Hey, nothing to it. You're young. I, on the other hand had to take a nap and rub Ben-Gay on my legs just from looking at the pictures.

Great job !

nice job guys! i was just over your way a couple weeks ago on a bear hunt. i'm surprised you can get into some of those places over there on foot. we ran into a lot of snow up on the ridge tops. luckily we had a quad with snow tracks

again congrats on a nice bear!

Thanks Chris,

Hey, that was a cool thing you did, donating your Sled Springs tag for a youngster to use on the mentor program. First class in my book.

Thanks. I'd do it again in a second! That was one of the best hunts I have ever been on. Absolutely loved it over there.

O.A.

Did you post any of those photos that I saw at Wayne's shop. That one of that little guy packing that bear out of that hole was priceless. It looked like he was exhausted, sleep walking up that hill.

The mule string ??? Dang it, I knew we forgot something. :)

No, Jordan and I usually go on foot. Because we can be more mobile. And we leave the horses at home. By the time we were to drive back and trailer horses, and get them to the trialhead, it would take us a day or so. So just like last year, we decided to man up, and backpack the bear out.

If you are a brawler, you fight UFC,

If you are a rodeo cowboy, you win Cheyenne.

If you are a runner you finish the Western States 100.

If you are a hunter you bowhunt Hells Canyon and pack out your kill on foot.


"What are four signs you are a tough SOB Alex...."


Gentlemen, you both have my respect. That NE Oregon Country breeds some tough folks and sends the weak ones packin'. Keep up the good work.
