From my past history I figure I need an average of 9 days during archery season in general OTC units to give me a solid chance at a mature bull. 2012 required about 14 days until I was presented a broadside shot at a 6pt bull at 16 yds. During those 14 days I had 10+ branch antlered bulls inside of 24 yds, but none of them presented the shot I was looking for or were not the right bull. 2011 I hunted 16 days and only had 1 good opportunity during archery season and I blew that one. 2010 required 13 days until I took my archery bull and 2009 8 days. How many days will you alot for yourself in the 2013 season to harvest your ELK?
