For the last few months I have been stuck in a 10' x 10' room and not able to get out into the wilderness. I know what you are thinking, but no, it was not jail, though it seemed that way at times. I was studying to take the Utah State Bar Exam. It is finally over and I cannot believe that the elk season opens up in three weeks. Unfortunately I will not be able to hit up the hunt on opening weekend but in a week I will be able to get out and scout for three more days before the hunt. I am so excited I have watched some old elk videos and already got my gear together. I bought some new arrows, more broadheads, and have the bow shooting like a dream. It seems like just yesterday I was going to the Hunting Expo and it was February. Since I cannot join the elk contest, as I do not have enough posts, I challenge you all. Me, 2 brothers, and a buddy of mine are all going bow hunting and have a good chance of at least taking down a cow. 2 other brothers of mine, both under 18, drew out for an antlerless tag during the general rifle hunt in a great area so we should have a good opportunity there also. I hope everyone on here has a lot of fun and stays safe. I will keep you posted on the scouting. mmm...good. Tastes like sucess.
