Well there are 4 of us sharing space in hunting camp.

I'm the lone skunk this year with Sunday ( tomrrow being last day )

Bruce 0 bear 1 elk 1 deer 1
Mark 2 bear 1 elk 0 deer 0
Jeremy 1 bear 0 elk 1 deer 1
Kenny 1 bear 0 elk 1 deer 0



so all in all not bad for 4 guys out bow hunting on public land :) and hunting simply when we can pull some free time away from work.

well I'm off , gotta be on the road at 4 am...for the last day :)

had bulls sounding off below us this morning...what a rush.... :)

Its not about the kill, its about the quility time spent afield. So it seems like you had a great time. So good luck on the rest of your hunting season.

well we gave it a major shot the last 2 days.
My poor legs are toast.
not from number of miles hiked, but from the billy goat type slopes we ended up on.

we had 2 bulls below us, now try to figure which one to go after....went for the one on the left.

the one on the right was moving and moving down....and we knew if we followed him down...it was going to be brutle

in any case....when your standing on a slope , toes dug in..right hand extended part way out bracing against the wall...and you spot the bull below you...twisting and turning his head through pecker pole pines...and due to your position ( you can't draw your bow ) and his twisting, your looking stright down at his spine. LOL.....

well....it was a rush...but ended with no meat in the freezer.

Now how to tell my wife I'm thinking of AZ for a Jan mule deer hunt LOL....
guess I'd better get back to work and pay some more bills so I can do it.

Thanks Bruce. You got my imagination running on that slope right behind you. Like MD said it's the adventure to it and time spent out in God's Rocky Mountain chapel that makes the hunt. One more day and I'm sure you would have had meat in the freezer.

Mark:
this is the top of the mtn, where we started dropping down. we went down about 1000 vert feet and then had to hike back up....this slope isn't bad....down below was when we got into some rough spots ...and the elk.

I've got more pictures from up ontop showing the area...those I'll post later as my wife just walked out to the car informing me we are late for dinner :) ....

Man those photos tell a great story of what the Rocky's have, great shots Bruce. Thanks.

For an Ohio boy it's one thing to just be hiking in that wonderland but to be backpacking gear and a bow and quiver would be a workout. It be hard to prepare for it around here - just no real altitude nor 1000 feet hills either. Maybe next year I might try it - just maybe. I'll have to go when the snowman and rainman aren't there though :lol: only so I can get up that high and enjoy the hunt without being weathered out.
