Hiker, yes and no. I got one in March on a special hunt Yes http://www.serioushunter.com/adventures/bachelor-canyon.htm ...

But so far nada on this hunt eye roll . The hunt ends mid September, but the tag is also good for any elk, archery equipment, starting tomorrow (just a few hours from now). Starting tomorrow I will probably carry archery equipment for deer or a close elk - but have longer range equipment nearby should an elk show up at longer range. Thumbs up

I will hunt basically around town. These `civilization' elk are HARD!

SH...I liked the story. It got me all excited to hunt. Here's a little story of my own......

Elk are on my mind, I've got cold sweats. My lady thinks I've gone crazy. She just doesn't understand. She always tells me that I need to share my feelings with her. She says I need to open up more.

Just last night we were watching a movie together snuggled up on the couch. Now I'm a pretty thick skinned guy and even if something makes me emotional I can usually hide it but this movie just made me cry. Tears were coming down my face. So as I turned off Primos Truth 9 Big Bulls, my lady told me to talk to her and tell her how I was feeling. She had that soft lady tone and told me what ever it was she would listen while she softly wiped away my tears. Guys you know what I'm talking about, even a hard man can't resist that. I told her how excited I was to chase buglin bulls and muleys. Nearly instantly I got the blank stare. I told her about my elk honey hole and what my strategy was and how I would hunt these critters. I told her about getting so close I could hear the snot dripping out of a rutting bulls nose. I told her about the 3 draws I hunt and how I would hunt them. I opened up to her about my feelings more last night than I had in a long time. Just when I felt like I had shared all my feelings, I thought she would explode in tears and embrace me and we would skip out the door and she'd go right out in the field with me to shoot my bow. Instead she got up and walked away and said, "you're an idiot."

I learned along time ago not to talk about hunting to my wife. Like talking to the wall. That's why we had kids, hopefully they'll listen Big smile
