    Hello Everyone. I am going to post a couple videos. We were able to capture a few of the archery kills on video. These are pretty cool to watch.
    Overall, we had two muzzleloaders and the rest were archery hunters. We had a 77% success rate with many first time elk hunters. It was a great season and we are looking forward to 1st Rifle which opens next Saturday. Hopefully these videos work.
    Thanks.

    Great videos and Bulls. How many total Elk hunts do you have at R&R per season (combined bow, ML, and rifle)? Thanks!

    We average 8-10 hunters per Elk hunt. We do 2 Archery Hunts and 3 Rifle Hunts. Muzzleloader is included in one of the Archery Hunts.
    Next year we will be adding a 3rd Archery Hunt. We will take 6 archers for the First Archery Hunt, 4 Muzzles and 4 Archers for the Second Archery Hunt, and 8 Archers for Third Archery Hunt. Then, we will keep the numbers the same for Rifle Seasons (3 Rifle Hunts with 8-10 per hunt).
    Hopefully that answers your question.
    Thanks.

    As an expert bullshitter a conference is right where you belong.

    The flat ground bulls are reserved for those on Medicare. They don't want to have to hang the old farts in with elk if the have a heart attack.

    Going out tomorrow to sight in the rifles. I've got to remember to save one bullet for the hunt. We're leaving next Friday. Three nights in Santa Fe and a couple of nights in Telluride.

    Wondering how their hunts are going thus far......other than Sunday and Today (snow forecasted), the weather has been very warm up there and is projected to be warm the rest of this week. Hopefully the warm weather and full moon don't affect their hunts. With all the animals on that property, probably won't matter. Looking forward to the reports.
