  1. Awesome! Still working on bagging mine in 27.

  2. Having 2 hunts in a year sure puts a lot of strain on scouting time. My brain is focused on deer. My hunt starts on Nov. 6. We pinned down a general area last weekend and are returning this weekend to walk some areas to get a better lay of the land. Unfortunately it take 3 plus hours to get there so not much of a quick trip over some pretty rough roads.

    But...elk is still in the back of my mind and am looking forward to the challenge of a late season bull hunt. Luckily I will have just enough time to make a quick scouting trip after deer and before elk season to check which area are holding elk.

  3. Kelly, I drew deer and elk in unit 9 one year. At that time one ended (deer) on Thursday and elk (bull) started on Friday. I had the unit scouted well. Of course during the deer season I saw nothing but lotsa elk, including a 350+ bull and does. When elk started, nothing but cow elk and herded up does and bucks starting to rut. Good luck my friend.

  4. At least you didn't have to move camp. My hunts will be quite different. Deer is in 41. Might be a hot one and for sure dry. Elk is in 22N and might be cold. Could be wet. Hoping we don't have to deal with a big snow storm like those that had the late hunt last year did. They will both be fun hunts. I'm excited for deer. Especially every time that I see this buck that was killed in one of the desert units.

    We have been married for 55 years. 54 years ago I shot a really nice Kansas whitetail buck. I took my new wife's 8X10 photo that was on the bedroom wall down and replaced it with the buck's antlers. Now in all fairness, I put her photo on the night stand next to my side of the bed. Does not matter! I still hear about that 54 years later. Do not do that!!
     
  8. Got back last week from 3½ weeks of camping in the White Mtns. Filled my tag on my 1st ever turkey hunt but struck out on my 1st elk hunt. In 3 weeks I'll be in 36B trying to bring home a deer. It will be my 5th year of trying.
    Technical problems kept me from uploading pics last month so I'll try again now.
