In 2018 I hunted whitetails and mule deer.

From 2019 till today it has been only whitetails. Most of that was too busy at work. This year it was my car accident. I didn’t think my back would handle a mountain hunt.

Going forward we will see how things go.

Would like to hear hint and the wife wants elk meat and Buffalo meat. So we will see how it goes.

I laughed.

From: Buffalo1
Big Joe- you live in the "Promised Land" for hunting !! You are a very fortunate hunter. There is simply no place like Africa for hunting opportunities.
