The photography section has not received much activity in the past 3 months, so I figured I'd post a thread on a recent trip to Wyoming. I had drawn an antelope tag for a unit just outside Yellowstone National Park and had a wonderful trip.

Great pics, that is some wide open country out there! Don't you just love the fact that you can turn the heat up in your tent when camping like that, and then drive "camp" somewhere else if need be. ;) Glad you had a great trip and a successful hunt...... congrats!

Great Pics Buzz! So, did you sleep in the back of the Suburban the whole week? Also, I didn't see any damage to the vehicle anywhere... :) I know you were originally cursing the security process taking your gun, was the return any smoother?

Buzz,

Have never been to Wyoming except thru your photos. You are an All Around Sportsman my friend.

Thank you.

Not quite. I got a hotel room just long enough to butcher an antelope in the bathroom.

$1.59 in sheet metal screws will work wonders.

I know you were originally cursing the security process taking your gun, was the return any smoother?

TSA at the checked baggage was not problem on the way home. However, TSA entering the secured section was another story. I had my carry-on over-packed due to stuffing an entire frozen antelope in my checked bagged. TSA said they noticed a bullet or knife in my carry-on. Pulled me aside and hand searched my carry-on. Couldn't find anything. Sent it back through the x-ray and asked to me explain what the dark spot was. It was my camping salt and pepper shaker, I could even see the individual pepper flakes. I told them that. They said that there's no way the x-ray would pick that up. Pulled me aside and tore through it all again. They them sent it all back through, item by item. Then came back and said I was fine. Never did say what it was. Asked if I wanted them to reload the pack, or if I wanted to do it myself. I did it.

I really can't complain about it though. They are just doing their job at protecting us.

I'm not sure why they singled me out, I'd even had a shower that morning. Next year, I'm going to show up at the airport after spending 10 days on a mountain without showering. I'm sure they'll rush me on through.

Ha! You're right, maybe rub in some skunk scent just for good measure. I never thought of that before, but what the hey, I'll never see any of those folks again from that plane trip anyway.
