  1. Had a semi-productive weekend despite being cold and rainy most of the time. Had a good talk with the neighbor. Gave me lots of tips for the area and shot the breeze for a while. Even though I have repeatedly told him he doesn't need to, he is going to move his stand. Also, found out the 2 parcels south of me have also recently sold, so there may be a bunch of newbies in the area. A border patrol officer stopped by and chatted with us for a while. He seemed like great guy and resource for the area. He has actually hunted the land I bought in the past and his son took

  2. At this point we had one full day and one morning left to hunt. No more elk moved into the drainage behind camp. By some miracle a cow and spike did come back to the hillside we had elk on that first evening, but neither Dad or I could get in position quick enough before they went back over the fence. All added up we had 2 very good opportunities, and one decent, which by our standards and past experience in general OTC type units was a pretty decent week of elk hunting even though no elk were killed. We learned a lot about the unit and a potential better way to access the lan

  3. It rained that night, and the next morning we went up high to glass back where we left the elk. They seem to have never left the cut we saw them bed in. Some interesting low clouds. It rained all afternoon, but the forecast said it would clear a couple hours before sunset. We observed snow on the high peaks in the distance. Once the rain stopped and the skies looked clear we went back to see if we could finally shoot an elk. We worked the wind back up to where we had last sat so we see the elk and still move down to i

  4. Unfortunately the weather turned bad on us and it rained over night, I forget if it was day four or five. In any case a cloud system rolled in and low cloud ceiling filled the drainage behind camp. We went up the front side of the area hoping elk would be out there to get out of the clouds. It was extremely windy now as well. I went high back where I saw the spike days earlier and was glassing back up the drainage when I saw a bull and three cows in the wide open up high! I considered running down the cut between us to try to intercept in the creek bottom belo

  5. I told my dad that he should not follow me up that hill, it might kill him. He did not take me seriously... He followed anyway. We left camp very early as it was a long walk up the drainage, and I wanted to be on top before the elk, but I still needed daylight to get up the dangerous last 700ft. Sunrise behind me on the way up: I made it to the top and set up in the rock outcropping. Time passed, Dad was nowhere to be seen behind me. I saw a group of elk below me in the next drainage, a nice bull and what might have been the cows/calves I was seeing on the

  6. Less than 2 weeks ago, the place I had been hunting 25 years had fallen apart and I had no clue where my boys and I were going to hunt. Well as of this weekend I am now the owner of 40 acres up near Warroad. The land needs some work, hasn't been used in 15+ years but it was the right price. Heading up this weekend to build a temporary bridge over a drainage ditch and start getting some trails cut. It's thick. I walked it to check it out and it needs lots of brush thinning. Most of the trees are aspen, birch and a few pines scattered around. 2500+ of state forest land across the road too.

  7. This year I got the bright idea of buying some leftover Elk B tags in a unit in SW Montana that we had never been to before. Originally my dad and I were planning on going back out to Idaho where we hunted two years ago now that we had some experience there. MT Elk B tags are less than half the cost of an any elk tag in Idaho, and 1/3 the cost of a MT general elk tag. In addition we could buy up two two Whitetail B tags each for a reasonable fee, and it looked like there were plenty in the unit to go around. It did not take much convincing for my dad. Some quick research on th

    Late Season Lobster

    I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.

    My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running. There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube.

  10. Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, t

  11. A 9 year old may be a good enough shot to harvest a deer, but can he really comprehend what it means to take the life of an animal? I'm all for taking kids hunting, but make sure they're mature enough to understand what it really means.

  13. I think it was the third morning when I walked back up the big drainage behind camp to get a good look on the ground for elk sign. On the way I saw more elk way up on the spine of the drainage. Lots more elk sign in the back cuts. It was clear this area held a lot of elk during the summer, but they got busted out by hunters during the early part of the season. I decided I was going to get a closer look at the potential trail to the top of the drainage spine. I am a rock climber, so heights don't bother me so much. I was more concerned about footing and if my dad could get up

  14. Dad had seen a black bear below him that first morning, and when I walked down the next day with him I was able to snap some photos in the early light with my bigger camera. They are grainy, but it looked like a nice bear to me. We did not have a tag. Herd of elk way out on private range land: Interesting spider:

  15. Unfortunately this is where the trip gets boring. That herd we accidentally set up on the very first evening moved across the fence and taunted us from the other side all week. We knew it was a good spot, but wind directions did not cooperate, and no more elk would cross the fence there no matter how much we wanted them to or how good the sign was on that hillside. The second morning I went higher above to glass back up the main drainage. Far up on the rim of the drianage I saw a few elk walk across the spine. I knew from the map there was one chute that could access the nati

  16. As luck, or bad luck, would have it the first evening was one of our luckiest. We hiked up the main logging road that took us to the front of the drainage overlooking some prime grazing areas. We hiked back to where we hit a private ranch fence that had timber on the other side, hoping elk would come out to feed and we could observe. We no sooner arrived at our observation point and a raghorn bull across the valley saw us coming and blew out ahead of us... We found a place to sit by a grove of shorter quaking aspens (I think). We waited and waited, and I scouted behind the

  20. Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be

    I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.

    I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
