    Any big hunts planned for this year?

    Let’s hear if y’all are doing anything besides normal in state or family hunts. We went to CO for elk 2 years ago, DIY public land. Buddy killed a bull, I missed a cow. Last year we both had newborns so we stayed home but drew a quota hunt on an island nearby. Headed back to CO to chase elk again this September, been starting to get my ass in shape.

    Nothing big for this year, just the normal bull and cow tags around the Flaming Gorge area, and some Pronhorn tags over in Wyoming. Trying to get a deer hunt going in northern Idaho for next year.

      Going to do black bear with hounds in Michigan, assuming they don't cancel it for out of staters. Dad's friend owns a cabin, has been doing it since 1968, just glad to have help from a you guy handling dogs and whatnot.

        I don't have to leave the province to hunt. Gonna have my limited entry meeting this weekend, put in for Rosie's around here, moose, sheep and goat up north. Wife and kid are going back east for most of November so I'll be chasing blacktails hard then. Already have a bear this spring, and some cougar left from last season.

          That'll be badass! I've never run hounds before, but it's on my list of hunts I'd like to do!

            Nothing "big" , but my dad and I both drew for elk this year in the same area for the same hunt. So that will be cool going hunting with him and both of us having tags.

                I was making plans at the beginning of the year, but things fell through. Will put in for the TX draw hunts when they open. I also put in for Arkansas elk tags, and whitetail draw hunts.

                  The annual muzzle loader season elk, deer, or hopefully both in September. Drew for a moose for the 5th year so maybe that too, we’ll see when the results come in.

                    It's pretty awesome. It's tough to get a tag because they limit non-residents to 3 or 5% of the draw, but since it's kind of a group activity anyway, you get the full experience, short of pulling the trigger regardless. That part is pretty anti-climactic anyway. Most of the excitement is in listening to the dogs work, trying to find the best logging road to minimize the miles you walk through the swamp, seeing animals we don't have in Ohio, etc.

                    This is exactly what it's like: https://youtu.be/42fBgxHt7Zc

                        If all goes as planned it should be a great fall. We elk hunt in CO every year but normally get OTC tags and save our preference points. This year we decided to apply for a unit that has taken us 9 years to save for, hoping a couple of us can get into the bulls. Mulie hunt my dad and I applied for a unit that takes 11-12 years to draw, we haven't hunted Mulies in CO in 13 years due to a variety of reasons. My dad should also have an antelope buck tag that I will help him fill. I am really hoping and will do everything in my power to help my dad fill all 3 of those tags. He'll be 74 this fall and has already hinted he's about ready to be the camp bitch!

                          Sounds awesome. Waiting to see if we drew CO muzzleloader tags or are going OTC archery. Have 2 elk points and 3 muley points, just started the western thing two years ago. Have been backpack hunting so far but the whole “elk camp” deal looks like a blast. Planning to get a Seek Outside tipi and wood stove at some point when the boys start being old enough to tag along.

                            I was too busy last year to make a Wisconsin grouse/woodcock trip And we did not renew the quail lease in Oklahoma. I am going to Wisconsin in October. My two favorite dogs will be eight next week, my oldest will be 10, 2 dogs are 6.5 and the youngest 3 are 4.5years. I will never have as many dogs in their prime as I have this year.
                            We are looking at some western states hunts. I would really like to get a wild chuckar hunt, mearns and valley quail.
