After only 7 years, I finally draw out on San Juan Utah Bull

I got the email with the draw results and just couldn't believe it. I am so excited about this hunt.
I lay awake in bed at night and think about it. I started rounding up all my empty brass. (3 of em. 2 for practice shots and 1 kill shot last year for Mule Deer)
Which bullets, which boots? Should I wear my favorite hat, or just get a new lucky hat?
Ha ha, I love thinking about all the things it takes to hunt elk. I am so glad its almost 6 months away. I am going to torture myself everyday just thinking about it.

Good luck, there are some great bulls down on Elk Ridge. I was turkey hunting down there 4 years ago and saw a couple that already had 3 foot antlers with eye guards on them. I would of loved to seen them in the fall. Now you get to have all the fun of scouting them and finding the right place to sit on the opening. I drew a Book Cliff bull tag back in 2001 and the funnest part was the scouting. My hunt was over at 7:05 on opening morning with a 380 bull on the ground.

I am sssssssssooooooooooooooooooooooooo jealous!!! I visit that unit every year for my anual "photography" hunt. I put in every year and every year I get that unsuccessful letter. Last year I had a cow hunt down there and called in 390 class bull into 10 yards. I wish shaking like a leaf and wishing so bad I had a tag in my pocket.

Good luck! Sounds like you know your way around but if you need any pointers I'd be more than happy to share.
