Ive got a full schedule of hunts this year but if you ever need any help just reach out.
   What style of hunting do you like to do? We usually leave a main camp and hunt out of it into areas off the road with an occasional spike camp if the terrain and hunt calls for it. Not a fan of driving roads.

Thanks guys.

I archery hunt. Pack a 7200 kuiu and spike camp for the most part.  Hit a 7-10 day loop and sleep where they bed, if I can find them.  Most of my buddies are whitetail hunters and havent felt the addiction of chasing yet, so cant blame them for not wanting to join.  Im open to landowner tag purchases.  I have to be in NM since I didnt draw this year.  I do have a nice sxs, and plenty of base camp gear I can bring to the table.  I am also 4hrs hrs away from unit 34, so a solo weekend scout trip multiple times before season starts is no big deal for me.  Let me know if anyone wants a tag along and strong back to help out with the group.  Im 34 and stay in decent shape.  Understandable if no interest, as most groups are pretty tight knit. Best of luck to everyone this season.

Im honestly surprised you havent met more people from TX that want to hunt elk. I know a lot of Texas/Oklahoma guys who are always fired up to go out!
Ya, it might be where Im at.  Smack dab in the oil patch, with all kinds of walks of life.  Hard to really reach out and feel comfortable doing so.  I have some coworkers who go, but none of them archery hunt.  Ive only been out here 2yrs, so Im sure something will work out.  Just thought Id see if any groups had an extra spot for a strong back and will to get it done.  Ill keep on my whitetail lease buddies to try to get them to convert!!

You will definitely find some fired up guys around here  :upthumb:
Thanks Dan.

Anyone out there looking for an extra hunting partner for their group?  Probably not, but thought Id ask.  Im 45 min south of the NM border in TX.  Cant seem to get my good ol Texas buddies to get out of their whitetail stands to chase elk.  I chase hard, and am rigged out with all necessary gear.  Ill pay landowner tags, or OTC.  I Just get tired of solo hunts.  I think my pals are scared of the challenge.

Also, what size tipi and stove do you have.  They have a bundle deal on a 8 person with XL stove, but that weight seems to add up.  Im looking for size roomy enough for three people.

I came across that same setup last night while looking.  Seems like the perfect one.  Have you ever been flooded out or get water running in on a bad rain? It looked like the floor of the nest was raised slightly on the sides.  I imagine keeping water out is all on where you set it up.  Thanks for the info!!

General Elk Hunting / Tent with stove
« on: April 23, 2018, 07:16:17 PM »
Has anyone modified a UL tent to support a wood stove in the vestibule section, or any other section for that matter?  I know Kuiu has the mtn refuge that attempted this.  However I havent heard a peep on imagine having success with those tents.  Something about the trekking poles being centered in the floor space seem to leave me wanting more.  Maybe a horizontal stove jack exit through the front or something of that nature.  Im on the fence between a kifaru tipi and UL 3 tent for this reason.  Would like to have enclosed floor tent, but also a stove option if needed.  Thoughts or suggestions?
