    Looks beautiful

  • Mike's avatar

    @Donovan and as usual, pics can’t touch it with any justice.

  • David's avatar

    Looks awesome Mike.

  • Joshua's avatar

    @Mike mike what pack are you using

  • Mike's avatar

    @David it sure is Dave. I’m betting the kid moves here after finishing his PhD in geology. He’s been awestruck the entire time.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Joshua not sure why the photo won’t attach, but this is the pack I’m wearing and my son is using my badlands Diablo VT.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Joshua you can get lighter, but not maintain the space and durability.

  • Tyler's avatar

    Awesome 💪💪

  • Mike's avatar

    @Tyler absolutely man. If I could find an OTC place like this I’d be in Heaven….

  • James's avatar

    Man I can’t wait to go on adventures like this with my kids some day! Looks amazing buddy!

  • Tyler's avatar

    @Mike I’m assuming you’re back from your trip? The suspense is killing me lol. Your only posting day 1 lol

  • Chuck's avatar

    And so it begins…….

  • Mike's avatar

    @James start planning now brother! This took 19 points (20 years of applying). Similar hunts for archery and muzzleloader take significantly less points, but 5-6 still means you’re only gonna get so many in. OTC hunts are fun, but 15-18% success rates make it more like camping than SERIOUS hunting. I’ve killed plenty OTC, but the amount of game we experienced on this trip was tenfold.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Tyler 🤣. We just rolled in. I’m gonna do a day at a time so I’ll be able to look back on the highlights of each day and relive it all. Couldn’t have asked for a better time with my son.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Chuck haha, yessir. And I’m sorry to say that there’s no way you’re going to enjoy the ride near as much as we did. But man…. To see the smiles and enjoyment on my son’s face will be with me forever.

  • Chuck's avatar

    @Mike just giving you crap but really looking forward to keeping up as the story unfolds. The freezer full of meat will be gone but the memory of the cherished shared time with your son will last forever.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Chuck absolutely. This one lived up to the hype in my head for sure

    So awesome! I love the mountains but bc of my job never really have a chance to go in fall. Enjoy my friend

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg I thought of you and your climbs several times on this trip man. Especially everything over 11,000 feet.

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike that's what am working towards sman
    Epic country. Great climbs and even better views man

  • Mike's avatar

    @Spikes thanks Spikes, it had been way too long since I’d been out in the mountains. Felt a little like going home again

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg we could see several 14’ers that would be awesome to hit some day

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike man, Al new new lungs after this one's 🤔, or k ees, possibly knees 🤪🤣

  • Ferg's avatar

    Those

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike might have to borrow your hammer 😆😆🤣

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg hahaha, my hammer is getting some much needed rest. It’ll be good to go again in a few days though 🤣👊

  • Ferg's avatar

    😆😆🤣

  • Ferg's avatar

    Now that's how to get up mountains ⛰️ 🤣

  • John's avatar

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’ll be in NewFoundland chasing Moose this year, but back at it in 2024 chasing the elk! Good luck and be safe and most of all “enjoy the show!”

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg no pain, no gain brother 👊

  • Mike's avatar

    @John good luck! Moose is next on my list👊

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike well there's tons of pain, so there should be plenty gain 🤣

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike now that's a feast pr ten in the making man.
    Where you heading to for that

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg not sure yet. Probably Ontario since it’s the most affordable

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike it's really not that far from You man.
    Easy run back with a few freezer boxes full of moose meat

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg exactly

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike go get em man, it sounds like a real deal adventure man

  • Mike's avatar

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Mike an adventure with yer lad man, that's some real memories eh

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg right on

  • David's avatar

    Looks beautiful, don't think I'd come back

  • Mike's avatar

    @David if it weren’t for family, I’d easily stay there forever man. Or at least as long as my legs could take it🤣
