I just spent this past week over in the Gila at my hunting lodge getting it ready for the September 1st Archery elk season. Every morning and afternoon I spent scouting, the past few weeks it has really dried out and I was worried that the bulls wouldn't finish with good horn growth. But I believe all is well I saw approximately 20 bulls and some of them had completely stripped their velvet and some were not rubbed at all. Most all seemed to have good tops and last night we glassed an 8x7 that  is a 380 class bull. He was not rubbed at all and a smaller 330 bull that was with him was completely stripped ! Anway if it stays dry the waterholes should be excellent the first season. Next week I will be getting our trail cams out so hopefully some good pics to come.  Shoot strait!    Van Hale
