Great excuse to jump into traditional.

General Elk Hunting / Re: Decoys

Seems like we had 50/50 luck.  Once they would run in, next one would run from it.  Switched to the butt decoy now.  I just thought the standing elk to other elk only means trouble-have you ever seen an elk just stand still for any length of time?  If you do it usually means they are about to bark.  Just think the butt one could at least convey some relaxation, feeding, etc...

That's just what I was thinking ribo!  Gotta time it right so I can use sick leave instead of burning my pto for elk season!

This years should turn out pretty good too.  I got mine a 325 lb chocolate and my daughters first animal both on film with two cameras rolling.  Pretty cool seeing her reaction, I wasn't sure how that one was going to play out.  Bonus footage of a cub coming up my tree too!

Another thing that will help with penetration is to go to a two blade bh.  One of the guys in our group has a similar dl and started shooting two blade stingers.  After seeing the results (penetration, penetration, penetration!) we all use them.

Boom, now that we have basic anatomy covered...don't know about NM quota but they have to allow some leniency if you do your do diligence to keep up on the quota.  Yes gender identification is what you think, leave applicable parts attached. You can keep whatever you like fur for rug, mount, or half mount.  The skull can be bleached or beetled.  Claws for a necklace, buddy put one on his keys.  Lots of options you can adjust do yourself or have others do depending on your budget.

ELK SICARIO- We have all been lied too. Bears are not ungulates and their thoracic cavity sits back farther than what we have all been taught our entire lives.  I thought the same thing and have been told ( by rifle hunters) "you have to take out their shoulder to anchor them" because they are so hard to kill.  I did a lot of searching after hitting a bear right behind the shoulder line half way up on film that was still alive the next day.  Canadian bear guides have clients aim for the middle of the middle and will tell you they loose more bears being hit too far forward than too far back.  My buddy lost a 450 lb monster he shot perfect for an elk...well he now aims back 4-6" from the shoulder.  Three years later and that bear is still alive and well.  We have found bears are actually pretty easy to kill if you hit vitals-shocker I know.  Don't just take my word listen to the bear guys.

Daughter got a black bear.  First big game animal, one shot with a muzzleloader only went 30 yards!

My local library has it.  Worth checking for.

I got one while elk hunting that showed up 20 yards from me. I loved the meat.  Can't remember doing anything fancy with the meat, but it worked whatever I tried.

Found a supper cheap easy to do at home workout doing a tri strength class using sliders (I use my wife's felt furniture movers from Home Depot).  There are a hundred different lunges and push up variations you can do that just use body weight.
