Well guys and gals, this yr was one of the best yrs we have had but one of the saddest also.. This last Feb. I lost my best friend and hunting buddy to a car wreck. So it was kinda tough to set up camp but I know we had to do it. And I am glad We did. here are some pics from the season.
This is just outside of our camp,, big ol Pine trees...
The gang,,,, I am on the left, My buddy's fiance, and our other hunting buddy on the right,,, Fiance had a pretty rough time with out Colin here this yr.
Success, I was able to call this spike in with a few cow calls and Tim shot him at 40yrs, didn't go 10 yrds and tipped over,
Tims boy and his girlfriend showed up to help.
Had to have a cold one after the long day.
You didn't think I would post anything about smoking did you???
How about smoked Potato Salad - Smoked the eggs for about 3hrs they could have gone a little longer
And smoke some spuds,
Elk back strap, Smoked potato salad and small taters,,, never enough spuds
And for those who have never had a campfire breakfast the next day
this was the best.
Pops sausage patties came in handy.
As you can see we eat good at camp
Tried to find the one ripping up all the trees LOL,,, got him to bugle to us last day for 1hr and 45 min but would not come in, sure he had a bunch of cows with him and he did not want to play with us.
Great times, and great friends,,, looking forward to Muzzle loader season and next yr Archery season
Good luck to all the hunters headed out this fall.
My smoker is going to be full this yr LOL
