Just screwing around in Wyoming and Montana after my brothers wedding.
We did get to do some other catch and release stuff while out with a fisheries biologist buddy from college. Seemed like we caught more trout than I've probably caught during the rest of my life combined.
experimenting with audio on these. The first video is that same big bull from the first set of photos above. Second video was back in late July, not this past weekend. Basically trying to learn how to cover up my loose tongue.
Thanks again for more great pictures. Even the ones you call your crappy ones are better than most of mine. It seems I have a much harder time finding game animals to put in the middle of most of mine.
Great bulls. My seasons only three weeks out now and big bull pictures are not helping me out at all. Another scouting trip planned for this Saturday in a much smaller piece of public land in an unlikely area, but I know they have been there in the past and it would be very unlikely to see another hunter there. I figure it's worth spending at least a half a day to see if there's any there now.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
