Scouting Trip New Hunting Area

Recall my LTB sonn-in-law? Well he's hunting for a new area to hunt elk. Kind of like hunting to go hinting.

After making a wrong turn, again, and getting low on gas, we pulled into Challis and figured breakfast was would be nice. My biscuits and gravy were pretty bland but with the 2 eggs and a sausage patty that almost covered the plate, was quite filling.

Gas was nearly $3.30

AND it snowed almost continuously but very lightly.

Passable snow @ 8500. Scary at 9k!

The game count is a follows:

16 elk - on the move headed to a better place.
Too many deer to count. Almost every hay field had several. Plus several on the hill.
~20 Turkey. Tried for a road kill but it was too quick.
1 Great Blue Heron - bet he wished he were still down south!
1 cock spruce grouse - think he was looking for a/the Mrs. Gave son-in-law a second look.
1 Fox
Several beat up steel head - in the hatchery.

A couple of pics.

Too flat, and not enough snow. Probably not all that fun telling your N.T.B. son-in-law to go get your elk on such easy ground. Find a place that'll challenge him a bit. Youll probably get alot more satisfaction out of it that way. Maybe try shootin one from the other side of the river so you can watch him swim before he has to go up the hill to fetch your elk. Then you and your little huntin buddy (that didnt make the pic's this time) can build a fire and roast marshmellows and wach daddy while you coach him on the route daddy shouldve took to fetch your elk.
Great pics Roy. Nice spot.
Oh and if you wanna roadkill turkeys drive thru Cambridge from Brownlee, and before you get to the ranch youll have your limmit.
