If youre an elk hunter, you probably dont need anything to get you motivated for hunting season, and if youre an archer, youre probably already counting the days until the opener.
To tide you over and get you tuned up, Elk101.com and Extreme Elk Magazine are presenting 2012 Extreme Elk Hunting Event Saturday, Aug. 4, at Centennial High School Performing Arts Center at 12400 W. McMillan Road in Boise.
Were packing a season worth of elk hunting excitement into one weekend, organizers said.
