The truck is packed and Moe will be here at 4:30 AM. We'll leave here at 5 AM and pick up Mike in Apple Valley and then off to Datil - about an 11 or 12 hour drive. I'm wondering why I am bothering to go to bed... well, besides telling my wife good-bye. ;)

The season starts on Saturday - we'll have a couple of days to see if the hot spots are still hot before opening morning.

Talk to you all in a week or ten days....

Good luck Cali!

Anybody here if they got one yet? I hope so. He'll probably get the #2 straw this year, miss, then the #3 guy will get it. What a story that was last year.

I'm back - I couldn't close the deal on the 340 to 370 class bulls I saw - they did not get that big by being stupid - but I did get a 6x6. Moe "broke his elk cherry" with a nice 5x5 - an offhand shot at 150 yards through the heart with a muzzleloader. The bull jumped like a heart-shot whitetail and ran about 40 yards before piling up.

Pictures and a detailed story later.
