'morning All,

I headed out for my Last Hunting Trip of the year to the NER in Jackson Hole, not a bad place to end the year.

Also the last Elk Hunting trip for my 2010 F350/V-10 as it is kissing 97,000 miles and I have a C/D maturing in February that is ear marked for a new 2019 F350.

Long day driving but very enjoyable scenery wise.

That looks like the Cowboy Cabins in JH... Stayed in them before. Nice hunt to you. More pics please. Here I am above the NER, a couple springs ago. Over looking JH and the ski area in town there.

Love that area.

Went there on my honeymoon and did my first elk hunt north of town.

A bit of a highjack... but I was flipping channels the other evening and came across this show called Higher. It was an episode where a few guys roped their way up to the summit of Grand Teton and skied down the Otterbody. I had not even known there was a ski-able route, and having seen the Grand a number of times, find it rather amazing. Your pic brought that back to the front of my mind. Cool place to be for sure, and I always enjoy seeing fresh pictures.

No doubt the Jackson area is beautiful. But it can definitely get cold! I had a good hunt this fall. A good time scouting and relaxing in August.

I ordered a 2018 F250 last February Bull.....you are going to like the 2019. It took until mid-April to get mine made and take delivery on it. I like this new one even better than the F250 I had before that one. Lots more cool technology......I love the camera in back...I can pin point position that trailer hitch within a 1/2 inch. I highly recommend the heated seats and remote start.

Did your snotcicles melt off since you sent me the pic the other day, Rob

I killed my mountain lion about an hour south of there. Some of the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen out there.

Watched a show recently about the Tetons. Named by some very lonely French explorers...... said Teton was French for titties! How Grand!

Looking forward Robb. Thanks for takin' us along!

Been a few years, but after our elk hunt (for 3 years in a row) we would go in past the Teton village and cow call and bugle for fun with the elk - was a blast. Bring on the pics Robb.

Great Pix fella's!!

Thanks for the heads-up on the newer F350's, I am on the Build Your Truck link via ford.com

Joe did ya ride the Hog out to JH or just trailer it?

They have had those Jackson Hole Cams for a few years now, they have a few that overlook the NER too.

The Buff are hangin' closer but I personally did not see any on the NER

Good luck, Robb

First thing I thought was, nice truck! Funny cause the next second I read your getting rid of it. Somebody will get a good deal hopefully, 97k is nothing on that motor if it’s been taken care of.

Beautiful place! Brings back memories of where my wife and I spent our honeymoon. Fished lake Jenny and caught some great cutthroat. Can't wait to get back some day.

Thanks!

Every 3K an oil change since having 18 miles on the F350 when I bought it and I wax it twice a year.

I bought the F350 in June 2010, so my new 2019 will prolly get to me from the factory April/May? so I have had a great run with it for like 9 years, ( I have always had good fortune with trucks built at the Kentucky Ford plant)

Good luck, Robb

I hunt the South Unit as it is restricted to Short Range type weapons, Bow, Muzzy or Shotgun.

I have been using my recurve on all my bow hunts this year.

This year, kinda like last year most of the elk on the South Unit stayed out of boundary to far west.

So I went to the North Unit with my Recurve.

Thanks for the kind words.

Nice Rides Joe!

Mr. t - roy-------> My '99 was a 4-door but I went back to the Reg cab on my'05 and on this '10. I kinda like 'em…..

Jim ~~ I am a Toyo guy, on the F350 I go 18's x 35's, MT's from mid-October thru mid-May, then AT's for summer I don't think a guy can go wrong with any Name Brand tire.

On my '17 JP, I have 20's and AT's for summer and 18's with MT's for winter.

bghunter, I'll toss ya a PM with the Intel.

Thanks again All

Good luck, Robb
