Ha! 287 is brutal! I think a lot of it is that if you leave in the morning from Ms, then 287 often becomes an all night travel event. The effects of lack of sleep, predawn travel, and the sheer monotony of this stretch works against you. I really enjoyed that trip with you Warren...hopefully we can do it again in the not too distant future.W said:I've made that 287 haul several times. The ride home is always easier with meat in the cooler. I've had the good fortune of sharing an elk camp with Mark. A fine sportsman for sure.
I want to make a request for the story of the elk in your profile picture!Stringwacker said:Just in case anyone is interested, I have another story on a 1990 Canadian bear hunt almost done. I really had it mostly completed two weeks ago; but life intervened. I've been traveling on business a great deal lately. Maybe I can post it sometime this weekend
I posted a new story on the bear hunt. In many cases, I'm selecting the stories based on whether it was an interesting hunt and if I have enough pictures to support it. I'll do the elk story next which was in 2005, though I'm a bit short on pictures due to some unique circumstances that will become evident in the story.nate12285 said:I want to make a request for the story of the elk in your profile picture!
