    If anyone finds out where and what outfitter he got this elk at please post.
    I am really curious to find out.

    REASON: I just saw an article on Realtree.com the other day talking about how tough it is to be Michael Waddell. REALLY??? I doubt anyone on this site would not trade what they are doing to have his job. Let's see: get paid to hunt 6 months a year, get set up with some of the best outfitters and land out there who have scouted and scouted and scouted for you before you get there so that you get a crack at a monster which in turn makes there outfit look great for TV. They pick stands just for you and do not let paying customers anywhere near them so as not to foul up your hunt before you get there. You might say of course, it is all about business, I agree with that but I am sick of hearing about what great hunters these guys are the (WADDELL<BLANTON<JORDAN<POTTS<ETC<ETC) they are sat in these great locations without doing any leg work. If I had my choice of hunting an unknown area without an outfitter and doing it the hard way I would take any one of you guys on this site who do it the hard way every year before I took one of these so called PRO HUNTERS. Is it really that hard to be these guys??? Would you trade your day job ??? Would you write an article about how tough it is for you??? Tough is what all of you guys do every year--work a full time job, take care of your family, and find a minute of time to get into the woods and still be successful even if it's only a doe or a spike, yet when you turn on the tv you get too see these guys shooting B&C deer every day,talking about there trophy deer management with their staged recoveries on camera, living the dream and yet somehow complaining about it. I'm not saying that is what this guy GILLINGHAM is doing but I think that if I shot an elk of that caliber I would have a different look on my face than that, heck look at the pic of me and my 9 pt from last week.

    The majority of us know that these shows are for our veiwing pleasure and most know that if they had to do all the work them selves..there wouldn't be any shows for us to watch.No body twists our arms to watch/buy their shows/dvd's and besides...on a crappy day when there isn't much to do or right before the season starts..it's a good way to get charged up.
