THE WILD BUNCH TESTS THE LATEST GEAR IN THE COLORADO HIGH COUNTRY

Once again, the “Wild Bunch” gathered in the high country of Colorado, near the small town of Maybelle. Some came to hunt, some to get the hell out of the too-many-people urban areas, but all participated in discussing how to postpone the demise of Western civilization in general, and that of our great Republic in particular for the year. As well as evaluate and discuss new gear, work out new small arms, generally hang out and maybe just maybe harvest an elk or two.

WEAPONS OF THE FREEDOM GROUP

THE WILD BUNCH RIDES AGAIN: TAKE TWO, PART I

About a dozen and a half, not all pictured, rough and ready hunters showed up for the annual combination elk camp/test and evaluation session of all kinds of goodies which we all would have to like to have kept, but some we could not afford. This year we hunted a new game management unit, selected by one of our partners in crime who lives in the Craig, Colorado area, hoping that a change of venue would bring us luck, i.e., elk meat in the freezer.
