Default ELK CAMP NEWS live from camp

Howdy HI all and I hope youare having a great fall!Once again it is time forthe yearly Elk hunt This year if all goes as planned and the equipment makes it up the trail to camp, I will be broadcasting from the Melrose Elk Camp at 10,000,00 fton the west slope ofColorado. I have a new " Insured " laptop LOLand a ATT GSM card to hook into the netso that I canuploadlive or taken video from that day. We will be in camp for fifteen day's so I have added a portable 14 Wat 12 volt solar array to my existing solar set up for camp. this should keep the laptop up and running provided we have some sun.The antenna booster I picked up for my cell phone last year fits the ATT card so I should be able to get asignal in camp " HOPE ". I will report on the weather conditions elk count and huntingcamp news. Should bea lot of fun to watch but I may not get time to do much if we have lots of snow or if we have few Elkon the game pole I will be too busy hunting, Feeding horsesand doing camp work.I will Startposting on the way to Coloradoin five days. if you would like to see the broadcast check my page daily for up dates starting the 14th and airedon my stikcam player.


If all goes well I will get my elk opening day " NEVER HAPPENS LOL "so I can do video and post news

Feel free to stop by Camp

yep we are lucky a few years ago they put a tower some twenty miles from us by the interstate and as long as you areby camp you can get about three bars, but below camp no cell. I remember all too well not having phones in camp about ten years ago I found a hunter who had a heart attack and it took a day just to get help. Now its a call away. so Remember if your in the high country to check and see if you pick up a tower it could be 40 miles away and you still get a good connection with a booster. We get a sat phone for the Wyoming hunts its worth the expense.

There is cell coverage from the Thourofare here in Wyming. It is amazing. most remote spot in the lower 48 and you can call for help if needed, instead of a 12 hour ride.
