i know there are some areas of Cuyamaca that burned in the Wildfires. I have a couple of friends that had tree stands for bow season up there. I don't know how successful they were in the past, or what areas of Cuyamaca they hunted (I didn't ask the location of their hunting grounds). I'm certain that Every year someone takes a buck out of there. They must.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
