Archery / Re: Covering your face
« on: February 03, 2019, 02:32:29 PM »
I use paint, mainly just to cover the brightness of skin. Tried masks but hated them, to hot, cumbersome and never felt like I got my anchor point well.  I also try to wear light weight gloves to cover my hands. 

Since I am on duty today I got in 45 min on the stationary bike then did a little weight lifting.

1.  Carry 5 arrows
2. Originally thats what my quiver held. Now I like that amount for the weight balance
3. 1 of the 5 is a judo point for Grouse.

Hunting Gear / Re: New pack
« on: November 02, 2018, 09:35:39 AM »
Lots of great packs out there. Like mentioned the Exos are popular, stone glacier also.. I wear a Kifaru 22 mag for day hunting and love it. Most comfortable pack I have used. Like the Exo the frame can be used with a wide range of their bags if you wanted options.

Those are some of the higher end brands and most expensive. Probably cant go wrong with any of them.  talk to the companies about getting sized correctly . Makes a diffference. You can look at badlands, mystery ranch also to name a few others. Everyone has a favorite, the best is what works for you and your budget.

Personally I like the way they come out with beetles better. Keeps the skull joints tighter in my opinion. So like someone mentioned above for the $100-$150 it costs to have them done is worth my time 😀

Multiple times. Last year was archery in Washington (had multi season tag so also hit a few days during muzzy season and rifle) then rifle season in oregon. Have done similar on the years I draw oregon elk tags. This year it will more than likely be Archery in both since I can hunt the oregon opener and a couple weeks till Washington opens and if need be the time after Washington closes. Spent 30 days in elk camp last year and if need be hope to do that again this year.

General Elk Hunting / Re: Which game bags are you using for elk?
« on: November 19, 2017, 10:49:43 PM »
I have been using T.A.G bags from quite a few years and like them a lot. Can get 6 in my pack pretty easily. Just ordered a set of Hang Em High game bags to try also. Heard good things about them. what I want it a quality bag that I can get 6 in a small stuff sack and always have enough bags to do an elk.

General Elk Hunting / Re: best elk hunting videos..

Being a Roosevelt hunter it is hard to go wrong with the B&R videos as well as Angry Spike. I love that they both show hunts and not just strictly kills. Great videos from great groups of guys. I enjoy the Steve Chappell videos as well as Primos also.

General Elk Hunting / Re: When did you start shooting a bow?
« on: January 29, 2013, 10:26:44 AM »
I didn't start till I was 40, wish I had started when I was a kid. Love bow hunting as well as just being able to get out nd shoot in the yard as much as I want. My sons both started when they were 3 or 4 (7 and 8 now) and love it. My 8 year old is even a great caller and bugles better than my other hunting partners.

Hunt Planner / Re: state with best ELK hunting for the buck$

Back when I was doing a lot of research on States, I believe that most of the Utah OTC tags were Spike only for most unit.
For the money Colorado is the best place for the money. IMHO
And Wyoming is working on a big price increase for non-res hunters.

what about oregon?

Oregon you are $140 for a license and another $500 for a tag, OTC hunts for Roosevelts are plentiful but tough hunting if you have never hunted them, hell they are tough if you have. OTC hunts for Rocky Mtn elk can be very crowded and depending if it is rifle or archery comes into play. Archery has a lot more access OTC, rifle is all draw for the east side and Oregon's draw odds for Non-res are terrible. Sounds like for Value Colorado is pretty good, I enjoy Montana just because I love the country. I know a lot of guys that have been doing Idaho, not sure of the cost though.
