MORNING HUNT: Aspen Ridge Road Mtn
Tuesday, August 28
Skunked. I guess you can't run into elk every day. Right? This morning we hunted the left side of Aspen Ridge Road. We dropped down and made a big loop, circling around to the east of Big Bull Meadow. We didn't see ANYTHING. I think it was Allen's fault... he forgot his release that day which automatically made him the caller by default.
EVENING HUNT: Beaver Ponds
Allen and Todd had to head down the mountain after the morning hunt to return to work for a few days. So our "hunting pack" shrunk down to just Rudy, Troy and myself. A small thunderstorm rolled through the Rockies this afternoon. The incredible lightning display in the sky above had us second guessing the brilliance of traversing through the woods holding metal bows and a large lightening rod - aka Rudy's camera monopod. After sitting it out a bit and taking some amazing pictures from the safety of the truck, we ended up venturing down the trail.
Apparently all the animals were scared of lighting too, because we didn't see any living creature in the woods that night. Okay... maybe a squirrel made an appearance. We sat by a wallow at the end of the trail until the evening light began to fade. Nothing. All was quiet.
So... back to camp for a nightcap and dreams that the action would pick up tomorrow!
