    Quick trip before the heat gets nasty

    He's definitely getting cheated. Pretty sure he showers in his underwear after gym class...

    Quick trip before the heat gets nasty

    I thought the same thing at first but alas, no. Angle/light/camera shenanigans.....

    Quick trip before the heat gets nasty

    Thanks for the replies, boys. Simple answer to the question- it was just a random placement. Long answer- I knew there are a few good bucks roaming around but glassed this up not too long ago Had no idea there were that many elk wandering around. After a bit of soul searching, I made the walk to get the shed. Took the better part of 5hours to get in out. But in the end, it was worth it I suppose. Took a different route the last time and found this on my way in been trying to find where those dang elk come from since. I think Im in half decent shape but, that terrain hurts just walking a straight line. it really takes your manhood if you're randomly walking around. Was hoping to restrict the coverage area but apparently I'll be going in with multiple purposes covering a lot more ground from here on out. Dave
  4. Took a small hike to check a camera one last time before the mother nature drops the heat hammer. This is a new spot so I wasn't sure what would show up.... no giants but, I was pleasantly surprised. Its probably worth keeping tabs on.... On the way out, I stumbled across these little treasures.. always makes it worth the walk Its going to be a long summer. Thanks for looking. Dave

    Unit 27 Bull- a quick picture tale

    Thanks for all of the replies! Five stars- would hunt the unit again. To answer some of the questions: Up until the archery bear opener, I had a bear encounter every time out. After that, they were rather scarce. I apologize for the low quality picture- lost sight of mama bear and was gauging distance to the truck vs speed of my cousin. I no doubt would have won the foot race but, Christmas would have been awkward. Just some added scenics There is actually a bull in this pic A few more trailcam and phone pics not sure how many had seen the funny shaped star- twas a weather balloon Never did find a really big bull during the preseason other than the bull huntlines brother-in-law punched the clock on. it is a deep, dark unit- it will definitely burn calories and has places that will test your sanity and desire. I did kill my bull off of water. A couple of days were hot and the elk were mute. Besides, I was tired of having my pride stomped into the mud by attempting to outrun them up and down the mountains. What I chose as a way to rest and still act like I was hunting, turned into the most work of the entire trip. Good luck to the next round of hunters out there.... Dave

    Unit 27 Bull- a quick picture tale

    Well that was fun- After spending most of the summer scouting for my 2016 archery hunt, I came away with some very valuable lessons about Unit 27 First: there is a lot more to the unit than the 403 road Most of it will punch you in the soul. But some parts will save it Second: Whether live or on memorex- Bears are alway entertaining Third: Elk can be A-holes And also Magnificent Fourth: Proper shot placement helps eliminate the whole joy of tracking Fifth: Its good to be lucky And finally: Nothing better than a successful drive home Big thanks to my brother, Curt! The 5 hour pack out would have been significantly longer without you, amigo. To those who asked- I really don't think the early rifle hunt affected the archery hunt as much as the weather and crowds. I certainly wouldn't want it to be a permanent thing- but every few years isn't as terrible as it may sound. Thanks for looking. Dave

    Bull of a lifetime UPDATED with story

    Such a cool bull- And much bigger than I thought he'd be. Big time congratulations to the hunter!!! Sadly, I was hoping he'd stay smart for one more week.... You guys did well. Makes my archery hunt a bit tougher now, though.... Ha
