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:

It is one place that we use.

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.

Didn't weigh him but figured 280.

Dale, how's the hides looking so far this year?

About average for early Sept, OK but not like October or spring hides.

5th Day
In the morning a good bear spotted, just as the cross hairs settled on him the bear turned and disappeared into the brush again. That was the last chance for Joe, he had to leave early at lunch to get back to work. Come see us again Joe, we'll finish the hunt!   :tup:

In the evening Dallon got on an average young male color phase and hit him hard, they started to track the bear and ran smack into it, the bear went up the nearest big tree and Dallon nailed him again, the bear returned to earth, needless to say Dallon was a very happy 17 year old with his first bear ever. Dallon's brother Gavin missed a couple bear earlier in the week but didn't get another chance, one of his best friends was killed in a car accident so they had to leave for home. Very sorry for the bad news you received Gavin. Thanks again for hunting with us Dallon and we'll see you next spring Gavin for an Idaho spring hunt, remember, the third shot is a charm!  :hello:

Logan (Jon's son) killed a bear two years ago with us and is the last hunter in camp on this hunt, he was on a really big bear twice at only 30 yards in heavy cover in the evening with Ray but just didn't quite get the shot. He and Ray are back after that same bear this afternoon and evening, I haven't heard if they found him again or not? My fingers are crossed but time is getting short, it's not looking good!  :(

Here's a "right at dusk" cell phone photo of Dallon's bear!

WA BEAR
Guide Ray and hunter Logan did not get that big bear the last evening, Logan and his dad "Jon" are going to come back for another bear hunt, they want to do a spring hunt in Idaho next time. Thanks again guys!  :hello:

IDAHO BEAR
We just started two hunts last night, the hunters arrived about 3 pm we had them on baits shortly afterward, one of the guys shot a nice bear, guide Max couldn't find the bear so went back to the house and got Brian and Ruby the blood tracking dog. Ruby couldn't find a single drop of blood, so we are pretty sure the bear was not fatally hit or possibly missed. The hunt goes on for both hunters!

IDAHO ELK
We are hunting elk in Idaho now too, we've been on bulls about every day, a few shots taken and missed on raghorn bulls, a 1x3 passed at 18 yards, and some big bulls called in but no shots were possible on the big bulls yet, always a tree in the way or something. Guide Brian had another big bull at 75 yards this morning but the wind shifted. Two guides "Roger and River" are hunting for themselves this week, they passed several small bulls, then Roger called in this 5x5 bull and River arrowed it. Congrats River!  :tup:

Update: Just got a text, Roger just missed a bull, his arrow hit a limb and we all know what that does!   :bash:

The elk quit bugling the last few days but we killed two more big bear, this bear taken by Adam measured 6-7 x 7-3, so it squared 6-11, one of the biggest this year. Adam missed this bear the first night of his hunt, as luck would have it he saw it again the second day and dropped him. Good job on not getting discouraged and getting it done Adam!  :tup:

Spike Bull passed yesterday by one hunter, another guide called in a big bull to 35 yards yesterday but they couldn't get a clear shot, bull finally winded them and whirled. We also have two first time lady bow hunters, they have seen eleven bucks and missed five so far, hunt is only half over so hoping they get more chances, sooner or later they are going to nail a buck.
