    Cool WY Elk Unit 61

    I burned my points and drew a 61-1 elk tag. I'm trying to get one with a bow, but I'd really like to try and get a 350-type bull. Am I crazy? Should I lower my goals?

    I'd love to know if I'm nuts.

    Be honest. I can take it

    Nope, but you can?t hunt the best part without a guide. You squared away there?

    Yep, thanks for checking. Going with Shoshone Lodge. I just don't want to be the doofus that shows up with crazy unrealistic goals.

    You have realistic expectations. They have a good camp with a track record of happy hunters. You should do well there!

    The hunt was awesome. Dozens of dozens of bugling bulls, we didn't have grizzly issues (though we had a sow and two cubs at 60 yards), the guide was super patient while I looked for the right bull, camp was clean and comfortable. I couldn't be happier.

    Good luck to everybody else this year.
