I have been up in the 'Horns for the last week scouting and doing some fishing. Picked up my trail cam as well. I could not believe when I saw that the screen displayed 338 photos. I thought it had broken until I downloaded the pics. 338 photos was right. Almost all elk too. 2 Pics of a nice muley and 2 pics of a cowboy looking for his cows. All others where elk. I wish there where some bigger ones, but that's OK.

Second set of photos are of a few nice bucks we saw. 3 of them are really nice. and 2 others are small 4x4's and 2 3x3's.

The next photo is of a nice Bull we saw 3 bulls but this one is the biggest.

Last ones are of a few smaller bulls. one playing in a wallow.

We did see another nice muley but did not get a photo of him. Also saw a ton of cows and smaller bulls. A few smaller bucks and lots of moose as always. Sorry about the pics. most are with a cell phone looking through a spotting scope.

Here is a video of a satilite bull playing in a wallow. It was fun watching this guy play.

Lol
Yep.. That's what happens when you don't have insurance on your $60,000 camper and theres a fire next to it lol
I'm definitely going to keep tabs on him. I wouldn't even flinch pulling back on him and letting an arrow fly.

$450 is not bad. I pay around $8-900 for a $45000 truck a year. You must have bought that camper with cash not to have full coverage insurance on it. Must be nice.

Insurance is cheap Jen! I just bought a toy hauler, not as nice as yours but insurance is 140$ a year, money well spent! I received my summons from
Nv DMV for registration on my 03 truck a few days ago, 119.00$
I'm glad I do not live 100yards to the west or I'd be paying as much as you don!

Jen, why the heck would you spend that much on a toy hauler! What does a 60k you hauler look like?

Lol I know insurance is cheap.. I don't know why I don't have it. I have full coverage on everything else but not my camper and it's the most expensive.

It's a great camper but it doesn't seem like its worth what I paid. I think maybe I got a little ripped off but I tend to do that when I get impulsive and I want something. It's like a 30' bumper pull.... But it has a super huge water heater, water tank and aux fuel tank. They were all add ons that added up quick! And a bunch of other just little stuff. It's one of those purchases I kind of regret making but if I were to sell it, I would lose out I a lot so I suck it up. Plus, I really do like it!

I think I'd be calling the insurance man, trying to secure coverage!

If I had pics of a deer that big, i probably wouldn't post scouting pics of him until I had him on the ground! Thanks for sharing! :D

Those are sum really nice pics. I am starting to do sum research. On our next years mule deer hunt. I am looking at the bighorns. Either r or y. I have ben looking at unit 25 in y. And 50,53 in r. I have no time to scout these areas. I would take sum ideas. I am not looking for any ones honey holes. May be sum camping spots. Road conditions. Will be camping from a base camp. But I we have the gear to spike camp to. Just looking for fun hunt. And a chance a seeing sum mule deer.

$60,000 camper left all alone in the mountains and it has no insurance on it. Not the smartest thing in the world to do. Sure hope the fire didn't get to it.
