    Talking with some friends about going out of state to do some elk hunting for a couple weeks. Cheeper the more go, BUT, the more crowded also. I'm going with some different arrows this year for sure. Haven't been too happy with what I've been using. Got a few blinds left from last year that were good spots so just remodel some. The biggest change will be hunting with my firecat all season since I didn't get it till the last few weeks of the season.

    I know, never saw rack stew on the dinner table...I have that darn talk w/ myself every year. Sometimes I wonder if I can just one time win an argument, even if it has to be with myself.

I love the guy being my brother and all but man I need some meat in the freezer!
    I know exactly how you feel. My older brother is the same way. He's had so many misses and bad hits...ive tried giving him tips on form,release,target panic(actually deer fever),lowering his draw weight,etc. But does he listen? Nooooooooo! I just stopped hunting w him. I couldn't take it anymore.

    The only thing I'll be doing any differnt is hunting elk as a resident, have been hunting them as a non-resident for the last 4 years. In Calif, if I got lucky in the elk drawing, my resident tag would have cost me $5 more than the non-resident over the counter elk tag I've been buying. Gonna be about $40 this year. And a whole lot less gas money.

    My work is likely going to interfere somewhat with bow seasons with a couple of already planned business trips - one in June/July and another in July/August. Then I have trips reports and documents to write and turn in which will take about 2 weeks. That said, it looks like mid-Sep before I'll be "free" enough to spend some time in the woods. Due to these circumstances I decided to pick some game units fairly close (couple of hours drive) so I can bow hunt elk, muley, pronghorn and hopefully bear all in the same region. I have never hunted these units but I'm somewhat familiar with the terrain plus I hope to get at least a couple of scouting trips in this summer.

    And if things work out right I hope to rifle hunt elk with my son in a fairly decent draw unit. He's not into archery so he's applied for a bull tag and I hope to get a leftover cow tag. Even if I don't get a cow tag I'll go so I can help him get his elk.

    I have a ladder stand and AS has a hang on but I think I am going to weld up a few more hang on's. That might help move us around enough.
