    I found out I got drawn for the 2010 Ky bull elk lotto!!!!!!!:D I'm told it's a once in a lifetime opportunity! I'm so excited I can't wait until Oct. I've already chosen a hunting unit & guide. I'm working on test loads for my old trusty Browning A-bolt .284 with 160 gr Nosler Accubonds.

    I have never used an Accubond bullet before and only know of one elk that was killed with one. The shooter said it performed well, I have always used Partions with great success. Anyway good luck and keep us imformed.

    Congrats on your draw - How many years of applications? Anyone know how many years on a out of state Oregon draw? I have one year of conservation points. Thanks R-BOLT

    Hey Bear, do you need a gun bearer or maybe a Sherpa. Pick me, pick me. Way to go you old dog. Shoot straight and stay safe. Joe

    bear's trip

    i very glad for you ..its great that the re-stocking in mid america is on the right track ..arkansas and oklahoma will hopefully have seasons soon, with the data ive read about ky. there is very good chance for a quality bull big 5x5 or 6x6 if the gods smile on you....good luck

    I want to say congrats on what must be a real tough draw!! We have lots of elk in AZ and it is hard to get drawn! My buddy did get drawn so I will be spending some woods time anyway. :) I can't imagine how it is to hunt elk in KY. Bet they can disappear quick in the heavy cover you have? Well best of luck on your hunt:)
