    I was going through some video from last seasons 2 week OTC public land solo archery hunt and took some screen shots to share. Nothing fancy. I moved camp 4 times following the elk I saw lots of Elk just could never get a shot of either of the two I was hunting. I got close but there was either a limb or tree in the way or the shot was two far. Still was a great hunt. Some of the photos may be blurry due to light and being video screen shots. Enjoy.

    The tent set up simple one man tent. Solstice a very good tent for the money but not my favorite.


    Living quarters. I keep a change of cloths and a few other essentials in the tent with me.




    My pillow is the sleeping bag stuff sack with my down vest inside.

    I always set up a light weight lean too if I can. I like to keep my pack and bow under it at night. It also make a good cloths line. I also keep my food and garbage up in a tree a little ways from camp.



    You can see the edge of the stream on the left of the picture. This is one of my favorite camping spots. Great water at 8500ft and is really convenient

    What a difference the years make? This camp photo was taken back in the late 80s about 8 miles from the pics above. It was my first archery Elk Kill in Montana.This was taken in late September about 4 miles from the truck. We went in to prep the Elk. We were young and not as prepared as we are these days. It was snowing and we didn't plan on staying the night but decided to stay. We only had space blankets and made some sleeping quarters with limbs under some trees near the fire. It was actually pretty comfortable. Got to love the old Swiss army wool cloths!! You can see one of the sleds with the elk meat stacked up. Even then the plastic sleds were the heat in the snow.
