    The mornings are crisp and cool and the fog has rolled in. You can smell it in the air! It's bow hunting season again already!

    I've almost all but put the rods up in favor of archery gear, hopefully I get a coho day or 2 in this season! For now, it's pack prep and shooting the block.

    Who else is getting pumped?

    One of my groups at 57 yards today. Getting closer to where I need to be!

    Nice! Looking like a dead elk there.

    Lol about the bugles. I live near downtown and I’m sure the neighborhood is getting concerned there might be a herd bull walking the streets.

    Not doing archery this year, but my pack is packed and I'm ready for high buck in a couple weeks. Doing a hike with the family today for berries...and maybe if I found a bear...

    Thanks, I'm trying like hell. I figure high buck is the only place that everyone's on equal footing: no private land, no 4 wheelers. And mule deer are so much fun to chase.

    My plan this year was to spend a week in the mountains above Lake Chelan, but an unexpected job change means I have only have weekends this year. So, I spent Saturday walking 10 miles in the wilderness and saw absolutely nothing. Need to get higher quicker to still be in range of the truck. Found another trail to try, but otherwise we'll be sitting in a small clearing hoping and praying.

    Got a buddy's place lined up with a couple 4x4's hanging around for regular season when that doesn't work out ;)

    My cousins down on the Oregon coast have been able to chase Rosie’s since August 24th. Lucky bastards. Their season is a full month long for archery

    I wish they would give us an extra week and let us hunt into the Rut.

    Me too. I wouldn’t expect anything less from our state though.

    Well my early elk season is a wrap. Called in 4 bulls within 60 yards. The only shot we had at a bull my buddy clipped a branch on a 23 yard shot at a 4x4. I missed a cow at 62 yards last night. I have zero complaints though. Action packed 6 days of chasing rosies. We were in elk 5 of the 6 days. Hope all you fellas had fun

    Spent 2 days in the wilderness for the High Buck hunt. Hiked from 2600-4800 feet in just over 3 miles on Saturday and saw nothing and no sign. Then because of the rain, stayed lower on Sunday, saw a buck and another deer (too dark to see) at 45 minutes before first light and nothing else all day. I've never been more aware of my calves than today.

    That had to be a beautiful 2 days though... I’ve heard those high hunts are either feast or famine. Never done it myself.

    It was a beautiful area up high, and down low. One more weekend of high buck. I've got some more hunting I need to do from that parking spot before I give up on it. There's so much thick cover that's impossible to hunt, and some rad areas that need to be sat by people more patient than me.
