Pretty cool, but what are the odds for drawing a tag there?
I actually used to see them on the 70 west of Denver. My buddy went to CU in Boulder for 5 years, and I'd go visit every spring. We'd always go skiing in Winter Park, and I remember heading up the 70, just before we kicked north on some road. A couple different times they were right down on the edge of the road, I assume eating the salt.
Always ewes and young males, but still pretty cool.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
