Does no one else hunt Blacktail? Cause this forum is DEAD!!!
I went out scouting the other day saw 4 deer total 2 of them bucks! The weird thing was he was blowing and grunting as if he was in the rut!?!?!
Ive been out elk hunting all week and have seen quite a few good looking bucks, I have also seen quite a few other hunters out there. Not too many out on foot which is a good thing for me. The weather here has been pretty bad the last week so hopefully it will clear up a little for the weekend, that way theyll come out a little more.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
