I have one buddy that would meet me in CO., but he would have to drive from northern Montana and I would from eastern South Dakota. That would be fairly expensive just in fuel.

We wouldn't have horses and neither one of us can pack an elk out. It is a couple miles from the last camping area(end of road) to the nearest decent elk and about 3 drainages. I'd do it with 2 people and 3 horses in one truck but not 2 people and no horses and 2 trucks.

Oh well, I'll draw a SD Elk tag one of these years pretty soon.

I usually do all the HVAC in the house myself. Just replaced the A/C condenser motor a month ago. Replace the furnace a few years ago and re-routed a bunch of the air. Luckily we have city sewer so no problems there.
Hay I got all that stuff

I feel for you buddy :-)
Sorry kcebcj. No elk where I went yesterday! Was a day of wrong decisions on my part. Google on Timber Creek Pass to see where I was. Also see new post on this forum.

Sorry about cher semer. I live in Tex Creek Unit 69. Will hunt the heck out of it this season as I didn't draw on a more preferred unit. Which may have been a good thing as I hunted with my son in law, archery, no elk only wolves. It was unit 51.

If ya wanna hunt tex creek in the future I'll go the Bed and Breakfast thing if you'd like and if I'm still alive.

Anything to help a fellow hunter.

Re: I am so depressed

thanks for all your sympathies....

As it turns out my son can't go either, after last year we finally got all the gear to have a really fine camp. The only thing we would want and can't do is horses or mules. Otherwise we wanted for nothing.

He is just finishing up school and just got a job after his 2 tours in the sandbox with the marines. So he has not accrued enough vacation.

I figured this would have been a decent year for the elk in SE idaho, I was worried about the fires in the area. I don't think 69 got hit to bad?

Hope the weather is good for all of you,

I will do some hunting in the NW part of Wisco, but the dang wolves and black bears have put a serious wooping on the herd numbers here.

I might end up sitting in camp drinking beer. Not a total waste of time ......LOL

No fires in Units 66 or 69 - Tex Creek

Other than being super dry with fall settling in 3 weeks early things are normal. The elk above the diversion dam on the blackfoot river were rutting way early. Been going for the last 3 weeks.

Cold front passing through Wed. Drastic temp drop. Will scout my three hides Thur, Fri and Sat. Wolverine, Dan Creek and Lava Creek.

Come on out when you can.
