I applied for nebo and manti elk because they're close by.
I applied for the premium Henrys tag because as bad as the odds are, it's pretty much my only chance to pull that tag.

I just spent $30 on expo tags. Is there another college student out there like me that had a feeling of regret for wasting money that could pay for 1/8 of a textbook? I guess those feelings will go away when I kill a bison or a Henry Mountains deer...

Ok bamacpl, that made me laugh. When you see some of us older hunters shaking our head it is not the first stages of Parkinson's it is things in your post You need to add ear gauges and piercings.

Just seeing those skinny jeans, white rimmed glasses and flat brimmed hat fill me with anger!

Well, I went and validated and walked around the expo today. It was great, I walked over from my office. (No paying for parking) I had a free ticket to get in. I was there right at the beginning, so got a free Skre hat from them since we were one of the first people through their booth. My brother paid for my way overpriced Diet Coke. I saw some awesome animals, had a great time chatting with some good friends, got a free hat, and didn't spend a penny doing it!

Being only Thursday morning, the number of dudes wearing skinny jeans with beards and flattys was much lower than it will be Friday night and Saturday. But I also didn't spend much time in celebrity corner.

I put in for 9 hunts total. That is double what I usually do. I apologize ahead of time for anyone that wasted $5 on the hunts I'm going to draw. I won't reveal them just yet, but I may need to do a poll which elk tag I'm going to keep and which one will be turned over to the next in line.

I blew enough to buy an entire 1/5 of a textbook. I'd have normally spent less, but I'm finishing up this May. I figured I'd draw myself an early graduation present. The regret won't hit me unless the results are posted and I come up empty. Even then, I get over it pretty fast. I'd rather know I didn't draw than wonder if I could have drawn (as dumb as that probably sounds).

Hang in there! If there's one thing I know, it's that a man needs a few dreams and distractions in order to survive the rigors of college life.

Good luck!

Thanks bama. Picked up my starter kit tonight. My beard is good. Just need to buzz my full head of hair and I'm ready to rock!

I'm headed in on Saturday, I should fit right in.

You know, I've noticed with some skinnier pants I've purchased recently the uh "advertisement" of my goods has resulted in an uptick of positive female attention which in turn makes my wife a bit possessive and handsy... So I'll admit, I've had to stop bashing on tight fit pants a bit unless the dude has scrawny chicken legs that make even the skinny jeans look baggy! And bamacpl, where'd you find a pic of bowgy's secret lucky hat? Maybe if I'd managed to steal it during my hunt I wouldn't have ended up with a broken scope!
