Since E4 seems to be dead for lack of interest and there's no Realtree Colo Elk hunt this year, and next fall's Realtree Wyolope Hunt is for invited stickthrowers, I decided I would take a fatherless kid elk hunting. He's 8th grade, big successful mulie hunter with his mom. But mom's afraid of takin him cow elk hunting. (elk too big maybe?)So I volunteered to do it. Gonna help him sight in on Sunday morn so he dont miss, then I took a weekend off :o to hunt with him in his season. Figgered it was a good way to scout for my own OTC bull while I was out there in 44. If nothin else it'll get me in some kind of shape for our rifle elk and mulie hunts the following two weeks in Oct. Gee maybe after I guide (can I say that word) him and guide my wife to her elk/mulie in 45 I'll apply for a CO guide license and retire into oblivion.

We had a great time finding Wolcott Colo and meeting the teen and him mom. He's a great guy and a good shooter. His Win 70 308 was off a foot to the left so the trip was worth it to sight in, he dont want to be missing any elk. He wants to be a full time guide as he lives near Piney Valley Ranch and has met Tred Barta and Dan Harrison numerous times.

I cant wait til Oct 13 to get in them hills again.

October is a wonderful month. ;)

We had a great time. Seen a doe and three coyotes on Saturday. Seen 9" snow and wayyy too much rain on Sunday. On Monday afternoon I put the lad on a 6x6 and two other bulls and 40( yeah he counted em all) cow elk. In spite of his rifle being finely tuned at the range a few weeks before, 'buck fever' caused him to miss the same cow three times. But he gave it his best. And we found a great new secret elk haven. It was a great hunt with a nice young man.

Now I am off, and off work for the next 11 days to hunt mulies and elk with my wife some.

Congrats to you Silver. Kindling the hunting fire in a young lad is great.
