I just got back from a wonderful vacation at Jackson Hole, WY, USA for my wife's 50th BD (don't tell her I mentioned her age ;) ) We went to South Africa for my 50th (see threads https://www.africahunting.com/threa...-goes-buck-wild-pt-2.44862/page-3#post-668831 and https://www.africahunting.com/threa...-buck-wild-2018-pt-1.44702/page-4#post-668432) but I thought this was a good trip for her. We had a wonderful time in both in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone ( USA's Kruger) natl parks. It just so happened that the day before we visited Yellowstone, a Grizzly bear drowned a bull elk in the river and had drug it up on shore to eat. The back story to the video is that several bulls had been fighting (breeding season right now) up the hill (in video you see a herd of elk on the hillside). Apparently the bull injured his left back leg from fighting and the grizz bear took full advantage !! The grizz is the apex predator for North America and I guess the equivalent of a lion. We were able to witness the grizz burying the elk and eating on it the next day.
It's amazing that the kill was caught on video- here it is for you entertainment

We also got to see a very good Shiras bull moose tending a cow, herds of bison, pronghorns, a black bear sow and cub and several bull elk although I really thought we'd see a few more. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and the great weather compared to leaving the Texas heat and humidity !! I came home to Tropical Storm Beta sitting 60 miles SW of me :(

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.

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

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
