John looks a little scary before he puts on his makeup. On an educational note, you can see where they cut the top of the skull away to check the brain for chronic wasting disease. You have to leave your elk in the woods until the test comes back clean and then you can bring it home. I'll never forget when my vertically challenged lab/basset dragged a fresh elk head out of the woods, exposed brains and all...

This stinks! We reserved the pretty campsite and instead we ended up here! This was a rancher/hunter spot somewhere out in BLM land past Doyleville. It was at 9,500 ft and absolutely gorgeous. The stars were brighter up here than any other night on the trip. We sacked in after some pasta and a fire. Bad sleeping, but we expected it on the first night.
