Again, evening, so we do some quick pics and get him taken apart to cool the meat as quickly as possible. Get back to camp and eat some dinner, then turn in. End of day two.
Next morning was a sleep in morning for her, while I get up and de-bone the meat, and get it into the cooler on ice. Then cape out her antelope and get it salted down for the taxidermist. We spent the rest of the time there calling in coyotes, and had a few come barreling in on us. Was a lot of fun
An update of the weather forecast, which called for high winds, 12 to 18 inches of snow, and temps in the 30’s, told us, it’s time to break camp and run for home. So we pack up and drive out, stopping in Bozeman the first night, then back to western Washington the following day. All in all, a great hunt. Much more challenging that I thought it would be, especially with the days of high winds we were dealing with. But in the end, a great trip, good memories and a great way to spend time together. Now she wants to do mountain lions next……but I have elk points building up for both of us…..we’ll see.
