Elk Hunt 2008

One of My favorite things to do is go Elk hunting. Unfortunately the wolves have taken more Elk around this area than any hunter. This year we hunted in a new area. To get to the are that we had decided to set up our camp was pretty rough. There was about 2 feet of snow on the ground. My truck had a heavy trailer full of out gear and my brother had a four place ATV trailer behind him, it was full. Chevy Power!!! There as only one truck that had gone in before us and they stopped and turned around where we set up camp. We hunted the area at our camp and about 5 miles beyond. Because it was so nasty to get into we were the only ones there for the next 3 days. That was great!! Unfortunately all we found were Deer. Four of us had Deer tags and we filled 2 of them.






Some Pics of our camp.





The last 3 years we have had a 17 X 13 tent, this year my friend bought a second tent a 12 X 14 when we put them together and added 2 wood stoves and a shower house out back we lived like Kings.




I am on the left, then Clint, Scott, and Bill. This was taken about 15 miles away from camp. Where there was allot less snow.

The .17 hmr

I love my 17 hmr. I have the Remington 597 in a bull barreled.
This link will take you to the Remington website.

This is a group I shot at 50 yards


It is allot of fun to shoot full pop cans with the 17 hmr.

This video is not the best but you get the idea.

The ammo for this gun is expensive compared to a 22LR, but it is worth it.

It is also fun to shoot full shaving cream cans, the result is like snow falling.

Does anyone out their like thier 17 hmr?
