I will try to write up a story later about our hunt for elk that ended up being a deer hunt. None the less we came home with a truck full of meat. It's been really warm here and the elk have disappeared. Though i wanted to share some photos with you all of the deer we ended up taking. Now on to trying to fill another speed goat tag and then 2 more weeks of elk hunting.

Oscar she got her deer on video. She is working on editing it all. I believe the plan this year is to put a little video together from all our hunts. Got some sweet video of s big bill shiras moose as well.
