Given your line of work, I was going to make a joke about panties on your face versus panties in your face, but a well-meaning friend and self-appointed arbiter of my moral conscience told me I needed to do a better job maintaining my filters in a public forum such as this, and he's usually right.

In what part of the state will you be hunting? California is not a state I think about when I think of hunting outside of Texas.

Iím flying in to Sacramento then drive about three hours north. Hunting by a town called laytonville. California has fabulous hunting and lots of species to chase. Tags arenít easy to get and dealing with the government sucks. California is the only place you can kill all three elk species.

In typical fashion I **** near missed my second flight! Was sitting at the gate and it kept saying boarding for Las Vegas. I never saw Sacramento listed and didn’t know I had a stop. I was second to last one to board the plane!

Are the differences between a Tule Elk and a Rocky easy to tell?

My gear is ready for the am! Made it to the ranch and after pulling through the gate I sat and listened to bugling bulls for about 10-15 minutes before heading to the ranch house. Outfitter says the bulls are going crazy and almost all the cows on the ranch are in one big flat. Sounds like different bulls moving in and out daily. Iím the last hunter here for the season so we can run and gun and make things happen. Should be a good time!!!! Going to try to get some sleep which is never easy for me on the first night of the hunt. 0430 will be here quickly!
