Great story and awsome pics.

Great story and awsome pics. I love the mountains when they have a light dusting of snow on them. Pronghorn that high is crazy. And you can't beat a 25 yard blood trail. Man I need some more elk meat.

Not sure how I missed this

Not sure how I missed this thread. Nice to hear that another Fort Collins guy had some success on elk this year. I have heard enough of my fellow students complain about the hot weather and a bunch of other excuses. Congratulations on your cow. That's a drag that your girl friend was not able to get one but hey, atleast she was right there for the exciting part. That is great to hear that the District Wildlife Manager for your area was nice enough to give you a ride. That is pretty sweet. Sounds like our dad's are a lot alike. My dad is getting up there but he just keeps amazing me. I had to go light and shed my pack and gear to chase down my cow and he hiked the mile over to me with his and my gear! Then he helped me pack her off the mountain in a blizzard. He is a stud.

Enjoy that meat. There is nothing like it on this planet. And thanks for the great story and awesome pictures.

Great story!

Great story, Underwater Hunter....

Very nice photos, also!

Sounds like a lot of work, too - super that your Dad, Son and girlfriend were there to help and also, of course, to share in the hunt.

You are so right about the dash in between - we need to do all we can to leave an indelible mark on our family and friends while we are here.

Looks like a great wahoo you speared in your profile photo- where do you fish / hunt?

I fished and dove the Bahamas for about 14 years... early 90's to mid 2000's. Great photo there too!

Jim,

I Freedive a lot in Baja California.  My favorite place to hunt is La Paz around the Island of Cerralvo.  I believe the wahoo in my Avatar went 65 pounds.  I have been a spearfishermen for 15 years.  I build spearguns as a hobby and in the summertime I travel all over to spear and test gear out.   I would love to see and hear some of your stories.  Your welcome to post them here on my thread.  

Thanks

James
