  5. Yesterday
  6. Sounds like a great place to live. I am also considering Colorado DIY elk hunting in the (more near) future. When you are a non-resident the price tag can really be a limiting factor even on a DIY hunt. A friend of mine met an older guy while hiking in the RMNP this past summer. The guy said he decided to give up Elk hunting due to father time and his health. He told my friend he would send him the coordinates of the area he has hunted for years and showed him pictures of the numerous bulls he has taken over the years. We are taking it into consideration. I always wonder how much is "talk" and how much is genuine. Ya, know... Best of luck to you Dave - I hope you find the bull you are looking for.
  7. Awesome pics Dave. The assortment of wildlife is very cool, not every day or every place you get to see that many different animals all sharing the same living room! Good luck in your adventures this fall.

    Dang! Everything looks great!
  9. Frank, the sooner the better as I've decided that serious run and gun elk hunting is more of a young man's game. On top of that, you never know what the future holds. You will love elk hunting, especially during the rut. Think about other states also as I think you may get a tag sooner. For some reason there seems to be almost no deer movement in the mountains here. I've seen a few doe and one spike over the past two weeks. I see moose and bear several times a week and the elk bugle in the early morning hours before first light. It has been quite chilly at night with temps in the 20s and daytime highs 40-50. You would think everything would be moving. Snow is forecast for this weekend so that might get things moving. The best hunting has yet to come.
  10. a couple more from the camera 50 yards from the house I took this picture from my front balcony and could have easily filled my bear tag. Not a color phase and not overly large, but does have a nice coat.
  11. A couple of them gave me more than a couple tries to get the gun to fire. Freakin' FRUSTRATING when my money gun acts up !!!!!!
  12. Last week
  13. Remington was out of the picture for quite some time, just now getting fired up under the new ownership. Then there were covid shutdowns last year. Couple that with hoarders and scalpers and then also an election year last year and this new "admin", and it has been the perfect storm for ammo and reloading component shortages. There are scalpers using bots to buy primers as they come available, then they are reselling them, mostly on gunbroker. Has made finding primers difficult and much more expensive. Add to it now that this illegitimate administration has banned importation of Russian ammunition, and things are again deteriorating. Remington fired back up a few months ago. Afraid however it is gonna continue to be a bumpy road for ammo for the unforeseeable future. That said, I saw more on the shelves at academy this morning than what I saw a month ago. Still slim pickings though.
  14. Okay then, why is there no ammo? Are the plants shut down? No components? No work force? I really haven't had time to research this topic. I would assume they would be operating around the clock. So why no ammo?
  15. And I'm sure the does just stood there watching you fiddle with the gun 😆 I don't own a flint lock but I have had something similar happen to me with my cap lock. I leaned it against a tree and the cap slid off. When the does stopped in front of me, click, draw hammer, click, draw hammer, click, look down, start swearing.
  16. had a couple more flocks come down or at least OFF lake Superior.. Early season was a BUST here...

    Looks great Al. Bet it was tough deciding which animals to display in the new home?
  18. Either way...fine by me. I'll share my deer tales with the forum anyway. 😉

    Thanks! Discovered some old items I didn't know my parents had. For example my father had an old double handle 5' logging saw in great shape. It's on a wall now in my screened in patio too. Also found a child's heritage book my grandmother (on my father's side) started shortly after my birth in 1954. I knew my ancestors on my fathers side but I only knew my mother's side 1 generation back and it ended with the last name of "Jones". Now I have the the information back to my my mother's great grandmother. Pretty cool.

    Thanks for the "Tour" and update Al! I LIKE!!!!
  21. No shooter bucks last year........... But I did pull the trigger. In 3 or 4 days of flintlock hunting I had 6 or 7 fat does DEAD TO RIGHTS..................if the gun (which ALWAYS goes boom) woulda gone off. Apparently, somehow, my charge powder (fffG) must have drawn damp. The pan would go. But not the charge. I was FLIPPIN' OUT !!!!!!!!!!!

    GREAT to have yo back, Al !!!!!!! I was starting to worry about ya !! LOVE the new house !!!! And the trophy rooms are spectacular. I know EXACTLY what you've been going through. We did a big addition nd massive renovation starting nearly 3 years ago. Lol !!! We're almost done............. We were moving our stuff..........my in-laws' stuff (they have passed) and their parents' stuff. It has been staggering and continues to be. But I've got a trophy room almost done, too. It's not as impressive as what you got goin' on there. But I like it. Welcome back, buddy !!!
  23. That's a shame Pat. That was a nice buck.
  24. If we get another member that wants to play, will just add another 2 person team with you. If not I will see if Catrina wants to or will add myself.
