The 12-day season for Rocky Mountain Elk began September 16 and lasted until September 27. During August, Shiplet and friends scouted for elk herds and watering sites in the Pondosa, Day, Devil’s Garden, and Burney areas. Because of the drought, a lot of the area is dry.

They headed out on Wednesday, September 16th and hunted Thursday and Friday. If they didn’t succeed in getting an elk in the Pondosa area by Sunday, they planned to try other areas. Saturday Shiplet got lucky.

Asked about his success, Shiplet said, “I’m an old fat guy and I was lucky to lots of good help.”
