I really never thought that I wouldn't welcome a warm up, but right now it's the last thing I want to see. As we are heading west to Montana for the firearms elk opener I would rather see a little snow and colder temps. But that's not the case, the high forecast for Saturday is 67 degrees, which is probably the day you are reading this.

Wishful thinking is the elk won't be up too high but I'm thinking they will be. This year the zone we hunt is also open to antlerless elk and after having the freezer full we gotten pretty spoiled so, as much as I would love a bigger bull, I will be happy to get the opportunity to shoot a cow. They are still huge and the meat is even better. But I'm still really hoping for a bull.

We will be hiking out and tenting it this year but if I get the opportunity to get internet I will check in with a report. If not I will make it up with a full story in a couple weeks when I get home. Got to go, the mountains are calling my name.
