Drove a couple minutes from the camp to hunt, scouted last year when I didn't have a tag, it's all public land about as far as you can see.
I spend time in the area when I fly out to visit my father so I'm somewhat familiar with the area, he lives close to this hunting spot.
Thanks, he was smelly, my buddy was watching another water hole below me on the mountain but the herd was wallowing in one we didn't know about. Luckily I figured out the natural choke point where they were crossing over to the valley we were hunting.
Finally got my first elk, missed an opportunity at the herd bull 2 days before getting this one but with first rifle coming to a close I went ahead and filled my tag with this 5x4 bull. Shot him at 90 yards coming over the ridge from the dark timber, dropped right there.
Was a great trip, can...
I see, Blade is fairly close to me and it's always fun to go for a day or two and see what tickles my fancy. Guess I'll watch the Friday sales and if Blade happens I'll go, if not, I'll go next year, just hate to miss a chance to browse and fondle.
My wife is a case manager for the biggest hospital in Knoxville so she is considered essential, she doesn't work directly with the patients but has to go on some of the floors to get information to discharge them, when she gets home, it's straight to the shower. I'm working 3 twelve hour days...
