2008 Hunting season, warm weather makes for nice walking but difficult stalking

Elk herd on private land Above is a photo of an elk herd (actually only part of the herd) that hangs on private land during hunting season. They are so much fun to watch as they move from field to field just on the edge of timber and Forest Service land.

We are still hunting for my whitetail doe and/or buck and of course for the elusive elk. It is fun, but we would love for it snow so their behavior was a bit more predictable and we could see tracks. It is our privilege to hunt in these beautiful mountains and be able to experience the wonderful sights and sounds as the sun rises and the day begins.

Here is a slide show of a few of our hunting photos. We did an eastern Montana antelope hunt in October. Jack went back in November and bagged a 4x4 whitetail buck. He didn't get any photos on that trip. It was rainy and mucky.

If you click "View Album", then "View Slide Show" and slow the photos down to 5 or 6 seconds - it should show in full screen mode.

  1. Hey Merle & Jack. Loved your hunting photos! Glad your antelope quest was a success. The landscape out there (near Zortman?) just looks stunning.

    Got a phone call from "Crazy" Harry Richards this week as he was on his way hunting near Dillon. I told him I'd "met" you dudes online and he laughed and said something about an incident with some PA monitors 20 years ago.

    OK, I'm rooting for snow in MT too. It'll make the fishing better next summer!
