I don't think that you could catch me out in the woods on Colorado's opening archery day on Labor Day weekend. I did that once and never again, I never saw so many road hunters with a bow and arrows in the back of their trucks chasing anything that they saw with horns. Then getting back into the truck to find another one. Perhaps if I had a tag for a wilderness area but then you have to put up with the hikers and other nimrods out there.
I even like the opening for the ML hunt this year, it is a week later than usuall and from what I have seen on my scouting trips it should be a fun hunt for me.
To those of you on your way out good luck on your hunt.
I might go out but i wont shoot anything unless its a monster. We are going on the 5th thru the 12th for our actual camp but i might sneak up the hill and see whats happening this weekend. I got some private access so wont be running into the crowd.
I cant make it out till wed, but all this weather has really got the bulls fired up. I spent the last last 2 days up in unit 10 scouting and the big bulls are already chasing cows. They were out at noon today sun shining bright and bugling like crazy. I think I may have to cash in my PP next year
Really? Dang that seems early. Bow hunters are gonna be in for a good one. I have my tag there but not til Oct 1 rifle. Wonder what will be happening by then? I'd appreciate to hear any news from the unit if anyones in there.....not often you get to hunt it. Good luck bow hunters!!
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....
