Wow... it looks like there

Wow... it looks like there were a lot of guys that had great success this year. Congrats to everybody!

Numb: I am planning on chasing turks this spring. And like you, I am thinking about doing it with the bow. I said that last year though and ended up bailing on the bow and getting my bird on opening day after backpacking in. I am planning on backpacking in again but I really am going to try and force myself to use the bow. Hopefully...

I was able to take the same

I was able to take the same three as you the last 2 years before this one, but could not manage to get an elk this year. My dad made up for it though as we live in a 2 elk area and he managed to get 2 cows for us. I had one good chance at a goog bull but was only holding a cow tag at the time.

Even without the elk I had a great year. In Wyoming I took 5 doe antelope and 1 buck. A nice mulie buck here at home and a doe to go with it. I took 2 trips to Texas this year and came away with a nice whitetail on one trip and on a earlier trip last March took a few hogs and 2 javelina.

I also managed to slip away for a day while on a family vacation in Florida and take one nice hog down there.

It's not likely I can match this year but I'm going to do my best to try.
