    Season - 2020

    Tire chain advise

    I don’t know the tech specs. I just have a set of heavy duty standard chains and they have to go on the rear on my 06 gmc. You live somewhere warm where chains are not available?

    Protect your gear from being stolen?

    I would not leave a firearm in the vehicle. That said I just left my camper in nat forest while I run home for a few days. There were no guns left in it either. Yeah I have a trail cam watching it, but really it’s all a game of chance. Too bad we can’t cut off a thieves right hand, but...

    Bugling From Road Question

    Listen to Elknut. This bull was taken 600 yards from a heavily used forest service road, and closer to our camp. By a first time elk hunter from out of state In a very popular OTC unit. The elk just don’t hate vehicle traffic noise like we think.

    Holster Recommendations

    That is some artillery. I hope you have been shooting it enough to be proficient. I’m not sure if it would fit in here, but the hill people recon bag is legit for a 1911.

    A fine base camp has been set, and I have been covering some country on foot. Stripped down to a T shirt by noon every day. No elk yet. The Heat wave is about to be broken, possibly snow on Tuesday. No bugles yet. I have been doing pretty good on trash detail, anybody lose their release...

    Aspens or heavy timber? Archery season

    I’ve taken a lot of elk in the aspens, with a rifle. I have yet to fill a bow tag, but all my close but no cigar bow encounters have been in the thicker stuff. Our season is here, and I will be spending a lot of time in the thick.
