Ya ouch. Oh well it couldve been worse.... oh ya it was, my rifle and 1 buddies were top packed when the second mule wreck of the day happened. Yep he rolled over both rifles 3 times then got stuck on his back struggeling to get up. Man I was P/Oed. Did i mention that i didnt get the 08'presidential election results till I got back to the pickup a few days after being completely skunked. Yep, just wasnt my year I guess. Actually it was horrible! Lookin back we all made the most of our time there and all of us agreed that it was an experience we wouldnt soon forget. haha On a positive note, we did see some beautiful country
No, my beloved model 70 doesnt shoot as good as it did before i left on that trip. But I feel much better after whispering in that mules ear just exactly what that rifle was gonna do to him if I ever saw him again.
All in all Im kinda glad i went when i did. Now I have 2 kids and a wife that says "well i guess you can go for a week,.....if you bring home meat." NO PRESSURE right. haha She knows my family comes first untill hunting season then the1 thing daddy waits all year for is gonna take him on another adventure, and hopefully put meat on the table.
My only analegy is "everyone oughta give it a try, untill you get punched in the face and come back for more you never truly know if youve got what it takes.'' Well no elk this year on my over the counter tag,but we saw a few! Ya, i came back for more, i love to hunt.
