Re: Opening day
had a guy ask me what kept me motivated to hunt during elk season last year when I told him I knew I was pretty much just on a nature walk. It was late in the season and all the animals were gone over to the res area where us Kemosabe's can't hunt. (I mean gone, I was covering 10-15 miles of high country prime time elk habitat and would cut less than 5 sets of tracks, many days old)
I told him, "ya can't win, unless ya play!"
one day a half blind and retarded legal elk will stumble accross my sights, next year it's off to the other side of the state where I can shoot the ones without horns.
