    300 RUM Rifle Suggestions

    Hell yes! That’s my exact next gun with a Leupold Mark 5HD 7-36x56. Beautiful elk gun. Of course I have an area with the spots to sit to put it to good use. You don’t just carry that around like a blind squirrel looking for a random nut. Lol

    WY Saratoga vs Wheatland

    I have friends in Wheatland. I rarely visit because there’s just nothing to do around there. It’s a really boring area. Unless you’re really into flying kites! Lol

    I drew region G with 0 points and don't know anything

    The tops of the mountains you’re seeing… those are not the tops! 😳

    Sidearm or Not?

    Nope. Those suckers are heavy! If I did my ammo would be bird shot for grouse.

    Task force? They didn’t decide anything. They lost the battle they started. I’m sure they’re not happy and I bet we haven’t heard the last from them.

    2022 East coast guys heading west

    2 will be enough to do your part. 3 of us will punch 3 tags to help maintain the Pa average. I’ve done my share of outfitting and guiding. My clients from Pa were always great hunters. Same goes for Michigan. I wouldn’t want to be a bull bedded down on a mountain and see a bunch of...

    I was thinking the same thing. Lots of Pa hunters here. The 10% who do 90% of the killing right!

    Archery elk hunting Montana grizzly country

    I know people down there as well as outfitters in the Anaconda Pintlar wilderness. None of them have ever seen a grizzly. Ever.

    WY outfitter review- 2023 planning

    If someone has first hand experience and as a result posts a negative review I would think you’d want to know about any problems in advance. That being said the Sheridan area is very nice. Great deer hunting! Good luck!

    Archery elk hunting Montana grizzly country

    You have a better chance of winning a billion dollars in the Powerball than crossing paths with a grizzly in the Bighole.

    People need to stop and think about the reason why our opportunities are shrinking. It’s because there are so many of us! Back before the internet our only source of information was reading stories from Jim Zumbo (who’s that you ask?) or stuff in Petersens and we didn’t have these problems. You...

    2022 East coast guys heading west

    26 hours from Pa. I’ve done it all. Never stopped halfway…. Closer to 3/4 of the way to make day 2 easy and to start setting camp at a decent time. I flew out once and had a partner pick me up. That was nice! I’ve shut my eyes for 2 hours at a rest area then kept going. Two of us have driven...

    Are there states where residents don’t have more and better opportunities?

    How are you reducing ounces?

    My best weight loss device. Right before I hit the trail I lose 10-14 ounces in 30 seconds. Lol

    They had the ability to apply for and draw those tags before they became leftovers. The reason they are leftovers is because residents didn’t apply for them.

    Newbs Guided Elk hunt guide (on mostly public land)

    Well the first mistake was choosing Northwest Montana. That region has been in terrible shape for years.

    Fitness vs. Accuracy

    When I’m going to a new area I try to see it as if it was a different area that I know really well. If the main ridge runs north/south I’ll think of a similar area that I’m familiar with and use it as a template to try to make an educated guess at where the elk might be. Elk habits can vary from...

    I drew region G with 0 points and don't know anything

    It’s about mid August. I hope you’ve narrowed down a plan. Get yourself some topo maps, pick 2-3 spots and hunt them. And contact Wyohunth! That’s exactly what you need.

    Fitness vs. Accuracy

    If you have to go that far to find elk you’re spending too much time getting in shape . You’d be better served to learn your area better. I guarantee there are elk within 2 miles of the road and most likely less.

    And just like that all those task force meetings meant nothing. Gotta love that.
