I put out my blind Wednesday of last week on some private an hour east of Denver. I think 34 hail storms have gone through since. I’m pretty sure it is sitting somewhere in Nebraska by now.

Starting to get excited.

I am ready but will be leaving a little later than first planned due to an unforeseen commitment. I am averaging softball sized groups at 60 yards and have all my gear laid out on the ping pong table. For now, I am in "hurry up and wait" mode. Best of luck to everyone.

Best of luck gents! I’m still 15 days out. As most of my areas are on public land, I’ll wait another 10 days or so to put my blinds out.

I'm getting ready to go up to Alberta to decoy one Sept. 16th. Decoying them during the rut can get real exciting:-)

I'm leaving in the morning for far western Wyoming. Plan to get blinds set a few days before the opener. It's been really dry, and no rain in sight, so waterholes should be active. Hoping the goats get used to our blinds quickly.

Checked the trail camera at the blind that I had activated on August 8th. For three days all I got was does and fawns. On 8/8 a doe came to drink at 12:40 am, Yes in the middle of the night. On 8/9, one doe at 1 pm, one doe at 4:33 pm, three does at 4:35 pm and one doe at 9:26 PM. On 8/10 a doe and fawn at 1:38 pm, five does at 6:10 pm. On 8/11, one doe at 10:46 am, doe at 2:14 pm, 5 does and fawns at 6:10 pm.

On camera two I had 1011 hits but 95% was the wind and grass blowing.

No bucks on camera but a few around. Animals still in buck and doe groups. Temps up to 102 degrees. Plan on setting in the blind all day for the first 2-3 days. Lots of water, food, reading material, head phone radio. Will be a Long day.

Not a lot of animals around on this cattle ranch where I am hunting, maybe 6-8 bucks and 12-15 does. But this is where the three water tanks are.

I am ready. Will sleep in the truck Tuesday night and other nights, ride the mt bike 1/2 mile to the blind. Bucks only until Sept 1, so I need a buck to come by. Two more days. my best , Paul
