    Hi all,

    Well BJ and myself finally drew some elk tags this year. BJ got us chummed up with a friend in WY a while back and he has kindly allowed us to hunt on his 14K acres. Its a unit 5 tag which is not known for massive bulls but this is also due alot to the fact that it is primarily privately owned land, not alot of BLM .

    We are starting the hunt on Oct 1st and plan on doing alot of documentation, by photography and hopefully a decent amount of video if a few variables pan out for us. This will be both BJ and myself's first time elk hunting so any tips are greatly appreciated. I will be shooting my surgeon 7mm WSM and BJ will most likely be shooting his new DTA rifle in a unknown caliber. THe area is just west of Wheatland, WY if anyone knows the area.

    thanks
    steve

    Yes I know the area and there are some nice bulls in there. Depending on what I draw this year if I have some free time I can come over and call one in for you. They will be bugling well at that time.
