    Grizzlystik 650

    Has anyone here tried the Grizzly stik 650 arrows? Sounds like an interesting concept, I’m considering trying it for my Wyoming elk hunt this year.

    I’m guessing they already put my name on a sheep tag, but I’ll wait until Wednesday to put in my vacation dates.

    Altitude sickness

    Never tried Diamox, but I spend 49 weeks/year at home less than 1000’ above sea level and often very hot and humid. I Spend 2-3 weeks/year between 9000’ and 12,000’ in CO for the last 15 years. If I can stay hydrated I do very well hiking/hunting/biking for a chubby 41 year old. If I can...

    Everyone!

    This year I put in for deer, elk and antelope in New Mexico, elk and sheep in Nevada, general elk in Wyoming and points everywhere else. I drew my third choice deer in NM, struck out on everything else. I expect to draw Wyoming general elk. My research for most units was a combination of...

    General Elk Archery vs Rifle

    Thanks, we’ve killed a few elk in heavily pressured Colorado OTC units, all 2-3 miles in and 1500’ or more up from the trailhead. Sounds like WY general will be similar to escape crowds. One thing I’m sure of is we’ll have a great time; elk or not!

    jocularity

    That’s funny stuff. I’m not a fan of electric fences, when I was a kid my grandpa rigged one up to some sheet metal to keep the raccoons out of a big peach tree. After feeding cows one rainy day I walked up and touched it, told my dad and grandpa it wasn’t working. Dad walked and put his...
