That worked well, just got back from a very hot Gran Canaria, had to be done, part of my deal with the wife, take her on hols to somewhere hot for a week of R&R and i get to go back to Montana later this year to try again for an Elk.
It actually wasn't too bad, but my ears pricked up when i heard there was archery and rifle shooting as an activity!
I dropped by for the archery, 15 yard target, and won the competition, i was informed the unhappy German couple had not been unbeaten in 3 months, yes 3 months staying in the same hotel!
Next day rifle shooting, as expected it was with .177 air rifles, same result, i creamed it, unhappy German!
So i thought i would get the wife involved, the only other female was the Germans wife, a quick bit of tuition and i couldn't believe it, my wife beat her, the German threw her scorecard in the bin in disgust, mumbled something and stormed off, are all Germans poor sports?
I did feel a little sorry for the guy as when he was about to take a shot a very lively Italian 'coughed' on purpose which all added to the fun.
And why do they reserve sun beds with towels at dawn when there are plenty to go around?
An eye opener for me!
Now the planning starts, what part of Montana to hunt? I have my eye on area near the Idaho border so i can nip across and try for a Steelhead as that is also on my fishing bucket list.
