    JMack, if you don’t mind me asking, who are you hunting with? I’m scheduled to hunt with Bear Track Outfitters in Buffalo this Oct., mule deer buck and cow elk tags in hand!

    I say that if elk is not something that you get to hunt on a regular basis, you should do it. Elk hunting is usually much more challenging, unless it is a hay field herd, and the size of the animal makes it special. Good luck on your hunt.

    You may never pass that way again.

    I'm of the mindset of buying every tag available-but I routinely eat a lot of tags, and licenses playing the western points lotto's!
