    for several years they've just been sitting on top of my safe just waiting on an elk hunt. :)
    I got em for elk and drew an archery tag back then. Offered them to JD when his daughter drew a bull tag long time ago.

    Congratulations to all that got drawn. I hope you all get a big one. I quit putting in years ago. I have been out west Elk hunting several times and finally just gave up on getting drawn in Ky.

    Well, this was the year I was gonna give up donating, but in the last few days it pulled me back in.

    Totally forgot the drawing was Saturday, I got a text about 10:30 at night from an old friend saying "Congrats!"

    I asked him what the hell he was talking about and he sent me a video for my name being drawn. I was stunned.

    Elk cow firearm hunt for me! And I NEVER win shit!

    Same thing happened to me I found out from a buddy that I was drawn in 2018. I had to cancel a trip to Ireland to go hunt. Congrats....

    Good Luck to all that drew tags.

    I had high hopes for my 12 y.o. son to draw but a goose egg again this year.

    Talked with lost mountain yesterday and semi reserved a spot since nothing can be for sure set in stone until we draw our units.

    Now, got to upgrade to a better scope on my Remington 700 30-06, and go shopping for bullets and see what I can find.

    Wife and Daughter went without me in 2018, so all good. I was able to transfer funds to our trip to Monaco and Nice in 2019.

    I would also pick up a Primos shooting rest and good bino's. I went with the tripod Primos version quick adjust and it worked great. Get a good Bonded Bullet in 180 grain if you can find it. I was shooting Federal Premiums and had pieces of bullets just inside the hide when we dressed it out. I had no exit hole and had little blood trail, but I was lucky and it didn't go 30-40 yards. I used this ammo since I had 5 boxes of it and figured it was good enough.

    I just wish nothing but ill will, terrible hunts and no success for all the dicks buying up all the ammo just to resell it on gun broker to make a few bucks.

    I was in OPS supply yesterday in Simpsonville getting some arrows and they had a bunch of 30-06 in stock including 180 grain. Or try Sportsman's Warehouse.
