    Different species same steep, rugged, beautiful country! I have seen them in the same basins numerous times.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.
    Shoot the best, Shoot PSE!

    NMBUGLER, Co does an airborne deer count during archery season. They see some monsters while flying along the continental Divide. One of the G&F guys that does the airborne count told me, You can't believe what we see up there." I hope that helps and I wish I could go, too.

    Going back to the second post on this thread, I have to ask, what's a "ribbon cliff?" Googled it and really didn't get a clear explanation. (Obvioulsy, I'm a flatlander)

    Ribbon cliffs are bands of cliffs that ripple across the sides of the basins. They are often separated by vegetation. Many times there are several of them running parallel. Deer feel secure and comfortable in the cliffs and bed on them often.

    Speaking of basins. This is the one i'll be hunting this year for elk. Should be plenty of bucks there too.
