  • Hunt pics, Utah and Nevada 2017 hunts

    I've been on a few great hunts this year. The older I get the more I just want to get out there regardless of harvesting game. As a kid growing up hunting and fishing, doing it now really brings me back to center. The pain, the cold, the long days and long miles all seem to fold into an experience I need to clear my head. anyway, here's a few shots.

    I'm still trying to export all my pics from photobkt so bear with me.

    Nevada first

    Nevada was a great experience. I saw the biggest deer in my 40+ years of hunting. Couldn't get to him but I'll never forget him. Did an incredible amount of hiking on this one as I really wanted to harvest a big one. I was not able to get that done so I took a meat buck on the last day. Of course, after passing several bigger deer...









    9000'













    Lots and lots of glassing and hiking. Steep country. Great experience. I worked all summer to get in shape and glad I did...it was still an azzkicker

    Utah...

    Ah Utah, the land of the cold, and the brave. It was usually around 7-9 degrees each morning. Saw some great Elk, had cow tags. Took number 2 son (order of appearance, not importance) as he is out of school for the month. Saw homesteads built 100+ years ago, traveled over 100mi on dirt through gorgeous country.

    Saw some decent Bulls along our way from Utah to Idaho to Nevada.

          Totally awesome and some delicious meat! Love the pics. Nothing like hunts like that to make forever memories with friends and family. My brother and I are going on a moose hunt in Newfoundland next Nov.

                You never forget the ones that got away. I can still see the biggest Mule deer I've ever seen and a giant bull elk I startled within 30 feet - never forget looking into his eyes... and that was 20+ years ago.

                Great pictures and thanks for sharing. Those wide open hunts are quite an experience and SO totally different then southern hunting where you are in a shooting house on a green field or ladder stand and shots are generally 100 yds or less.
