Wanted to thank you and the guys on an awesome first big game hunt experience. Being more into bird hunting over the years, I have discovered the appeal of hunting deer and elk. Especially at Soap Mesa, CO, in November. What a treat! The number of animals I saw blew me away. I will not soon forget that first morning out with Rick. Rick is an excellent guide and person. He got me into a great position to take a shot at my first elk. With proper coaching, Rick calmly got me on to a good line, and I took it… at 350 yards. Unbelievable!! Then, if that wasn’t good enough, you took me for a late afternoon, early evening attempt for deer at the lower fields below the mesa’s… what a sight… many 3 and 4 point mule deer. And again with proper coaching… drilled my first muley. So to recap… first elk and first deer on the first day of our hunt… pretty damn good, I’d say. I also appreciate what you guys were able to teach us about the area, geology, plant and animal life, and history. Please send my best to Rick and Jessie. Total pros at this game. Also, thank JoJo for the great camp food. You have a top-notch operation Darrell, and I appreciate your efforts to make all of our hunts successful.
