I am so depressed...
I was all set...cocked locked and ready to head out to elk camp in Tex Creek in a couple weeks.
All my gear is already pre-inspected,cleaned, fixed...ready to pack, all details double checked, ammo loaded, rifles sited in, knives sharpened, truck and trailer serviced, new tires,,,ect..

Then the septic system took a dump literally....then a week later the furnace guy says my funace is toast.

I can't believe so much expense could come in so short of time, Never the less my hunting is done for this year.
No way to get funds to drive to idaho from wisconsin except a loan from the bank....not doing that...wife says go ahead.......arrrgggg

You folks, please help me by posting pics of your camp and hunt in the coming weeks....please !!!!!!!!

I am going nuts here

Sorry to hear about your bad luck man. When it rains it pours I guess. Hope everything takes a turn for the better. Hang in there!

i would do the loan......................

screw the loan, fix the heat, poop outside and fix the septic later (you're going to leave your scat outside when you're camping, just think of it as an extension of your trip when you're doing it at home too)

If it helps any, we had near perfect weather for two weeks in AK ... but when I got home to MT the valley was still socked in with smoke.

We could all send you $20 and you would be on your way, we could call it "hunters against bad luck". :)

Man I feel your pain I am so sorry to hear that. I have hunted the open bull hunt before in the Tex Creek Zone. It is a good hunt. The best part the tag is OTC and the elk will be there next year. Keep your chin up.

Uffda! I'm getting depressed reading this thread.

I say go man! You already spent so much do let it go to waist. You will figure it out. Maybe a generator and a space heater and do your business outside. GOOOOOOOOOOO!

All those things are terrible. but look at something. your wife told you to go. She Fing rocks!. you have all your hunting gear ready for the next adventure. your house is dialed for winter. and you have all of us to show you pics of our stories, adventures, or anything comes to mind.!!! :) don't sound too bad to me. best of luck to you brother!!! i bet the luck is coming your way :) keep your head up!

I say hunting season only happens once a year....you can always get married again...but you can never reagin this hunting season!! :)

Just a thought. Check with your insurance carrier. They may...cover some of that emergency house repairs.

yes my wife rocks, but she is not the one to go to for financial advise...lol

I made a bunch of bacon and breakfast sausage for the rest of the guys to take with. I am sure i will get somethig in return ...not that that matters..
This is one of those suck it up and deal with it moments.. especially since my son and i usually leave on the 8th.. day after tmro............arggggggggg
I am happy that everyone here is allowing me to vent, and still be cool about it.

It happens, I would not do a loan either.

Wife is begging me for us to travel more in Australia before I retire. I told her one more big trip, Great Barrier Reef and we are done.

Relocating home is going to be expensive. There will be more tags and more oppertunities.

One of my least favorite human concepts is that idea of "once in a lifetime".

The whole idea of once in a lifetime is BS.

You'll have other chances, don't worry. Just think you are that much closer to next years trip.
