    No worries,

    Can't win them all. I just asked because I have been there and liked the country. Hopefully when you get out of the service you can punch some tags around there.

    You should post up some photos from Germany and Australia! I liked the African stuff on your profile.

    Sorry my friend, forums are usually the land of rascally folks.

    Been applying for jobs like crazy, but since I am still 7 months out I am not so hireable. Wouldn't mind working in the oil field or mines in Wyoming/Montana after this.

    I applied for some jobs in Arizona on Fort Huachuca, in New Mexico on White Sand missile range, in Utah, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska.

    Hopefully I can find something to do while I figure out what I want to be when I grow up for the 2nd time.

    Sorry to the OP for the threadjack.

    I get away from the crowds by going to rougher country and overlooked country, as previously mentioned by others. In some places (parts of ID for sure), there is still some lonely public land in places...

    I have an area where I seldom see anyone, it is one of my favorite spots. I am usually not more than 3 miles from my truck either, I go farther than most "from the truck" hunters, but not as far as the horse back or pack in guys. They go right buy some pretty good stuff. I seldom see elk sign till I get about 1/2 mile from the trail, if I do see tracks from the trail, they are on the move. You don't have to be several miles in the wilderness to get away from people, sometimes you find more people when you do. I look at wilderness trails just like I do roads roads, I believe the critters know where they are.

    Have you been in the Bob Marshall lately? Or the Frank Church (or is it Frank Cook? ) Wilderness, some big country in there. Depends on where we end up, and how long it takes to get those four legged Norwegian Fjord ATVs bought and trained. Hopefully we will be doing back country hunts within a few years.

    California's Powerball lottery generated 3.1 million in it's first day yesterday for a new record start. Last year's Mega Millions multi-state grew to a $656,000,000 prize. I've never played the lotto yet but with dollars like that it gets enticing to want to play.

    Public land hunting has it's drawbacks and its challenges. My thought is just to embrace the challenge and enjoy the adventure. You can find hunters or the lack of hunters and or people while deep in the wilderness away from any trail just as well as finding folks while hunting not very far from your vehicle.

    Until I win or make a boat load of money to develop a private dream ranch of my own, I'm willing to embrace the public land drawbacks and challenges. To me it's a whole lot better than not being able to hunt at all.

    Like others have states, no guarantees but generally speaking, the deeper, higher you go the less people you will find.

    The majority of hunters want to hunt an area that appeals to them. Not the elk.

    This is a fairly middle class website and I think most folks on here are blue collar guys who want to do more hunting than they can afford.

    I waited a very long time (until I was 36) to get married and have kids and I went from being a blue collar single guy living a fairly luxurious hunting life to a blue collar guy who doesn't have a pot to piss in, but has wonderful kids and a great wife.

    I miss all the stuff I used to get up, and the fairly endless financial situation in regards to hunting and guns, and I should have spent a hell of a lot more on both hunting and guns.

    Hopefully with my experience I can get into a job that pays pretty well and afford to do more private land type hunting. Or we can schlub enough cash together to build a pretty good remuda and I can hunt the wilderness areas.

    The best part of the wilderness area experience is the concept of not having the land of 10,000 quads and side by sides to share it with.
