Yes that is definitely Estes Park. I haven't been back up there since three years ago. I wasn't around for the Sampson days but do remember seeing some awefully great looking bulls in velvet - it was June. I also remember reading the outrage on the last huge bull that ended up laying in the bank's lawn and the DOW officers having to finish what the poacher tried doing - same as SGM's post.
It is great to see these animals in Estes Park but I would much rather see them here in another 10 to 15 days when I have my rifle with crosshairs nailed to them!
