Hello Mr Eaton. I saw this big bug that resembled a cricket but, it's size was approximately 3 times the size of your regular black cricket and very gentle and passive. The entire underside of this bug was a pearl/opaque type of white. The abdomen was yellow and black striped that ran across the back and not down the back. The head was a dark red with approx 1/4 long mandibles/pincers (comparable to a tarantula). The legs were rather long with tiny spines on them, furthermore, they were also the same color yellow as it's back. It was not shy nor afraid. At 1 point it actually sought refuge under my boots. The odd thing is I accidentally flipped it on it's back and it couldn't flip itself back over. After helping him turn back over he slowly meandered away. We were Elk hunting by the Red Desert in Wyoming on Oct 1, 2017 at 0937 a.m. and the temp was 41 F. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Scott C Miller
