Well Murphy strikes again. I was going to set up camp today, but my pickup, which hasn't given me a lick of trouble in 6 yearss needed some urgent repairs. Get it back from the dealer after $600 worth of sundry repairs. Hopefully camp spot still vacant. One of our party scouted out the area Sunday and saw plenty elk of all sizes, shapes, sexual orientation, antlers and non antlers. Area has been lacking in critters for last couple of years, never can tell. Stuff all packed and ready to go, guns sighted in, food packed, menus established, need firewood, but will take care of that. Oh, and brother-in-law a no show...hopefully. Will have to watch election returns tonight and get wife p!$$ed off at me. Hey, what the heck I'm looking forward to getting out of here at daylight!
