Where the Buffalo Roam
Posted By: Jimbo, 10-16-2009, 08:45 AM

Met up with Daacon [Davey] in Edmonton yesterday and we went to a place called Elk Island. Neverf seen a Elk but we did see some Buffalo. Dave was using his Bigma and these were taken with my Sigma 70-200. Hopefully Dave will post some of his. JIM

Yes indeed the Canadian Tandem hooked up once again to battle nature armed with K20D's and Sigma glass this time .....

Roaming indeed.... oh give me a home.... we tracked these guys for hours, in the deep bush - took a quad about 10 miles in then hiked another 7, finally with the snow getting too deep we put on the snowshoes - got to the river, paddeled another 4 miles in a boat we made out of a hollowed log using branches for paddles.....up hill, against the current, both ways.... And finally........

Here are another few

That's funny, so what your really telling me is that you guys never got out of the rig and you would just turn the car around when it was Jimbo's turn to photograph probably had a fully stocked bar in the back seat and a pizza oven in the trunk............ Sorry we missed it.

Did you guys take everything you own on this expedition? like every where else we went.

God those packs got heavy..... but it was great exercise. To bad I never opened it up once we arrived at our destination.

John / Grant / Scott

Thanks - Grant haven't you sold the business yet ? If I had one to sell , I’ll tell ya ..... work definitely puts a cramp into my activities. Then again without work my activites would be severly limited catch 22

Well both Jim and I had our phones ready to work at a moment’s notice and fortunately for me that moment never came. (Jim took a few calls and to be honest I answered a few emails haha ) The Class 5 rapids are next year later spring I hope ....

Window was down indeed and yeah we even left the vehicle (but did not wonder far or long I mean those Bison were several meters off the road !)

And just so we are clear there were no carbohydrates harmed during the making of these photo's however once the dinner bell rang - well what can I say ... my meal was protein I drank my carbs

So who survived?? I enjoyed viewing them, even though I wasn't invited...

I am glad to see it wasn't during the rut - run for cover!!
