I Dont See Any Elk

It’s the time of year when we start the tag game with state game licensing. We go through our gear to check what needs to be replaced, upgraded or repaired. One of the things overlooked every season, especially for Western game is self preparation. By self preparation, I don’t mean physical fitness, I mean mental skills and know-how! For elk this is a crucial part of your planning. [Read more…]

Elknut’s Playbook: A Great Stocking Stuffer

ElkNuts PlayBookElknut’s Playbook is a pocket sized field guide that was created after multitudes of requests came from those who watched ElkNut’s elk vocalization DVD’s and wanted to take this printed knowledge right into the woods. This is useful in practicing and planning your scenarios prior to your hunt, yet durable and small enough to take with you on your hunts…I bring it every time!

RMEF Bull Run Annual Banquet UPDATE

I wanted to provide a little update on our Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) Bull Run Chapter Annual Banquet that was held this past Saturday.

We had a great turnout in attendance this year even though we were experiencing August like weather with the temps in the 90s with high humidity. We met some new friends and some new potential committee members. We raised some good money for the RMEF, which will be greatly utilized in the reintroduction of elk in Virginia.

Here are some photos of the event:

ElkNut’s Playbook Review

Elk hunting is becoming a passion of mine and I try to gain as much information that I can. This book will reside e right next to my other 2 favorite books Backcountry Bowhunting by Cameron Hanes and Bugling for Elk by Dwight Schuh. Now, if I could just get them both to sign my books for me! [Read more…]

ElkNut’s PlayBook Update!

ElkNuts PlayBookThis is the latest update on ElkNut’s Playbook that I have received from Paul.  The publishers worked through this past weekend & assure him that he should have several hundred of them by Friday & they will start shipping them out immediately. Everyone should have their PlayBooks next week for sure in their hands! All inside pages are 80# weight & gloss coated to help as much as possible against moisture damage. The outside cover is also glossy with an extra UV coating at 110# weight. They did this for the best possible durability within reason. Paul also had the font size enlarged to a #-10, he wanted a bit larger print for guys that are wiser! (half blind) He also opted for a durable core binding instead of stitching or glues. The reason for this is so you can open it up where they may need to quickly & it will stay open right there & not try to close on you! There are several blank pages in the middle & back of book for notes. Those pages say “notes” on them. They did their best to really put out a nice long lasting PlayBook!!! They wanted a Cadillac not a Volkswagen! Maybe that’s why it’s taking longer than expected?

This is book has gotten me gitty as a school girl!!!
