Greetings all...

Just back in last night from a long trip out to Idaho...a week in the back country in the Frank Church. I ask myself again Why I go to the roughest god forsaken country on earth to hunt elk? How did it go? Incredibly well. The bulls were very vocal...on opening morning was able to call in a beautiful 5x5 and the new fellow was too excited to shoot straight....an hour of calling...and even got him to ignore the cow that started barking...but none the less...he missed. Bull bugled back at him twice and let him know that he didn't appreciate being shot at. That evening...saw a nice 6x6 on the trail...with a few cows. However...I was enjoying the hike and forgot to load the rifle. Looks like I'm off to a good start.
Well...final count...we did well for a party of 4....brought down 3 bulls and a bear...and the 4th passed on a couple of shots. I'll post a pic of my bull in a couple of days...after I drop the film off. Wishing everyone else the same success and nothing but the best of luck.
Cheers
