I feel your pain about the blue lettuse or tag soup. Between me, the wife, and son we have a 6 course meal of tag salad, soup and steak and for dessert tag ice cream. All I can say is there is next year.
early this season when i was mule deer hunting during kansas' early muzzle loader season, i saw few- make that ZERO mule deer.

if i had to pick a spot to hunt elk this year, in this weather, i would lok for a large stand of oak trees with water and dark pine forest nearby. that is the only idea i can muster in conditions this tough.
