Grand Junction, CO- “Holding off the wolves” was not in his vocabulary before, but it became apparent the moment he stepped on the line to shoot his first round of competition at the 33rd annual Big Sky Archery Open in Grand Junction, CO June 15, 2013. It was a definitive moment in time for Jeremy Terhune, from the small town of Rozet, Wyoming. Terhune had the feeling this weekend definitely belonged to him.
