Elk Hunting 2012

Jimmy and Trent on day one of our elk hunting trip near Zortman, Montana

I'm carrying the lunches to insure that I'm not left behind! Ha!

Time for a lunch break.  The sunshine was glorious that day.

This is the day the Jimmy, Trent and I hiked 8 miles.  We didn't see a single
elk, but after a lunch break we started calling "Hoo-ti-hoo!" and we did
finally scare up about 5 mule deer.  They were very curious about the
strange sounds, but they didn't like the looks of us and
they went dashing across the hills.

Hey look, I think I see something.  

Towards the end of our hike we could see our campsite.  See those two
little white dots down below?  Our camper is on the left side.  We had
such a great time!  Trent and Cassie were there for a few of the days.
We had success on the last day, so we have elk in the freezer and it
only snowed a little bit on the way home, so the drive wasn't too treacherous.
And after being away for 10 days, it was lovely to get home.


  1. Congratulations on your Elk. Glad you had a fun and safe trip!

  2. Looks like a blast! I so would love to go with you sometime! Glad it was a success!

  3. We had a ton of fun! Grace, you definitely need to come to try out your sharpshooting skills in Montana. We don't have caribou, but I bet you'd still have fun. :)
