Archery vs Muzzy vs Modern
« on: June 12, 2014, 08:10:57 AM »
Hey all,

Now that results are out and I see that I did not draw any elk permits, I will be using my multiseason elk tag to its fullest today. The last few years I have been strictly archery hunting, and the years before that I was primarily rifle hunting elk. This will be my first year muzzy hunting as well. I am going to hunt all three seasons, but only have so much vacation I can use, with my wedding taking up a good portion of it this summer. I don't see myself using much of it for rifle season.

I know a lot of it will depend on the weather, but should I focus most of my time sticking with archery (where it seems to be a little early for the rut where I hunt) or have most found that the SE bulls have been rutting during muzzy?

Not asking for any advice, just asking a hypothetical, "what would you do question" so I can try to get my vacation days requested sooner rather than later.

Thanks for all and any responses.

And a big congrats to all of those who drew permits!
