    Michigan Elk Tag

    I'm excited get to apply for my Michigan elk tag and fall bear tag on Tuesday and then in a month and a half i find out if i drew it. We don't have a huge elk herd here but they give out about 80 to 100 tags to the residents. Its hard to draw a tag so I will be hoping and crossing my fingers. The elk are not as big as out west but I would just be excited to take an elk in my home state which is a once in a life time draw for bulls (or once in 10 years for cows). So heres to hoping!

    The boys in Lansing are talking about cutting the bear tags to half the numbers from the last few years. The quality has fallen off badly. Hope they get it right.
    I have put in for an elk tag every year since the start, no dice.

    man i hope the tags don't drop to much for bears or ill be waiting a real long time. The unit that's closest to me that we have hunted for deer in for years already only has 60 tags and takes 9 point to even have a shot at a tag. might have to find another unit if they do cut it down to much for bears. I know the unit next to it only took 4 points last year to draw might have to consider that one.

    Did you guys see where they shot 8 wolves in Ironwood? They were in town chasing deer that came to bird feeders. That end of the UP is crazy with wolves.

    I'll be inspecting the Ironwood post office this month. Got all the UP larger offices plus northern Wisconsin. I saw a big wolf got hit by one of my other offices Shawano, WI. Heard they are as far south as Portage. Looks like there will be a hunting season next fall. Will be up as far as Wausau turkey hunting next week.

    No i didn't see that but i know that part of the UP is having some real wolf problems. Been screwing up the deer population up in that area really bad.

    This is the first year I put in for either vs bull only. I'm at max chances so along with my wy elk hunt maybe I can fill the freezer with some lean protein!
