    Dec Rifle Elk Unit 8

    The unit has elk all thru out. Weather could be cold as heck, or warm & dry you just never know so be prepared for everything. If your not familiar with the unit make some trips over the summer. The elk move around so where you find them in summer they may or may not be there in late season. Late rifle is crowded so be prepared for company. 8 has lots of road so its not easy to get away from the crowds unless you go into Sycamore Canyon, but you better be prepared to pack something out of there ITS NASTY. Sycamore gets a lot of hunters as well. Good luck I have the late hunt also this year. Scouting a couple weeks before the opener is definitely a good idea, but be courteous to the late archery guys.

    Trail Cam BAN

    AZ should do like Nevada, take your camera down a month or so before seasons open. I have personally seen well over 30 cameras on one small tank unit will remain un-named. I don’t run cameras & don’t really care who does, but I have had setups blown because some douche decided to come check his cameras with his buddies while a season is open. I guess it boils down to ethics & etiquette, some hunters have it & a lot of hunters DON’T!!!

    Savage Long Range Hunter

    Where did you find the green ? I looked at Home Depot & lowes, they only had brown, tan & grey. I wanted to do one in green just couldn’t find the color anywhere.

    I have the 300 win mag & I used the grey texture paint on my stock. Bump for a great rifle, good luck with the sale.

    UofA seriously?

    Unbelievable !! If they are undocumented they are here illegally what part of ILLEGAL do they not understand!! This country is falling apart rapidly! I hate to see what is in our future, now they are trying to lower the voting age to 16! You know exactly who wants the benefit & its certainly not conservatives.

    Flooring installation question

    I specialize in remodels & I have had people ask me to go over the existing tile with new. My answer is absolutely NO!! Even if the existing tile is bonded good to the concrete, there is no way I’m going to take liability of going over existing!! You are asking for problems!!! I don’t care what anybody tells you, DEMO the existing tile & prep the floor correctly!! I have been in this industry since I was 15 & I am 50 now. My dad owned a carpet & tile store for years. There is no substitute when it comes to a quality job done proper & professional IMO!

    Flooring installation question

    I install a lot of tile as a General Contractor, I would definitely tear out the old tile & start fresh!! Good floor prep makes for an easier & better installation!!

    Good Contractors

    I’m a General Contractor & specialize in remodels. I do most of the work myself except major plumbing & electrical. I have a few guys help me on a regular basis. The subcontractors I use are guys I know well and have used for years. There are a lot of good contractors out there as well as crappy ones too. It’s with anything you have to research and get referrals!! Sorry to here about your roof. I tell my clients cheap work isn’t good and good work isn’t cheap you will get what you pay for!!

    Bull Elk 22 South

    My dad shot a decent 6 x 6 in 2017 about 2 miles from camp at 9am. We were able to get his ranger to within a half mile from it. It took 5 trips for the 2 of us to get the quarters, loose meat & head to the ranger. We got back to camp & cleaned it up & hung it was around 8pm. It’s a lot of work, but was worth every minute. By the way my dad was 76 in 2017. Get yourself in shape, elk are big animals!!!! As far as cold weather, get a Kodiak tent with a buddy heater & a good sleeping system & campout!! Motels & elk hunting just don’t give you the awesome experience IMO!! Good luck, have & BE SAFE!!
