    Veterans Day

    Thank you to all who serve and have served our wonderful country. Thank you.
  2. Bob, from what i understand about the patent my grandpa has, he actually owns the ground and the mineral rights. Not sure of any fees other than property tax. Could be wrong though.
  3. The largest increase, $105, will be applied to the fee foradjudicating a mineral patent application containing more than 10 claims, which will increase from $3,110to $3,215. The fee for adjudicating a patent application containing 10 or fewer claims will increase by $50, from$1,555 to $1,605. The calculations that resulted in the new fees are included in the table below: Good info Skip. But i though you couldn't apply for patented claims anymore? Did they change something?
  4. You guys keep it entertaining. Haha poor Skip.

    Nice bull.

    Haha lots. It is amazing meat. Very lean and tastes great. We raise 2 beef a year on grass hay and it doesn't even come close to the taste of elk or moose.

    Full time prospecting?

    Heck give it a try. As long as you can go back to doing what you were doing or have something to fall back on. I would try it. Its a year, so a lot can happen in that year. Good or bad. Have fun

    Getting crowded out there?

    BLM is a little more laxed than the Forest Circus when it comes to utilizing an old non used 2 track. They usually just go on about their business. But they do raise heck with a person just cruising out through the brush tearing stuff up. The Forest Circus wants you to only use marked trails and roads. But thats here.

    Getting crowded out there?

    Ok, apparently we are talking about 2 different issues here. To move on with what i said above and your response to it. The problem with someone just cutting across the desert or the mountain side is the other people that see those tracks. Sure one set of tracks going into a place off road might not be too bad, but its the 2nd set then the 10th set and so on that follow that first set into a place just to see why someone drove there. Then, there you have it, a new road that was never there before and now your favorite elk canyon or creek you pan in or draw you detect, is littered with trash and diapers and whatever else you can imagine people just throw out. Every hunting season here, there is a new road made into a remote spot. Eventually every drainage and canyon is going to have a set of tire tracks running up into it. Nothing like hiking your ace in 2 plus miles to only come across some side by side barreling through the brush in front of you. And no, im not a fan of the Forest Circus shutting down existing roads. But if i see them giving someone a rash of crap for busting a new road in because they are lazy or just dont care, then yeah im going to smile as i pass.

    Quads, motorcycles and now side by sides. I know a lot of people that need to utilize a side by side but there are the ones that would rather drive that frigging thing everywhere and make new roads because they dont want to walk 100 yards to pick up the deer they just shot from the road. And unfortunately its not just the young doing it anymore. We are seeing middle aged men doing it here that know better. Then you ask them why they are out making new roads and they tell you 'thats why i bought it'. Gets irritating.

    Very true statement all around Bob.

    There are over 25 alpine lakes in this range. The fly fishing for the brookies, cutthroat and browns is absolutely amazing. This is liberty lake. 5.6 mile hike in. Great fishing and one of our favorites to hike to just because its not too far for my wife and little kids to hike, but the general public doesn't really go in that far.

    Its great. Sheep and goats everywhere up there. Beautiful country to wake up to everyday. But like Slim posted, its starting to attract a lot more people.

    This is my backyard. There are trail heads along the whole 80 miles of range. But fortunately for now, they are just walking trails. But the people up here in the spring and summer are unbelievable. Trash gets thrown around and it just gets irritating. Beautiful mountain range though.
