I enjoyed the article as I hunt sometimes in the same 3 point or better unit . As a fote note , you cannot harvest cows any more . I seen less bow hunters last year and I’m sure this has something to do with this . I ride push my bike in the dark about 2 miles and get up top in the steeps . I came across 3 hunters the whole season and all on bicycles . This is the norm . I would offer the author a couple of suggestions as I have been doing this awhile . Get a fender rack and use your bike as a packhorse . Carry your game bags and a pack board on your bike . Take a survival machete with you as you might have to clear a trail to your elk . I carry one on those handle bar bow/gun racks . ( useless for anything else ) Carry spare tubes , as well as a air pump , patch kit and tools . Carry your strung bow attached to your back pack .It rides most comfortable and your body is it’s shock absorber . I made a couple of short parabuckle straps so I can quickly dismount and have my bow in hand . Lastly use a kick stand with a rubber boot so you can dismount and glass without having to lay your bike down . I came across workers clearing the sides of the roads last year and they would all stop to talk and give me information where they seen elk . “Your hunting with a recurve ? That’s cool !” I heard that a lot .

I liked that article an awful lot too. I think technically the elk out back my yard are Rocky Mountain Elk, as I’m east of the I5, but they sure act like Rosies.
I bought a Montana Scabbard last year. It isn’t going to work with a 68″ long bow without some modifications, but I have a while to do it.
