    Well guys, I got lucky this year....after applying for a Michigan Elk Tag for 30 yrs. I finally drew one. Although it is not a bull tag, its for an anterless elk, kind of bittersweet. My hunt date is December 7th thru 15th 2013. Looking forward to some Elk meat for once. I have three (3) preference points in Wyoming and will have four (4) soon as I will purchase another this year.

    Don't really want to mount a cow head head, but would like a momento from the hunt. Anyone have any ideas? I have never shot an elk that wasn't hit by a vehicle first!...lol

    I am headed to Wyoming for an pronghorn hunt in October, so am looking forward to that. Hunting the Douglas area as we have for many years. I was hoping to draw an elk tag for the Laramie peak area, which is in a trophy area. Anyone have any thoughts on another area with decent harvest opportunity?

    I would tan the hide and get the ivories. Also congrats even if its a cow tag it will still be cool to be able to hunt a elk in your home state.
