Spotting for elk = Finding Antelope

We had some elk hunters coming in from Maryland so I went out a day
early to spot for elk. About 10 am I had put some elk to bed and drew
the map so now it was time to rest for a few minutes before the hike
back to the car. I found these antelope at the far end of a ranchers hay
field so I checked them out with the spotting scope and saw that there
was a nice buck in the bunch. Time to get back to the car and drive
around behind them and try a stalk to get close enough for a couple of
photos. I was on top of the clay cliffs you see in the background of the
1st photo. A very nice mid morning stalk and then a couple of hours
under a tree made for a GREAT day.

Agree with Jerry, very beautiful.....Don't like the sound of "hunters" though

Hi Jerry, you are right I am pretty lucky to be able to live in this area.

Morning Bootneck3, thanks for taking the time to look and for the kind words.

Here in our valley hunting is the 2nd biggest economic driver. It allows a lot of people to have jobs. One example is I get paid to spot 6 days a week from Oct. 1, thru Dec. 31. I also get paid to make up a CD and 3 10x7 photos of the hunter with his or her elk.

There are a lot of good arguments in favor of and against hunting but the bottom line is everyone has to make up their own mind.

I am off my soapbox for now.

thanks again for commenting and for looking.
