Don't know about you but I am heading out in the morning (Sunday) for elk camp 6 hours away. Monday morning I will be hiking up to spike camp, (takes 3 hours and gain 1600 ft. in elevation), set up camp (when you get to camp, make camp), fill the water jug and do a little evening scouting. Wed morn, will be here before we know it. My goal is to kill an bull elk with my Great Plains recurve bow.. Good luck to all. Maybe there will be a story to come. My best, Paul

Best of luck Paul. Looking forward to the story. I'm guessing something just as epic as last year. Might have to hunt more than a day though.

I leave the 21st for Colorado. Hunting til end of the season. Then my Dad has an early season rifle tag that starts on the 1st of October. Will hunt with him til the 4th. Fly home. Then meet him in New Mexico on the 22nd for our rifle elk hunt. Looking forward to a great season.

Best of luck to all. Can't wait to hear all the stories. For now, I'll wait and dream

Thanks guys. 5 am. I woke up 3-4 times during the night. You would think I would have gotten use to this opening day stuff over the years. I guess not! 6 am and ready to bail out and hit the road. All packed and ready. Weighed the pack at 45# but have supplies for 10 days, and then if needed, can hike down to the truck to replenish. Should be a trudge up the mountain but just one foot in front of the other and a few short rest stops. My 80.5 year old bones are prime and ready for this adventure. Yep, one foot in front of the other, one deep breath followed by another. Sort of like life in general. Make the best of it. What we do know for sure is that the sun rises up every morning. My best as always. Paul

From: Ambush

I'd say "good luck" but we all know that it's your drive, determination and love of the hunt that propels you. And your success rate definitely attests to more than just luck. Dead Elk Walking!

I head out Monday (tomorrow) to try and replicate your story from last year.

With 2020 going the way it has. I decided I better not spend the money on an elk tag this year. I’m especially looking forward to hearing from the “privileged” ;) who get to chase them! But I’d really like to see Paul nail a big herd bull with that recurve. It would make my year!

From: badbull
31-Aug-20
Good for you Paul. You are one tough dude that only one near your age can truly appreciate what you do and I certainly do. We are all pulling for you but you are a success by just being there. Best of elk hunting to you! Badbull

How in the world do you get your pack weight down to only 45 pounds. I swear my six days worth of food weighs almost that much:) Good luck Paul.

From: Ucsdryder

Does anybody know if Paul gets inreach messages or checks the weather periodically? I can’t imagine he is using a 4 season tent this early in September. That storm blowing in could get dangerous for guys who backpack in for 10-14 days and can’t check the forecast that far out. If anybody can reach him, give him a heads up just in case.

From: Quinn @work

I hope Paul is safe and WARM out there if he's still on the mountain. I'd imagine he's probably packed out to stay dry and warm, update us all and then he'll head back in to kill his bull if he hasn't already. Good luck Paul!
