Thanks, I'll be praying for myself! The pictures of the area are greatly deceiving. That terrain is a LOT steeper than the pictures present it to be. I gopher and coyote hunt there all summer trying to get in shape, but it really doesn't help much lol. The elk there are just too smart and can see too much.
This was my favorite photo of the 2010 season. The elk were scared to death of something for over an hour and we see this come over the ridge. We laughed for a good 20 minutes after we figured out what it was that had them spooked. We thought for sure it was a pack of wolves.
And this was from a different location, but just shows our group's luck for the year. We spot a small herd of elk at first light, start moving into position for a shot on the herd bull, and this truck comes flying up the road. We heard several shots and found out the guy had a cow tag. OY!
