Black powder 2012 my venture into the unknown

 want to say thanks to everybody that has givin their word to me on hunting in colorado. 

We saw sign of deer on every outing.

Our first day of the hunt, ten minutes into our journey we scared a nice buck out of the hills and deep into the forrest not to be scene again. Our second day of the hunt we saw 4 nice does making their way threw a meadow.

Our first day we got on the mountain at 8 and our second day we hunted dusk,  4- sundown.

Our third day we arrived an hour before sunrise to the trailhead. Saw two bear cubs scurry across the road about two miles from the trailhead.

At first light we were on the trail, powder dry and ready, power belt ready to harvest and primer set. We set off into the forrest, ready at all times. We weren's the first one the trail, one hundred yards or so ahead of us we spotted an archery hunter sporting a long bow. The good word was that a good buck had been harvest first day/first light of opening day muzzleloader from this same area of the unit. However there were still some bucks left for the harvest. 

1/2 mile from the car, a quick spot and stalk, my first experience big game hunting
