Headed out to Belmont, NV with a good friend later this afternoon. He has a cow elk tag, and hopefully the herd is down off of Table Mountain. It can be really tough hunting if there hasn't been enough snow to bring them down into the valleys yet. We hope to have some good pics, stories and meat in a few days ;)

Unfortunately, the hunt was unsuccessful. The elk have not begun herding up in the valleys and are invisible, hidden up in the snowy Pinion pines. We ran across plenty of old tracks, but nothing fresh that we could track. 140 plus miles on the quads in "teens" temps made for some good times and memories. The best part of the trip was running across these petroglyphs out in the middle of absolutely nowhere Nevada. They made my trip. Wish we would have had time to hang around and look for some arrowheads.

Glad you had a good trip. Tough luck not bringing home any meat but those petroglyphs are incredible. What a cool experience.
