    Turkeys gobbling

    Found a solo gobbler calling Sunday March 31st morning that I called in on S.C. Otherwise just pre-rut flocks with minimal activity.

    good news?

    My 13-yo drew a U9 early bull elk muzzleloader tag. Hunt starts right after my 11-yo archery U9 bull elk hunt. September is going to be fun. PS Russia was not engaged to draw these tags. With 12-points myself I’m still more excited to guide these boys. I’ve already been up scouting. Good luck this fall.

    CC Hit (First Elk Hunt) GEAR TIPS

    You don’t have to spend a lot to enjoy the hunt. I get my game bags AKA pillow cases at Goodwill for $0.50 or less on 1/2 day. Harbor freight has tarps and other items. Really no need for camo on rifle hunt. Just warm clothes good boots and comfortable sleeping setup. Again there you can double two cheaper sleeping bags to get awesome comfort vs. expensive one. I use moving blankets from HF on floor and on top of bag in really cold nights. With four boys I had to Improvise otherwise I would be broke. Check out Craigslist and other classified ads. Hunter/Outdoorsman are gear nuts and always selling of stuff at good prices. Here is a screenshot of my meat knive set. Not one over $25 but do awesome job. Guess you could say I am RUNNING Cheap but having fun. But like other posts I own good glass Swarovski 8.5x42 EL (hand hold better than 10s)and 15X56 w tripod for long range. But my boys have Vortex which are great for price. Good luck this fall and enjoy the campfire.

    Transporting a Turkey on an Airplane for Taxidermy

    I brought one back from TX. Bought big girl pantyhose and cut them in half and slide it down one leg to keep feathers in place. Recommended by taxi. Then froze solid and put in trash bag inside luggage. Must be solid or they get funny. It was still hard in PHX this was in April.

    Draw Odds Question

    It may not apply above but, PointGuard is messing up the figures and max points needed. People are donating and turning in their tags because it wasn't a great growth year or various other reasons. In some cases the next applicant was contacted so they can hunt and it uses their points (and no longer in the pool) but in others the tag went to non-profit orgs to distribute (no points removed from pool). These tags can take a lifetime to draw and with PointGuard we are going to experience point creep that it may take two lifetimes. It's messed up when a guy donates the tag to keep his points and then the non-profit grants that tag to his son. Whenever there are rules, people will play them. What are your thoughts?

    Zodi X-40 Hot Tap Shower

    http://zodi.com/hot-showers/x-40-shower This is a real man's shower unit (not good for backpacking). Hooks up to bulk propane tank for long hot showers to get all the blood, guts, grease and grim off. Works great! I bought a trailer with inside and outside shower, so no longer need this bad boy. X-40 is ~$500 new. I will take $250. Not best pictures but it’s what I have. We setup on a trailer to allow water to drain and you dry off without getting muddy. Privacy tent NOT included
