Friday found us heading to a drainage that I had seen 4 bulls in only the day before. On Thursday I had seen a real big lone bull in there in the morning but lost him in one of the many finger coulees that came off the main canyon. Then at sunset I watched as three bulls fed out of the timber for the night so our plan was to be in a position by the time evening arrived to be in a position to strike. I had spent quite a bit of time scouting this drainage throughout the summer and knew of a couple bucks that would be worth going after if the opportunity presented itself and spent about an hour on Thursday watching a buck that was a potential shooter but I ultimately decided he needs to find a few does over the coming weeks.Great storytelling. Excited to hear about Schaffs deer.
Putting together a plan of attack for post Mexico. Going to carve out 5-6 days straight to get out and hit the eastern side of the unit.Schaaf.....Damn fine buck!
Ben.....You can fish and sip those south of the boarder drinks twenty years from now! Do you think that you will be able to chase those bulls of the breaks in twenty years? Hope that you will find a bull or two to ponder over before your trip down south.......good luck and I enjoyed the poem!
All reports indicate the Tuna are in, and the wahoo not far behind, so I think I'll not be pining away for those cold, windy ridges while catching big old yellowtails & eating fresh sashimi.Ben, tough it out in Mexico, there are no man card demerits for quid pro quo vaca time with the boss...
Mexico without margaritas, chorizo & bacon wrapped shrimp is not going to be the same.Elk are jerks and coulees are jackasses, and both you gentlemen are fine examples of Montana's finest sportsmen.
It must be nice to have 5 weeks to get after them, here's hoping you both finish off what you've started here.
Have fun in Mexico, but make sure it is pancreas approved fun, Mr Lamb.

It's a wicked life, but what the hell.
Yep. Yer ex just won't shut up about what a coulee you are.Quote of the day from Lamb
"Coulees are jackasses with fingers as long as your exes memory. "
Just guessing you have some knowledge with that........hee hee
May your sea legs be able to keep up with your ambitionYep. Yer ex just won't shut up about what a coulee you are.
A jaunty tale from the sea shall be told, along with a few photos of gaffed fish, hopefully.
As for now, my Onx looks like it's been peppered with #6's with all the spots I'm looking at hitting when I get back.
