Elk Hunt

Four days in the mountains and didn't see one
elk. Lots of signs.
So I didn't get a chance to use my 7x57 Ruger
No. 1 loaded with one round of Hornaday's 162
grain A-Max with 42.5 grains of IMR 4064.
We are already making plans for next year's
hunt. Maybe set up a blind a couple weeks
before the season. It sure is nice having
a waterproof blind on a rainy day.

Thats too bad John. Nevertheless, it is always good to get away into the hills eh. A blind (and a thermos of hot coffee) sounds great.

Even without seeing one elk it sure beats working in an office.
