    The hunting gods have smiled on me once more, drew a cow tag for Green Mountain! This will be my first time hunting elk there but have called a few song dogs in the area.;a

    congratulations. i have to wait to see what i get this year. i put in for elk, deer and black bear. hopefully something pans out.

    my hunting area is on the border of that little fire we have going out here. with 450,000+ acres of habitat gone, i'm sure that all of the neighboring areas will be teaming with game.

    Congrasts on your draw. Wish you the best of luck. Using gun or bow?

    Shoot straight.

    I will be taking a couple of rifles each time I go out.

    I will always take a lever gun. either a Marlin 1895ss 45-70, a Browning repro 1886 45-70, or a Browning repro 1895 30-06. But for when I get desperate I'll also have a custom '98 Mauser in 338-06. I'd rather use a lever gun, really don't care which one.

    The area isn't but about 100 miles from where I live so zooming out there on a weekend morning isn't a problem although I will be camping in the area the opening week. Doubt if it takes that long to connect with a cow tho.
