Did I miss it? Did Jordan make it out of the elk woods? Did he kill something?
Judgin' from the link I'm guessin' the elk are ahead on points
My chance came just after 4pm on opening afternoon. And as usual, I stood there with my bow in hand but not drawn with my jaw down on the ground looking at the 6 pt 35 yards away with his head behind a tree.....instead of drawing and looking for the shot. C'est la vie. I am who I am...... Luckily my super persistent buddy Andy scored his bull on the last day in thick fog after hunting nearly every day of archery season. I think I enjoy finding and taking pics of elk more than actually killing them........LOL

remarks. The way my past several elk seasons have gone, I might as well take up needlepoint.
LOLOLOL! Great one Hoot!
I am at peace with it. The hard part this season was losing my drive, my passion for hunting. I never felt like any season was a success or failure based upon killing an elk or anything else......but this year I truly didn't give a damn about killing an elk. I lost that voice in the back of my head saying you have got to get out there and go, go, go, go. I still hunted at least 7 days. But it was a chore not a joy.
In any case, I still love this bar, all its characters, and appreciate the support and even the haters to some extent. It is a great community and I have not lost my joy in participating with ya'll!
Cheers (as I sip my tag soup)
Jordan you’ve always been a good sport which is why I posted that, if you were a different guy I wouldn’t have…
I’m definitely not in the great Bowhunter category, but I can say that I’ve filled at least 1 archery tag a year for the last 5 and it wasn’t until I said to myself, (and believed it) “I’m not coming off the mountain without my bull/buck/etc. come hell or high water I am filling my tag” that I began to see some success. You’ll get it done when you decide that you’re going to get it done!
