Finally received the pics from my sister of my nephews 2008 bull. It was finished in August but just received some pics and thought I would share. My nephew took this bull during the 2008 archery season, he was 14 and it was his first elk.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
