Awesome! I haven't counted the days until archery antelope opens here in CO, but it is probably about the same number of days away as your seasons, and then archery deer here opens a week or two later.

We'll be a little restricted in 'time' because they both are in school, obviously, and play football on Saturdays. Our trips will be leaving after the games Sat. and arriving late... early Sunday morning hunts and with luck maybe Sunday Evenings... fortunately my ranch is only about a 1.5 hour drive from hom so their Mom can be sure they'll be in bed on time for school on Monday. <smile>
Good luck! Keep me up to date and I'll do the same. - JamesJM

December/January will pull deer in from some distance away to feed on the easy to get to food.
I killed one of my nicest bucks off of a very small patch of soybeans that was left after rains created a...
