the high land meadow we were at
Elk Rub anyone?
How tall is it?
I find Elk around these type of trees everytime seen anything like them?
Area I kicked up a small bull in tonight
Looks a little bit more wet since I was there with you last. I'm gonna come over tomorrow about 12-1pm to go hunting with you again if that's alright with ya? Let me know.
I have to tighten up the upper ball joint on the driver's side of my pickup and maybe install the new brake pads while I'm there before I go anywhere too far.
What's that bulb looking thing on the tree?....
Nice pics... thanks....
I had just put the fact that I'm not going Elk hunting this year out of my mind and then you had to post those pics. That looks exactly like where I go in Colorado! I think I'll need therapy now.
What therapy is there for drooling?
I don't know, but I will need alot of it.
So much for that case of TP you stored last week---
Nice pics man, but I didn't see any Elk!
Sorry Valkman didnt think anyone would like pics of the cows. So i have been skipping them and hunting on for the " BULL"
Quig, how many elk can you take? If you take a cow can you also take a bull? That sure is a lot of meat on the hoof, and it appears to be in bow range unless that is zoomed in.
Sweet - I've only seen bull elk once and was amazed at how big they are! Cleaning them must be fun.
A lot of the white tails around here get up to the neighborhood of 250 on the hoof so after gutting them I just put an orange vest on them and carry them out across my shoulders. I think that might be a bit challenging with those critters though. lol
Thats one thing that is at least a nice change in the game laws around here now especialy if you have a cell phone. Untill last year you had to take the animal, in tact other than that it could be gutted, to a checking station before you could skin it, quarter it or anything else. Now you can phone it in and check them over the phone includeing from a cell phone in the field if you can get a signal. So if its too big or in to bad of a place for getting it out we can take them out in chunks now if we wanted to.
yup a big bull will be up around 1k pounds on the high end.
its all back packing here.
I've yet to experience the daunting task of packing one out, with only 1 season under my belt, I'm told it takes a few seasons to get your 1st bull, unless you're lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time.
it can happen at anytime, or never .
I helped haul one out of the Hoback Range in WY many years ago. Crow flight, about 1/2 mile to the roadhead. Double that with the ups and downs, then add 7000 feet altitude, it was not a trivial task, even dressed, skinned and cut up. Four of us packing and dragging took a full morning. I'll help eat, but the packing days are over. That 1K pounds might have been what we took out. Memory tells me the hide alone was 200 lbs. Well, I was impressed, anyway.
