Not that I needed any help getting fired up but things went into overdrive after rubbing shoulders with a bunch of elk slaying Bowsiters yesterday. A few beers and some great food had the elk stories flowing. Great guys, every one!

Thanks to Brad (cnelk) for hosting the event again and hopefully some of that elk killing mojo rubbed off on me!

That is a gathering that I should be sitting in a corner, shutting up, and taking notes.

Looks like quite the gaggle!

You sure any of those guys know what an elk even looks like?

Bet there was plenty of fun and BS’n. Might have even been some stories about something other than elk!

Good luck this fall!

Looks like a good time with some good guys! I sure hope hydration was a priority, you have to stay hydrated Nick! :)

Tons of fun, and Brad was a terrific host as always! Great to finally meet Nick and Paul, and see the rest of the crew again! The beverages were flowing, as well as the bulls..., er, stories. Ha!

There was a covert operation put on by elk across Colorado trying to poison the beer. Apparently it failed...

From: cnelk

Hell yeah guys! Fun stuff.

Stories about Nick getting charged by a bear in Steamboat the other day, Lou's cow moose chase, and many other tall tails.

Home made margaritas, beers, Paul's wild goose, smoked sausage and wings, plus many other good eats

We'll definitely do it agin

Had to be a lot of fun.

Was the picture taken by one of Lou's yoga pants wearing hippy chick guides?

I'll bet there were some tall tales! Some may have almost been true??.

Good times for sure.

OB, my hippie chick guide GF was in attendance but not the photographer. Right then I believe she and cnelk's GF were mixing up another batch of orange margs...

Great time with this bunch, as always,! Paul's BBQed pulled yard hopper sliders were exceptitional. We need to do this more often.

Hey Lou, this was one of the geese (yard hopper) that provided Goose BBQ for the sliders.

Looks like fun for sure!

Heck, I don’t even have an elk tag this year!

Haven’t decided if I’m even gonna get a tag, yet.

Now if we were gonna get fired up about mule deer season, that’s a whole ‘nother ball game!

You know what's going to happen if you don't have that elk tag in your pocket while deer hunting. Good luck, Tavis!

Nice! I’ll be getting out scouting mule deer with my boy next week:). Will see if his lungs still work after being down in Texas!

Hopefully there will still be some nice bucks above treeline down in some of my old buck haunts!

Either of you guys got a deer tag?

Would love to see both of you take up the “challenge “ and get a couple of elk “the old fashioned way” this fall!

Good luck! I know you’re going to have a blast no matter what!

Looks like a great time! I never realized Jaq was so tall- or is it Midwest and wyobullshooter are just that short? ;-)

I just figured Lou was standing on the case of beer to protect it!

It's all good for sure.

Good luck, Robb

Go fishing where your going to go hunting. Did it this past weekend and ran into a group of bulls and a couple of cow calf pairs, definitely gets you fired up. I love the smell of a steaming pile of elk crap in the morning.
