Ryan's hunt is finally here. He got drawn for a bull elk in section 22. He left Thanksgiving night and camped out there for a week. Ryan and 3 of his friends Scott Sorenson, JD Baker, and Pat Olofson got drawn together. Ryan meet Scott up there and they hung out for 3 days until Pat and his dad came up for a day. JD was working and couldn't make it.
and hiked, about 13 miles a day. He said he saw a bunch of cows (female elks) but no bull elks!
One the last day Scott went home and my dad joined him up there.
*he is the cutest hunter I have ever seen*
They were hiking in a canyon and it started to snow so hard that Ryan couldn't see the other side of the canyon.
Within a few hours there was about 3 inches on the ground.
Pictures from my dad. Ryan hiking down the canyon.
No that's not a serial killer, that is my dad trying to keep his face warm in the snow.
Sad to say Ryan didn't get his elk but he said the snow on the last day made it worth it. He had fun and wants to try again next year.
