10 days and 9 nights. It was a lot of work both in prep and in action. More lessons learned. Here's a brief recap more photo's to come, these were just on my phone.
Tammy, Jager and I arrived in Ely late Friday night, set up camp at the Prospector Casino RV park. Saturday the larger group arrived and we went to the range for the predetermined practice session.
Sunday, we set up camp, scouted a bit and of course stayed up way too late. Monday was a long day and Garner, Katherine, Andrew, Tammy, Jason, Mirvate, Dan & Mitch all headed back to Las Vegas. Garth observed that it felt like we had a giant house party and now everybody was gone. Jager, Garth and I had a few days alone as Ryan was delayed.
Tuesday and Wednesday consisted of stalking tracks and logging countless hours hiking the upper steptoe valley.
|Where are these "Elk" you speak of?|
|Garth to Jager "yeah I'm ready for bird hunting also."|
|Jager to Ryan "it's 95 degrees! Where's my beer?"|
|Jager to Alan "Elk hunting sucks!"|
Jager and I did get to witness a great chase scene with some Pronghorn. Pardon the terrible phone photo's but this was a definitely Alpha male vs a wannabe.
|I'd run from those horns also!|
|This is about 20 yards in front of us|
|Jager to strange very fast unknown creatures "HEY why do you keep poking him in the butt?"|
|Motivation to run faster?|
