I finally got off my butt and went hunting for the first time. The area my friend suggested nearest to me was GMU 29. With last years 30 % success ratio we were optimistic. And for good reason, day 2 of 3rd rifle I bagged a 4x4, and on day 3 one of my pack got his doe. Both pretty good sized by my more experienced hunt buddy reckoning. Alas, he did not get his buck. I was only able to see 2 elk disappearing into some trees, and then magically flying off a cliff according to the print we found. I posted a pic of the last print we saw that day. The rest off the elk here in 29 seem to live on a private open space off Magnolia Road. All 40 of them like to look at the hunters and laugh. Saw lots of sign, but the area is very heavily recreated. Not sure about next years GMU, any advice for 29 and the Forest Ninjas we call Elk would be appreciated.
