Elk 2018
« on: June 05, 2018, 10:26:26 PM »
OK, so I said that last year would be my last Elk hunt and that I would never hunt Elk again.  My plan at the time was to accompany Marty on his hunt this year.  Well, he did not draw which leaves us with two options.  (1) Not going, or (2) Buying a 2nd season Over the Counter (OTC) Elk tag.  We enjoy our time together so much that option 1 just does not seem to compute.

Remembering back to 1993, when he was 25 years old and I was 50 we experienced a miserably cold snowed out hunt.  At that time we promised to hunt together again when he was 50 and I was 75.  We never realized then that we would make this many hunts together during these past 25 years.  So now it is 25 years later and with option 2 above being our only option, we are going to take it.

We have 4 months to zero in on an OTC hunting unit and to get ready.  fudd-smiley

 Working together and the time hunting together is precious, go for it. We need to do this now when we can. One never knows what is ahead of us. fudd-smiley

   I guess that means getting the bike out and pedaling all over N. Mississippi again for the next few months. Good luck and I hope you two have a great time (and maybe even shoot an elk or two). ;D

I will have the only license, but killing a bull is not the object of the trip.  Spending a couple of weeks together will be our reward.  thumbs-up

Yup, dusting off the bicycle and airing the tires up.  bike_rider   Move over 'cause I am coming through.

Best of luck to you both but I agree the time spent together is priceless.

The old saying we use around here is Old Loggers Never Retire They Just Die that goes for elk hunters also. Have a great time and plan for next year !

One year , hopefully many years from now you'll have to say I can't do it. So in the meantime go. Have a great hunt. 
Someday I would like to take my wife elk hunting.

There's a group of guys here that go to CO every year elk hunting. For at least a couple of them, actually shooting an elk would really spoil the trip. :D
