First time for a few of the guys and glad to be part of their experience.
I'll do a semi live hunt if cell signal allows.
Hoping to lay some eyes on Mule Deer for the upcoming September hunt.
Every time I fly out there is a different procedure for my bow.
Sometimes they want to open it, other times, all good.
I told the attendant that is was a bow, they weighed it and I was on my way to bag check. ( I often question the actual security, here is a good example )
Actually I prefer this procedure because I get to walk my case right to that location. TSA locks in place. Good to go.
Now hopefully I meet up with it in Denver.
Now on to baggage to retrieve ...... I hope my bow!
Crossed paths with this fella last year. ;)
First target animal showed up at camp after a long travel day and a quick Crown Apple and cranberry.
Good luck Treestand... Some big goats in that country. Don't shoot the first one ya see for our sake please?
Plenty of drinks. Great tip:
Dan handed out some of those " chill" rags to wear around our necks. After dipping them in the cooler, really makes a difference!
A few does in the distance and a decent Buck way off in the distance.
Real hot today, hoping for a change. So far very slow here, since about 8:30 am when I did see a mid 70's class buck.
He only offered a rifle shot. :)
I took the photo with my Nikon and zoom lens. He seemed 400 yards away.
This is a IPhone photo of the Nikon lens.
Any guesses what he would score ?
Nonetheless, fun to have him come in
We are sitting from 5 am till 8:00 pm and a majority of the activity is first and last light. Cody has has steady doe and fawn action keeping him entertained.
Although it's hot, it's a breezy hot. Walking in this am I could see dew on the sage and grasses which tells me that's where they may be getting their water from.
Maybe , just a hunch. I also watched the weather before arriving and the area has had some rain.
This has been a mental hunt for sure.
Lots of snacks, drinks, reading materials... get me through it. The lack of sleep was tough though.
That is not so bad at all.
Thx for following all !
