Benefit helps fellow bowhunter. (Views & Reviews).

In late September 2002, Mark Evans killed a 5-point bull elk and was feeling fine. Short weeks later his life had changed, when doctors found he had stomach cancer.

On December 14, Mark's friends did what Mark himself had done for many fellow archers--they pitched in to help. Four North Idaho archery groups--the Coeur d'Alene Bowmen, Sandpoint Archers, Selkirk Archers, and Bitterroot Bowmen--organized a benefit archery shoot and auction to help with Mark's medical expenses. While Mark's illness had left him too weak to attend, more than 300 archers showed up to raise about $12,000 on Mark's behalf.

In addition to being a respected bowhunter, Mark Evans was a fine artist. Family members have had two of Mark's paintings--one of a mule deer, one of an elk--printed in limited editions of 400. By buying one of these prints, you not only get excellent additions to your art collection, but you help the family of a fallen brother. Cost is $75. Contact: Troy or Mark Evans, P.O. Box 802, Rathdrum, ID 83858; (208) 687-1255 or (208) 704-0439.
