I just found out that I drew for a late season Cache elk hunt. I now can justify that new hunting rifle I've been eyeing.

Anybody else draw?

Not that I have been told :x

But I guess they still have until the 30th. (fingers crossed)

Unsuccessful for my buck tag. :roll:

But I've still got at least 50 pounds of venison in the freezer from last year! :eating:

Bragging and being obnoxious. The best $500.00 I ever spent was for a lifetime license when they were still available. Southeast, rifle, you betcha!!

You can always get a general archery tag . . . there are usually more of them than people who apply for them so can be picked up over the counter. That's how I'll be hunting this year--I have awful luck in rifle hunt draws.

Nah Arrows are dangerous, there is a much higher % of people who die by AD (Accidental Discharge) of a bow and arrow then die by AD of a guns. :shock:

(True fact, BS reason. Wife wont let me get into Arrows and guns, I have to choose)

That's the only way I hunt deer. The tag I failed to draw was a muzzleloader any bull elk tag. I quit rifle hunting years ago. Way too much chance of actually shooting something.

:ROFL: Yeah, I'm about that way too. I don't think about pulling the trigger unless I know it's going on the wall. And if it's in some big canyon miles from the road, it has to be a real monster before I even think about it.

But with archery hunting, I stand a pretty good chance of dieing of boredom.

Really? I've had some of the most amazing wildlife experiences of my life while bowhunting. My favorite has to be the time I got knocked off a log by a playful fawn who was kind of bouncing side to side as it went down the trail. It (and its mother) had no idea I wasn't just another bush. I reflexively wrapped my arms around the fawn to catch it as I fell over, and I could have held on and picked it up, easy as anything.

Whether I'm sitting motionless and blending in, quietly creeping through the forest or actually stalking, I feel like I become part of the nature around me when I'm bowhunting. I could do the same thing without the bow, of course, and on occasion I dress up and head out with my camera, but never with quite the same intensity.

I drew out for southern turkey this year...after four years, and my luck of drawing out for deer is twice as bad! That's why I went the dedicated hunter route this year...guaranteed for two out of three years! :p
