An Old Warrior
« on: December 05, 2017, 07:03:40 PM »
Come to realize after buying my property in 2015, that elk, specifically bulls, winter on my place.  Talking to a neighbor it has been that way ever since he has resided in the area for the past 26 years.

Couple bulls showed up last night and then again this afternoon.  This guy appears to have been around for the block a few times.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

That'd be awesome to have a backyard with wintering big bulls year after year. That would never get old and be nice to see the progression and regression.

Yes, hstorically for the most part, on me or adjacent property.  However they spend most of the time on me. :tup:   Last year some still packing mid March...see first picture, one with and one without.  They (12-14 bulls) stayed well into April as second photo shows new growth energing.   Last photo shows cows and perhaps a calf or two late June last year.
