Unfortunately not me!

HDWRENCH (Steve) is headed out early tomorrow morning to San Juan Forest around Pagosa Springs. I will be updating pics for him throughout his trip. Plans to hunt until the 23rd unless he tags out before then.

Good luck Steve! Safe travels and look forward to the pics!

Some pics of his rig and a photo from last season.

Been here hunting since last Friday. Elk still aren’t talking but it could happen any day now. I’d do a live thread but it’s been too slow to keep it interesting. Best of luck!

Not a good start to the trip.

Small truck issue and now a semi hit a cone and bounced it over hitting Steve's truck and Jack on trailer.

Believe he has another buddy rolling in shortly.

He actually sent me an invitation last week and I had to pass. Sure wish I was there though.
