We all have our reason(s) for being on this or any other hunting forum. We share and even brag just a little, we learn or validate what we think we know, etc. Personally I am interested in what you know and what techniques help you in different situations. Even after killing many elk, I still find new items of interest. There are some very knowledgable folks who post online information. I know I am a better hunter today because of websites like this. In addition, I am more than willing to share just about any "how-to" type of knowledge I have. I have never felt that someone else's success comes at my lose. I am happy for your good fortune. Elknut's calling recommendations and the way Big Dan goes after a herd bull have been shared so clearly that even I can follow up on their advise. Many others have written of interesting experiences or "worth trying" tips. So, what have you learned and why are you reading this thread? What do you hope to get out of this site?
