I'm on a personal boycott: I've stopped watching hunting shows until they show the shooter packing out a 100#s on his own back--and making 2 trips that last into the night.
I'm a meat hunter. I love the flavor of elk (and deer), but just getting out into the backcountry for 5-7 days is heaven enough.
I have huge respect for bow hunters, but I"m too old to learn a new skill set like that! You kids are real hunters. Muzzleloading is the closest I'll get.
good luck to you all this year
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.
