DIY Backcountry Elk Again 2022

(1/2) > >>

Gil Verwey:
Went on a couple of DIY Elk hunts about 10 years ago. Both myself and hunting partner had been under the weather for a while. Whenever we don't feel as healthy as we should, there is only one thing to do - backpack into the backcountry for elk! We went when we were 57 and 58, in 2022 we will be 69 and 70.   https://www.facebook.com/100029963913677/videos/pcb.527575768251216/527572598251533

You'll be glad you did it even if it kills ya...I'm 66 and chase elk every year...killed a bear last night and it ran down into a typical north Idaho brush hole. Packed it out in one trip this morning (no hide) in my slippers (kinda)...came home and took a nap...now I'm ready to go fishing for a few days before I buy a second bear tag... :bigsmyl:

Take lots of naps and enjoy ur trip....don't forget to share with us other aging one when ya get back...
we all need encouragment :thumbsup:

I remember your post well, Elk Paradise or something along that line, between that post and meeting Aron Snyder about the same time, I became inspired and purchased some top end Kifaru gear for me and my wife and we started camping in aways instead of at the truck. Many thanks to you!

Gil, I really enjoyed reading your elk prep and adventures from 10 years ago and look forward to read your new adventures. :clapper:
