    Dave, seems like a great trip and thank you very much for both the story behind it and also the magnificent pictorials. Also, thanks for remembering Justin's cravings for anything osage while on your hunting trip :D

    ^^ Ditto! Makes me miss hunting. Used to hunt public land hard and heavy...but got out of it after being "ruined" one season on private land. Haven't had a good opportunity in recent years.

    Nice Dave!! It’s so strange to see what’s looking be fall pics in winter. Oranges or Apples I guess still on the tree!!

    No snow or anything. Maybe after last year that’s a nice change. And tons of deer. Leave a gut pile for the starving yotes’?!

    Great to hang out with your Dad for sure. Hope I’ll be able to be out there at that age too!

    Thank you guys. I hope all that are still chasing get to fill their tags. I like reading all the stories and seeing all the pictures that get posted here, whether it's squirrels or moose lol.

    Thanks Tony, I appreciate that bud.

    There was some cured hedge left in camp that I decided to cut into firewood. Bad idea. That stuff is so hard there were sparks flying off the chain lol.

    Sure did. They were more like fat and sassy 'yotes though, looked like they were living the high life :D

    The closest towns to that area are Whitebird and Riggins. I keep looking for a chunk I can afford to no avail, but if a guy could swing it, there are some places. Probably most folks here would like the area. Lots of rafting, steelhead and salmon fishing and of course hunting opportunities. If I could find a way to pay the bills from there I'd never leave :D Cheers bud.

    Fun fact, I have jumped off the Timezone Bridge in Riggins - I climbed the structure, Tarzan style, to the very top and bailed off. What is that - about 75-80 feet, you figure?

    The local sheriff saw me do it. He stopped his car and from the road deck yelled down at me that I should keep on floating because if I swam to shore he was going to arrest me. I floated on for awhile and my buddies picked me up in the raft around the bend. I was stone sober at the time.

    I'll throw these out there just for fun. Spent a few years in wine country where these buggers weren't hunted. But I'll tell ya, I learned more about deer behavior watching them on the property than in ALL my years hunting them. Sure miss it...

    Oklahoma black bear I bagged a few days ago with my bow. Weighed in at about 300lbs. Although I didn’t get it in a picture, I used my EDC D2 to skin it and it performed amazingly well.

    Good bump David and nice score!

    I won’t get out with my bow until January, but we did pretty good on the Bluefin several months back. I was lucky enough to get three good ones on the deck.
