“It’s rained every day since July 4!” stated Laurie Hancock.
Not exactly the words I wanted to hear. Hunting in the rain is never a good experience but you can’t do anything about the weather. Plus we’s driven 1,200 miles and weren’t going to let a little rain stop us from Colorado elk and the Rocky Mountains. This was August 24, 2006 and my son Serge was on a Colorado archery elk hunt. I was the driving, hunting and camping “helper”. Later in the day, Randy Hancock took us to the local archery range where we threw some arrows at the many fake “critters” spread around the course. The day ended with grocery shopping, rounding up Randy’s horses, and test packing “panniers.” But I guess I’m getting a little ahead myself…….
