    You better get an elk right quick like or you're going to run out of food. That should be ideal incentive to get it done!

    I’m running on empty trying to get out of here, crazy busy today. Everyone’s acting like I’ve already been gone a week. Lol
    About 5-6 days of cold camping should bring me down for food. Without Verizon I doubt I will have phone again.

    10-4 on the phone. I have a long drive ahead of me with a brutal climb when I step out of the truck. I’m in good shape after the training exercise I just had or I wouldn’t attempt this. Thanks for the fun guys, can’t wait to get back and work. Lol

    Them Missouri bucks ain't in the rut yet.
    Those rocky mountain elk are!
    I like to try n mimic a young bull with a couple few cows, it may not drag the heard bull out but it sure as hell can get you a good satalite.
    Good luck.

    IMG_1502.JPG Had a setback today, my logging road was destroyed to restore wilderness area. Plan A won't work. I'm pretty exhausted from a futile attempt but not discouraged. Walking in from the road early morning to assess things. Muzzle loader season is over tomorrow so looking forward to good week for hunting without the 4 wheeler gang riding the road below.

    Edit: walked to the upper slide area you see in the picture. I'm whipped. No elk to be heard or seen. Very dry and hot this year. Can't get pics up. Going to bedding area tomorrow.

I searched for another place to move and it’s all like this. They seem to be preparing for the place to burn. I did go back up into the bedding area and spent all day hunting a spring in the hell hole they hide in without any sightings of animals. One of my guys from the previous trip had a heart attach after we returned so it’s not too smart to do this alone. With a report of burden at home to accommodate my adventure I drove all night to relieve them. Time to find a new place to hunt elk

    Guess the pictures dispel that theory! Looks like what is left of the dark timber. Sure hope Mike doesn't hold it against us for sending him back out there!
