WELL... I got to do some really great hiking with dad and Clive. The weather here in Colorado has been really nice which is a bummer if you are trying to bow hunt elk. Especially, when you have guys who traveled 1200 miles to do it with you. A nice 12" snow storm would have been helpful!
Dad, Clive and I covered a lot of ground north of Silverthorne, but did not hear any elk calls and the only animals we saw were on private property and completely uninterested in coming over to see us. I had a great time though and I'm pretty sure dad and Clive enjoyed the trip. After all, getting an elk is a small portion of why we try. Mostly, it's about spending time with two of the best guys I know, in some of the most beautiful country I know. Maybe next time we'll have better luck, but if not the chase is always fun.
Maybe next year Lillian will go scouting with daddy and show me how it's done.
......I think the camo suits her!
