From the looks of your trophy room, I would say your underestimating your home state....
Wanted to ask you a question too about 62. Any bear there? If I hunt that unit next fall, should I buy a bear tag just in case?
Lots of bears in the unit ! LOTS !!!! As you know my brother took his first bear this year with his bow along with one other guy in his camp (about the same size). Along with many encounters from the rest of the camp.
As for myself I just did not pull the trigger this year as I counld not get one of the bigger bears in my scope , but thats hunting.
I've seen at least one elk this size in Colorado -- We (multiple people) chased him for 4 years with multiple sightings. I missed out on a shot by about 5 minutes -- right place to intercept him, he just went a different direction. They exist, but they are ghosts.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
