It's Almost Over

It's Almost Over
2017 Hunting season is almost over for me... I have one last little 1 or 2 day hunt in Idaho for a late season archery elk. I don't know for sure if I can sneak out of work and responsibility, but I'd really like one last chance, my hunting for elk here in WA late season was a bust. I had a bull come into my stand on November 29th and he never showed back up. The elk in my area migrate once the snow hits pretty good which it did, so he probably just headed down the mountain. I sat my stand Thursday and only saw deer, in fact I saw my next year shooter buck in person and he's a dandy mountain whitetail. He's probably a 130 inch 5x5, he needs some work on his frame and the length should hold up so maybe next year he'll be in that 140 class.
