Trout: Have done that also. I've had just about all of the elk experiences except bagging on of the dang things.
Bill: What's the deal on hazardous material shipments? Seeing as how PayPal now accepts Visa also, it should loosen things up a bit.
In general: Talked to a deer hunter @ church this morning whoduring deer season, saw the same but larger portion of the herd that I saw. He counted the two spikes, a rag horn and a dozen or so cows and calves. I only saw the two spikes and maybe 5 or 6 othes.
They must have been split up between then and yesterday.
Got a good snow up there last night. Will head back in the morning with a larger (they say [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) storm arriving about the same time I will.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

Good luck with it. The other day I finally got a cow out of the area I had a cow tag in. I was so hurried to get in on them that I didn't bring the rangefinder or even a knife. I had estimated the distance at 350, held a few inches over the spine and let fly. It ended up being a little less because I hit her through the spine. I ran out to her and finished her off. Cool thing was that with a little help I got her out 1/3 mile in one piece. Meat in the freezer! Horray. This cold weather is going to have them on the move in our region, go get em'.
I have not killed very many, and I too have been through just about every dissappointing thing that can happen. Last year one that I made a decent shot on ran up a hill only to be finished off by another hunter. Didn't end up getting one.
