Today's wander took me by three different elk kill (or dump) sites. Bones really take a beating from the elements up here... so bleached out and cracked on the side facing the sky. #elk#wapiti#jawbone#mandible#animalremains
It is so hard to explain how special it is to experience sharing the forest with these amazing creatures...we glass them, track them and talk to them. They still somehow manage to disappear in the forest within seconds...making no noise at all. I have to say...we hike our rear off in September to try to find them, but they are so much fitter and so smart. Wildlife is amazing and it is fun to learn their behavior and patterns (or with elk-lack of patterns😉)
The best moments are when the stars align and you can take in all of earths beauty. Grateful to have the friends to allow for such an amazing experience and to harvest such a beautiful animal! Thanks to Eric and Melissa for such an amazing trip. Couldn't of done it without the love of my life @carrie14campbell by my side! #lifegoals#huntingtrip#blessed#wapiti
The story and the pics from my first elk this year. I shot him back a bit but I knew it was a kill shot at 830 in the morning. I let him go and waited an hour to start tracking him. I lost the blood trail and walked 6 miles in 7 hours back and forth and to every brush patch looking for him. It was over 100 degrees that day. I had been out of water for three hours before I quit looking to make the two mile hike back to my Ranger. I knew he was dead, I knew he was lost. I spent the next two days searching for him. I finally smelled him on my way out. Knowing the stretch he was in, it still took an hour of searching and smelling to find him in the thick brush. I was heart broken that I had lost him. But I notched my first tag because I had killed a bull and he deserved it. Did I have to? Did I have to tell anyone? It came down to ethics. I killed a bull, I lost a bull. It felt right to cut those notches. #ethics#hunting#idaho#archeryseason#elk#wapiti#archery#brownleezone#heartbroken#deserving#dowhatsright
Just going through some old footage and came across this. Walked onto this grizz sow with triplets with only camcorder in hand. The wind swung and the grizz winded us. The last cub to go stumbled and mum came charging in. Wish I had kept the camera on her a bit longer but I stood my ground yelled at her and she took to the hills as soon as the cubs where safely on their way. I did a bear aware course some time earlier while between jobs tree planting which gave me a good insight into their behaviour. This is fact although I could turn it into a great fictional piece! @fitzgerald251729 #respect#grizzlybear#deer#dyi#grizzly#bear
So proud of @j.r.grabinger who is currently carrying out his archery elk from the bottom of this meadow, to the top where the video is taken, down the other side to camp and along the side of the mountain down to the truck. He is out there by himself right now, it will take a lot of hours and miles, sweat, very sore muscles and many trips. But you forever remember those moments. Archery elk season is done for us.
Mel's first bull! What a hunt they had in northern Washington the last couple days, and Mel was able to notch his tag on his first elk ever. Mel was an avid outdoorsman when he had a stroke several years ago. He wasn't able to hunt on his own after that, but Rob offered to to take him out when they met. Thanks to help from Rob, Mel is once again able to hunt. This heavy-horned 4x5 walked out into their stand, Mel gave the green light, and Rob put one through the heart at 385 yards. What a hunt!
