    sorry to hear that ntspdy...they had told me there was a good bull hanging out in there. While we were up there hunting there was very little bugling going on, I think they rutted early this year. Maybe next year...

    Hi guys. This is a bummer. I missed the Pecos and have been continually checking this thread for photos. I think my favorite place on earth.

    I'm checking in from the other side of the country........Shapleigh, Maine. Just concluded 8 days scouting, 7 days hunting in New Hampshire for moose. Very rough logging terrain. Totally different hunting culture and traditions. Calamity of errors and a horrible guide I hired to extract my moose destroyed my cape. But antlers and meat survived ordeal. A logger ended up saving my hunt. He put me on a toad of a bull moose I was able to harvest on the 2nd to last day. Way top end bull. Feel very lucky.

    When I drive home to Illinois aat least I'll be closer to the Pecos. Hope to draw next year.

    You can find me on there in the middle. Nice result but the entire mountain experience was nothing like the Pecos!

    Hi Taz, How was your deer season this year? Wish I had decent private to hunt late season. The public is absolute garbage by this time of year. Will go down to JEPC to hunt/scout late Jan/Feb.

    Meat wagon still alive and kickin at 248K miles. Runnin like a champ.

    My NH hunt was much like my Pecos hunt last year. Almost no action the whole hunt, then bam, toad down. Not real fun but good for wall decoration.

    NH was an OIL tag, and I hope to return to the Pecos in 2013. With the new NR deal, I'll likely have to do a drop camp this time.

    Here's a better view of the rack. I was incredibly lucky. Paddles are about as good as NH gets. Real nice tines and mass too.

    The first idiot I paid to extract the moose tried to drag it out 1/4 mile with a chain saw winch and 400' of rope. He trashed much of the cape and then almost killed himself when the winch broke free and flew 100'. What an idiot. I ended up hiring a logger to come get it with his skidder. Far cry from my Pecos "extraction"!
