Framed Giclee Print – Hailing from the high desert of beautiful Southwestern Colorado, Laurel Hatch developed a relationship with Western imagery at an early age. Her unique blend of modern style and traditional iconography has created a significant following among contemporary American western art collectors. This 16 x 20 signed Giclee print uses high contrast and unusal colors and is printed from an original painting. In combination, the framing was done by one of Gallatin Valley Pheasant Forever’s long time donors, under new ownership.  ~ Donated by Laurel Hatch Studios and Old Main Gallery & Framing

Yeti Tundra 65 – Yeti’s Tundra coolers were born out of frustration. They needed something better than bowing lids, leaking and inability to hold ice – so they created just that. The Tundra 65, like the rest of the Tundra family, is designed with the wild in mind. It’s why they’re bear-resistant, loaded with up to three inches of insulation, and boast a rotomolded construction. The Tundra 65 is Yeti’s most versatile cooler offering plenty of room and can hold a limit of trout or your prized pheasant without breaking a sweat. ~ Donated by Yeti
