SSSSSSSSSHHHHHH! Its a super secret place...............
I wish you luck on drawing your tag soon. If I had the patience to hunt somewhere else for the next 20 years Id put in for it too.

I used to live in Pinedale as well. Are you familiar with Black Butte, out HWY 52 toward the upper Green? I built the house that is 2/3 of the way up the butte 10 years or so ago. We moved back to Arkansas a few years ago for family reasons. I really miss Pinedale and hiking and hunting in the Wind Rivers. Maybe I will make it back out for a visit later this summer. Do you ever hunt with Mark Kroeger or Chopper?

Thanks again for the article, it got me fired up even more for elk season!!!

Rick
Hey Rick,

Sorry it took so long to respond-just geared up with work after very long lay off. So I haven't had much spare time lately.

Yeah I hunt with Chopper, we did an outrageous pheasant hunt a while back. His daughter and mine are like sisters and his Wife and mine are crazy good buddies. Mark does the archery club here which I would join and do the 3-D if time allowed. I don't know Black Butte personally but I do get that way from time to time, I hit Tim Singwald's big summer shindig every time he throws that down. Yeah it's a great place to live. Thanks for reading my article.

Doug

Glad you liked the article, it was my first attempt at writing something to be published-it's is a long way from what my Geology department head said after reading my term paper 35 years ago, and I quote: "How in the hell did you get this far"

Hey just to keep that fire lit, just get out in the woods this summer and spend some time with the elk. And during second season you might be surprised-check out the some of the overlooked patches.

This forumn of Len's has really helped me go from just chuckin lead for giggles and meat to chuckin really expensive lead for giggles and meat. And loving every minute of it. Got my new scope on my rechambered recrowned barrel and whole lot new gadgets on the reloading table. And best of all my new benchrest 1000 yd rifle is coming soon.

Thanks

Doug

Doug,

Thanks for responding. Next time you run into Mark or Chopper tell them Rick Marsh said HI. I will be in Pinedale for 2 or 3 days toward the end of the month and will check in with them both. Maybe if schedules match up one of them can get us together and make introductions.

I miss fishing the Green and New Fork and hope to spend a day or two on the water with my fly rod while I am there, and maybe shoot a few p-dogs too!

Keep up the articles, I will watch out for more from you.

Rick
