Default All my bags are packed, Iím ready to go.... Tule Elk

After a long hiatus I am back in action! I havenít hunted since December and I am **** ready to go. Flying out to Sacramento then a 3 hour drive to Laytonville. Hunting the Shamrock Ranch. No idea what to expect and no clue on the fires. I have two bows and two fly rods along for the trip so should be good. Gotta get another knocked out of the 29!!!!!

Been way too long! I havenít shot anything but birds since December. I have been totally derailed with neck surgery last October then the **** Covid! Work has been busier than ever and lots of folks have taken the quarantine time to reproduce. I had my Carmen island desert sheep hunt cancelled in March due to Covid. But, now I am back!!!!!!!

Mainly just deer and pigs at the lease l. My wife and I have a hunt planned in Spain in December but itís not looking real promising. I have rescheduled my Carmen island trip to April so that will be coming up. I did book a Shiras moose hunt for next year. Trying to add Alaskan caribou in for next fall.

Might kill an elk and have it cooked before itís cleaned and quartered! I know there will be smoke and some fires in the area. I have talked to the outfitter and he assured me the ranch is fine. Hunting 17,000 acres.

I thought about buying a MAGA hat or wearing a Trump t-shirt but really want to hunt and was afraid I might get killed at the airport. Kind of curious to truly see what is going on out on the west coast.

Really hoping to find some fishing time. But, as always, gotta Hunt first.
