Elk hunt recap

It was a tough season. Early snow pushed elk down to the private land leaving us very few elk to chase.

If it wasn't for the Rookie from the great nation of Texas we would have been skunked.


First, this is what the country looks like...

Rookie, if you make it in here...nice job, you represented your fellow Texans very well in the big woods. You are welcome back in my camp anytime.

    Great pics Lew. Thanks for sharing. Wish we would see more of this type of post.

    Were you guiding or were you hunting also?

    Did you notice the bolt is on the wrong side of your rifle?[;)]

    I'm heading for South Texas in January and will post pics when I return. Best part is my 19 year old stepson will be going with me for the first time. The kid lives and breathes hunting and fishing.

    One day I hope to hunt Elk. One day soon...

    South West Colorado, unlimited over the counter unit so the exact location is top secret.[;)]

    Not guiding, just hunting with a buddy, a very lucky SOB buddy. I wish I was guiding, then I would have an excuse to not shoot anything. Have fun with you stepson. I think teaching the next generation to hunt is the key. Glad to here he is into it already, have a great time and post some pics.

    Great Pictures
    Anytime you get to spend time in that kind of country with friends and/or family you didn't get skunked even if you didn't get the game -- You got memories for a lifetime [^][^].
    The "Rookie" will never forget that hunt either [:)].
