Any name is fine by me. Looks like we have some guys who live in areas that can really produce some quality animals.

Howler, looks like it's been raining quite a bit in CO, has that affected you any? Are the bulls bugling yet? How are you getting on them? We leave this Sunday for Southern CO and I can't wait. Three shots at three different bulls...wow.

BGHUNTER00, we had some good action on Sunday, also had a couple tid bits of action on Sat. BUT Sunday, we called in 4 bulls. One guy, first time and probably last time I've hunted with him, got to shoot at three different bulls. I never got to release an arrow. On the third bull that we called in, I was planning on shooting, but this other kid loosed an arrow before I was ready. He never killed an elk. Long story short, he needs to practice, or something. He missed a 50 yard shot, then a 35 yard ranged shot, I ranged it for him as I was sitting two yards behind him, then he missed a 25 yard shot!!! Made me sick!!! Only one of the bulls was real vocal, all the others came in silent! My good friend that lives up near Frasier, did all the calling, and he used a lot of cow calls, but also used a broken limb to do some scrapeing on a tree, imitating another bull. The wet weather really healp make it easy to move through the woods quietly. We snuck up on bedded elk three different times, without spooking them.
Looks like some moisture is possible again this weekend in my area, mostly on Friday. Looks like it'll be descently cool, high 30's to low 40's at night and 50's into low 60's during day.
From what we saw and heard last weekend, this weekend should be better, with more vocals being heard. I'm cranked up about this weekend, after last. The kid that missed all those shots won't be with us this weekend, thankfully. Maybe it's my turn to loose an arrow!!
Good luck to ya!!

It's nice having seasons that start in Aug.
I'm pulling out after work to head backup to chase elk again this weekend. I'll be going it alone tomorrow, but willhave 4 or 5 of us for the rest of the weekend. My friends that live up there were out last eve.,and got some action, BUT no shots. It was pretty warm yesterday, but a cool front is moving in, with lows in the upper 30's tonight and in the low 50's tomorrow. That should help crank them up.
Hope the other guys check in soon, or it's off to recruit alternates for us!! Dnag teeJay, in 17 days, I hope to have my elk and antelope tags filled, then I'll start thinking about whitetails! I guess that's better than 6 weeks, ouch!!![8D]

Hey guys, sorry about not checking in sooner. Been busy hanging stands and checking trail cams lately.

Anyway, I am 45 and have been bowhunting for 32 years. Getting off to a late start this year, my first hunting will be in Wisconsin around 9/22. Then on to Ohio starting 9/30. As soon as I can tag and get out of there it is on to PA until 10/22. From 10/22 until 11/16 we will be in Pike county, Illinois.

Good luck to all, and I promise to stop in more often.

Hey Big Country where are you hunting in Wisconsin? I am assuming probably Buffalo County since you are coming from PA.

Nope, not Buffalo county.....but the sad part is, I can`t remember the name of the county! Honest injun![]

I know it is close to Middleton, WI, and I will recall the county as soon as I post this reply.
