Set up Camp on Colockum Last Weekend
« on: October 23, 2012, 07:08:06 AM »
  Tribes are out hunting since we saw a few gut piles either ON the road, or right next to it, and was driving  Colockum pass rd just  south of Petit, came around a corner to a GMC Sierra Ex cab with all four doors open in the middle of the road ( not quite blocking). As we drove by I suggested to the 6 N/A's  (walking back to the truck) that they might want to close the doors next time :bash:

Beautiful, I love the Colockum.
We usually camp near Shale Rock Road.

 More pics of the Table Mtn. fire area taken from Naneum Ridge just down from the first tower. the fire did not get to the Naneum side from the bottom. Stopped still headed downhill on Table Mtn. side. Looks like I'll have to do them one at a time....been waiting forever to get them posted all at once

I am getting excited to go hunt the Colockum Saturday. I love this time of year! Have you been up yet? Hope the fire is not gonna mess with to many folks. I hunt east of the black, always a good time with family.

They were up there during muzzy season shooting at everything. Herd from one hunter there was 3 dead cows along the road. Found a dead bull sunday that was shot within the last few weeks that somebody left 40 yards off the road and just cut the horns off of.  :bash: :bash:

Deer opener there were 4 of our hunting party over there on the south side. they said they had never seen so many elk out  bugling, meandering, and not caring about their presence. My nephew called me on his cell phone while on a walkabout Sunday morning (10-14) at about 8 AM and I could hear the bulls bugling over the phone. By  last weekend they mostly became ghosts. Those critters aren't stupid, and the N A's let 'em know we're coming soon. Good luck to all!

Not quite as moronic and incoherent as the vast majority of your posts.

Your posts might mean something if you were working to help with a solution like Plat and others.  Instead you perpetuate and antagonize, and push it in peoples faces..  you seem to think it is ok, to KILL NOT HUNT (because what happens up in the Colockum is not hunting for the most part) to excess a herd of elk the rest of us PAY to manage, and someday maybe get to hunt.  All you do is reap the benefits, with no thought or care to future generations. 

By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'.

Really huntbear...  i went to all your meetings in ellensburg.  I hunt..  ive been over an over with this with courts and game wardens.   you guys think its ok to thrash and steal from my camp just because people figured out who i am and where i camp.  That shows a lot of class.      :bdid:
