Well the sucking slowed a micron. I talked to my Deer Outfitter. Told him my tale of woe about elk hunting. He told he was headed out for his personal elk hunt last Friday. No details were were texting.
He told me he does get a cancellation every now and again, and I was the only one he had this year. Said he would call if he got another. He was not optimistic, which is better than him just saying flat NO.
