I'm really interested in your Ibex hunt. Have you gotten any scouting done yet or been able to see any?
The elk license I drew this year is basically once in a lifetime as well but it sure is tough getting as much time as I would like. I've always hunted the same areas so real scouting wasn't needed until now. It takes me over 2 hours to get there and then learn where to start.
Still 76 days to 3rd season in Colorado. Seems like a long way off still but those are our tags and no other choice. Small game is not an option this year at least not before elk/deer season. At least next spring I will be bear hunting in Idaho so it will not be as long between hunts next year. Only 268 days to spring bear!
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
