the drawings are finally done here in MT.......grand total for special draws are a speed goat tag for both the wife and i and my oldest stepdaughter has pulled a special youth cow elk tag for her first year hunting......add that to the "A" deer tag all three of us already have......2 doe tags(though, in theory we can prolly buy 18 doe tags between the three of us if the quota is anything like the last few years)........dang....think i need to buy a couple more freezers we will be busting our rears to get Kate that elk though and may not have much time to do much but fill the speed goat tags since their season starts 2 weeks before deer & elk......

Oh, I really enjoy hunting. I hunt mostly deer and some grouse where we live. I'm hoping to start bow hunting this year, since that season starts Oct 1, and that's a great time of year around here to be outside! Our zone doesn't have doe tags, so it's buck only with our rifles.

My son bow and rifle hunts, too, and really enjoys it. We eat a lot of venison- our goal is 3-4 deer per year for our family.

Never got into it. Wasn't anything to hunt where I grew up. Just a billion acres of corn.

On the other hand, I can probably bag both deer & elk out the bathroom window. Couple days ago, a 3-pointer was chomping on one of the apple trees. Boss tried to vault the fence.

I've got a cow elk tag in October in Arizona, and plan on doing the usual fall squirrel, quail, dove small game stuff in Arizona.

elk steaks and homebrewed IPA. yum.

here is Kates' big find from 2 years ago(she is on the right), we were looking for a cow elk for the other girl's mom and had stopped on a hill top to glass awhile, the girls did a lil bit of exploring close by and found this:

going to be fun trying to get her on an elk this year........wish she would have drawn a speed goat tag aswell so she could have a 2 week warm up before trying for an elk but oh well, guess we dive in head first.....

Was out scouting deer at work tonight...drove though a local federal complex, they have about 600 acres and a ton of deer. Saw a few 8, 10, and 12 point bucks.

I like deer hunting but I'm more of a turkey hunter. Few things are better than sitting against a tree at sunrise in the Spring, listening to 'em fly down.

I fish (which is technically a form of hunting).

Besides that, I love animals, and I would feel like s*** forever if I killed a deer who was just standing there in the woods, especially if I was just going to cut the antlers off and leave the rotting carcass on the side of the road (I've seen it.) If you kill it, eat it at least.

No disrespect intended towards anyone who does hunt.
