The client took this bull west of Trinidad in the Sangre De Cristo’s
The elk has removable antlers and is removable from the base for easy of movement. The base is one of my hand built bases and is made of solid Cherry wood.

WOW! Wish I had space for something that nice! I might get more choosy about what I pull the trigger on.
Great job Erik!

I was supposed to go bear hunting next month up there. I canceled the trip so I could get more work done prior to leaving for Brazil.
It’s a good area to hunt and I have hunted up there many times. Public land can get really crowded though during rifle seasons early bear season being the exception. There is a ton of game around there though.

Good deal, you should do well. Elk numbers are very strong.
Yessir, I’ll be in Brazil later part of October. Kelly and crew will still be and the studio holding down the fort while I’m gone.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
