    I am so depressed ....

    I am so depressed...
    I was all set...cocked locked and ready to head out to elk camp in Tex Creek in a couple weeks.
    All my gear is already pre-inspected,cleaned, fixed...ready to pack, all details double checked, ammo loaded, rifles sited in, knives sharpened, truck and trailer serviced, new tires,,,ect..

    Then the septic system took a dump literally....then a week later the furnace guy says my funace is toast.

    I can't believe so much expense could come in so short of time, Never the less my hunting is done for this year.
    No way to get funds to drive to idaho from wisconsin except a loan from the bank....not doing that...wife says go ahead.......arrrgggg

    You folks, please help me by posting pics of your camp and hunt in the coming weeks....please !!!!!!!!

    I am going nuts here

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck man. When it rains it pours I guess. Hope everything takes a turn for the better. Hang in there!

    screw the loan, fix the heat, poop outside and fix the septic later (you're going to leave your scat outside when you're camping, just think of it as an extension of your trip when you're doing it at home too)

    That sucks man!! Sorry to hear about your bad luck. I think I would probably take the loan, but my wife would kill me so you are one step ahead already

    Sorry to hear it gspman, keep your chin up, brother.

    If it helps any, we had near perfect weather for two weeks in AK ... but when I got home to MT the valley was still socked in with smoke.

    We could all send you $20 and you would be on your way, we could call it "hunters against bad luck".

    Man I feel your pain I am so sorry to hear that. I have hunted the open bull hunt before in the Tex Creek Zone. It is a good hunt. The best part the tag is OTC and the elk will be there next year. Keep your chin up.
