Wyoming Elk Unit 27 - posted 2 weeks ago

If anyone has hunted this unit and is willing to give a hunt re-cap I'd appreciate it. I should be able to draw this unit this coming year (hard to believe WY elk draw is around the corner). I'm debating this unit vs 41. I am sharing some points with friends and we'll all be at 4+ so we're trying to pin down a unit. We arent really into score but want a good hunt with the chance at a 5 or 6 point. j6784d@yahoo.com

Trail Kreitzer’s 2018 Wyoming archery elk hunting gear list - posted 3 months ago

2 things:
-I'm happy to see someone thinking along the same lines of me with lunch food. This year I'm brinking some hard cheeses, salami/pepperoni to mix things up and snack through the day with calorically dense food. I find I never sit down to really eat when chasing elk.

-I see in the photo/list you're using the Carnivore bags. I have the wapiti kit and the carnivore 2 kit. I'm torn about which to use. The wapiti kit is notably heavier but allows me to put the game bag on the meat to hang and cool and then carry. The carnivore kit wouldn't allow to bag a quarter while it hangs/cools. I'm worried that immediately deboning to bag and carry out would increase spoilage and hanging to cool before bagging with carnivore might allow the flies to get to it. What are your thoughts.

2018 Montana alternate list for deer and big game combo licenses - posted 3 months ago

Is there any sense of what the draw odds were for the non-resident deer, elk, deer/elk combo tags? or when will that be available.

To bivy or not to bivy? That is the ultimate question - posted 5 months ago

Nice article. I made some big changes to my sleep system for this fall and am excited to run with it. Had been using a Kelty Cosmic down sleeping bag with Kelty Salida 2P tent. Changing to a set-up that includes the Sea to Summit escapist tarp (large), Enlightened equipment recon bivy, and a Hammockgear camping quilt.

Very excited to shave some weight but more importantly bulk from my back to get more mobile this September. I like that the tarp is multi-purpose and can be used as a quick shelter in bad weather or cook spot if two of us bivy under the other's tarp.
