    First one of the season. Of course I walked right by it and the wife snagged it behind my back.

    Great find, good to know that hunters still have gatherers for partners.

    The elk have started leaving the feeding stations. A view from the kitchen window this morning. I counted over 100 head.

    Feeding on the S slopes.Looking forward to archery elk season in 2011...

    Short hike today. Found one more

    Also stumbled into an area with the remains of 4 elk and piles of cat scat and hair. I think an area of where a big cat hangs out. I cut his track a few times this past Winter xc skiing. Never able to catch him.

    Nice, Tom. Very nice!

    BTW, I have 2 of those red dogs..... I've had Vizslas for many, many years. We need to hook up and hunt them together this fall. We talked about it a few times but just could no put it together. Mostly due to fishing priorities....

    I know a knife maker that may buy some from you for handles if you are looking to sell.
