S.H., I should add, not all of the Colorado wardens are like this, usually just the younger ones, fresh out and trying to "take charge of the mountains". Once in a while you'll run into a veteran warden that's a true jerk and doesn't trust anyone and believe everyone is guilty of something, he just has to find it....I don't blame some of them, as I'm sure they have seen things that would shock most of us. It doesn't take to many Claude Dallas types to forever change their view of their jobs. For the most part Colorado has great wardens, friendly, knowledgable, they are just doing their jobs.
Now back to Lab, when are you going elk hunting again? Do you have wapiti fever yet?
