This is the 3d year in a row I've scored in this late season hunt.

This little guy hung around for a while. Shortly after this he disappeared in the direct where we saw more elk. He'll be fine.

The rocks you see are every bit as bad on the road. We got my RZR within 300 yds. It took us 1.5 hours to go less than 2 miles. Good thing I have a good skid plate and heavy duty tires on it. Walking out there was miserable.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

Congratulations Rock! What rifle and load? Range?

Range 440, my longest shot ever. The range was kind of funny. My son-in-law was along for the ride...and hopefully to be a pack mule. He also has a real good 1500yd range finder. We'd spotted her from the road, nearly 600 yds. We waited until she wandered out of sight and started getting closer. We came up over a rock pile and she was in front of us. The range looked good so I got set and said:
how far?
340.
I can do that. BANG. That's almost my longest shot ever which was 350
I didn't say 340. I said 440. (deef old fart)
Oh well. She fell down.

My UTV is a little RZR 800 2 seater. With the elk, I was seriously overloaded with 2 of us and was bottoming out on the rocks. My SIL volunteered to walk while I took the meat to the truck and then come back for him. The rocks on the road were so bad that for the next 1.5 miles, he was literally walking right behind me. That's all the faster I could go without tearing the machine apart. It was 7 miles to the truck. Luckily, the really bad rocks were only for the 1st 2 miles. It had taken us 1.5 hours to drive that 2 miles on the way out.

Congrats. I sometimes miss the desert in Idaho.
I don't miss the snow.

Are those lava rocks? I hunted country like that in western NM when I lived there. Nasty stuff.

Most likely basalt. Nice freezer filler, RC.

What’s another hundred yards? LOL

Nice shooting right there!

12 miles from the river, on top of the canyon NW of Bliss. I'm no geologist but they say it's basalt out there, miles of it. The thin soil between the rocks is a nasty gumbo when it's wet.
