    New Hunters

    I have two first time hunters wanting help from me this year. Definitely makes it harder to draw but the more people interested/involved in hunting hopefully can help us fight off the anti hunting crowd.

    Elk Processor in Payson

    I have used round valley and noah. Both have done a good job. I did call Noah earlier this year and got a message that they were not taking any game for the 2020 season.

    Paper Apps for leftovers

    Didn't even get a leftover this year. Sad day when leftover javi tags are hard to come by.

    So true I was so proud of him for sticking it out and staying positive. Unlike me 😃.

    Agreed that if there wasn't a dead animal at the end of the hunt it would still be a success. Sharing the experiences in the woods with my son is the true "trophy". Also agreed that things not working the way we want teaches great lessons. I'll add something that I did not share earlier. The day before the hunt started my son found out that he was did not make the final cut for the soccer team at his school. Did he wine or moan about it. Nope!!! He just stayed positive and wanted to go hunting to forget about the outside world for awhile. He was way more positive then I could have even imagined. Very proud of him for that!!! He went into this hunt with a great attitude and ended it with one even before he got the buck!!! What I can't agree with you on is the fact that you feel the need to throw in your "$.02" in such a negative and devisive way. Acting like our success shouldn't be accepted because of the "style" of hunting we did to be successful. Just because you don't hunt that way doesn't mean others shouldn't or can't. Do your thing I support you, but stop trying to look down on other hunters when they are successful if they are doing it legally.

    Failure stress disappointment were all experienced in this hunt and others. These things can not be avoided it's part of life, but it makes success much more appreciated. That's just another lesson my son learned!!!

    Guys this was about a youth hunt!!! Sad that we can't even agree as hunters to help out future generations no matter how the style of hunting it is. If it is done legally that's all that matters!!! My son 100 percent worked his butt off for that buck and believe me their was no "instant gratification". He missed shots on this hunt and hadn't filled tags in the past on prior deer hunts. Everything he did on this and previous hunts thought him lessons to help be successful on this particular hunt. He is EXTREMELY grateful that we got a little help on the VERY LAST day of the hunt to help us make it successful. Of course being successful on hunts is the goal but even if we weren't successful my son was thought a great lesson to support others in need of help if they ask for it. That lesson alone will make him a better person in all aspects of life not just hunting!!! Hope those of you that disagree with the "style" of hunting can at least see that helping out the youth will continue to keep hunting alive and teach our young men and women great lessons that will help them throughout their life!!!

    Congratulations on getting your grandson an elk. This was about hunters supporting other hunters and that's it. BigBrowns had helped so many people over the years and would likely do it for you if you ever needed it. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but ultimately we should all support each other.
