I'm hoping next year will be my first venture "out west".  Time is coming.  Hope you guys have a great time together, Pappy.

Some day...bowhunting Rocky Mountain elk is my dream hunt.  Enjoy, and maybe send some pictures our way when you can!

I'm getting ready too!  Drew a good elk tag this year.  Getting my arrows all tuned and blades sharpened up.  Can't wait to get out there!  Good luck, everybody.  Can't wait to see (and maybe share) some success photos.
