This blind Jason built is 6'x6'x6'. It's allowing me to get my morning workout in. This is the first leg of the highly elusive Colorado goat slam.

Dad & I hunted that area with Fred Eichler a few years back & it was tough. Lot's of goats but no water hole action what so ever. Probably just a wet year. Keep us posted!

Headed down to see how much rain we got. If to wet we will try some spot and stalk. Jason donates a hunt every year to the CBA and a elk hunt to the RMEF.

From: Paul@thefort

Not a PY buck, Maybe in the 12 inch range. Ears are generally 6 inch long for comparison. With some mass, the horns should be in the 14 in length range to make PY.

Stalking was cut short today as we got chased off the Prairie buy a very violent rain and hail storm. I did not get a shot but came close 6 or 7 times. I saw the largest Antelope Buck I have ever seen today and had him under a hundred yards three times. Jason thinks he would be 85 in Plus. there is just so much water everywhere I packed up and headed to Kansas to do some prep for Whitetail hunting I'm going to try to get back in late September to try to decoy during the rut.
