Times have changed. Last year we were tripping on moose out here, and had a hard time finding elk. This year, the moose are scarce, and the elk are far easier to find. This is bad news as I have a calf moose tag. Filling it this year will be a challenge.
Dinner in ‘camp’ tonight? Fresh cow elk tenderloin in cambozola cream sauce with onions and mushrooms. And a favorite bordeaux to wash it down, of course. I figure this is one of those occasions that warrants a nice bottle.
Another thing that has changed – last year there was no wireless connection here. This year, there is. So I will be able to post while up here.
Today’s tally. I saw a couple elk driving up here, and we saw about 20 deer on this evening’s drive. Zero moose. Ouch. We saw 2 grouse, both of which I’m happy to report are in our fridge now – both Ruffed grouse. Tomorrow morning, calf moose season opens. Big day.
