what your living room starts to look like a few days b/4 you go on that out of state hunt.
Good Luck, and most of all enjoy the experience and time there
DIY, Public land like 95% of my 60 years of bowhunting. I started organized archery in 1956 & bowhunted Illinois 1st EVER Deer season in 1957 & killed my 1st Deer in 1958. I have uaed a few outfitters but was required by law (Canada Bear & Caribou). Drop camp Elk twice in my younger years. This will be my camp.
Good luck, John!
You going to Wyoming? What unit? Good luck to ya!
73. Burned 5 points as it's my last (I think) speed Goat hunt. Normally I don't shoot Does but I did get A Buck & lucky draw Doe tag. IF a Doe presents a decent Longbow shot, that's what I'm going to use for a Doe.. Buck, ehhh, compound more than likely.. This was my set up 1st time I went in 2010 at age 68 . I only had 3 days to hunt & missed a Buck at 35 & killed a Doe at 20. 2nd time, missed a Buck that spooked as I released & then it rained & rained & I headed home after 4 days. THIS time I have NO time limit. I told the wife I'm going until I fill both tags or the season ends. Guess how that WENT OVER. I have a taller blind this time (learned a lesson).
My 3rd & last day, late morning Doe in 2010 (my 1st ever Antelope hunt). She went maybe 60 yds. I'm ready..
Best of luck to you John. Safe travels and hunting. Looking forward to your post in future days.
2 shots at 30 yds with Broadheads tonight. Tweek 40 tomorrow, what I feel will be my longest out of a blind. 20 is Dead on. My poor target, I know. Hey it works & has for years..
I think I see a hamblaster or two in that target ! No matter, you oughta see mine. :)
Good luck, I'll be leaving in about 30 days for Wyoming too.
Grandkids are the ham blasters (10-11-16).
Good luck John always enjoy your stories and your old photos

Getting the bow dialed. We are good at 50 I think. Just need to fletch the new arrows up and repair the old ones ive been shooting and then its off to antelope camp for a couple days next weekend in south dakota
dakotaduner-lets hope I get some "new" photos on this trip. Animalkiller, I want that group at 40. Good Luck... This is one, one of my buddies took on our last trip, public land. I hope I can do as well this trip.
My last 4 tonight with BHs at 40, it's hell to get old.. Best I could do fellas. I'm outa here in the AM. Anyone else going after Speed Goats I say be safe, have fun & ENJOY. As I say, Kills will be forgotten but memories of campfire friends will last forever.
My buddies just texed & said hunting was extremely tough, These guys are all veterans (with Antelope hunting too) & super shooters. STILL, they managed 2 Buck & 3 Does.
