I'm having a house built, there's a bun in the oven at home, and we're preparing to move all this fall and winter.

I still want to draw  :chuckle:  I'm in for draws in Idaho and Washington, points for Wyoming.

Most positive post I have seen in awhile   :tup:  :chuckle:

Taunting the Draw Gods

We see more Elk during odd years than we do even years. So Iím sure we will get drawn this year.

That's odd.
Yep it is 😜!Been keeping track since 2000 the year I got drawn for a bull tag. We hunt the same areas every year and the odd years we definitely see a lot more Elk. Looking through pictures of my dad grandpa and uncles the majority of all the Elk shot and killed by our camp were in odd numbered years from the mid 1970ís to current.

Okay, here we go.

 1. I'm building a new house this year so I wont have the time to do any hunting other than around the farm.
 2. This year is looking like a dry one.  Likely to be a lot of fire danger shutdowns of timber land.  Definitely be a bad year to draw anything.
 3. Planning on going to New Zealand next spring so no need to do much hunting this fall.

Okay drawing odds gods; I'm not only double dog daring you to give me anything special this year but I'm also bent over with my pants around my ankles and I'm giving you the biggest "moon" you've every seen.

 :P

Maybe they follow the humpies?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Put in for my Quality Bull tag... which would be in September. Due to recent circumstances I no longer have Vacation until next October. Lets see if that's a big enough taunt!
