A Guide School Student's Journal

DAY 26 - Friday

We are laying over another day in Cow Camp. A couple of us climbed Moose Mountain looking for game to stalk. Wow, it is really a climb!! We saw a couple of moose and a fresh wolf kill. It was a cow elk. We heard the wolves howling last night as we were getting ready for bed. This must have been what the commotion was all about.

On our hike down the mountain, we practiced picking out trees, rocks or other objects and estimating the ranges in terms of rifle ballistics then pacing the distance to see if we were accurate. Distances can be deceptive in the western mountains, and judging distance accurately is crucial for a guide. Rangefinders are sure handy.
