    You've got a three way relationship between KDFWR, local politicians, and mineland owners. Nobody wants to be the one to make the locals mad. KDFWR don't want their elk poached, miners don't want their equipment burned, pols don't want to lose votes.

    Being the right hand man of LMO, I would have thought you would have been the help so he wouldn't have to reach out further. Way to go!

    BTW- I know this is an old thread but sometimes a guy. Has to reminisce.

    Hurley Jr is doing a lot better. He's had a rough road since his surgery, but he's getting better each day. Talked to him last night, and he was much improved. Be back good as new soon.

    Without reading every single post on this thread I will add my 2 cents. Everyone wants to bash KDFW but aren't they the ones that brought the elk back in the first place? Because the success rate dropped a tad this past season doesn't mean the elk herd is in trouble, it happens with deer seasons too? should we decrease harvest of deer when that happens? The point of the elk hunt is not so 100% can kill an elk, that would be shooting, not hunting. i got drawn this year, I'm looking forward to chasing elk east of the mississippi river and I thank the KDFW for everything they are doing. A side note, I will not be paying a guide service to hunt. I feel like the guides are the ones bringing a diservice to the elk hunting in the state, call it greed, but I hope that this new program KDFW is implementing for large land owners to open up properties to hunters in turn for a landowner tag weeds out some of these so called guides services! Just my 2 cents.
