Packing up for a week of elk hunting here today. Couldn't come at a better time either. Whatever the resolution of the recent election (& all the COVID posturing), I'll be mostly incommunicado which suites me just fine. Was out shooting clays with some old friends yesterday and that had an analgesic effect as well (Out of the wreckage of my old club, a new one has risen. Not the same but not bad either). I'm sure multiple layers of reality will be waiting to slap me in the face upon my return but for the next week or ten, I'll be mostly living out of my 20-year old pickup, with an old (ancient) pair of Swarovski's perched on my nose. Cold and tired at the end of each day is surprisingly good for your state of mind IMHO.

Have a great trip Lloyd. I’m on break til the MN deer season has ended, pheasant hunting will commence after the 2 week southern season, then grouse after the 3 week deer season in, well, grouse country.
Drive safely.

Best,
Ted

Excellent way to get away from all the "bad news" we're hammered with daily, to clear the head! Good luck to you and have some fun!

I'm in the same boat as you, although it won't be elk I'll be chasing, rather mule deer for a week with my brother, leaving tomorrow morning. Then back home for Thanksgiving and then off to SD for another week to chase pheasants. He's got a camp trailer we'll be roughing it in on the mulie hunt.

I have a cow elk tag for a local unit, that lasts until the end of December, so that's what I'll be doing to finish out the season.

I sure do love retirement!

Lloyd, so glad you can get away awhile from all that this year has been. I was leaving Friday for our annual hunt when COVID crashed our hunting party. Two came up positive and others were exposed. At first I thought I would still go but then the other reality pressed in. I’m 71. I can hunt alone (and usually do) but I can’t drag a deer out by myself anymore. Artificial hips are great things just not for that kind of work.

I’m bummed but not alone. I have my expensive out-of-state deer tag to keep me company. :-)

So, to you, Lloyd, and to all of you, best heed the words of the late Jack Atcheson, Sr.

“Hunt while you can.”

Tis true. Tis true.
The increased blood flow is very good, and leaving one's cares behind is an exercise in itself.

We are besieged by gale force winds, trees crashing down, etc.
Deer can wait until tomorrow for me.

Not liking the news I'm hearing out here...oh well. Here's the distraction of elk hunting in NW Colorado:



Typically dirty and thirsty old 4x4...



Drive to the light eh?




Known locally as the "bear's ears"...



Ancient glass...




Our good deed for the day. This fellow spent the night in his car before we found him and pulled him out. Hard to understand why he was even out here (we played hell getting to this point in our 4x4 trucks). Biden voter?

He probably just fancied himself as following the science? Hope the roads stay firm, and have fun.

I think that generation of Subaru was pretty formidable in the rally circuit with the all time AWD - ground clearance and tires are another issue.
