Thanks Scoot.  If you could do some pre-season scouting and lay some GPS coordinates on me, that'd be great!  Oh, then come help us pack some meat, that'd be great too!

 

Just kidding of course but thanks for the offer, I may have to pick your brain some.

Funny you mention that- I leave for AZ tomorrow morning at 5 AM!  Unless your elk is on a golf course I won't be much help though...

 

Seriously,  I probably can be of help to you if you are in need of equipment info or calling info.

The best way I've found to bust my butt into shape is to head down to Minnehaha falls and hike the stairs.  There are several sets of stairs but 2 in particular are really butt busters. Put a pack on your back and hike them as much as you can and you'll be as ready as you can be to pack out an elk.

10/4!  You guys heading any where this year? We didn’t get drawn for Montana so my son and I are headed to Idaho Oct 11 for a rifle hunt. I’m hoping I can sway my group into an archery hunt out west next year!!

Thanks for posting Don.  I was wondering when you'd get around to it!  Sounds like you had a couple close calls, which is about what I have come to expect with out of state elk hunts with limited time.  Joe sure is lucky...

Great stuff, Don!  I can totally relate to going 1/2 with my buddy being the one to tag out-- exactly what happened to me in NM this year.  Sounds like you had a good experience overall.  Elk hunting is tough!  It's often an exercise in major frustration- over, and over, and over!  But, all it takes is once to work out and when it does, it's the best!

Congrats on a good trip and thanks very much for taking us along for the ride.  I'll be calling you to pester you soon!

    • Creating sweets before the holiday season with the family is my favorite kind of a get together. Those looks delicious, I feel like kids and young at heart will love it. 
    • And they still come out with that product! 🙃
    • I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevity of tires
    • So..............when do pitcher's and catcher's report to spring training?
    • Wine, rum and Woodford 🙄
    • Do they drink Wine while cooking like our ladies?  😋
    • I just put on a set of Falken Wildpeak ATW3 before hunting season and have been impressed so far. The only problem is I don’t have anything to compare against because they replaced the factory tires on my pickup that were 6 years old. I wanted a little more aggressive tire than the factory tires and these seemed to fit that description. I only put about 7-8k miles on my pickup a year so it’s going to take a while to find out for sure how they are in the wrong run but I am happy so far and the price on these tires was great. 
    • I guarantee they are all hand made. 50 lbs of dipping chocolate 10 lbs of white chocolate, mass quantities of sugar, coconut and fondant. Then 13 women put in 8 hours of mixing, rolling, dipping and trimming. Each family has some of the centers mixed ahead of time because they need to cool and set overnight.
    • check out the smith lift it is expensive but they work.
    • Thanks again.  Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong.  She has never accepted advice from me.  Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her.  No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
