    Early fire season

    I know a lot of people evacuating. Some said there are house on fire as they were leaving.

    Next years youth giveaway guns

    Just a thought. Watch for rebates offered by manufactures through the summer. A couple of years ago I wanted a Browning xbolt and found a $100 mail in rebate. I found them at Reeds for $459 on sale and free shipping. Even after the FFL I was under $400 for the gun.

    Elk 101

    When my wife had a tag in 2016 the hunt was early in Sept. I listened to every podcast I could find with Corey Jacobson. It worked very well for us. I used a flextone bugle so I could remove the tube and use it with a diaphragm call.

    Should I upgrade from 30-06?

    Unless you are really stuck on the PRC I would look at other more available options. The 7mm mag, 300 mag, 300WSM are all very capable of what you want and much more available. The xbolt is a great gun in my opinion.

    7 day backcountry elk hunt

    Good rain gear! I had Sitka last year in Alaska and it worked great for 7 days. The other guys had OR and that worked well too. Getting soaked can ruin a hunt fast.

    Hunting with glasses

    I have been hunting in contacts for 25yrs. They can be irritating at times, but my buddy with glasses struggles way more. If its dusty I usually take daily wear contacts and just throw them away at night. Whenever We are in camp I just take them out and wear glasses. Transition lenses are nice but they take getting use to. If you walk into a dark room after being in the sun they take a few seconds to change.

    Tire Question

    We have a 2006 GMC 2500 that is my wife's daily driver. She only drives about 30 miles a week. Aside from that I use the truck for hunting, hauling water, and the occasional trip to town. I also drive it to work if we get a lot of snow. Last time I bought tires the guy at Big O talked me out of mud tires saying they would be terrible on snow and ice. I went with an AT tire instead. They are ok but on the late elk hunts I would really like a more aggressive tire. Its time to buy tires again and I was wanting to get some opinions. Does anyone here have experience driving on ice and snow with mud tires? Do they wear a lot faster than AT tires on a full size truck? Tires last us several years with no more than we drive so I don't want regret my choice.

    bonus pass report

    One was and antelope hunt that showed they didn't issue all the the tags they should have in the bonus pass. I had to go look at last years regs to be sure I had the right hunt. I don't remember what hunt it was.
