Hopefully I am getting rid of all the bad luck before hand. I leave in about 5 days for the muzzle loader elk hunt here in NM. Tonight the altenator on the truck went out which is going to cost me about $200 for the altenator and my time putting it in. The brake and battery light came on at the same time in Albuquerque and the headlights seemed dim coming home. Battery is 11.7 volts off and 11.1 running. I also came down with the flu and started running a 101.5 degree temp with a headache that won’t stop. Hacking, coughing, runny nose, and body aches to go with it. Let’s see what else can go wrong.October 13, 2013 at 1:52 pm #6249
What did they used to sing on Hee Haw, if it worn’t for bad luck, wouldn’t have no luck at all. Better site that ML in and clean it real good, double check the breach plug is in and that you have the powder, bullets and primers packed. Maybe this is a “goog” sign, all you have left is good luck. Here is hoping.
Trust I will be reading a story about the great time you had.

Well the daughter and I left late due to the wife adding “honey do’s” so we left about 5 hours later than I wanted. Shred a tire and changed that on a two lane highway about 8:30. The rim was not quite right so had to beat it off the hub with the back of the ax. Got to camp and set up by 11:00 pm, in bed by midnight. Saw plenty of elk but the wind shifted so we never got close enough to get the daughter a shot. Had to bring her home Sunday night so she would not have any unexcused absences on her 4.0 GPA. That is a rant I will get on at a different time. The last day I cow called a bull over a ridge and saw him walking through openings in the trees as he walked towards me without ever giving me a shot. He was ready to come out into an open saddle with only one big juniper tree between us. I was going to get a 50 yard shot at him and then I had to cough. I fought it as long as I could but to no avail. With one hacking cough he turned and walked back the way he came without ever giving me a shot.
Next year he will hopefully be bigger than the 350 class 6X6 he was this year and I get drawn again. It was still fun and a great experience for me and my daughter. Next year the other daughter is old enough so I get to have both of them. I will also remember to take the yote gun as them buggers sang to me three nights in a row about 100 yards from camp.
