Aspens are turning Gold, Shuttle T's are turning red and Easton Injexion's are turning a frothy pink. Love this time of year!

Wasn't going to drag this out for a day and a half. WiFi at the camper is a little sketchy and wouldn't connect last night.

Probably more pics than prose.............

Saw some awesome country.

Ate gourmet food and drank from clear mountain streams.

Found a crime scene and called the authorities. Culprit couldn't decide whether to plead insanity or self-defense. Legal team is still counseling.

Guess there's nothing cute to say about walking up on a scene like this.............................. :rolleyes:

Several mug shots were taken. The culprit complained that it's REALLY hard to get good field pics when you're alone and not tough enough to move an elk by yourself.

Spent WAY TOO much time in my luxurious condo with rain, fog and snow hampering my attempt to remove the evidence.

All in all it was a great hunt. Lost a good buddy the weekend before and was lucky enough to spend 3 days helping his family/friends get ready for a service. 42 is way too young to go to bed and not get up. Was worried about losing half of my elk hunting days but am grateful I could help out. Backpacked in Monday afternoon and set up base camp. Had 7 bulls under 50 yards on Tuesday. Shot him that evening and spend most of Wednesday making trips to camp. Thursday was spent hauling protein to the truck. Friday morning was spent hauling camp out. I really enjoy hunting solo but have hauled my last 2 bulls by myself. That gets a little old................

Hope everyone is having a great year. We're trying to balance a few more tags with volleyball season. I'm sure we'll get it figured out. Grateful for all the opportunities Wyoming has to offer.............

Enjoyed the write up and pics. That is a wonderful looking specimen - love the walnut colored rack.
