    This was taken by game camera on the UU Bar Ranch about 15 miles SE of me. I have taken 3 elk off that ranch over the years.

    why couldn't you just say 1680 square miles of great wide open instead of bragging knowing the ranch managers of each of them places don't make you that special except maybe your a good guy to know, okay, okay, I'm jealous your living there okay?

    What are they feeding those critters? I bet this is like an oasis of wildlife from mice, turkeys and snakes all the way up to elk and bear! :grin:

    Don't know what they are feeding those critters but that 6 pointer on the left could almost rekindle my desire to traipse around after them again.
    Buzz, you do live in paradise.

    My times at Philmont are some of the best memories I have. My father went on one excursion with my brothers and I with a broken toe. He slammed it into a rock the day before heading out and he didn’t want to miss it. On the same trip he sat on an old log for lunch and got swarmed by fire ants. We laugh about it now but it was pretty bad at the time. LOL

    Besides knowing the ranch manager personal of each one of them ranches he rattled off @nmbuzz can tell you how many bags of cement is in every new building on Philmont. The man is a serious major league player & I'm somewhat humbled by his friendship and his patience.
