This is what I've been waiting for.
« on: November 22, 2019, 09:40:01 AM »
Stood in line for a chance at a left over MS elk tag, and had already bought a eastside archery.  Could have saved the $180, but didn't lose points.   :dunno:  Placed my cards on late archery in the snow.  Solo hunt.  First kill?  From a stand?  Can I make it happen?  Snow looks like a guarantee.  Had to come home for a few days to process my late season WT on a MS tag.  Packing for return trip and planning on being at camp for entire season.   My year has revolved around this opportunity and goal.

You haven't seen my camp.  ;)  I stockpiled 2 years worth of firewood this summer.   :tup:  One winter if I get snowed in and cant make it out.   :yike:

 Chasing game all season while camping in a warm and cozy tent being able to gaze at the supremely still expanse blanketed in a shimmering coat of snow. Pinch yourself every so often so you know you aren't dreaming.

Decided to leave late yesterday.  Pulled into camp 9 hours later just after midnight.  Between freezing fog and fatigue it was a long drive.  I had hoped for more snow, maybe the first skiff will turn into something.  Not seeing the sign and camera pictures I was hoping for.  Praying for more snow.

I can't tell you how many times I've had elk hitting my camera's 3 or 4 times a day, think it's a sure thing, then go to hunt them and they're gone  *poof*


Those elk will loiter in an area for a while, then move to the next area, sometimes of their own accord or sometimes because hunters/wolves/cats take one of them out or push them.
It ain't loggers though, they'll sit and watch a guy working equipment, get out, grease equipment, start his truck to leave and not care a bit.  (hint hint)

I was traveling earlier.  Hadn't been near a cell tower.  Figured I had a chance if all the stars aligned.  Bull showed late, and snow too crunchy to attempt a sneak.  Spent a few cold hours in my stand.  If the wolves don't get him maybe next year.
