1 1/2 days to go. Taking lunch now. Last night was one of the most amazing evenings in the woods. Went south when a cow hunter got i between us and the elk but it was still awesome. Lots of details of all the days of the hunt when I'm done.

I think today is the day.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Hi. :hello: My name is Rainier10 and I'm addicted to Huntwa.  :chuckle:

Still getting after it just had to take a break from hiking and catch my breath.

Hope you fill that tag. It's obvious you're giving it everything you got so either way the hunt is a success but good luck this evening. It often happens during the last minute of the last day.

I'm half expecting to see a "I actually arrowed this spike in the first twenty minutes" post lol. Sounds like an awesome hunt can't wait to hear all the details.

You absolutely nailed it.

Late night last night, didn't get out until hours after dark.  At work now trying to get caught up, this hunt took way more than I thought it would.

I will work this weekend to get the entire story posted beginning to end.  What a ride of highs and lows.

Sorry to keep you guys waiting but I have to get some work done first.
