Re: photos of the members locale/ hunting area

This is one that made a mistake and came out on the ridge by the rock outcropping in picture #2 above


This is a cow elk just to the left of the small tree in the left side of picture #2 above. This is with about 3x or 4x zoom on the camera


This is a small bull elk going through the small tan opening in picture #4 above and with about 10x zoom on the camera


Ranges on far ridge run from 475 yards to about 975 yards


A couple of elk at about 235 yards early last summer in a high meadow where we sometimes hunt


A herd of elk last summer at about 375 yards - almost no zoom on camera for this shot



About 25% of a herd of elk passing above me last summer at about 280 yards

Re: photos of the members locale/ hunting area

I wasn't going to post this since it's a scan of a 35mm and not a better digital photo, but anyway, this is a bull that came out in the bare patch in the left of picture #3 above the year before I got the 6 point. Both in the same canyon from the same general area in 2 years.

Re: photos of the members locale/ hunting area

Len: Any place you can get to the outdoors and do some looking and or, preferably, some shooting is God's country. It's just that some of God's country is better looking, especially when it has some critters in it.

Allright guys, here are some of my shots. Let's see some of some other areas and also some critters if possible.

Just looking at all of the pictures when I was posting these has got me in the mood to get out and about. The critters are there year round so I think I might just go see what they are up to.

One thing I thought about, because of a question by somebody else, is spotting, shooting and tracking animals in big, open, far reaching country. Almost all of the areas where we hunt have been marked at all major transitions, openings, outcroppings, road crossings, etc. with waypoints in our gps units. We also have gps units with topo capability and have top maps with waypoints marked that we use in conjunction with our gps units. Any time an animal is shot we have waypoints all over the area the animal is in so it's an easy matter to spot the location where the animal went down, mark a new approximate waypoint where the animal went down on the gps and then go to the area where the animal is with certainty that we will be right on. Even in the views above where we might want to get to some exact spot almost 2000 yards away, because everything is mapped out, we can easily go way out of the way to get to the exact spot by using gps, coordinates and maps. Might seem like a lot of work but during all on the summer scouting we are constantly marking and mapping new areas for future usage.

Re: photos of the members locale/ hunting area

Those are some great pictures of elk.

Here are a few pics of places that I hunt.

This is last fall when I was scouting north of Boise



This one is on Coeur d'Alene Lake in North Idaho a few years ago while scouting for ducks. Crappy quality picture - it was taken with a disposable camera.



Duck hunting on the Snake River this January



We were out coyote hunting and stopped to glass the hillside. She watched us for a good 10 minutes before walking off.



I need to carry my camera more often during hunting season - there were many cool shots that I could have taken if I had thought to bring the camera.

Re: photos of the members locale/ hunting area

Great pics gonehuntingagain. Thanks for posting them. It's always great to see new country, and again, with critters in the shots. I've been by Boise on the freeway but the country down there isn't as nice as that in your pics.

That's funny - I was thinking the same thing about the Yakima area! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

It is amazing how fast the country changes, especially with a wet spring, the desert was <font color="green"> GREEN </font> for most of the summer. Just go north of Boise - just over the hill it turns to forest instead of desert.
