Great pictures.What knife did you decide on? 6 or LS ?
The pics in this thread are gorgeous!
Hawkeye, I like my “6” for clearing some of the elk trails that are growing closed. Big bulls stop using trails that they have to fight through. The Esee 6 is a good chopper for me and easily cuts thru 2 to 4 inch soft pine and pinyon limbs. The LS is my most favorite general purpose knife and I carry it the most, for me I’d does everything I need to do well enough. Both are really great knives.
Thank you BRT!
Was wondering what it was that you used them for the most.But you answer that. Do you also use them to gut and clean Elk and deer? Thanks for your reply. Hawkeye!
Hiked into the canyons north of the cabin, it's been a very poor monsoon season here with very little rain. Dry and unseasonably hot.
Started hiking at 0600 and the temperature was 76 degrees.
Located some fresh bear activity along the trail.
Pulling a log apart looking for insects.
After hiking about 5 miles and made it to a mesa rim. Glassing into the surrounding canyons I located an elk
shed laying in a opening.
Horn is almost center of photo.
Looking at my remaining water supply and temperature already in the high 80's I decided to wait for fall before I go after that horn.
Some photos on the way home.
Returning on the same trail I came in on I found a bear track on top of my boot track, very close to the log that was pulled apart.
Arrived back to the cabin and the temperature in the shade was 92 degrees, pretty warm for 8000 ft. Elevation!
Nice pictures thanks for posting.
Headed into the canyon's to look for late season elk sheds. I started out with a beautiful sunrise.
Going through the rock formations. I refer to this formation as helmet rock ridge ( simple mind yields simple thoughts).
More rock formations:
Cleared the canyon's and started to look for elk sheds. I found where my old bear had recently traveled through.
Found four horn, all hard white's.
Heading home, a great day in the woods!
Always enjoy your posts.
Thanks for sharing.
