Brag all you like. It is a beautiful animal.
I assume you had it mounted, I would.
Oh I'm getting it mounted. No doubt. I've actually been bragging quite a bit. Lets see, Its February and I shot it in October. So thats nearly six months worth of bragging. I think my friends are getting sick of hearing about it. But, I don't care. Elk in the bugle, if you haven't tried it you must.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
