    If you know how to bone an animal out, you can get by with just one knife or maybe two. I like to carry a havalon because it's easy to trade out blades when one gets dull. I also carry a small...

    Ibuprofen, aspirin, neosporen, medical and duct tape, moleskin, anti-diarreal pills (nothing worse than getting the shei-ts in the backcountry), allergy pills, Tylenol PM, band-aids, and gauze. I...

    The answer to your question can be summed up in one word "BIG". If you haven't hunted elk, then you will be amazed at their size if you are lucky enough to get one down. Don't underestimate how...

    MM is right....you won't realize just how much work an elk is until you have one down. Especially so if this is your first go at it. Be careful you don't underestimate just how difficult it will be...

    If you take care of the antelope (shoot them when they're calm / cool down the meat immediately), they are far and away better than mule deer IMO. Cool looking mount, much easier hunt, and, on...

    MM has it right. Find a unit you can draw with 0 points then find a unit that has decent access. If there is doable access, you'll have a good hunt...especially if you're not trophy hunting. ...

    "It depends" is the obvious answer to the question, but I agree with Musket Man...wilderness areas are awesome country and just being there is a large part of the experience. Find one where there...

    Antelope hunting is just a different hunt altogether. You can find some up high, but most will be in lower country that is cut up with roads, gas lines, well heads, power lines, etc...all signs of...

    My wife's family camps up the Greys every summer for a week, and I've been up there a dozen times now since marrying my wife. One of these days I'm actually going to hunt it. There are plenty of...

    My experience is you stay on "established roads/trails". If there is a "road closed" marker, it's off-limits. Also, only public roadways (state highways, county roads, etc.) will allow you access...

    If the question is between the .243 and .270, I'd go with the .270 which would be a better "all around gun" from varmints to elk. The 243 will kill elk, but you'd better hit them in the right spot,...

    Those were my thoughts. A little thicker grass and you could have been on a golf fairway. Nice goats!

    That's awesome Kevin - can't wait to take my son kids on their own hunts in the next 4-5 years. Took my 5-yr. old son on my antelope hunt this year in WY Unit 48, and he had a blast!

    Both of the units you list have difficult public access, so unless you have an in with a landowner or know something the rest of the public doesn't, I'd look elsewhere. Nothing worse than thinking...
