It's really beautiful country, but I dont go there unprepared. I ussually keep enough gear in my vehicle that I could use it as a camp for a week or so if I had to. I dont want to be one of those people on the news that S&R Teams have to go find.
Here are some pics..
I did a little coyote hunting, but the fur market isn't too good this year so I probably wont shoot too many more this season.
I also saw the biggest herd of Elk that I have ever seen, at least 100 of them. Unfortunately they werent in camera range...maybe next time.
It snowed the second day I was there, while I was walking to my next stand I noticed a little hole in the snow. It didnt look like the normal varmint dens that cover this area so I investigated it. While poking around the snow caved in to reveal a hole in the roof of a lava tube. If I would of been walking a few feet to the side I would of fallen in to this thing. It would of been an 8 to 10 foot drop with no way to get out. It made me paranoid to walk for a while, that could of been a deadly mistake, but I am going back there this spring with a ladder and some help.
I'll make sure I bring the camera too....
Thanks for reading. This was my first post (of many hopefully), on my first blog.
