Like most worthwhile things in life, elk hunting takes good planning.
My grandfather, Charlie Carter was a planner and a rather smart man. When we were planning our garden one spring, grampa gave us a few pointers for gardening. (Grampa wasn't a gardener, he was a cowboy, but well versed in many things.)
One of his pointers for gardening was, "You should never fertilize squash, pumpkins, cucumbers and the like."
When we asked why, he replied, "Well, it causes the vine to grow so fast that it drags the vegetables around and wears the hide off."
So much for today's gardening (planning) lesson.
