    What do you think is the top three pieces of gear a new western hunter should have in their arsenal?
    1. Good optics! I prefer a 10x42 but with a tripod 12's and 15's are good too!
    2. Tough boots.
    3. A good map of the unit they are hunting. Hunting without maps is like hunting blind IMO.

    Guy,
    Any chance the Eastman's deer tour will ever swing out to Chicago area? A lot of guys in Midwest would love it!

    What would be your best advice to a hunter that just drew a limited quota elk tag in Wyoming and who has NEVER hunted elk before? (Archery)

    That's a good question. I actually have a Kifaru TeePee with no floor that I used to use a lot and spend a lot of time in some very nasty weather in AK in a Black Diamond. They have their pros and cons. The pros are, they are quick, easy and light. The cons, you will pay the price with bug, moisture and cold. A walled tent is much more efficient and can gain you up to 20 degrees in temperature. the no floor tents are colder until the snow covers the edges. And sometimes you can end up with a creek or a puddle in the middle if you don't pitch it right or get the wrong kind of weather. I think they work great in early season, or on a sheep hunt where weight is super critical. Even in a floor-less tent I started carrying a tarp to use a floor, but then the point of weight savings is kind of negated. G-

    Here's my question guy: When packing a bull out of the backcountry (say 4-5 miles from the nearest road w/out horses) in September when it can get to 75 degrees or warmer how do you keep your meat fresh? I usually hang mine in game bags in the shade and try to get it out as quickly as my legs can take me. I normally have 1-2 people to help pack out but it still takes a couple trips. Do you use spray to keep the flies off? Sleeping bags to keep it cool?

    Guy,
    Also, what techniques would you use to hunt central Wy elk in the sage/rock outcroppings type ground? Glass fr truck, put some miles on your boots?
    What could a hunter expect hunting this type of country in December?

    Do your research, get the maps, talk to as many people as possible and read up on elk behavior. Elk can be tough to hunt and their behavior and the country is a huge key to success. -G
