After my kill I got to join Ray as the camp bitch. That basically consisted of cooking breakfast and dinner, though it meant I didn't have to go walking all over hell and tarnation anymore, so I was kind of happy about it.

I did get a chance to walk around Dwaine's property though and snap a bunch of pictures for a change. I had the most fun trailing this one deer. We probably watched each other for an hour or so. There would be no sport in hunting that stupid thing. I bet I could have fed it from my hand!!

We didn't get any more elk, but that's OK. There is always next year!!!

This is a shot of the hillside through some trees infested with bark beetles. They are what caused the California wild fires to be so bad. Bark beetles suck.

This is a shot down the hillside. Dwaine owns everything down to the meadow in the distance.
