I started with an early AM yote hunt on day 2.

I left right out of the cabin and went below the frozen lake, about 1 mile into the timber, for my first set-up for calling.

I finally found a ground blind that I like and is very mobile for my style, of course made by Primos!

See my link above

Very adjustable for any design I needed.

Hey thanks

I've gotten really strict on my diet and intake of food. I'm dead set on staying under 190 during the winter so I don't end up loosing the same lb's every spring!! haha

Plus the GF is in Durango and comes on my trips and she is way slim and trim and is pretty much Vegan but adds some chicken, fish or some of organic my wild game meat to her meals.

_____________________________________________________

The shot opportunities are very Quick and short lived as these high mountain/timber Yotes come in on the sly and with lot's of cover, not like I'm watching them come in across a big sage brush flat or winter wheat field.....

I think the Decoy, and the motion of the call helped hesitate the 2 I did get a quicky shot at 1 each day's set-up.

I went with a Rust color T-neck for her arrival night.........Rufffff! haha

When it's this cold I like to use the window mount for my Digi-scoping.

It's so much faster than getting out and setting up the tripod......

Well, let's see if everything is working this early AM---------->

It's more about keeping everything nice and steady for the pic quality as the wind can get things slightly shaky on a tripod and thus not so good a pix by Digi-scoping.

Is that the new “Hoochie Mamas Gone Wild” tape in the center, Robb?? ;-)

Lots of history in that area, Indians, robbers, rustlers, miners. Tricia and I camped and fished down stream from the Little Hole last summer. Good times.

From: BULELK1

Hey Thanks!

No, but I think they used it filming.......t-roy! ha

Paul, I don't know if ya made down to Jarves cabin area but very kool stuff along that route from Little Hole.

Yes, I actually bought that lil blind for turkey hunting and elk hunting as I shoot most times from my knees and it's perfect for that type cover.

Good luck, Robb
