The reason why I hunt is to be with people I enjoy being around the camp fire at the end of the day. I am going on my first DIY Elk hunt this year. Every time I go into the field I remember what my dad would always said to me at "it's called hunting not killing you will not get a animal every time you go into the field." That being said I do not have a lot of expectation this year on my elk hunt, but plan on gathering lots of knowledge and having lots of fun with my brother!!
