Never even got into the fishing swing this year, and the garden has been for doodoo, so I have been livin, breathin, eatin hunting since my elk camp ended last Dec!
I did have a couple pretty sweet late waterfowl hunts, and a day & a half at chasing the longbeards, but in over 8 months time, that just does not cut it!!!!
Then, especially since late May when I learned I drew my 1st choice archery deer tag (w/ ZERO pref points by the way!), ...my mind has been wound-up tight and spinning! ...then, you gotta see my pup! She's unbearable right now! Two-a-day training sessions doesn't help her any! Now she's just in sick shape and it's still three weeks till she can chew on a bird! (Hmmm? ...Eurasian doves are year round?)
Then I ended up snaggin a hidden cow elk tag with my deer hunting buddy & his sons, which has me royally pumped up for that chance at meat for the beast!!!
The anticipation was simply killing me slowly from the inside, so today I decided I am going to trade in my muzzy pronghorn for an OTC Archery tag!! …then I have an excuse to sneak out next weekend!!! Yeah!!!
Uh oh!!! …that means I better start shooting that bow like I keep saying I need to do!!!
Good luck and safe travels, to all those beginning their hunting season a week from today! (Here in CO that is!) …I am going to have to wait for the 19th, but I have GOT to stalk SOMETHING!
