Here we are 4 days out!
« on: August 27, 2017, 10:29:27 AM »
In January of 2017 I was asked if I wanted to hunt Idaho for bull elk.  By now, I am sure you have guessed we are now 4 days out and my head is racing. 
It has been 8 years 8 months and 15 days since I lost my dad in a hunting accident.  He was the one that developed my love for the outdoors, and chasing elk, deer, upland game and waterfowl but this year feels different.  Something inside me knows a dream is playing out in real life.  I have gotta say I have got to be one of the luckiest guys out there in terms of hunting buddies.
I know we all know D-rock, his dad lost his battle to cancer last year during early elk season.  Since we met during late elk season almost 5 years ago I have been lucky enough to have him as a friend, hunting buddy, and quite honestly a brother.  17 days in Idaho chasing elk is going to be an interesting one and I think him and I both feel a little added pressure this year!
In hopes we get it done, here is to Dick and Glenn!  Guide us, for you are the ones that taught us!
A bad day out hunting is better than a good day at work!

Good luck guys, looking forward to your stories when you get back!!

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Looking forward to hearing how this goes.  I wish you both all the best in a memory filled hunt.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I have never hunted in the McCall area, but I have heard there is some great elk around there.  Good luck!

Good luck to you both.  May you make some memories to last a lifetime.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
