lifelong infatuation with Maine's seafaring culture by learning to lobster... which is fascinating. Trust us on this one!
