a friend of mine came from Miami to visit so i took him out to see few critters , now he is gone to Jasper and Banff national park so i came back.
the trip was good , seen few bears and few elk cows but unfortunately not too many bulls , although i did see one the last minute but was too far to take pictures of him, he was 7x7 so it's all out war with this guy come hunting season.. can't wait !!
I like hunting all critters specially Elk and bears, how about u ?
now that elk hunting season is about to start i will stick around elk forum and will be posting lots of pictures from scouting trips until season begin. but i am definitely gonna be after the monster bull i saw yesterday , and until i get him it's gonna be a long wait ,)
glad you're back!
