    My first elk tag... Utah

    Congrats and welcome! All the advice above is spot on. If you will only be happy with a mature bull, then you may want to seriously consider hiring a guide. If you are more focused on the experience, especially since this is your first elk hunt, then do all the research you can this summer and...

    Really good podcast. Steve Rinella just had a wolf biologist on too and that was also interesting.

    First DIY Shoulder Mount

    That's some awesome initiative! I do my own mounts too, but I only cover the skull plate with paper mache onto a foam piece, and then cover that with leather before attaching to a plaque. What you are doing is next level!

    Another 300 Magnum

    Really? It seems like the added recoil would be less desirable.

    Bino harness

    I have the Alaska Guide Creations and love it. A tad bulky, but carries everything I want and I like the convenience.

    First time hunter rifle

    .243 and 6.5 CM (despite the hate) will be perfect.

    "Pulling the Rug Out" - Preference/Bonus Point Systems

    Although, if you made OIL species just that, only once in a person's lifetime, then you would solve that problem in a random draw for those species. However, that would never happen for all other species like elk, deer, and antelope.

    Workouts! What are we doing to prepare?

    I have been doing the Spartan program the past couple years and it has been great. I do a dynamic warm-up, HIIT for 45 minutes, strength training for an hour, and finish with 30 minutes of cardio before stretching. I need to start incorporating some ruck sessions on Saturday's too because there...
