Great hike and elk shed.
« on: April 16, 2007, 04:22:55 PM »
Took a long hike Sunday and was wondering if I would find anything.  That is nothing new, I get skunked often.  The weather was sunny, but the wind kept the temperature down.  I haven't seen very many other antler hunters, but the lack of antlers on my pack is evidence that they're  around.  Maybe I just walk past the antlers.  This time, around noon, I was scanning the area around me with the binos and this antler just seemed to appear.  I was very grateful to find one and since I was as far as I wanted to go, I turned around and headed back to the truck.  I walked through some likely spots, but one was all I came out with. 

Another angle.

VERY nice.  Do you love it when you are standing there and looking, and then all of a sudden there is one right in front of you out of no where.  I'd probably be sick knowing how many I walk by.  Looks like a great day for a hike, and more rewarding than oyu might think.  Thats a great find.  I don't know how many hikes I've been on and found NOTHING.
