Season opens next week, I already have my herd picked out and will stick an arrow in the first elk that get's within 25 yards of me,be it a cow, calf or a bull. No elk last year means I must score this year.
I will be shooting my Hoyt Raptor, 1997 model, dual cams. Set at 68 lbs , 28 inch draw length , shooting Eastons Evolution carbon 340 arrow with Muzzy 115 grain broadheads.

DKO,we are leaving on Wed. the 29th will come home Sunday Sept. 9th.
Are you flying home on the 16th ?
Let me know when you will be in Boise ,Im thinking you will be here on the 7th then go to your hunting spot? Then be back in Boise to leave on what the 15th or 16th? I would like the chance to meet you while your here.
It looks like the last weekend is the only time. Im not sure where we will be hunting on the 15th & 16th .
All depends on IF we have any luck the week before

If I dont get the chance to catch with you ,have a great time and best of luck to you.
I know you will have fun with moosie,but be warned your sides with hurt from laughing so hard. Hope you get to meet Wylee & Breezy both real nice.

Viperess,that sounds fun. Did you just get the cross bow? How hard is it to pull back and set (or what ever you call that LOL)? Good luck and have fun.
Do all your boys have bow's?
