    Doesn't that kind of take all the fun out of it though when you get it right off the bat? It kind of takes the pressure off if you have a big fishing trip, but most people around here will set aside a week or more for a moose, sheep, or caribou hunt. We caught our fish on our annual trip last summer all on the first day, 75 or so salmon between 3 people, but then we kind of screwed around the following days fishing, except then having to get the 75 on ice and care for during the trip was kind of a bitch.

    Well, I spent a solid wee out early September chasing elk. Even got a shot off at 35 yards with my bow and blew it..... Bt the time I landed this buck I had already had about six weeks worth of hunting in. This was the second deer of the season for me as I got a doe early in archery the week before I was elk hunting... . Never did get that elk....for the third year in a row.
