Q: Final Comments:
A: The big tent was rarely used to it’s full effect for a social space. If BHA could get some more relaxed seating in the back area (chairs, inflatable couches, whatever) if would give people a chance to just hang out and socialize comfortably

All in all it was awesome and I’ll be back next year. Couple tweaks and it’s going to be way better than Boise was or could be!

Q: What would you like to see less of at Rendezvous?
A: Less down time and maybe more things under the big tent when the sun is blasting all day

Q: What would you like to see more of at Rendezvous?
A: This isn’t a knock at all because I know you all had a short window to get rende put together this year. At times it definitely felt a little too unstructured, there were chunks of time with nothing really going on. Like my last comment, if you can get multiple educational or interactive sessions like the meat prep, Hank shaw cooking, pack dumps, more panels, etc going on all day it would be awesome!

Q: Hunting, Angling and Wild game village demonstrations and education • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: On Saturday morning, with Hank shaw cooking and like 3 meat prep tables going I felt like Rende really hit it’s stride. The pack dumps were cool too. If rende had felt that educational and packed with engaging opportunities like that going on all weekend I would easily say it’s a can’t miss trip

Q: Corporate Partner booths • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Most groups were really interested in engaging with attendees

Q: Location of event • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: I guess I’ll put this here.

I would recommend BHA strongly consider doing an indigenous land acknowledgement to kick things off. Paying tribute to the native community that occupied and cared for the land before us is a powerful and respectful practice that honors our ability to live, work and recreate on public land. It also demonstrates our commitment to hunters of color among us or watching us. Especially with the Blackfeet tribe engaging in the Bison break down, it would really be a powerful message that we see them, honor them and acknowledge they are here and thriving.

Q: Raffles/Auction • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Improve nothing. Great prizes, drawing was quick and painless…just waiting on my Weatherby I won!

Q: Camping • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Camping was great, site 2 had a blast!! Waste/water were great

Q: Campfire Stories • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Campfire stories were great. The amphitheater was a great venue for it. Keenan brought down the house and the first lady (missed her name!) Also told HER story which was totally different than anything I had heard before. Eclectic storytellers really stepped it up

Q: Wild Game Cookoff • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Cook off atmosphere this year was super cool. Very laid back and able to engage with the competitors before, during and after a lot more than when I was at a Boise rende

Q: Awards Presentation • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: By that point, if you’d been there for a few days, the heat and sun was getting pretty brutal. We tried to grab some shade to watch it but we’re encouraged to go back out in the field to be supportive of the awards. Little rough

Q: Panel Discussions • What did we do well? • What needs to be improved?
A: Wanted to attend these but it seemed scheduling was difficult to nail down when things were happening. The amphitheater wasn’t really center stage for the weekend so it’s location kind of made it an afterthought
