I have hesitated starting this thread because I didnít want to jinx the draw results and with my luck I would have done it, and I still could. But with the draw date now 2 weeks away I am feeling confidant.
I have put in for Elk hunts for a long time now and this year it is coming, I am going to DRAW!!! I hope. Back in February I was feeling so confident that at the Expo I didnít put in for an elk tag because I knew I was going to draw mine in the regular draw. I thought I might draw an antelope or deer tag at the expo and thus have 2 tags and have a really great season. My son (12 years old and hunted with me last year for the first time) was excited and hoping he would draw a turkey or bear tag and make our hunting season even better. Well as luck would have it neither of us drew.
I put in for the Wasatch Archery Elk tag and my son put in for a Youth Elk Hunt. We could still have an incredible season. I guess we will just have to wait for a couple of weeks to see how good it actually is going to be. Actually I will be watching my credit card pretty close these next couple weeks because I know it will be hitting the cards pretty soon. In fact I paid off my balance last week just so I could be sure that everything is good to go and there would be no problems for my tag to go through.
A few weeks ago my boys (my 12 year old and the other 10) started working out a little in the mornings before work and school. Of course me being human and naturally lazy havenít done as well as I could of with this. But of course if (WHEN) the tag is mine that laziness will completely disappear. Workouts will start in full. I will have two and a half months to restore my fitness level to prime life.
This is the start of my hunt thatís ďBeen a Long Time ComingĒ
