Thanks Dave, we certainly got beat up by the swirling wind. I agree, I thought we had the deal closed a couple times, but the Rocky Mountains can be a fickle place. I greatly enjoyed you in camp and we had a ton of fun. I also enjoyed sharing my elk hunting exprience with you and I believe you left camp a better elk hunter. I am looking foward to your return as that big herd bull that winded us still haunts my mind. You hunted hard and did a great job.
The weather was hot into the 80s and swirling winds throughout the day. It was rather hard hunting but Alan did everything including throwing in the kitchen sink to get me on some elk. We were in elk every day and evening but with the heat and cold basins, the swirling wind got the best of us each and everytime. Alan took more than his share of teaching me about the hunt. He was more than patient with me and answering the million questions that I had and explained them to me so that it made sense. It didn't take long and we were on the same page, he knew what I was thinking and I knew what he was thinking by the second day. That in itself was satisfying. He really knew the lay of land and where the elk would be. Also, where they should be coming from and what to look for. When we were in elk, even to the point we both thought it was a done deal the ill fate of wind would touch the back of your neck. This is a top notch outfitter that will do everything in his will to get you on elk and all you need to do is make that shot count. PICK A SPOT!
