Well the deer hunt is over and I shot nothing. I saw two bucks, a spike and two point. They wouldn’t stand still long enough for me to take a shot. It wasn’t all bad, I was able to see a moose one day.

On the first day, we drove on top of Skyline toward Tucker and that is when I spotted the spike. After that we drove to Lower Gooseberry and hiked a little while only seeing does.
We went in a canyon behind camp and only saw some does. Afterwards I went home and purchased two new atv tires. That evening we rode Skyline all the way to Bacon Rind and then turned around.
My brother and I hiked back into the canyon behind camp and could hear elk buggling. Soon we ran into a herd of cow elk. They seen us and were off on a dead run. Just a couple feet farther along, we saw a nice big bull. He was just walking through the trees. No deer that evening. That night I made some dutch oven peach cobbler. It turned out fine and was real easy to make.
The rest of the hunt was all but the same. Does, does and more does. We did see a two point but he was gone before I could get my gun ready. A moose came out for a look and that was about it.
It was nice to take some time off work and be in the mountains. Some good atv riding was had.
