"finger ridge" Discussed on Cutting The Distance with Remi Warren

"This is really. the story. Started a great thanksgiving tradition of essentially being successful on thanksgiving day. And it just so happens to be my first six point bullying in one of my better publicly and bulls. I've i've really taken in general area. That season i was out hunting lot. I spent a lot of time during the archery season. But then was taking other people during rifle and i had that last week of thanksgiving off to kind of hunt for myself. I'd passed up a ton of nice bulls with my boat. I really wanted to get a good six by six. Was just kind of a goal that i had but you know it was now or never is the thursday of thanksgiving and i only had until sunday to fill my tag so my dad and i went out and we went to a place where i'd been hunting quite a bit started the morning early in my favorite glossing spot. It was just freezing cold that day. Little bit of snow on the ground and we glossed across the canyon and happened to see a pretty good bull in like a larger group on this finger ridge in this burn that i've been watching kind of all year so i knew that there's a lot of elk. There is a long ways away from where we're glossing but we thought okay. Let's give it everything you've got now. Of course we did have thanksgiving plans for dinner at a friend's house with my mom and some other family Little earlier that afternoon we didn't make any promises that we act but we kind of hinted that were just going out to look around and and go for a hunt so we start our trek over there. It's a it's a nice bowl and obviously we aren't gonna turn away from an a good bowl so we started getting over there and it's about maybe a six mile hike and we've got to climb up this one mountain and then down the other side and as we're hiking over there maybe a mile away. I hear a gunshot kind of in that general area and there is a couple of groups there one group. That was a little closer to the way that we're going to bigger bowl. And there's another six point in that or at least what i could tell through spotting scope with the distance in that other group so i'm going down the ridge and sure enough. Here's a six point that somebody else had shot like dang. Well it's still aways from that other group let's go to that backup group and see if we can't find him so we keep working down the ridge. We get the wind right all these finger ridges at drop down so we get about the elevation of where the car in the sun's now but there's kind of clouds moving back and forth so we just kind of figured okay. Well bulls will probably still be in that group sunning on that side. They've got no reason to move. You know there's no other tracks going down there from hunter so we started working in working in sure enough spot some cows sweet now at this point in the day. It's starting to get evening time. It's like maybe forty five minutes before shooting time ends something like that. So heard starts feeding out into the timber across the ridge. Like all right within range cow cow. I'm just watching through my rifle scope. I'm set up my dad. I knew that we had to hustle to get into position and my dad at that time wasn't as good a shape as he is now so i kind of just kind of left him in the dust a little bit just to try to get into position for a shot so i mean position by myself and elk just kind of starting to filter through filter through their moving up in a moving through the trees moving through the trees and here comes the six point i see him. I'm like okay sweet. I see him walking walking. He's in the trees and there's very few openings. I think there's this one opening. So i get a call and i'm set up and i call any takes a couple more steps and stops. Am i sweet. Perfect lineup shot shoot own. And all i see is the branch like between me and the elk with a pine cone on it like fairly large branch fall out of the sky and i knew that i'd hit that tree and not hit the elk. I did not hear a solid thump. Whatever i'm like crap. This sucks all the elk runoff. I'm pretty mad at myself for not noticing that tree in that trajectory it was only maybe three hundred yard shot but i just was so focused on that i just i center punch that branch in that bullet flight and it just felt like could have this big pine cone and just seemed like it fell forever giant ponderosa and damage. This didn't work out. But i instead just started sprinting. Too where the elk were running over. It was a pretty steep slippery slope. And i just sprinted up to the regia. They were in there. They are across the other side filing up single file. The bull gets to the top. I locate the bull. Throw the scope up over log three rifle over log squeeze the trigger boom. Hit the ball. He stops turns a little bit or just stands there. Boom one more in the ball goes down now. Mike sweet six point bowl. My dad finally. Here's the shooting. He's pretty excited. He makes it up to me like oh. This is awesome. Know the canyon where they were gonna cross was a pretty rugged canyon so like all right. Let's let's work our way over there and we're we're excited. This is like the biggest bull. Either of us have ever killed You just like an awesome awesome day. Now this is before we obviously had no accel phone service or anything at a cell phone but You know we're expected to be back at dinner. Maybe around darker whatever but we knew now having just shot this bull just before dark it was going to be a long night so we get up to the bowl. Kind of like this is awesome. Okay where we can. What are we are. We gonna take him out. Going back up is going to be too long. But there's a way down. That's you know if we get to the bottom of the canyon you know we can go out that way and then climb one last a smaller mountain out and then maybe get picked up on the highway kind of hitch a ride back back to our vehicle. So we're like okay. That sounds good. I'm in might not be bad to come back in this way tomorrow. And maybe in time saving way up here on the top but if we could get this whole bowl down to the bottom you know we're going to try to hustle back and make it back for our thanksgiving deer so my dad has this ideas like oh it's pretty steep hill. Maybe we could just slide the bull to the bottom. Now this this point It's it's a little bit darker what's actually dark by this point by the time we got to. So he's thinking okay we'll just slide the ball to the bottom mike. Okay yeah that is if it takes off. It's going to be really difficult to control him. And who knows where he's going to go. So my dad society you know so we start dragging him and once we head up. He goes too fast so he kind of have to drop the head down and we're trying to hold him keep him from going super fast down the mountain but also you know within a normal range of speed to make it easier on ourselves to get him down so my dad has his brilliant idea. He's like okay. Hold my stuff. I'm going to just kind of like get on the back of this bull and lift his head up and try to just kind of like sled him down slow and i think okay. Just be careful. Don't kill yourself please. yeah okay. So he's got his headlamp on starting to he's like behind the elks so it doesn't go over the top of him and he's lifting belks head up and is they'll starting to slide and he's kind of sliding with it and he lifts the elks head up and starting to slide will somehow in this process the bull starts to take off..

"My career right. So i'm probably i should be. This should be like at late. Forties should be like like you'd think that right now would be this moment of just perfection and you don't make mistakes. It was dammed close right. I mean it was. That goes in a real tough on. And it took us a lot of patients to work through that country it that that wasn't a slam dunk. That wasn't alexis. Climb up over this ridge and as soon as you look over the top. How long did it take us to get in a spot. Where where you get a shot. We started started five hours staw. He was five hours. Yeah in and out of view for majority of it. There's a lot that can go wrong in that. So yeah i mean to your point. Yeah we should you feel like you should have every base covered. But then in hindsight i look back and given the information we had at the time. I wouldn't have changed anything that we did. Oh absolutely not when. I was sitting here when we finally found him. Three hundred yards way in his head away from the standup. I was being like astounded by the good fortune because there was a lot of ways when we were trying to put that little puzzle together there was a lot of ways. I also wanted point on was called in the middle of the night when i was sitting here. Wake my ira. Once we got there and lert. When i was flirting with storming his ridgetop would not have been a good plan. Once i saw what it was actually like up there no stars the rich would have been you know you never know when you go storm orig- it could go like you never know. Yeah but wouldn't have been a great ridge storm. It would have been like you could have killed them with a knife. there would have been like either. Didn't get him or got him with a knife. By the time you like popped into zone when you when you arrived in his own you'd have been like on. Presumably he would not be there anymore. But let's say he was deprived of smell and sense of vision and no sense of smell or sorry. No sense of hearing and no sense of smell it would have been a knife fight and you would have gone off other demise so i wanted to point out to you kurt. You're feeling that storm. The ridge was not smart was not yeah you that perspective of years as validated by the actual layout which was not quite how i envisioned it i. It was a lot smaller there. Everything just looks a little bit larger for example. We thought that he was sixty or eighty yards from that pinnacle. And you get up there and find out that matters only ten or fifteen yards or twenty yards that it. It's weird how perspective from that lower elevation as you're working up into that country how it changes so much man Dirt had pointed out on this. Billy goat we are stock and dirt pointed out. He was bedded on a knife ridge. So there's kind of like the primary range not even the range. It was like sort of the primary ridge line. There's like a a very steep of finger. Ridge that comes off and he's better. He can look everything to the right. Everything the laughed and in straight ahead is just sky but it doesn't matter because nothing come up that thing and he's bedded on a religious. No wider him. He was like his body consumed. The entire width of the ridgetop was like laying on a knife. Yeah i was impressive. And if he rolled foot you know the opposite way that he was looking. He would've fell several feet. I wouldn't be able to sleep up there. No all off those things like heights. Yeah we don of goofy little ridge like that one time she hunting and my brother masks that if i'm not here in the morning boots off can i ask her to question just to your point about you think you should get to a point where you're not learning. I mean you've accumulated so much knowledge. There shouldn't be learning process inexperience. Did you learn something new this week. Oh yeah yeah absolutely I think the communication portion. I thought about that where we were in the spot where you're set up and i was trying to one of the things that we hadn't talked about his shot placement especially to your point about hitting them in the shoulder and when we were trying to kind of communicate back and forth that both of us are on the same page to try to hit in that shoulder afterwards. I thought i should have communicated more on the hair that you had done that. I'd be picking blood off undermining really. It's my fault. i hope you woke up to in the morning when i woke up last night. It was like upper very long time. And i remember looking at my phone. How only two or like up just obsessing and it just turned into anger for kirk. Know the answer my phone if it rings it to you this morning. Yeah in the end of apocalypse. Now kurtz doesn't need talk about.

"Welcome back everyone it is finely September, and if you're like me, you've been thinking about these days since the beginning of March when we first heard about the single covert and you're like now but we got all cutting in September that elk cutting is finally here over the last couple weeks a few weeks about a month I've been going over some of my favorite tactics especially, a lot of calling as far as escalating the challenge with a bowl and then creating a party with cow elk and then using decoys and I kind of realized. That we've got a pretty extensive library going of some really great elk hunting tactics that I'm not necessarily sure our shared, very many other places and these are things that I found through the years really work. So what I WANNA. Do is we're GONNA go back and I'm going to pull out some of the highlights of things that I've found in past episodes and give you one final just compilation of incredible elk tips. So between the last stuff and this stuff, you should be well on your way to harvesting a bull elk this September. If, I were to break down elk hunting into basic steps. Step one, find the elk. If you can't find the can't hunt the oak now it seems pretty obvious but whether you're going into a new area or maybe you're in an area of hunted before or an area that you've scouted or planning on hunting in the GIS, don't happen to be where you thought they were going to be or where you're hunting. What do you do? What I do is I pull out my mapping software and I do some e scouting beforehand as well as while I'm in the field if I'm looking for new spots and things aren't panning out properly. Now, I'm going to go over what I do on my onyx map and the type of Tokyo lines that I look for the type of habitat that looked for and how to key in on the things elk need digitally, you can get out in the field and have a better chance of figuring out where they are in real life. So we're going to go back to episode twelve, and I'm just GonNa pull out my phone on this episode and run you through what I'm looking for to find elk. So I'm going to open up my app right now, and then I'm going to give you a quick rundown of the things that I'm looking at. So let's say let's go for this. We're hunting elk. I'm going to grab a random unit Montana and then I'm just GonNa Kinda look and say what I'm doing and what I'm looking for just like our planning out hunt in the area that I've never been. Okay. So the cool thing about this APP is it has the unit so I can start their I've got the onyx Hon APP Open I'm in Montana Randomly. scrolling screens lands on a unit. I won't tell you what unit is probably end up giving someone secret spot away but I've got the unit. So that's a start. Now I'm looking for public ground because that's the kind of tag. I have. I don't have access where I'm going. So I'm now going to be having the layers on that. Show me public and private ground. I always start my map at the Topa level. Okay. Because what I'm doing is I'm trying to key in on key features that really hold animals when you think about finding say elk or any animal, they all need three key things doesn't matter. You're hunting antelope sheep, whatever they need the right habitat this sustains them, and for that, they need food water uncover. Or some kind of as far as antelope go they don't really use cover, but they need open is their cover because a user eyesight. So you Kinda just have to understand the animal a little bit, but you have to find the three things that create good habitat. Now. I'm looking for I'm going to find something that probably has food water cover in a smaller area where I like to start as I like to start looking at ridges, finger ridges and head basins..

"Oh And then kind of like, let it sit and sometimes what you'll do site other cows in that area to talk back, they might be doing, okay. What's going on is the group moving will let's communicate where's everyone at, and that's a great way to hone in on maybe cows hunting area that would be more difficult to hunt bulls in where it might be a finger ridge that they're bedded on in the middle. Then you can kind of get them to sound off. Then you can kind of start working your way in sneak in and really you just. Just have to find that one cow, that's closest that offers you shot. So in that sense, it's a little bit easier, but there's also those tactics that you can use another thing that I find works really. Well, you know I've had success just like say a herd of Elk. You know where your bugling bulls, you can get those those bulls to come in. But how do you maybe say archery season get a cow to come in to call and most of the time what happens is maybe you've watched the herds were split up. There's those leftover cows. Cows, what I try to do is try to intersect them, cut them off, and then throw out like a cow call and what they think is, oh, the heard went this way in that draws those cows. You I've had a lot of success doing that during archery seasons where the heard starts moving I, do kind of especially if the larger heard me, there's always a few stragglers back behind, you just hustle and get into position where this other cows kind of win over or in that area, and then you start calling, they're gonNA using sent a lot but. But also you know some of the younger cows will use that sound. They'll be like, oh, okay. Yeah. They went this way and you can pull those cows away, and then like I mentioned in for the bull hunting getting into a group of cows that's bedded throwing out some calls, you never hurts because I, have had cows just walk into that as well. I, think that there's a lot of people headed out there with cow tags the it's an awesome tagged to have. It's some of the best meat I know I've said, it's a broken record, but. It's a really fun hunt and I'm actually looking forward to my cow tag as well. It's one of those things. It's funny. You know you. You've got full tags, you do this and that one of the tags and I'm really excited about was a cow tag that I drew in an area that I just really liked to hunt and it's a great way as well. If you're listening to this and you're like I'm not, I don't have a cow tiger whatever you know think about getting if you hunt areas that are premium limited entry areas. Or not hunt them have been applying so in. Nevada. Were Hunter or just a lot of places where I'm thinking about going hunting elk, but it might take ten twenty years to draw whatever. Look at getting cow tags in those areas. Man What you learn while hunting. Those cows you're out there. You're hunting, you get to go home with me is not just a scouting trip for the future you're hunting, but what you're also doing is learning in area. So when you draw that bowl tag when you have an opportunity to hunt bull there. You've already hunted in that unit. You already have some kind of knowledge on that area, and that is just huge, and that's something that I really like to do is try to get a cow tag where I may not have an opportunity to hunt a lot, but there's a lot of elk. It's a great tag to have, and I can kind of dual purpose into scouting for the future when I might draw that tag later. This next question comes from Steve. He says a Steve's from Wisconsin. He says Harumi, questioned for your podcasts. Do you have any tactics used for postseason elk as lucky? Enough to draw first season Colorado rifle hunt looking forward to hearing from you. I think that the poster right now I should've looked up I'm not exactly sure what the Colorado first season dates are this year. You know I did a lot of guiding in New Mexico during the beginning of October season or in the most a lot of the Montana and Idaho stuff is that like mid October October. So it's kind of like this little season. It's after the. Rut. But before really any migration maybe. Maybe before any winner movement and it can be, it can be difficult time to hunt, but it can also be a really good time to hunt because you're just going to focus in on the behaviors that elk are doing at that time. So after the Rut here's what generally happens the bowl separate from the cows. Now, it depends what kind of bull you're looking for because if you're just looking for any bill. You can still at this time focus on the cows, a lot of those younger bulls, some of the smaller four points, five points, what we might call Rag Horn Bulls might be hanging out with those groups of cows still in that is very likely. I've even heard bugling in these groups all the way through October. Twenty. Fifth. Twenty sixth. So you may not see those big heard bulls in there, but you still might a really depends on the Rut in the year, but you can kind count on smaller bulls still being with big groups a cows. Way To focus your attention. Now, the other way is to understand what a lot of the Bulls will do. They'll pull away from the cows they've read. Now they're going to recuperate, and what they're going to do is they're going to go find an isolated pocket or they've got food water and cover, and the really aren't getting messed with. They've just had enough. They're. They're tired. There were out and they're. They'RE GONNA, they're gonNA draw away and almost kinda like you know not really go far for a lot of things conserving their energy in their building it back up for the winter. This is probably honestly one of the best times to target big bulls. Now, they can be harder to find. But when you do find them, it's a lot easier getting in on a more predictable. They're almost pattern -able. And they just they aren't moving as much. So it's like you know you could find a big bowl during the Rut, but he might be running as cows. All over the mountain might go from this group to that group because he got kicked out, you may never see that elk again, if you can locate a bull in this post threat period, they're generally by themselves. So easy to stock, they're kind of following this feed bed pattern. So what I like to do is I like to kind of glass fringes in like navy pockets in thick timber that have an opening or meadow, round it there near where high concentrations were during the September season if you had time to Scout. Glossing a lot of those pockets than you see, see the elk in the morning mornings and evenings generally were they're gonNA come out. Then you'll get up in their wait for the evening. He'll probably either come out in the evening or hunt in that same area. Know like the next day because they're going to be within that same area that kind of call like the scoff kind of sulking, recalibrate their on their little post rut retreat. But it's a great time to sneak in on Elkin. It can be a great time. You know that October season. If there's an archery season that goes into October, most people all fired up about hunting the Rut, but man, you can get some great elk hunting in some bigger bulls just by focusing. Focusing in on that October season where those bigger bowls of pulled off on their own, they're very vulnerable that time is probably the most vulnerable time of year for a big boy, elk would be that later season. So you've got two options. You can go hunt those solitary bulls, or you can kind of still go find those the bigger, the herd of cows that better than just more likely to have illegal bullard to with them. So couple of options for you their..

"How many trees does he have that he will rousson and does he have well? He does add randomly. Add trees of that list or does he like got like I ruse. They're they're they're they're and they're and that's why roost. Each bird has roosting areas that they go to. They don't necessarily use the same tree every time they go there at least Easterns Rios and Mariam's Obviously Rooster Limited in some of those populations. So they go back to the exact same tree but easterns don't do that. We see that almost every Gabor has a handful or more range areas that they use but they don't use them back to back nights. During the spring they tend to use a recite site here and then they moved to a different roost that night and then they moved to a different reuss the following night but other birds will come to the rules that they abandon. All that explains a little bit because I read in Colorado. They did a study. And there's only thirteen percent chance that a Turkey reuss into these gablers. There's only a thirteen percent chance that he'd roots in the same tree two nights in a row. That's right and if you think about it you know back to these legs. They're very likely are places that are good for sound for sound to travel and they're they're somewhat static unless there's clearcutting or something that changes the force. They're probably fairly static. So they're certain places where I hear this all the time I've been here in Turkey's air for twenty years. Yep You have and you didn't hear the same birds night after night. Which actually heard was this bird moved and his buddy came in and roosted in that same area because these birds no they're certain places where sound carries and that's why they're gobbling gobbling to hear each other and to attract hens so there's probably some places that are just good reuss areas. So what do you think? Odds are that on Monday. I went out season. Wasn't open or or. Let's say you know it was evening and I went out and rooster bird. Heard him on a ridge? But I couldn't hunt for two or three days. I go back in there three days later in the morning on that. Same Ridge there. He is Goblin. What are the odds of? That's the same bird I- roosted three nights earlier it was three nights later it. There's a decent chance that may be the same bird if it was the next night. There's a better chance not as a better chance that he somewhere else than him. Being there two nights in a row now Turkey's like people in there like deer everything else. They're all different so we do. We've had some Tom's that may and they were. They were money going back to the same spot every night for three or four nights in a row. Niki beat but by and large across the population. That's not a strategy that US. And which is what's interesting is if they don't do that from the time they're pulse. I mean brewed hands don't roost in the same spot. Two nights in a row they move roost every night. If you think about it that makes sense from Predation Stan. Roy Don't go signal in the same spot every night. Because you're just attracting undue attention move around a little bit and don't pigeonhole yourself to the same place like Rio have to do that. They have limited ru sites and there may be four five trees in an entire home. Range that reuss locations and they go back there every night but rios roost in large numbers and in large numbers their safety. There's more is there's more ears. There's more Predator detection. You've got an eastern. That standing there with him and his buddy is right down the ridge and there. It's just two of them it just so people who aren't familiar. Rios have limited roosting because their parents limited ripe hearing areas. That's right they could be surrounded by. Pine Ridge is our area with no tree. Yes and you're seeing across the Rio range. Cottonwoods are really important tree species for them and in many areas you're see widespread loss of cottonwoods to disease shoes and that's causing drastic reduction in roost availability to the point where some of our Rios only have. We have several marked birds that have only had to roost and their entire home range. No kidding so you flip. A coin they're going to be at one of those two clumps of cottonwoods every night you're talking about having a great tree where people can hear you You see that with blue grouse Alaska. Yeah when you can you can haunt him in the spring on their call right and you go find them. And sometimes they'll be like yeah like a big main Ridge and here's a finger ridge coming off net finger. Richard have kind of a home that sticks out and there'd be some giant treeline and and he's up in that thing and he just broadcast into the world was just like hanging out looking out over everything you know and you'd get out there and be like I bet you he's gotta be in that tree right and he's into some crazy tree where he's like like got a megaphone up. Interesting is the one other bird than big that you can hunt during this ring. That's right but it's limited in scope very limited. It's only a few weeks. And I suspect how many harvested during the spring. I think that it's it's tough and it's like it's like they like I said a forty five degree angle like a forty five minute boat ride. Go to a remote island. You know the Honam so yeah. I don't think there's a ton of pressure I wouldn't think so but man it's like it's great if I had if I could do that or hunter. He's got a hard time deciding. I've never hunted to Bluegrass but I'll I tried for sure it's fallen man. You gotTA GO WITH OUR FRIEND. Bar WHATEVER. Just show you. What's up drives you pull your hair. I I could see that beaver being very frustrating. Just thinking about what you just said steep inclines a lot of work and then it doesn't pay off. Well I like the thing that like when you hear a Turkey guy. We started getting close to kind of be like well. He must be right over there. These things the sound the noise they make which who who who. You can't place it also. It's down in the environment. Yeah you're just like I don't know man somewhere within one hundred yards of meat. Is doing that noise right? I don't know what direction that would make Sanchez. It's more like You kind of feel it. Yeah like talk drunk or feeling like you kind of know. He's drumming over in that area. It is a rough drawn. That drumming is a little different from where you thought it was. I had it right there and in reality it's right over there. Yeah you can basically be like within a hundred. I can tell you within about one hundred eighty degrees where yeah yeah. Well I WANNA follow up a little bit more on. The Predator populations like outside of loafer prices. What else is causing the big boom? We see snakes are a huge Predator of of eggs and pulse. And I don't remember seeing that when I was a student if you look at many areas of the of the United States particularly the you know where I do most of my work. It's become brusher shrub. Beer woody or less prescribed fire less land disturbance Pine monoculture edges fragmentation and snakes benefit from that so we see snakes account for forty percent of Nas law some snow site. Yeah Rodney Eggs. Yes rats snakes and they killed a pulse and a friend of mine. Who's WHO's really. Yeah who's our guide at? Uga Is has told me that rat snakes. All prices are down. Yeah he said that rat. Snakes are really savvy sage predators that they tend to revisit nast so if they go and they eat three or four eggs in this area they'll go back and keep searching keep searching keep searching until they get all the eggs real. Yeah so if you think about it. Even if she's laying right. She hasn't finished the clutch and the snake shows up and pick all four at snakes going back to that clutch before it's over said you know all send on the. Old Testament was right man. Yeah and and John was telling me this buddy. He's like man if eggs or they're they're going to find them so I think they're fine from smell. They a keen sense of smell as a snake has it. They also are visual predators. They sit in Shrub mid story under story and they watch really and there's the guy good long they got some type of law vision that they know something there and I think probably what's happening is as these. Birds are leaving their clutches for recess. Right there moving away and back and forth that through time the sense that the key the snake keys in on that nest site and it doesn't take that many days and if they're numerically more of these snakes than there were that just through the law of averages more Nassar going to be eating so to your question that snakes are are important Predator by far And there's more than because the habitat is good for them. Yes basically what we've done is create a landscape that's better for predators and Turkey's basically in many areas. Here's my last question for you. Why do why did Turkey when you shoot a Turkey? Sometimes it's bodies beat the hell out of how is their desire to get each other when they're down higher than their desire like get away from a loud sudden gunshot like what is it. That so keyed up to wait for a moment of weakness. That's their social hierarchy. That's that pecking order. Where Turkey I was. I've been told Turkey's they fight from the time they're young and they never forget a grudge the carrier garage their entire lives. So they're around these other birds that have beaten them looking at him out. You shoot that bird. He is suddenly vulnerable. Even if you're the but they make that decision so fast because this is ingrained this is what structures. They're populations these social hierarchy. Start from day one of hatching and they this is the latter that ladder dictated their entire lives so when that ladder when one of those steps gets broken the guy that's under that's the step below immediately sees that as a sign of weakness and he is going to attack that bird socially above him and win so that he can move up a step and kill it good while he's when they don't really kill each other they just beat the hell out of you never see won't actually get like let's say they're in a fight and gets or whatever a bird gets weakened by something will they ever harass it to the point of killing. Oh yeah well they they will injury each other to the point where they can suffer mortalities from it because then it just compounds against each other they cut each other they if they get injuries other birds packet those injuries. If it's on the head so you kind of have to isolate birds. That are injured. They're in captivity. Because they'll they'll hurt each other guy so when these Tom seat the other there buddy on the ground that's an opportunity to move up in the pecking order..

"What happens when you get your area and it's heavily timber D- or maybe the place that you hunt has a lot of broken topography? That just doesn't lend itself too good vantage point for glossing. This week's podcast. We're going to cover the tactic of still hunting. What that is is slow and deliberate hunting while moving through an area on the ground although the word says still it's a tactic of hunting wild moving? A successful hunt really involves a cluster so many individual tactics if I talk one episode about spot and Stock Hunting. That doesn't mean that even a single given day. That's the only tactic that I use really if I think back to. Most successful hunts a tactic that stands out above. The rest is effective still hunting today. I want to cover the art of still hunting and point out the three main components. Moving looking in stealth. I've taken most species that I've hunted using these tactics. Six includes mule deer black tailed deer white tails elk as well as access deer. Fallow deer red stag and some Alpine species like tar just to name a few. If you can master the art you will give yourself more opportunity and more success over a wide range of species while I have piles all successful stories. I WANNA share the story of the first Columbia Black Tail. I took with my bow. The reason why this story about hunting Columbia black tails is really twofold the first is because the habitat. They live in really lends themselves still hunting tactics and second. I honestly think they're underrated as a big game species he's now a Columbia. Black tail is a deer species. That's pretty much a coastal woodland year. They live on the coast from California Korea up through Oregon and Washington now for say Pope in young or boone and Crockett classification. What separates them from mule deer as opposed to being labeled labeled as a black tail? Anything west of I five in the state of California is considered a black tail. Now black till really like heavily timid force worse now if you're talking up even further north in Oregon and Washington there in some extremely dense fern out temperate rainforests along the coast in California in a lot of the areas it might be more pine forests but they still stick to heavier cover as opposed to the more wide open open. That mule deer prefer because of that hunting. Black tails is more like hunting whitetail than mule deer in some aspects. They have a lot tighter home range. They travel travel in cover more often. And they're extremely reclusive animals a lot of the areas that you hunt might have quite a few dear but actually seeing those deer in daylight hours can be difficult this particular. It was the beginning of the archery season. It was a hot August Day in the California Gornja Beeson. I think temperatures that day were one hundred and three degrees. It almost hurt to breathe now. The terrain rows hunting is mountainous but heavily heavily timber a lot of pine and the openings that were available choked out with man's anita underneath the pine a lot of brush a lot of poison oak a lot of just other man's Nita shrubs within the trees. Now this particular hunt we decided to drive in and something with a buddy. We set up a base camp where we parked and our plan was. We're just going to hike out from our trucks each day and kind of still hunt through the areas through the timber in hopes of first off going a couple days early and scouting it out a little bit and then during the hunt. Maybe just moving along those areas where we'd identified or spotted deer your earlier and just still hunt through those areas hoping to get lucky finds him dear now a couple of days before the season I struck out looking for sign moving moving along the logging roads and bridges and I was actually kind of focusing on the north faces which are a little more open. I really didn't see any deer that day I saw couple does but very minimal. I did however see this one man's Anita Bush just shaking and I snuck up to it got about twenty yards away and I see this head head of a black bear pop up and then go back down with the bear was doing is he was actually knocking the band's Anita Berries off the Bush in laying there on the ground reaching his arms out out and compiling them into this big pile when he got a pretty good sized pile he would then just start eating the pile and knocking more berries off and just eating. He was eating being in the laziest way you could see burying just hitting the berries off laying. They're scooping them up in eating on my actually snuck in pretty close. Got Some really good pictures of the bear. Sure I think that day I saw three bears and to dear so now I decided well their habits for black till they like thicker country. I prefer to hunt. We're open country but I'M GONNA change. Adjust my tactics to now. Focus on the more south facing slopes so opening day I decide to check out the other side of the mountain where route so hiked down and before daylight drop off below camp he logging road and then work around to the south facing slope and I knows a lot more timber. I pick a ridge with a good trail and I'm seeing a lot assign now these deer so reclusive and they live in cover so part of the tactic too is just moving around till I could figure out where these deer living. This game trail was a good sign. Led me into a really brushed out canyon really dense forest so I followed that Finger Ridge up. The wind was coming down at that point so perfect I worked up all the way to this logging looking road hit the logging road decide. Well I'm just going to keep the wind in my face and this logging roads a great way to stay quiet so I started walking. That logging road Out a few miles later I heard something in the brush. I look over and see a few of the bushes moving moving and I can hear something walking around back there so I just sit down and wait and I was just going slow as possible on this trail. Glossing looking listening running glancing moving classing listening going that mile took me the majority of the day. 'cause they're just moving it a really slow pace. I knew that I'd seen enough sign where this was a good spot for the deer to be everything was pointing to you. Dear here sure enough. I caught a glimpse of a buck. Doc just off the trail that I was walking maybe thirty yards away is so thick though. I didn't have a shot so I dropped down and circle the round the direction action. He was feeding in got set up. He had no clue I was there. He kept feeding going through the brush and there was one opening as soon as he took a couple steps steps into the opening already drawn back. When I saw the brush moving he stepped out and just as he stepped out I grunted he stopped? Look my my way but by that point it was too late. The Arrow is on his way hit right through his shoulder and he ran off into the ravine down below. I saw the bucket dropped off into the Canyon and I knew based upon the shot. He wasn't GonNa go far. gave him about fifteen. Twenty minutes started my way down the steep embankment it was Super Super Steep. And as soon as I got to the bottom there he was lying in the ravine. My First Columbia Black Tail. It was awesome buck just about an ears wide or past past years two by two but hunted hard for that deer this year. I got it on the first day of the season but hunted a couple of seasons in the past unsuccessfully. Kelly said that buck was just extremely exciting while still hunting. My kind of seem like you're just walking around and you have to get lucky. It can be extremely effective if done right and there really is an art that involves three main components. The first is moving the second looking in in the third being stealthy. So what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to break it down into those three parts and just give you some tips that I use that helped me be consistent and successful while still hunting so I think the words still instill hunting really throws people off. They think Oh that means. I'm sitting or not moving really really. We should change the name of it but for right now I want to. I kind of dive into what still hunting is. And it's the methodical part of moving slow through through the woods that makes it a technique and tactic that you can use regularly. You're moving and it works great in cover or in areas areas where you can't glass well a lot of hunts there's so much varying terrain and a lot of habitat and a lot of species live in cover but still hunting can also also be done in the open. When you can't see everything at one vantage or one glancing point? I would also go so far as to say that. oftentimes the act of stocking is also still hunting except for the fact that you know where or have a pretty good idea of where the animal is. The you're going after so let's go into the first first aspect moving. The number one thing is the methodical walking. When you're moving the most important thing to remember is you have to keep the wind right so whenever I plan out a still hunt or an area where I'm gonNA move slowly through? I I have to understand which way the wind going and where do I want to hunt it from. It's not necessarily by accident. There might be an area of the mountain where I think this is a bedding area this canyon in this topography. If you can't see from anywhere else. This area holds good habitat so I'm going to go through that good habitat. I'm going to go through that area but I I have to get the wind right. There's been so many times where I've gone into an area and thought okay. This is where I want to get to but the wind changes. I always follow the wind or walk into the wind. Because when you're still hunting most the time the animals that you encounter are going to be in close proximity to you possibly already within bow range. It's great for bow hunting because yeah yeah when you see them you can almost get shot or your within that initial distance to now creep in. But if you have the wind wrong you're gonNA see nothing and you're going to be unsuccessful so you really have to plan it to a certain extent but your plan should be to walk into the wind like gives you the most option for encountering animals also the Ark in your there or blow out before you can see him now. Topography is a key when it comes to planning your still hunt what I like to do is I like to were high traffic areas where I most likely to run into whatever I'm hunting so it's going to be very species based but there's some things that just kind of always ring untrue. A lot of the areas to work ridges betting areas as well as bottoms. If I'm going to walk a mountain it seems like the top. Third Word of a mountain is the most productive. What I mean by? That is if you were to separate the mountain into thirds right were that top of the third line meets before it hits is the top that range just tends to hold more animals than anywhere else on the mountain but it also depends on the species. You're hunting and the time of day. You're hunting most my still hunting if I'M GONNA plan out one hunt se a day where I'm punting mule deer. I'll probably start my day sitting on vantage glasses early in the morning. Now once the day heats up and things are betting if I haven't seen something I'm going to stock that's the time that I'm probably going to get antsy. Start moving around. And I'm going to use that. Those happy feet that I have to be effective by sneaking through bedding areas or areas that I couldn't see from any vantage point a lot of times that might mean a draw where it drops off and has bluffs around it. I'll get into the bottom of that a lot of times or hunt the top of that Ridge or maybe just cruise like the top third third of hillside that I couldn't see from another area. That's covered timber D- where I know animals might be on their feet later because there's more shade in the middle of the day. Also if I'm an area where I mean this happened so many times think about hunt where it might be a full moon at night hot during the day in animals are probably just moving more at night because they have better visibility due to the light of the moon as well as it's cooler so during the day. Where are they going to be? They're going to be in the cover cover..

"Wearing be breathing because if you just bundle up and start hiking you're just going to overheat all right. This next one is from John Kintar. He says first of all huge fan. Second of all I've been watching you on solo hunters and listening to your podcasts. For a couple of months now and I've seen you make some very impressive shots in the field. He's his question comes down to mountain rifles he also said asks what gun scope. I've had the most success with and then he sees is that I generally use a muzzle brake he has a question about the muzzle brakes and whether he should get one and then what type of caliber of rifle. That's a great question and I get gun questions a lot. The number one question I get is what caliber and then what type arrival. So if you want a mountain rifle there's a ton of great lightweight mountain rifles out there. Currently I work with Sako. I'm actually sponsored by Sokha Firearms Finish Firearm Company. They they do make some really good lightweight guns carbon light as well as the Finn like two. That's those are probably to my favorites but they also make what I would consider the best best mid range light rifle which is the Thika T.. Three light for the price and the way that gun can't beat. I've probably recommended that gun to more people people than others in a lot of Solo hunters that I've done. I've shot a lot of Christians in arms. Those are great rifles as well also lightweight. They've got the carbon fiber I do who suggest muzzle brakes on rifle. Now a Lotta People go oh they deemed your yours. Yes here's my opinion. I wish that that are suppressor. Laws in this country were wide open. Like you could just buy them when I go to New Zealand. You can pretty much by suppressor anywhere. You're it's actually encouraged that puts pressure on your rifle because what it does is it axes a muzzle brake taking a kick out of the rifle. But it doesn't blow your eardrums Out and they aren't silenced. It just takes the crack out of the rifle reduces the decibel level a little bit. Now I think most suppressors you probably still. When I'm shooting at the range with I throw on my ear protection but when I'm out in the field with a suppressor just doesn't blast my ears? You'll see in a lot of videos that I do. I always have those earplugs around my neck or put your plugs in before I shoot and is because I have a muzzle brake. You might get one shot off but damaging in your years. I I just know too many guys and I've had it happen where my years will ring for a week and it's not worth your ears ringing for the rest of your life. So yeah I know if you guys that that's happened to you so the reason that I suggest a muzzle brake. I believe that a lot of people over gun themselves. It doesn't doesn't matter how tough you are or how strong your or how manly you are. If you're repeatedly getting sharp kick in the shoulder eventually you're gonNA develop some bad shooting habits and I see this happen a lot especially with young hunters where they might be fifteen sixteen. Whatever and they're just just over gunned in America we tend to over gun really bad I will give a hundred and twenty pound person a three hundred win? Magon agan say this box of shells and go out and shoot what's going to happen is you're GonNa Start Flinching and I see it happen nearly with everybody that shoots large-calibre large-calibre rifle for prolonged period of time and might not happen right away but eventually it will. It's just something that happens in super hard to get away from so I suggest always always airing on the side of less recoil recoil reduction muzzle. Brake is the best way to do that. You're better off having allowed gun. The you can shoot and not develop bad habits with also I love the muzzle brake. Because when I'm on target if I'm by myself the low recoil allows me to oftentimes oftentimes still maintain that animal in my scope as well as reacquire the target extremely quick. Even if you aren't by yourself that is a great to you have. My personal. Favorite caliber is three hundred short. Mag I love it because I can hunt everything from Moose and elk down to you have even taken it to Africa and hunted small steam. Buck which is like a very tiny antelope. It's very versatile. It's also ashort action so that Short action you can get built into later rifle if you're a mountain hunter you're carrying your life all the time. Shaving off. Some weight is huge. Now as far as scope I think one of my favorite scopes is the vortex. It's the Viper series. It's like an. HSL are there's one hunter version of it now brand new. I like having an adjustable turret on my scope. But everybody's different. I like to be able to just dial up to where I'm exactly where that bullets GONNA hit. I would say if you don't do that if you want to. Just keep it simple stupid. I know a lot of guys that just having a Is just a little bit too much. So there's plenty of rifle scopes out there I would say get one with BBC radical ballistic state airlines something that translates to where you're both sitting at different ranges now. A lot of those scopes aren't first focal plane. Meaning it's got to be at a certain magnification for those lines to represent. So you just have to get familiar with whatever scooby Doo. Oh I like having a little bit more magnification on my scope so I'll try to get something like a four to sixteen is a good range of scope that I like. I like that extra bit. Assume because I like to really be able to pick out what I'm shooting at. You know I'd say growing up. The standard was the three nine. I like to jump it up to the sixteen. Yeah I think when you get into the twenty range magnification if you've got more of a tactical type setup that's great. I like higher magnification but I also want to make sure that I have the the low range on it as well because my scope is ninety nine percent of the time set on a low magnification. I only turned up when I need it for this further shots. Because I WANNA make sure I take a more accurate shot now. I'm by myself though. I rarely ever go above nine power because I want to be able to retain the sight picture and see what happens. Happens on that shot. I don't know if that answers the question that got deep but I think some people will be able to pick some stuff out of that all right next question. What's what's your last name? Maximum it totally from Montana. Him in a buddy. You're going on accused your hunt December first opener any advice. For first time coups deer hunters and then they're going to spend a lot of time. Glossing it sounds like he's got a pretty good plan here he really just wants any advice for spot and stocking the coups dear now. The accused used your hunting. Arizona is awesome because there's an over the counter archery tag down there. It's pretty much through December through January. I will say I've hunted. Almost I don't know I don't know if every open unit but I've over the years make it a point to just keep hunting new units down there and I've got some favorites that I keep going back to but I would say say the best advice I could give you is get good glass and find glancing Knob so you you've you'll find a good knob with sunny your back and glass the mountain range I would say most of the deer are gonNA tend to be at the top third of the hill coups year I kind of refer them is a mountain whitetail whereas in Arizona the mule deer at the bottoms in the valleys and the coups deer up on the mountains. It's the exact opposite. We're an Idaho or Montana where the white tails are in the bottom of the mule deer up on the mountains. I like hunting. The mountains of I go with what species live in the mountains. Arizona excused here now. When you're hunting and December it's going to be a a little bit more pre Rut and then when you get into January season? I think it's more main road. I personally prefer to hunt later in January. So if you're looking for an out of state hunt you could jump on that one right now the later in January hunt you can still translate. Allot of just standard white tail tactics or tactics. You do a little a little bit of glossing but also think about these deer running. They're going to be moving more look toward areas. Where Bucks will travel? I like to start out looking being first thing on the ridges finger ridges in the mornings or at the top third in the mountain as thermal changes going to be drifting the wind up will the bucks are going to be cruising looking for. Does so what they're going to be doing is they're going to be moving in places where they can cover a lot of ground. And hopefully catch the scent of a doe that tends to be ridges in the mornings as the thermals arising because they'll catch the wind on either side as well as the top part of the mountain. That's why I say glass. The top of the hill because they're going to be catching the scent of does down below now when it comes to the stocking portion that is the hardest part because as they're reading might get up and run off. So if you've got you guys two guys is preferred leave one guy on point if you can hunt in pairs. You're going to be a lot more successful just because when you go on a stock having somebody watch that animal and know whether they're gone or not is huge but what I like to do is I like to watch the deer. I like to watch to where they bed down. And then I play in my stock from their leave one guy on point if the animal moves or whatever have hand signals worked out like hey that deer just decided to get up and run off and chase it though for no reason or worry still in that position. A lot of accused year hunts stocks. Get blown they get blown by sneaking in and just assuming that they're gone because you don't see him and then they blow outright all righty your feet. They will hold very tight. But I'd say most of the time when I'm stocking cousy or the plan is to come. In from the top it's mountainous most Mount Stocks Fox our best performed sneaking down on top of the animal because they're bedded looking down. If you can get the wind right you'll probably get into position for a shot and then when you get into that position I shot be quiet. Be Patient and make sure that you have good shooting lanes for when they happened to stand up. I think that's the simplest way I could walk you through that and I you know I love cousy or hunting so maybe a little bit later. That's a good topic for actual podcast in the future. If that's something that you guys would like to hear about let me know I mean and also you can always continually send me ideas on. What what you want to hear about? This question comes from Luke. It's about shot placement. I says I wanted wanted to thank you for the glass in tips and tricks advice to glass. Even more in the trees led to my personal best whitetail this.

"Being self reliant and what that means is just having the knowledge being a little bit bushy having the knowledge of if a situation arrive arises how to get out of that situation and also you're going to have less ability to carry a bunch of stuff if you if you got another guy with you you can split up tent in weight and other things so everything in my pack critically we think about and I make sure that everything has multiple uses. You know if I've got a let's see some. I'm trying to think of some stuff that's in my pack. Always I just try to every trip. Take out the things that I didn't use the trip before until it's about bare bones But I try not to double up on anything like some guys. They'll have a multi tool and then a skinning knife than a all this extra stuff you know really cut down the weight of the extra thing you you take. Make sure everything has a purpose like this is what this is for. This is what that's for and and bring doing those kind of view items that makes sense but jumped around a little bit there. But yeah I mean the N.. Reaches a huge. I've I've used that all over the place so I I I don't. I don't go anywhere if I don't have service without it. I clip it to the the shoulder strap of my pack and just leave it there and it's always always there. It's always charged. Its own without yet. And if you're by yourself to like just being self reliant you need a little bit extra like I always have have some duct tape wrapped around my water bottle that's always good for patching yourself up have some knowledge in what's in your first aid kit get goes through your first aid kit and no. It's in there because you know the difference between a bad situation and whatever. I'm talking about the dark side of Solo. Hunting is just no one's there there to help you if you if stuff goes bad but that's everything else is just hunting you know but as far as gear goes you just need something that can get you back safely really. That's the only difference I would say this one came via email. I thought it was interesting. Just one major question I haven't harvested ervices deer or bear yet and my success is only in bird hunting. How do you deal with disappointment in the field not allowed to carry into other hunts right seriously hoping to be successful this year and that's from Air Pearson? Just asking about disappointment and how to deal with it. I thought that was interesting kind of off the wall question. Oh yeah that's there's a huge mental aspect hunting The you know I. I've said it a million times people that I've been guiding or friends that call me. Tell me out hunt. I mean one of the best things you can take on. A hunt is a positive mental attitude and the way that I approach Japan especially really hard. Hunts I've got hunt coming up that I know is just GonNa be grueling so before I go I set my mindset of. I'm here to have a a good time now. You just have to anticipate things are going to go wrong and set your mindset that when those things go wrong how how you deal with them really determines how long how hard because once you start getting down and start. He's getting frustrated. You start making mistakes. You stop thinking clearly really you want to go home and you start carrying that into other hunts. Instead of saying it as I'm unsuccessful. See it as what today learn this trip. Look at it as I'm going out for the experience of the hunt and then take those experiences. Keep your attitude positive and learn every time like it's a learning the experience you go out. You aren't successful. Well what did you do that time that caused you not to be successful should be thankful that you learned that this time you know you should be constantly getting better her and and that should be your mindset. So it's really just a shifting of the way you're thinking of looking at things I know there's so many hunts that I've been on that have just just been especially when I'm by myself grueling. In every day things go wrong. It's just part of it but yeah it's how you react to the things go wrong. Is that something that pushes you forward or is it something. That kind of drags you down and not honestly like your mindset is a decision that you make when you get up every day and that can be taken into daily life decide your attitude. That's why hunting especially the kind of hunting you most the back hunter. Hunting is the most rewarding at least to to me. Because it's it's constant challenge and you're always left with the unit successful. You're always love with something you didn't do right or something could have done better every single time. And that's out there for the challenge. Then you've got the wrong mindset in the first place but I get it. I've had those tough hunter like nothing's going right. Is this ever going to work this. This sucks you just have to Kinda take they will. This is what I learned. This is what I'm GonNa do different and you might do it. Different in. That doesn't work but at least I just I I mean I almost wake up every morning on and thank this frigging awesome. Look where I am. How cool is this like? Be Stout keep the stoke embrace. The challenge intrinsically motivated situation motivate. You like that Here's one from Dan. Dan A lot of people are asking these questions. There's a Lotta people right in asking very specific questions that I don't know that we can answer but this is a good example of what it looks like He said I'm a whitetail hunter from Georgia who has decided on a diy mule. Deer Hunt in Southeast Idaho for twenty twenty one or at least putting in for general tax. Any advice you WANNA throw. My way will be greatly greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work and continued success from Dan yet. Okay I think first off the dry from Georgia. The Idaho's very very long download every podcast. Because that by that time it'll be like fifty two of them. Oh and then suddenly start from the beginning and listen through again on your way out there because I think the whole point of the podcast is to answer those kind of questions. I I hope that when you listen to the tips and the other thing some of them might seem kind of random or maybe not in your wheelhouse but overall what. I'm hoping does this is give you a database of things to think about your out there. Honestly a Lotta. This hunting isn't based on the spot. Don't go oh where should I go. Where did you hunt? I want hunt. Were you like. That doesn't even matter because most the hunts I go on so first time I've ever been there. The place honestly is the least important thing. It's the little tactics of just pick a spot. I don't know how many hunts I've just picked a spot. You could say people could be going. Oh Idaho's going great right now but I mean find any spotlight most hunts. I looked for places. People aren't talking about but you just take the things that I've talked about the a little bits of scouting some things from the stories and just kind of formulate a plan in your head create a picture of what you should be looking for and then just pick random place where it's legal the hunt and you can get a tag and then employees start employing those tactics I mean you know. If you're asking me where should I go. I think you're already loss she asking like what are things that I should know. That are going to make me better and those are all the things that I am talking about in my mind. That will make you better so I think that's going to be the best thing. Yeah I mean I'm like I work on this podcast. I work here meter but I'm a fan of of I mean he's talking about learning. We had a dog and I mean that's like four. Oh four class level elk hunting learning. But you can. You can know even if you're a one guy you can listen to this podcast. Awesome in understand where you need to get to or understand like the movement of an animal. You may not be able to call like remmy but you can understand the movement of an eloquent. What that Alcott's thinking so you can Fast track. You're calling to get you to that next level if you understand those things so that's just one example but there in my opinion are tons of examples of that gets you there all right. You got more. We got one more dialed up here. It's from Matt Middleton. He said I'm new to hunting. And I'm preparing for my first archery elks season here in eastern British Columbia. That's great country over there Having trouble finding hunting partners so it will be Solo. I'm curious you have some tips or pointers to help. Rookie adult onset hundred successful. I've been scouting spotted a few cows but not a lot past rut sign. I'm a little lost. And and what elevations I should really be targeting. I'm in the Columbia Valley region which is very steep and rugged for the most part with quite a bit of open grassy wetlands in the valley. Bottom again great. PODCASTS huge fan. Thanks for the help. And he's Elkana correct. He's elk hunting. He's really I think asking kind of the elevation. They should be hunting a lot of questions but the specific question is. If you're in this situation how do you target elevations or do you target elevations. So I I don't necessarily target elevations but target the type habitat that I'd be looking for so we're talking elk. Sounds like archery you know. Maybe that's September type thing. It doesn't really really matter. The time of year is much I would say look for so elk or Grazers so it's just break it down anytime I'm I'm talking about hunt. I break it down your knowledge of the species so and this can go for anything like. Let's say you've got you're GONNA go mule. You're hunting for the first time. Your best bet is is to understand the animal that you're going after and then once you understand that then understand the type of area you're in and then break it down after the type area in okay. How does this animal interact in this era? So based on my limited knowledge of that region but just based on what he said sounds like. It's probably fairly timber numbered. There's open meadows in in the valleys fairly steep kinda country. So alker alker a hurt animal in their grazer What that means is they prefer grass whereas deer like browse the they'll eat the bushes whereas the grass the Elke the grass? So first thing I'd be looking force feeding areas Now it's Super Timber D- I'd be looking for those maybe north slopes maybe more gentle slope But maybe those valleys maybe. It's not necessarily no ovation thing. So you might have above timberline and then open in the valley and then maybe some little openings in the north slopes in that country so I'd be looking a first for the food then I'd be looking for areas that contain water in that country that is probably water everywhere so that could just be you could almost dismiss that and then cover well. Is it all open or is there some places where they can go from food to water to cover in a short area area focus on those areas that have that elk habitat now. Every area's different. I'd say a lot of like the top third of the mountain though but in your area who knows maybe maybe hunting those meadows way to go good way to check it out be scout some of that. Look for sign. If you don't see any sign in those lower meadows than yeah. The key is maybe get up higher. Also look for some of those benches and some of those finger ridges coming off the main Ridge L. leaving some steep stuff but they liked to bed in less steep stuff so anytime you can find a flat spot or a bench and steep country. Sorry you're gonNA find out there whether it's timber not and using your Topol. Map is a great way to do that. And so yeah that's a good so the answer really is I understand the terrain and Hallo use it. You know you're not picking numbers when you're looking at elevation you're like. Oh the Okapi at eight thousand feet no once you start finding him cow. This is your at a mule. Deer Hunt in his early season is like I was up. I and I saw it no box. Then get to six thousand feet and searching bucks in everywhere I I went. They just happened to be at that innovation that time here. So if you start seeing elk a certain elevation you're probably on the right track. Try to replicate that other places or deer or whatever I I mean it's not a bad theory of okay like this but also really investigate. What else is here that time of year because now if you're hunting that same same area later the will be lowered snow in other things like winter ranges is lower country? More mild country has a lot more north slopes in a lot more grass. That's they need that time of year. So yeah hope that helps good. Well that's all we got. There's there's hundreds of emails here that were reading reading an answering And so I'm sure we'll do more of these one. We yeah definitely and like I say. The Unite Trade responded as many on my instagram. The grammar whatever that I get is I can. I pulled a few those questions from there and then the the remmy at meter dot com is where you're reading ettelaat grammy at the mediator Dot Com. Where those last couple came from? And there's there's many convenient things many that are similar to the ones that.

"finger ridge" Discussed on Cutting The Distance with Remi Warren

"It's hunting season you have a tag in your pocket for a place you've never been before now where do you even start honestly I could probably talk about nearly any hunt I've been on for a story that coincides with this a lot of the honeydew I've never step foot in the area what it comes down to is the time I spend looking over or what I would call each scouting on say my onyx hunt APP WanNa do on this podcast is cover where do you even start but I mean you talk about the basics of math reading understanding Topa map and then understanding how to put all this satellite imagery in the stuff at your hands together while you're at home so when you get out in the field you can immediately become successful a lot of hunt story He's start opening morning or when you're in the field but the truth of the matter is for me most hunting stories should start weeks beforehand and when I'm at my house poring over maps one hunt stands out in particular because it's just so fresh in my mind this season I picked up an pretty much what would he considered an over the counter archery antelope tag you had to put in for it beforehand but everybody that put in drew now having never hunted in this state for this species where do I begin I just started pouring over my onyx map as soon as I got that tag looking over areas every night start going through different units that are in their outlining places that I can hunt until I started to hone in on what I was looking for now it actually even through this area multiple times so I kind of had a a rough idea of places that I wanted to check out spots that look good to me but at this point I had no spot started marking pins in places that I like to check out now by the time opening day rolled around I was ready to start hunting I found my spot I did a little bit of road trip camped out the first afternoon that I got into the unit season actually been open for a couple of weeks but when I got in their march camp spot check that out I get into that campsite looking around on the way in I'm like man I dunno it looks good but I didn't really see any antelope where I was at set up camp and decide to go out for the first evening the first spot that I'd marked pull my Vina's up in here is a group of hello with a decent bucket sweet this is cool all right well mission accomplished now at least found what I'm looking for that's the start honestly spot and stalk antelope hunting with the bow can be extremely difficult so the way that I hunt them is I pretty much stock every buck that I see because at least then I know the more opportunities I have more chance I will get into range and hopefully get shot my wife is actually with me and I was just kind of taking it along she's taking some photos and some videos and other stuff and it was just more of a vacation because we're on our way up to a friend's wedding anyways we thought this would be a sweet hunt to do on the way up so that first day start stocking in on the group of antelope on the way over there unfortunately it's always the ones you don't see that mess it up for you there's a couple of does and some fawns in between the Group of box in the big group does that he'd seen US bumped off and instead of running up the hill they ran straight toward the other animal blew him out ended up chasing those ones for the rest of the day and thought well figured out we're antelope bar be back here first thing in the morning next morning get up in their start glossing first light pick up a different set of antelope with another buck in there do a big stock after they bed unfortunately they're moving it doesn't work out now it's midday it's hot not seen as much so I think I'll pull out my map check another spot that I marked do a big drive through some country they don't really see much but it is the middle of the day that evening the other spots I had marked out sure enough out pops a good buck okay sweet but unfortunately it was while I was moving any just seen us soon as we'd seen him in high tailed it out of there so now I guess call it day to rolls around beside while I'm going to go back to that spot where I saw the big buck last night get in their first thing in the morning spot Abuk try a stock on him unfortunately as I get within thirty yards the one that was closest to me happen to be a doe he was just past the ride of the hill and I couldn't get shot they ran away thing that sucks well keep going and getting up to a high vantage glass thing and seeing that buck move off his does and then bed in a good position stock in and as you know it they spotted me when I was about sixty yards out blew out game over pull out my map beginning okay. I've pretty much covered this country here I know there is anil up here but seemed pretty pretty disturbed at this point so I pick another spot it looked good on the map that I'd marked so far hundred percent on the places that I'd already checked out while I was at home get into that next Canyon and sure enough here's a buck walking right toward me well that doesn't work out but he ended up going down the out in congregating with a group of other bucks perfect I belly crawled down the mountain is probably a half a mile mile of just belly crawling get into position and set up within two hundred yards this group of bucks now they're just chasing each other around and as luck would have it they start moving my direction I put myself in between the little water source that was there and where they were headed and they're moving single file one at a time now just so happens that the best bucks that I'd seen the entire time was in this group all the small buck start filtering pass toward that water big buck is the last one there he stops to rake a Bush right in front of me the drawback shoot make a perfect shot antelope down in an area that I've never hunted war and all the spots that I encountered animals I'd found before even stepped foot in the unit I honestly think the best thing out there right now the Weei have going for us the best new technology for hunting is the ability to E. Scout or scout from home I really believe that the onyx hunt APP is the best way to get started doing that it's really changed the entire game of how I go about thinking about a hunt learning about a hunt or even just first step a new area because that's where I always start so what I wanna do is I'm going to open the APP I think it's just easier if I start that way open the APP and almost just randomly in area a makeup species that I'm hunting and then just go through it right now with you here and that way it's easier for me to kind of go through my process and then give you the best details that I might not even notice that I do but before I do that you I need to really understand Topa maps because that's how I started operating and scouting was just on paper maps it was lines there were no satellite imagery but those lines tell more of a story often than a picture this seems like it wouldn't but what it is doing is those contour lines are telling you preferred habitats of animals and what gives you a really good picture of what that looks like another tool that I use a lot as google earth where I can see things in three d format but I I like to look for certain features in the Tokyo now just in case you're new with map reading there is so much technology out there it's easy to have maps at your hand but you may not understand the old school way of reading it and that's the way that I relate it to everybody is talking certain features in Topa line so we're gonNA talk about a Topa map and then I'll just go through essentially my process for scouting a new area the most basic rundown of a Tokyo just GonNa give it to you right here Topa Map includes lines which are contour lines those help create the picture of what the mountain or topography looks like on a flat surface so contrary lines like on the Onyx apper set forty feet apart then you have your index darker aligns those should have the numbers of the elevations the way that it works as the lines are closer together that represents something steeper because it's over a certain amount of since a rapid gain in elevation further apart lines are something more gradual or flatter when you're looking at the map anything like a line that shape that you see pointing down orig- pointing up is a valley now contra lines never intersect so one line runs the length of that entire elevation Kevin never intersecting other lines when you look at that you'll see things on the map like you'll see the top of mount which would be around circle and then coming down from that you'll have your ridges those who'd be the lines that continue around pointing in almost a U. shape down toward a lower elevation and then inside those ridges you'll have your valley the lines Bendon upward fashion upward pointing valleys that make ahead basin head base because it looks like a head these are things that I really key on her head basins but it depends on what species you're looking for so I'm going to open up my APP right now and I'm just going to give you a quick rundown of the things that I'm looking at ah so let's say let's go for this we're hunting elk. I'm going to grab a random unit Montana and then I'm just going to kind of look and say what I'm doing and what I'm looking for open I'm in Montana randomly scrolling screens lands on a unit. I won't tell you what unique is I'll probably end up giving someone secret spot away but I've got the unit so that's a start now I'm looking for public ground because that's the kind of tag I have I don't have access where I'm going so I'm now going to be having the layers on show me public and private ground. I always start my map at the Toba level okay because what I'm doing is I'm trying to key in on key features really hold animals we think about finding say elk or any animal they only need three key things it doesn't matter if you're hunting antelope sheep whatever over but they need open is their cover because a user eyesight so you Kinda just have to understand the animal a little bit but you have to find the three things that create good habitat Now I'm looking for elk I'm going to find something that probably has food water uncover in a smaller area where I like to start as I like to start looking at rid his finger ridges and head basins so I'll define this for a ridge is just anywhere where we've got that descending elevation on the map a finger Ridge let's say the ridge goes north south from the top of mountain down a finger Ridge would be anything that spurs down off of that explain that here in a little bit because the reason I'm looking for those finger ridges and ridges is what they do is they provide multiple areas for micro habitats things that include food watering cover no matter which way the wind's going or the direction of the sun they have a little bit of everything as well as provide multiple escapes another thing I'm going to look for is what I consider head basins head basins are a great area to really start focusing your search often there'll be water running down the slow so the south slope is the gentle slope it's the one that gets the most son it often has the least amount of timber and often more feed the north face is often more timber D- more shaded which lends to good betting now if you have a head basin that includes both north and south slopes in one micro area what that's doing is creating the habitat in a very small area so late in the season when it's cold they can get son in when it's warm they can get shade they can just choose their bedding and fee eating areas based on the time of year in other things it also has food around and it also probably most likely has water in the bottom so they have everything they need right in this it'll area the other thing it offers it offers multiple options.

"I'm Romy Warren this is cutting the distance got a good base in and background the Sun's GonNa be rising behind us it should just be lit up perfect I think that basin the term this is lit was referring to that base because it just glows so we're sitting there Sun's coming up we start scanning for box for us somebody spot some dose wasn't me but you know what I wasn't looking for 'cause I was looking for bucks while everybody was distracted with the does that they'd spotted off to the left I focused in on a spot that looked bucky to me eh and sure enough turned up two bucks now. I have the option I can stock or I can pass having been the spotter I decided to give John the first crack at it he set the whole thing up I knew that he wanted to buck as bad as anybody's ever wanted to buck John makes stock makes a play we're all sitting there on the knob watching him and Mike Win over to do the stock while they're doing the stock continue go asking John's up getting too close to him takes his shoes off like a true bow hunter would even though a rifle hunting sneaks in within range and shoots the buck pretty much within bow range one buck down while they are cutting that buck up I turn up another buck over on the other side of the range well I decide I can either dock it or pass I might as well keep looking it's the first morning so my buddy Mike's up to bat he sneaks in makes a perfect shot buck down we've got to deer down and it's the day now we're continuing hunting the next day we go to a different knob glasses just mean joe left at this point passing I turn up yet another buck ooh I'm in a good position this is a wider buck a better book but I've already shotted year in the past so wasn't too concerned nobody else had taken accused of your buck at this point yet so I was like God Joe You can take it if you want Joe sneaks in gets set up boom perfect shot third buck down this is on a hunt that has very low success for cousy or spotting or for coming home with a buck because of the time of year now is the next day Joe and I decided to go on a mission I'm looking for a better year we go on a big hike get to the top of the mountain that evening or sitting glossing side by side and there I go again spot the fourth buck of the trip which happens to be the biggest bucks I decided I'm GonNa take it moved down get the rifle setup make the shot buck falls just tagged out out of that entire trip I ended up spotting every buck I now you might think that's a coincidence but I think there's a few tips that I do that allow me spot things before other people and I'm going to share those with you so when I talk about glancing you have to I understand ninety percent of the game animals are really only in about ten percent of good looking country so what's that mean that means that you have to know the places to pick out within that good-looking country that's the where now when we're talking about fast classing or spotting something before someone else this whole tactic can be used when you're by yourself or with other people it's because there are certain times of the day when you need to glass fast think about most game animals we chase they're pretty popular they move in the earliest move in the open the hours of dawn and dusk so what that means is you have to really focus your attention on the places they are elder they're the key spotting things before other people is reading the situation and critically thinking there is what I would consider a foreign Mula to finding animals especially finding animals fast and that's what we're GonNa talk about to outclass the guy next to you you really just have to read the situation and then a gesture glossing based on the wear what in win you gotta break down the critical thinking of where you're glancing in where your efforts should be so you also have to keep in mind you want to target high percentage spots and that's the key while other people might be wasting their time looking over all that country the ninety percent you're gonNA focus on the ten percent based on a database of information you have on places you've seen dear previous times but also the way the glass the places you look I when we talk about Glassy if somebody's going to give you a glancing article or glossing seminar one of the things that they're gonNA throw out there is this idea of gritting now what greeting is I'll just define it real quick is is where you would take your binoculars say on a tripod when you go whatever's in front of you you create like a grid pattern so you go you start at the top and you'll left to right and you cover that new drop down slightly to where you couldn't cover last and then go right to left and then back and you cover the whole mountain now while there is a time and a place glass for that we'll see the mornings in the evening at that time or place or when you're trying to glass faster than the guy next to you that might not be the time in place now there's also this other term Schalken glasses that's where you've got the binoculars up and you're just ping pong around us throwing them here thrown them there and you're hoping that something lands in your view now that's not a very effective way to glass if you're comparing it to grading right because you just kind of hoping to get lucky so what I'm going to tell you is personal secret. I don't even know if I should be giving these secrets out you guys are very lucky you probably won't even this will be the one episode that doesn't get shared yes you're aren't GonNa want studies to know this this information now while there are a lot of different tactics to gritting and really picking apart the country when it comes to what we're talking about here spotting something someone else might tactic I like to call strategic shock glossing so what that is is I'm quickly scanning the high percentage areas where deer or elk or whatever I'm looking for are most likely to be and by doing that I'm covering that ten percent of good country while someone else is looking at over the whole ninety percent of stuff that looks great so let's break it down into a simple strategic way for you to start your approach so let's start the glossing out like this we're going to execute on the knowledge that we have about how animals move where animals prefer to be okay Rena start by looking for the easy animals to find now that seems simple but you can fast scan those areas and a lot of hyper injuries were if something's there you'll see it right away this includes glossing Ridge Lines skylines major openings what you're looking for here is you're able to move fast over these spots in look for the animals that stand out like a sore thumb the one ego Yup should have seen that the one that everybody should see but they're too busy focusing in on other places these areas that you can cover quickly yet high percentage of seeing something because they are not necessarily hiding that well think about first thing in the morning some first places I look when I sit down would be on that skyline because whatever's up their sticks out like a sore thumb you don't have to spend a lot of time on it but you can annually keeps scanning these areas rigid lines another grape travel corridor or bedding area where animals like to be is on finger ridges or other ridges down these are often easier to see as well as like meadows openings mornings and evenings places where deer or elk or other animals would frequent those times day got to think about what an animal's doing mornings and evenings are generally feeding so I hit up those open areas first scanning areas where I'm expecting animals to be yet they're also fairly easy to see in those places now as the day moves on right that's not gonna work all the time so you're going to have to move your as to a closer look and look into areas where the animals will move from to the areas that they're prefer so these are those areas where they're going from feeding now say in the morning we started the day out on the now we're going from this feeding area to now more of a betting type area well think about where animals like to bed they might move to you gotTa -ticipant in playoff animal behavior to start scanning those areas next as a day starts wearing on or scan those or is midday or evening before they come back out feed these would be your betting areas so now logically think about wearing animal likes to bed he's GonNa wanna bed in the shade bright oftentimes he's GonNa WanNa be comfy while he's betting and looking downhill so he's GonNa want the wind at his back he's GonNa Wanna be in the shade and he's going to be wanting to survey what's down below because he thinks that he can see that way better so picture those places that fit that description and start moving your gaze toward those areas another great spot for bedding would be a finger ridge or what that'd be a ridge that comes off of a main ridge the is in is because an animal has a lot of escape routes when they bed safeties number one concern so you've gone from feeding to now focusing your gaze on area is or potential areas where they would be betting now they're going to be moving to those areas so it's a lot higher likelihood that you can pick them up quick while scanning those areas now the days it's midday okay now we can break outer gritting because you're GonNa WanNa take that close in depth look at animals or try to find animals that are headed and the best way the best use of your time the best way to spot something before the guy next to you is to start taking that close look into those eating areas this is when I break out the bigger binoculars or the Tripod to really zoom in and look into the shade look into those areas where they might be added and to effectively cover that now we're slowing down or changing the pace from earlier in the day to now just gritting going left right up down back forth covering an area moving on covering an area moving on the best places to focus would be places that you've seen them bed before or orientate or near places where in that same area whether it's that same exact spot or not look similar because that's how you can identify the ten percent of the country that they like where are they now and then go find a spot that looks just like that somewhere else in the area or the next day look in similar places where he's call them the day before doesn't have to be the same place but just something that has the same hill orientation the same wind direction the same type of shade throughout the day maybe it's the same type of food or an area where there's water look at the places where they are most likely to be simple but you can do it more effective really by targeting and scanning those high-percentage areas using the tactics.

"I had a friend of mine who text me during the break that pointed something out that I should have surely made mention of because I haven't we've had conversations about the taxing the top one percent or the top half percent. Because even if you do that. And I was looking for the numbers just quickly here during the break couldn't find him. The we'll dig them up eventually here. Even if you did that even if you really did the type of structure with progressive taxes all the way up to seventy eight thousand ninety percent, whatever they wanna do. Let's say seventy percent you still wouldn't have enough money to do what they want to talk about. That's the that's the dirty little secret lie. They still have to hit the middle class. So again, Nancy Pelosi's plan having congress give you a tax cut. Maybe it wasn't a whole lot last year her plan to get the country on better footing economically and otherwise is to raise taxes. This is always fascinating to me, how the Democrats get away with this. They can they can be asked time and time again what you're gonna pay more taxes. We got the richer getting off too easy. You got to pay more taxes you have to pay more taxes. Now, then the question is what's the middle class because that definition in the middle class is very different than it was in the nineteen sixties. I wonder if. Alexandria, and Julian Castro and Bernie Sanders and poke honest, if they understand that. But it's effective. It's just like some of the things quite honestly, the Trump does that. Oftentimes are ridiculous and stupid. He says and because they work because people want to dig in and they don't want to do the math through pay attention. They they just wanna feel they want to feel good about what they hear. And that's typically a recipe for disaster. I think exactly what we're experiencing right now. All right. So I saw a story last week the holiday catching up on some things from over the holidays. And I I subscribe to the LA times in in particular like the Sunday paper at a digital subscription. They had a great piece about how paradise California ignored all these warnings. Maybe for decades and became this death tramp through the campfire devastation that occurred a month ago page Saint John helped write this piece for the time. She joins us on camera X this afternoon. Hey page. How are you? I'm great. I'm delighted to be back in the St Louis area. Even if it's just by the airwaves, so we we just spoke briefly before we hit the air. And I had no idea you have Saint Louis connections and roots, right? Yes. My family is inadequate. Ville Illinois grew up there and went to college. At sl. You fill and spent my youth, you know, plowing around St Louis. Well, that's awesome. Well, you probably know camel X then because of that. So we're we're happy to. Have you? This was a very interesting story. And my think a little bit more than disturbing especially for the folks who who live out there because there were a lot of warning signs that paradise could become this deathtrap wasn't there. Oh, there were many. And and this is a catastrophe that was in the longtime making and simply waiting to happen. But talking to people there is a bit like talking to folks in your area about the new Madrid fault. Right. Big catastrophe that we don't really plan for a plan to the small things. But it's the big one. That could happen, right? That it could happen in the arch could fall that's how I remember learning about it thirty years ago. You know, if you if you do get a big shake on that fault line. It's not going to be good because we're not we're certainly not prepared and even the infrastructure in the architecture here, not prepared. Sure. But then we saw with Hurricane Katrina. How many times New Orleans was warned about you know, the possible and potential for flooding, and and those risks were were never met. And that's and that's what happened with the town of paradise that they this is a community built on original high fire zone. They were prepared for small sires that happen every year. But they were not prepared for the wind-borne fire that comes through the canyon is carried aloft on the wind. So they didn't they did not you point out the day. They did not even a plan to evacuate the entire area. At once they never came up with that particular plan, and they couldn't I mean come up with that plan would have meant to have acknowledged that the. The pound could not have been evacuated that it was a death trap. So then it was a question of where you got twenty six thousand people in ten thousand can get out. What are you going to do with the rest? Yeah. Well. Why are coming up with answers because it's not it's not a question that doesn't have an answer. It's just a forces you to sink differently. And now they're talking about sheltering in place. They're talking about community parks that people could get Goto. He and also educating the people who live there that your window to get out and says, I fifteen minutes. A lot of time. There's no doubt. So you go back in in this piece, and you look at a document that was, you know, put together a state state, fire planning document put together back in two thousand five and it warned that paradise could in fact be something that is destroyed by an ember. Firestorm. That's very similar to the one that went through Berkeley and Oakland fourteen years earlier and that killed more than two dozen people. And so this warning amongst others was out there. Yeah. Yeah. These firestorms move the embers can are carried aloft like a miles ahead of the flame front. So they moved ten to sixteen miles in their first three hours, California has seen that time. And again, what was different this time. A town lay in the path and the wording exact word firestorm was in the two thousand five planning document in when it was updated in twenty ten those words were removed all references to canyon wind and firestorms were removed from the document. There are a lot of people to blame. Right. It's not just one group or or or just a couple of different organization. There are a lot of people that should have been on the same page here. And weren't I try to avoid blame after disaster. There's a there's always a quick rush after disaster to to find a blame. And it's more. What lessons are learned because it's human nature. I spoke to Craig Fugate who is our national FEMA director for many years and I've worked with him in Florida on hurricanes and. And he calls it the seven deadly sins of disaster-management that he that we just repeat these mistakes over and over again, I what is failing to plan for the big thing voice, planning for what we're capable of handling not planning for disaster. Which is actually when the what's happening exceeds your ability to respond. You know, one of the things in this video is probably up there, even before this story. But in the LA times story that you helped right? There was a couple of video components one of which took you I'm guessing via drone over this path of destruction. And it's still stunning. I think a lot of people listening right now seen these videos, whether they're watching television, some of the media coverage of this or they've seen it online. And it is just stunning how everything just turned to ashes except for some trees in the tree survived because the firestorm was hitting the houses, it became an urban comfort Gration and in the tree canopy. You know was above the fire in in many senses. But I can't imagine the horror for the people who had to drive through that firestorm to get out. In the traffic's creeping along five miles an hour in their driving for slander tires are melting their cars are catching fire. They're jumping out and running the the nightmare must've said horrific what happens to paradise now, they are rebuilding. I it's a question of how many people will come back in. And and whether it will ever be twenty six thousand people again on that ridge when maybe ten ten thousand people or so if you use traffic simulation software, how these are finger ridges, so you can't simply build more roads, though, terrain too steep there in in order to get out. So there's a question of how many homes could realistically be up there and have a chance. Of of making it out. But I think I think the town will be reborn who goes there's gonna be another question, but pizza. Yeah. There have to be other communities up there on me. I don't know the geography of this part of California. Very well. But are there other communities just like paradise that could be you know, in the path of a big amber bloom wildfire. Many many. Mining town. Every I live in one I've had, you know, contact and calls from from planners in several of these other communities up there, but I would say statewide there are scores of communities like this in in some no they're there in this. Half of destruction others, I think are just blind to the risk. I've said this many times, especially in the aftermath of this fire that I'll take our.

"And then yeah, he's gonna tell us what it is. Rivers are the gutters through which run the ruins of continents. What's your guess that's pretty pretty spot aas, whereas, I know. Yeah, yeah. And he's going to tell us all that sell. I think he was a. He was a fluvial GIO morphology just so he fluvial geo morphology. He hit me. He studied how rivers create landscape retain landscapes. Yeah, you have a good time up there that he has. You can't. Yeah, you can't have the fluvial geo morphology said spent time round lakes rivers. Yeah, was interesting about the glaciers is it's like huge tall packs of ice, but they're filled all the way through with rocks. Yeah, it was like giant rocks. Gross drink to that one all the sediment, the different freezing levels where you guys kind of stopped for. Yeah. Now you can see the accumulations. Yeah, the melt accumulations not finding Yanni. Rivers are the Dr the gutters down which flow the ruins of continents. Nailed it. Snorted nail it. You said through right? I said, okay, compare it again. I said, rivers are the gutters through which flow the ruins of continents, but it's actually down, see dismissed. You saw us swaps through for down. It's pretty good, not bad. So from there. So at that point, we've seen ban a using lambs. Salgar is to cubs. Six rams. Nonleague. Yes. Some number Rams, the me run around explore the other fork that thing and then drive venture made our way day or two later made our way up into southern Rams again, considerable weather delay. Oh yes, right. We got up. Went to another valley and solve the same bashed Rams the Rams kind of drift around and weird ways. Man, they're sorta like in the same area, but they're using different stuff. This time they were down to the bottom of big hanging valley. Got a real good look at them, but we saw him skyline. Yeah, they're hanging on the ridge, but at the same ridge, we initially saw mom, but then eventually just popped over the side. So they're only maybe what quarter half mile from where we'd seen them, but they're just in a different valley now drop down to different places to feed. They like to go up to lay down, lay down on. I don't know, man, it's hard to describe what like to lay down. Ridge tops, ridge tops, even to send finger ridges that? Yeah, in rock piles on ridges. Yeah, or just like the highest like flat spot, you're the one. I think a spot you'd say like like to kind of the perfect spot. We have two rivers come together and like the ridge rises up out of that thing gets like real high in Craig, and he sits up there and he could look down and he can kinda monitor what's going on in the to drainage is below. Yeah, I spent a lot of time looking down valley and laying down valid direction because they know that nothing's come from above the primary predator though for the lambs. One of the primary predators does come from above because one of the primary causes of lamb mortality is golden eagles. Eagles. Yeah, we saw very number golden eagles. Yeah, all in. They're always soaring around those ridge tops. You know, golden eagles grabbed the babies or knock them off and pick the carcass his up.
