Bill and I plan to meet in Great Bend, Kansas in 25 days and head west to Durango, Colorado to chase elk with our bows. Before we are able to hear the echoing bugles in the valley, there is a lot of preparation! We are both excited and overwhelmed about establishing our first elk camp and experiencing a fair-chase hunt of this nature.
Getting ready for a high-altitude adventure has caused both of us to pay frequent visits to the gym, needless to say I have found a deep level of resentment towards the elliptical machine and the evil setting called "mountain trail"! We have also been expanding our shooting distances out to 50+ yards. After loosing a few arrows we are well on our way.
