I add my thank you with the others for your service and dedication to our country. We take the sounds you were able to enjoy this morning for granted after awhile. We enjoy them for sure but they must have been even better for you after haveing been gone for so long.
Good luck on all your hunts this year, I wish you the best.
Thanks to all of you! You folks and this site sure helped while I was gone as talking hunting and reading the stories helped take my mind off the day to day stuff over there. As for the elk bugling, I could not have written a better home coming after seeing family. It was a real treat to hear them again. Looking forward to scouting this weekend and for sure getting out 3rd season. Thanks for the support of the troops, take care and good hunting to all.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
