I got my 1st choice, Colorado either sex Ranching For Wildlife tag, and I also got my 1st choice either sex deer archery tag. I am also thinking that I will get my 1st choice pronghorn rifle tag as well and should know within days on that one.
Gonna be a busy fall & early winter that is for sure, as I am also planing on getting an OTC antlerless elk archery tag, and likely picking up a leftover doe deer tag and maybe an OTC bear if I can match one up correctly with one of my other tags!
That's what I really love about Idaho. It's starts on August 30 and runs through November 23. I will have all of september off from work to chase moose, elk, deer, bear, lion, wolf, and turkey. Oh september can't came fast enough!
I have always looked for ways to save money and gain skills. I have the firearms basics covered so I rarely buy firearms these days. But I do watch for bargains. Sometimes a little TLC with simple tools will let you bring an old gun back to life without investing a lot of money. One such find was a side by side 12 gauge marked “W. Richards” It is not from the fine English gun maker Wesley Richards, it is a cheap knock off copy probably made in Belgium about a hundred years ago...
