    Thoughts on Gruden?

    I'm guessing he's tired of living in a fishbowl. Football is a game of men and sometimes men say things that are insensitive. That is how it is. I am glad Gruden had the balls to say, "I'm out!" I don't agree with what he said....back in 2010-2011, but can't people change? Aren't second chances...

    I will be looking into hunting elk for the first time in WY possibly next year or the year after. I have 3 points as of now. I have looked a bit on the draw odds, etc and see that I have a shot at a 98 tag among some others. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to talk to me about other...

    My wife and kids bought me a new Mathews V3 27 for my bday. Normally, I would like to be the purchaser of this type of equipment but she wanted to surprise me for my Bday. Shes a giver. :) I have been out of the archery game for about 10 years now but mentioned to her many months ago that I want...

    Torn Meniscus....?

    All of a sudden about a week and a half ago, my left knee felt swollen and I could feel a "ticking" sensation in it. When I would do a squat, I could really feel the fluid in there and it felt a bit week while coming back up. I am still running and hiking with no issues. It is more or less just...

    I am new to spring bear hunting...never hunted for bears. I am going to start researching it so that I can extend my hunting season and give me something to look forward to in the spring. I'll check out NM, AZ, NV, UT as they are the closest states to Cali. I was doing some reading here and see...

    Crickets....

    This just happened....my college student daughter is home for the summer. I am out in the living room and she comes out of her room and is pissed. She asks if I put something outside of her window that makes a noise. I told her no? That is strange. She went on to say it was probably the...

    Hot and Spicy Backstrap...

    My Dad called me the other day and mentioned he had found some backstrap that he had vacuum sealed from Oct 2020. We realized he had MY Pine Valley deer meat from last season. I grabbed most of it...left a package for him of course and put it in my fridge planning on cooking it in the next day...

    Unit 70 elk- Co

    I was looking to burn my 2 elk points next year and was doing some research on drawable areas. I have never hunted 70...never been on the unit. From what I can see, they added elk hunts this year to that unit. Those that have hunted deer there, are there many elk? I was looking at the muzzy hunt...

    Unit 33 Place to stay...

    My wife, bro in law and his 2 kids are doing a hunt in 33 this year.....3rd season. It seems as all the airbnb's are gone in that area already which was a bit surprising. Does anyone have a cabin that they'd be interested in renting out anywhere close to Rifle or New Castle? Probably a long shot...

    OTC elk unit 33 area...

    I may be hunting OTC elk in 33 and/or its surrounding units. I have spent time in 22 but during my 3rd season deer hunt did not see any elk. I had friends hunting OTC elk the same time I was there and they had killed 2 elk out of their party. I've hunted 33 3rd years ago and really like the area...

    Vortex spotter...Viper or Razor

    Looking to use my stimulus on a large spotter. I currently have the smaller Razor but after my elk hunt last year, it is obvious I need a larger, reach out farther spotter. Is there much difference in quality of glass between the Razor and Viper? The cost is only $500....is the quality in the...

    New to the game.....

    I am a new elk hunter. My son has been on 2 cow elk hunts which I went on with him. I went on my first elk hunt last season and was successful killing a bull elk. I am definitely hooked. I am asking for some simple knowledge to help me with draws and such. Lots of guys prefer early (archery)...

    WY elk newbie...

    I just started researching WY elk and I currently have 3 NR points. I am thinking of applying for a tag in 2023. Is there a chance I'd be able to draw a general type 1 or 2 tag with that few points? Looking at the tags allotted for units, it is deceiving. Looks like there are not many tags given...

    Anyone fish Lake Tahoe?

    OTC Co elk

    I know the success rate on OTC elk is very low...less than 10% if I am not mistaken. My guess is that the hardcore hunters who are willing to hike in a few miles will obviously find more elk than the road hunters. Anyone here hunt the same area year after year and are successful year after year...

    Monroe Late Bull...

    I was able to fill my tag with this elk on the fourth day of the hunt after passing on several other smaller bulls. This bull was 1 of 3 pretty good bulls in a group of about 150 that we had seen the first night of the season but weren’t able to get a shot at any of them. Without the help of my...

    Just bought OnX Maps for my 2 Utah hunts this year. What do you feel is the best use for this? Knowing where private property is? Figuring out the best way to get into the area you want to hunt? Using its waypoints? I am making sure that I utilize it to the best of my abilities and its uses. It...

    Rangefinders?

    I am in the market for a new rangefinder. Do you prefer a 600 yard rangefinder or one that ranges out to 1000 yards? Are the newer rangefinders pretty accurate and can you even hold on an animal much past 350 anyway...or are you just ranging the ground closest to your target anyway? I have...

    Late Season Monroe Elk Help

    Hi All- I drew the late season rifle tag. I'll be there a few days early to scout. I am hoping to get some info from any of the archery or ML hunters who have tags. I have heard that the bulls sometimes will pull away from the cows during the late season. It would be great if anyone has an idea...

    Monroe elk...late rifle

    I would like to connect with any elk hunters who have tags on any earlier hunts in this unit. I am stoked to have drawn this hunt. It'll be my first bull elk tag ever drawn. After the earlier hunts, I am hoping to talk with fellow hunters about where they found elk because that would really help...
