Thank you very much gentleman.

That little bull taking the nap had a bud with him about 5 yards away. Those 2 showed some great little tidbits of personality you don't generally see.

First, thanks for all the nice comments. Its appreciated.

As to camera equipment, I'm using a Nikon D40 DSLR with a 18-55mm lens and a 55-200mm lens. Wife and I are saving our pennies to buy a really good long distance lens.

As far as my ammo in the .270 I have been using nothing but 150 gr. Nosler Partitions. No complaints and have yet to find one in any of the elk I've shot with them.

Very cool slayer. You must be getting pretty close for some of those pics, with a 200mm lens max. You're setting up a tripod? Are all of these from the same area of CO?

We are close. All of the elk pics were taken over the last couple years in Rocky Mountain National Park. Its a photographers dream and I am not aware of anywhere else in this state a guy could get that close. The rams were also in RMNP.

The moose and the scenery shot were taken where I elk hunt. They are sure taking over the valleys up there and seem to be everywhere. I never did get a shot of one Shiras Bull that had to have been well inside the record books. I wished I would have packed my camera on those days.

Looks like your taxi did a nice job on that bull.

He does phenominal work. He is one of 6 taxi's here in CO that does work for Cabelas on their conservation mountains. The price tag and lead time reflected that. $1050 and 14 months.

It is worth it to pay a bit more and wait a little longer for that trophy of a lifetime. We are going on 15 months for my wifes buck and still havent herd when it will be done.

For what its worth guys, I've been having a hard time as well. Get the same messages when trying to go to different pages. Sorry about the lack of responses.

Thanks for the comments guys.


I agree on the fact its worth it. Can you point me to a thread that contains your wife's buck? Sounds like its a real good one!
