    Use what you've got and are confident in. Native Americans used to kill them with a rock tipped stick. YMMV but shot placement gives you some margin.

    But keep mind elk are much bigger than deer...a mountain horse with swords growing out of its head. Soooo...yeah.

    I will be in attendance for as long as i can. I am flexible on when i can be in the unit. Planning on doing some in-person scouting in the coming weekends. I have some areas ive talked to dan about looking in but please let me know if you have any requests/suggestions on spots for me to check out.

    I will be setting up camp near wil’s camp but still hang around with everybody. I went back on my own in 2017 and had a great time. Going to Elk camp 2016 made 2017 possible. For those of that are on the fence you will not find a better opportunity to meet some of the friendliest hunters on the planet.

    I leave in 3 weeks from tomorrow. My broadheads are flying true, my gear is planned out, and I'm mentally ready.

    I still need to get some honey dos done and plan/purchase my food. I have dinners basically done but need to buy lots of oatmeal and snacks for during the day.

    Cant believe I leave in 3 days. This trip has snuck up on me but has also taken forever to get here. All I have left to do is continue to shoot my bow, sharpen broadheads, pack the car, and survive the next 3 days of work. Cant wait to finally meet Bill even though we have have talked on here for a couple years. Anyone that makes it to camp have a good time!
