I'm south the panhandle or I'd help you out too. Yiu can get into some awesome stuff in the Upper Joe, but I'd take H60 up on his offer. He has ponies I believe!

That last picture is a great one. Definitely needs a quote. I'm thinking "Come at me bro" or "Coming back for more disappointment?"

Morels are finally showing up around here. About three weeks later than normal though.

My show Outdoor Acumen. Episode 4 is dropping Friday. I interview hunter and professional photog Sam Soholt. Some of you may know him from his school bus converted into a camper. Thanks for listening and please leave a review.

Fuck you Elk hunters.

My state just received about 300 Elk from Arizona. There haven't been any here since the 1880's.

So, managing 300. Creating new habit for them from reclaimed mining property. Plus continued support from the western states...Ill suppose they will have a marginal, sustainable breeding herd only in managed areas by the time I'm 130 y/o.

And it's absolutely the best wild game I've eaten.

So again....Fuck You and good hunting.

My state tried to re-introduce elk after they were wiped out around 1840.
Never mind the entire habitat is vastly different today vs. 1840.

Small herd drops about thirty calves each year. Each year the wolves eat most or all of the calves. (Wolves also re-introduced by the same folks who thought of the elk but obviously didn't make the connection)

Since the DNR has been disappointed by the failure of the small herd to grow, it was decided to import more elk to grow the herd. Although nobody asked the wolves, I am sure they would have voted in favor of that decision.

Usually that kind of stuff comes out of revenue generated thru hunting license sales. Va has a similar program. Not taxpayer funding.
In WV they probably told the Arizona elk that oxy was cheaper in WV and they relocated on their own.

Wildlife management in most cases falls to the states. The majority of the funding for those kind of relocation projects comes license sakes and from excise taxes placed on hunting, fishing and shooting gear ( Pittman Robertson and Dingle Johnson, and yes Dingle Johnson is a real piece of legislature) and private funding from groups like RMEF who I would say has lead the charge on most of these reintroduction projects. I'm sure there are plenty of exceptions to the above though.

I gladly pay the fees for licenses and special stamps because I get to see first hand the good done with the money. Now if we can just get the Feds to open up an Atlantic Red Snapper season that'll be the shit.

Driving home the other evening I saw four - five young bucks munchin grass on the side of Butler Blvd just west of the intercoastal. I know that property and it is closed to the public

Here is a video of our 2017 elk hunt in NM. We have some landowner tags in unit 15 if anyone is interested in joining us.

I will not be happy till I bow hunt elk again in the high country. North of Lefty just issued about 10 elk tags in it's first elk hunt. What a joke , I say of the issue. Wolves need to be eradicated from the upper midwest, IMHO, before the deer and elk populations can thrive.

Slow part of the year for hunting, but I found a nice patch of morels a few weeks back. Ended up with a gallon dried out it. Huckleberry crop seems to be coming on strong and chanterelles and lobsters should start popping up in a month or so.

I have eaten a ton of corals , mostly in hunting camp before the hunters get in . I enjoy anything that grows wild for the most part, cooked over a woodstove or campfire. I did not get in on the morels this year as my sister's farm sold and my 40 acre secret stash of shrooms went with it.
