This is quite a good year for me sofar first I got a bull tag now Ipulled a doe tag first one we have had in our camp since 97!Now if we can just get a shot at one of those 17 does we saw up there last year.
depending on whitch wildlife management unit that you apply for a tag in our camp unit only gives out 9% success rate so one in 9 should get a tag.We had 9 guys back in the mid 90s but there is only 4 of us now.They should give one to the camps for some guys seem to get all the luck.Camp next to us last year 7 guys 3 tags.
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....
