    Had a great hunt! Shot a nice mature 6x6 and saw elk almost every day.

    Whoot Whoot! Decker pack saddles, diamond hitches, lots antlers, shaggy horses, snow, a dog, and a quiet rifle.

    What more could a fella ask for??

    Great pics. Worth a billion words. . .

    I gotta admit, my cousins are responsible for the diamond hitches! I will get it one of these years! I can hitch it around the panyard sacks, and keep from being stepped on in the process, but what they do with a cinch is a work of art!:)

    We had a great time, there was only two days of the entire trip where one of us wasn't pulling a trigger on something! You don't get many trips like that! It is a privelidge just to be up there and then to have an experience like that, un believable!!!

    Thank you gentlemen! We had a blast and managed to fill a few tags. Amazing experience. He was still rutting hard and bugling like a madman! I could literally feel it in my chest when he would chuckle at the end of a bugling sequence. It was like an echo chamber coming up the draw he was in. Awesome stuff, that is the shit a guy dreams about! :)
