Just talked to the guide that I have to meet for the two meetings. He is super nice and is going to bring a few maps to show us some stuff. His first area is the exact area we were already headed to but he said every few years they just aren't there. He also has a back up area that he said is a lot steeper and higher that seems to always hold bulls.

Lol people like prepping for trips just as much as they like going on the trip.

I think plans have already changed. I was doh t to use my chase points to book a hotel in El Paso. Well apparently you can't do that the day of. So I decided to go out through Roswell and stop at the inn of the mountain gods casino and hotel. It looks awesome and I can play a few hours of poker tonight when I get there. Hunts can't be all work and no fun

Alright guys I just pulled into Ruidoso. I left my shop west of Weatherford and made it in 6.5 hours I called ahead and the casino was wanting 190$ for a room so I pulled in to the Laquita. I dropped all my stuff off and made the 10 min drive to play a little poker. They have a really cool little bar/restaurant so I'm grabbing some wings and a beer before playing cards. I am drinking a Marble double white that is awesome. I'll head back to the room at 12 or so to get some sleep.

I talked to the guide that I have to meet tomorrow and we are meeting st 11am. He actually is going to give me some really good info and from the way he talks I should have a really good hunt

Made a nice little $110 profit on the night. There is only $105 in the pic because I missed a $5 chip in my pocket ha

Headed back to get some rest now

Heck yeah!! I never have played poker. Always afraid I'd embarrass myself with folks who know how to play there. I've only played with friends lol. Maybe I'll suck it up one day

Alright guys I probably won't have service for the rest of the trip. My buddy I'm meeting to hunt with woke up to a dead battery so he had to get a new one installed this morning. So grabbing a little breakfast then off to meet the guide and get started

Got a little update from JT. Sounds like they made it and are settled in. They should be hitting it right. Hopefully I hear some more over the next few days!

JT text me last night...

He's going into a new area and spike camping today. Gunna chase bugles in morning and sit at a water hole rest of the day. He didn't go into much more detail

Last I heard they had some long hikes to where the elk were but they had gone silent there. His hunting partner was having a hard time getting back to that area so they were going to hunt some closer country for a day or two. If no luck I believe JT was going to spike out alone and head in about 5-6 miles further. I believe that is the post above. Hopefully I'll get an update tonight or tomorrow.
