In the last couple days I've noticed some of the bigger bucks have rubbed clean. We've also heard a few bulls bugle, the whole woods are just about to go into full-on hunting-mode.

Always a great thread, Dale. The bear in the first pic is beautiful! I can't wait to see more.  :tup:

Following along - how close was the earthquake to Yellowstone?  :o

Turns out there were 37 earthquakes centered at different areas between Soda Springs ID and Afton WY. Most were about 5.3 in magnitude, these areas are 2 to 3 hours from Yellowstone. Nick has never been around an earthquake before, scared him pretty good, he said he thought the house was coming down!  :chuckle:

The house was built in 1936, it's really pretty interesting working on it. After the work this summer I've remodeled 70% of it now, hope to finish the rest by next summer and put a new roof on top. I work on these projects whenever money and time come together.

Is this elk camp? Looking forward to it.  Maybe I should throw my tool pouch in  :chuckle:

We made it to North Carolina, we found the kid's house and unloaded the trailer. I tried to organize that deep sea fishing trip I mentioned to you at the Outer Banks out of Hatteras, I hadn't made any reservations because I wasn't sure when we'd get there and be done for sure, so I called to see if I could get on a charter, they had told me there are usually last minute seats when someone cancels, but they were booked full and no cancellations, so I didn't get to go deep sea fishing. We headed to Wisconsin, after an overnight breakdown in Indiana (dodge wobble) we got to Wisconsin. I had some work to catch up on and then it rained quit a bit so I didn't go fishing. I did buy an older North River aluminum boat, and my brother-in-law bought a boat to leave there for the next trip, we visited with Tara's family a few days and headed home with my boat, that I still haven't used. I was a pretty pathetic fisherman this summer! So no muskie! :bash:

You sure put the miles on the hunting rig glad the air condition worked. I had a good fishing season with regulations to jump through but weather wise it was nice. The fires in Montana and all over the states are going to make people explore new hunting areas. Anyway hope you have a great season as always.

Second Day
On the second day we saw a few more bear and sacked up a big off-color with another white blaze which seems to be the current trend in the bear fashion world!  :chuckle:
Jon the hunter was here two years ago bear hunting and was about the only hunter in camp who didn't get a shot, this bear was just reward for going empty on the last hunt, Jon toppled him with one shot from his 30:06 at about 130 yards. Good going Jon!   :hello:

Third Day
Sow and cubs passed of course, another shooter bear spotted but just as the cross hairs were on him he disappeared. Couple other bear spotted but too far.

Fourth Day
Another bear missed in the morning. Another bear spotted at 170 yards in the evening, it was so smokey had trouble seeing him and he slipped away with no shots fired.
