The countdown to liftoff

I have about 10 hours to go before heading out.... And I am PUMPED!!!
After having to scuttle my Idaho plans for 3 weeks ago, it's finally time to get back out there with a gun. Helped a buddy out during muzzleloader season, screwed around a little during archery antelope, then guided a youth hunt last weekend, but this is MY time finally. We have 4 Huntmasters and 2 newbies going, with 2 others likely dropping out, as well as a tourist. It was going to be a pretty crowded camp, probably not too bad now. However, we only have cow tags for this hunt, so you know we are going to see some great bulls that we can only stare at.
Been constantly checking the weather, prepping guns and knives and gear, cooked my share of the meals and froze them. The dog knows something is up and is in a tizzy because he doesn't know whether he's coming or not (he is, just don't tell him).
Gonna load the horses and hit the road before 7, or at least thats the plan as it stands now. We were hoping to get today, but my buddy's had too many loose ends to tie up. Oh well, I'm ready, LET'S GO NOW!!!!!
Good luck to anyone else out there this weekend. Stay safe and stay warm. Hope to be back by Wednesday with 6 elk to show off.

Hey Ex I hope everything goes great and you all fill your tags. Be safe and enjoy your hunt.

I will be heading up tommorrow around twelve, camps already setup, I am just taking up the food and water. I too only have a cow tag ( first time hunting elk again since I killed my monster in 2006) and the wife is after her first bull. All total we have five cow tags and six bull tags in camp. Would like to have at least half the tags filled by the end of season.

Good luck and good hunting to all heading out and be safe. Thumbs up
