Sounds like a great day for you and your Dad's memories. He would be proud, I'm sure.
Used to hunt Beaver Rim for Sage Hens. Just me and my old Retreiver. Drove a bit and walked a bit. Usually found them crossing the two track trails while driving. Also used to go up above Lander to Worthen Meadows after work looking for Blue Grouse. Lots of other places in the area. Hope you have time to go and enjoy before Elk Season starts.
All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.
