I bumped some older stories up to the top for a new hunter to check out and then thought it might be nice to put links in one place.

I can't seem to remember the titles of a lot of the great stories from the past. So I'm not being successful with my searches. If anyone can remember the titles of stories that they enjoyed, please drop a link into this thread. Also, any really helpful threads like the BigDan interview.

He'll enjoy them and others probably will too. And it'd be nice to have links in one spot.

BB's "A Season on the San Jaun"

There was one about a guy just learning to call, on his first hunt in Idaho. He almost froze one night. he had two buddies but spiked way back by himself to find the elk. Called it from the opposite ridge and met it in the bottom. That was a good one.

07-Oct-16
Can you remember the title of it or who posted it? If you can think of it and search it up, post a link.

That was Steve Jo's "Idaho, solo, ultralight". I found it but it comes up in Bowsite mobile for whatever reason so no pics!

I think it would be interesting to see a list of all posts sorted by highest # of replies. Maybe Pat could add a more extensive search function that could do this by a selected date range also.

For some reason I can't find the link to the story I wrote up in 2014 of our WY elk hunt. That was a fun one... If someone else can find it, please post the link. I'm obviously not smart enough to run a computer today!!!

Dont waste your time reading the link Barty1970 posted...

I want those 10 minutes back...

11-Oct-16
I'm with cnelk. I'm not a big fan of how he comports himself, however I think his attitude highlights the extreme differences between the authors of every other story on this thread and Steve. I think that I would consider myself fortunate to share a camp with any of these other guys.

I hope that others will continue to post links to their stories or the quality stories of others that they've enjoyed. My lurking buddy has been reading voraciously and I've had fun revisiting them as well.

He he he...profuse apologies...but I couldn't resist

11-Oct-16
Yep. No need to apologize. Someone drew my attention back to that link. Apparently that forum reached saturation and made the decision to discontinue further stories from Steve. Bounced him and locked the thread.

No problem Scoot. Fantastic story again.

Got a PM and thought I'd bump this up. Please drop in a link to any of your favorite hunt stories. Resurrect them for others. Enjoying a story or two over the holidays will be nice.

It was a new elk hunter that prompted this thread, but the stories don't have to be elk stories.

From: Brun

My favorite is BB's story about unit 61 called something like "Of broken horns and broken dreams." I can't find it in the archives and I probably don't have the title exactly right. If anyone knows the exact title or how to find it, i think it would be a good one to be on here. Great thread by the way.

From: Treeline

BB definitely had some awesome experiences and takes some unbelievable photos! I tried looking for that one and couldn't find it either.

If this doesn't belong let me know and I can edit the post. This is my brief story of how my son and I began hunting a few years ago. I was finally able to place my tag on an elk this season. So grateful.
