Props to a solid elk hunting partner


“Unsuccessful.” That’s how my partners elk drawing results read. In an area with ample tags, he was one of a few who did not draw a bull permit. Kyle is a brilliant pack designer at Mystery Ranch, the man responsible for the Blackjack, the Saddle Peak, the Naya Nuki and the Fuze, among others. I’ve had the privilege of working with him between classes at Montana State.

Despite the lack of a tag, Kyle has devoted himself to following me around in the woods with over twenty pounds of camera and video equipment in an attempt to capture the experience.  Props to a solid elk hunting partner and friend!

Let’s hear about your hunting partner!?

    Great shots; you guys need to upgrade the Ramen selection though!

    Check out Shin Ramyun (, which you can get at Wal-mart. It comes in a round instead of a square so it’s perfect for most campstoves and minimizes crushing. It also has dehydrated mushrooms and stuff; use half the powder pack if you’re not accustomed to a lot of heat.

    Goes great with that PBR. Hahahaha.

    Great shots. The mountain biking one with the dragon fly is some awesome luck!
