Well it looks like I will be getting some checks back in the mail as well. I had high hopes for the sheep tag as I've been putting in for most of my life but knew the goat was a non issue as this year will finally give me the three points I need to get back into the running.

if you need some help packing for this trip, just remember that i'm only an 8 hour drive from fort collins! i'ver got a sturdy back and strong legs and will glady carry your gear to the top for the small price of watching you shoot!
