Well I'm 3 days from the start of the late season archery deer hunt. I can't wait anymore!!! Last weekend I went with my dad on his general season coast elk hunt. We didn't see any elk but I saw 4 very nice blacktails. 2 of which I wish I could have harvested. One was a very wide and tall 3x3, he stood 15 feet from me for about 25 seconds before he took off. the other was at 40 yards and he was a very tall 4x4. I would have been happy with either of them. I think they just know when you can hunt them and when you can't. If it was deer season there would be no way they would have stuck around for so long. Anyways the weather is turning nasty. We have a big weather system pushing hrough right now then the temps are going to drop into the 20's for the weekend in the mountains with a fresh 2-3 feet of snow. That should get the deer down to where I hunt in the late season. With all of the deer I have already seen I'm really looking forward to the hunt and have a great feeling about this season.
