Great pics Dan...Looks like you had a good time even though you didn't get an elk.

Welcome kevanddj...make sure you keep us posted on how your season is going.

Blueranger1- What part of Kansas are you going to? That makes 3 of the Darkhorses heading to Kansas this year. Good luck...

Welcome aboard kevanddj!

Hey guys, hope things are going well for everyone... Season just opened here, so my hunt starts now - I'll probably be pretty selective for a while though....

Hey David, I could be passing you on the highway on your last day of the KS hunt :-) I'm heading down to unit 14 Nov 6 - 15.... I wouldn't mind getting your digits so I can see how the rut is progressing down there...

Elk hunt was good, I'm just now starting to come out of my state of depression. I'll try and sum up - many stories, here are a few of them... Elk weren't very vocal until the last 3 days of the hunt - then I was in elk every day. Had a couple of good chances. Had a very nice bull (315ish) at 40 yards behind a cedar and needed him to take about 2 steps to clear. My dad (the virgin cow caller) just stopped calling and after 2 minutes of noice noise he freaked out and blasted out of there. Another close chance at a big herd bull, he was a beast. I dogged him probably 2 miles with a half dozen setups on him when I thought I was getting close... Problem is, some times you just don't know when they are going to turn. I had came to a small opening and was trying to figure out how close he was and all of a sudden he appears behind a cedar at 40-50 yards - just busted the he** out of me... He was an amazing bull - I'd guess 340+....

I did have a shot at a really nice raghorn on the second to last day 265ish, I had been holding for like 2 minutes and wasn't much light. I guessed him at 40 yards and he was at 30.... Hit him high in the shoulder. I looked and looked, couldn't find him. Minimum sign - was able to follow his tracks in the mud (it rained everyday) for a mile.... He'll be fine - but I'm not sure that I will ;-)

All in all, great hunt, just wish I could have closed the deal. It's just frustrating spending all that prep time for the hunt and it came down to one shot and I choked.... This one is going to sting for a while....

Time to shoot some deer I guess

You can try to right click one of our avatars and select "save image as". Save it to your system (should be a GIF file), then try and upload that one....

Just checking in quick to let you know that I am still alive. The weather is cooling down now so it is about time to get things rolling.
