2016 Season In Review
We started out the season the second week of September with archery. The bulls were bugling all week, that always makes for an exciting hunt. The weather was a little too warm all fall which made the season a little tougher and made the guides work harder, yet we felt it was a successful year.
It is always nice to start off the year with old friends and make new acquaintances throughout the season. We sadly said good bye to our friend and guide Zach Babat, who died in a plane crash in Alaska. He was a great part of our team and was greatly missed.
We had a great team of guides this year, Sam and Jake were back again and Newt, Luke’s nephew started his guiding career. It is always a relief to have great guides in the field to ensure the hunt is enjoyable and successful. With the weather so nice Wayne was able to serve lunch outside many days. As always he did a super job in making sure everyone went home well fed!
We added a Honda Pioneer side by side and new tack shack to the camp this year. The Pioneer was a great tool in making it easier for game retrieval and assisting our diverse age of hunters get to the perfect spot to get an elk.
