Well, Len... a successful hunt depends on a lot of things as we both know. Let me tell you those pictures you took are beautiful, and to me its the culmination of a fantastic hunt. To be in that spot where you took them; is what us hunters live for, and not just for the kill. Many times in the mountains we stop at a meadow, or a brook, or view a stream from a mountain cliff. Just a silent moment sometimes to take it in. I stood on top of a 5,000 ft Mountain one time with my Father. I remember that I was 16...We didn't see any deer that day, but it was just Dad and I standing there looking across that mountain range. Yea, we know its Gods Country. A lot of non hunters don't understand this, but I would love to stand in those spots where you took those pictures.
