River, Mountain and Hunt
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:26:39 PM »
Hey guys,




Been a long time since I've been on here. Hope all is well with everyone. I'll try and get some pictures up some time but here are a few trips I've been on lately. Hope you enjoy.


Thanks,

I wondered what happened to you.....now, I know! :canoe:

My brother and I paddled the Buffalo back in the late 70s or early 80s, but it was certainly a different river than you guys encountered.  It was in early August if I remember correctly and we had to start farther downriver than we'd planned due to low water conditions in the upper reaches.  It sure is a pretty river, though......nice gravel bars for camping and beautiful limestone cliffs on some sections.  Which stretch were you guys on? :shrug:

Those are nice videos.  I have fished the Buffalo river in Wyoming but that did not look like Wyoming.  Is it the one in Arkansas or Tennessee? 

I grew up and lived in Colorado for most of my life.  Hiked a lot of the country there and miss it once in awhile.  What mountain is this?

Really good deer in that deer hunt video.

This year we wanted to do the entire 130 from Ponca to Shippers ferry. We had 2 storms roll in so we called it at roughly the 95 mile mark. Beautiful river for sure.

Buffalo river in Arkansas. Awesome river. The mountain was Yale. Had mixed conditions and got of course a few times but a fantastic day to be there!

Am I the only one who can't see the videos?  I tried two different browsers....  :shrug:

Thanks.  I used to fish and float the Arkansas down around Salida.  Saw Yale, Harvard, and Princeton a lot but never went up there.

Looks real good flatlander!   :thumbsup:  I enjoyed them and I have enjoyed checking out your youtube channel a bit.  I bet coming up on that bedded buck was a blast.  Gotta love it!  I don't know why he couldn't have rolled the other way either  :shrug:

This gets me pumped for the upcoming season   :cheers:

Thanks OE!

I can't wait for this fall either. Drew a CO elk tag this year.

I went to the Abbey school in Canon City Co, fished and floated the Arkansas in and around Canon many times, used to jump off a bridge , blacks bridge, over the Arkansas, close by was a hot spring that ran into the river. In the winter the steam that came created a really beautiful scene.
Nice matters

I looked into floating a section of that river but never found much information about it. I may have to looked into a river trip there again!
