Fort a la Corne here we come

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

As I posted a few days ago, we applied for elk licenses in the Big Game Draw, specifying Fort a la Corne as our 1st choice (Greenwater, where we have hunted a couple of times in the past, was our 2nd choice).

Although my tag hasn’t yet arrived in the mail, according to the Big Game Draw website, we have been drawn. So as of early September, our intrepid crew of four hunters will be trying out a new elk hunting area. A scouting trip sometime between now and the end of August would probably be a good idea. I’ve already spoken with a couple of hunters who are familiar with Fort a la Corne, but if anyone has any hot tips on where to locate elk in that wildlife management zone, please contact me.

Vote for Earl

While at my brother’s place yesterday, a TV show was playing in the background. It was a show called “Canadian Idol”. I’m told that the idea is for the audience to phone in and vote for their favourite singer. Well, one of the contestants is named Earl. It’s a very noble name, so if you happen to watch next week, vote for him. OK?
