Horse with no Rider 1
It's not really an adventure until something falls apart. Usually it's when things don't come together that would get the greatest stories. And sometimes it's just real simple stuff that makes you go, oh, like us. One hunt in particular, we are hunting and we have five people, rifle, elk camp, five hunters, all rifle hunters, all of them had elk tags and they also had deer tags with them. And we had had a pretty successful hunt. The first few days we're able to fill a few bull tags. And so a couple of hunters decided to convert their hunting trip into more of a drinking around the camp trip. I was in camp at the end of the evening and we were getting dinner going and getting the fire going. And earlier that afternoon, three guys had taken off on horseback to go up a draw a little bit further down the drainage to look for a bull we'd seen. And it was two hunters on horse and then one guide on a horse. They left late afternoon, about four o'clock to go over the evening hunt. We're just sitting around a campfire having fun. And right before dark, here comes three horses up the trail. The only problem is none of them had any riders.
That is a problem. We'll have to find out what happened to them tomorrow.
