James Crumley, my neighbor, just got back from an elk hunt near Cuba, New Mexico with his son and brother and we talked at length about it. He said they were covered up with elk, but kept passing up shots with their bows, until it was too late to get one. They didn’t take cameras on their hunts so nothing but mind pictures of all the elk they saw, but they did take a pic of James and his son loading up of loading up a mule.
Randy Pfaff in Colorado sent me this pic of a bear in his tree stand. Randy said he let the bear have it and walked, hurriedly away.
