That I will have to turn in my draw tag. When I was in the Army, I could never get leave cause gunnery season fell on the same time as elk season......almost a decade of not being able to go elk hunting. Because of the new job and circumstances......I don't have the time nor the financial means.......so I'm gonna have to miss out this year........I'm pretty bummed. And no, going up for a weekend doesn't work.
God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!

    I have a co-worker who looks forward to Elk season every year - he's counting down the days before he and his buds go off to their remote camp for a month. .300 Win is his weapon of choice.

    It's mine as well......some people poo-poo it, say it's not necessary, but I like having that extra oompf at 300 yards........an elk is much bigger than Bambi and our typical range can be a bit longer.

    There's also some family contention about the cabin arraingements, and an alternative area........I just started this new job on my B-day (3 Sep) so I don't have vacation time built up and I need the paychecks and can't afford to take a week off yet.
