Most of you probably know that I got drawn for the TN Elk hunt. For all of the people that say that this drawing is "rigged", it isn't. I'm just a regular person living the "dream" right now in terms of elk hunting in TN. I still can't believe that I got drawn.

A lot of people asked for me to take pics, give details of the hunt, etc. which I plan to do. I will use this thread to post updates and hopefully some kill pics of a giant TN elk. \:\)

The hunt starts a week from today on 10/20 and lasts until 10/24.

Here is where I stand now:

Shortly after getting drawn, I was contacted by a gentleman asking if I would like to hire a guide. I had not even thought about that and had not planned on it at all. I have not been guided since I was a kid, and my pride wouldn't let me do it as I wanted to do it all on my own. I then got to thinking that even though I can hold my own in the deer and turkey woods, I don't know squat about elk hunting or Royal Blue and really don't have the time to spend scouting and researching that I need to. I also considered that this is a once in a lifetime deal to get an elk tag in TN and not a time to be letting pride mess it up. I talked to a bunch of folks about what they would do and long story short, I ended up with a guide. He has guided someone every year of the hunt with outstanding results. The hunt will also be filmed as well which is way cool.

I have checked and double checked the zero on the rifle so good there. I will be washing and packing clothes all week this week and will head out on Sunday some time to prepare for what I am considering a hunt of a lifetime.

Stay tuned here for further updates.........
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

Awesome, and I think getting the guide for a hunt of a lifetime was a good move.

BWAAAAAAAAACan't hardly stand the anticipation!!
Some hunt for racks, some hunt for roasts. I hunt for sheer joy; the aforementioned items are merely fringe benefits.
