Been a long time since I've been on the forum. Archery took over, however still enjoy pulling the boom sticks out and putting meat in the freezer.
I lucked out and snagged a turned in tag for the area I generally hunt, and my boy harvested his second elk this year, with my Dad along to share the experience - Freezer is full.
thanks guys , we had a good hunt . we even got home a few days early . this is S.E. Kansas . we were told by some that antler growth is down this year . they don't know why ,they said there was plenty of rain . maybe to much ??
SE KS, you say. Sounds as if you might have been hunting in the area in which I grew up. Out of curiosity, what were some of the nearby towns, Jim? I know that my natal area has some fine hunting around communities such as Altoona, Neodesha, Chanute and Independence.
Congratulations to 9x57, Powerstroke, Jimbires, and all the others who have posted here. I love seeing all of the happy smiles, the variety of game taken, and the great animals. I love reading the stories. I think that all game taken, whether or not they make P&Y or B&C record books are trophies in the minds of the hunters. Also, I believe that for a lot of us that a successful isn't defined by pulling the trigger but by sharing the outdoor experience with family and good friends. Again, congratulations to all the hunters, whether they pulled the trigger or not.
