I got i nice buck to deal with, he was in a tuff spot to get to in archery season. I can let the air out of him from across the ridge in rifle season. I cant go for a couple weeks though, I'll get him in Oct. or one of his buddies. I have two D8 tags to fill.
Yeah, that's my plan. I hunt A-22 till D-16 opens, then hunt that for the month, then pick up A-22 again after the holiday. I like it better late season because the weather is much cooler, deer seem to move more.

Atleast here in Colorado, there isn't really signs of the heat letting up. We actually just broke a record last week. We were at 92 degrees in late September. What in the world? That is not what I would consisder to be awesome hunting weather... BY ANY MEANS. Hopefully we will get some good cold fronts during the rifle seasons. Here's to that inch and a half of snow during the night before opening morning!
Well, you asked for the weather and it is finally here! How is the hunting going now? The northern zones have been doing fairly well based on what I have been reading on the other forums. I would guess that the southern zones should start picking up real soon!
All of this talk about elk season is really leaning me more towards putting in for an out-of-state hunt in the near future!
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
Making your own maps of human and deer trails, and different types of foliage such as group of pines,...
