I'd take her!

Here is the nice, curious gal I got on my first trail cam.  Right before dark.  The second one is one skipping through before the camera went off.

If you want to kill a deer in that state...

I'm sure you already know this, but you need to head north, way north to get into better deer country.

Yeah, I will eventually put

Yeah, I will eventually put in for the G and X zones, but for now it's local.  I have a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old.  Not too long till the older one can go with me. Plus, I have my hunt for next year planned.

Which brings up another question.  I keep talking about doing my Colorado hunt in the late October overlapping deer/elk rifle season next year.  However, do the archery seasons overlap?  I know I would be severly limiting my range, and my success, but there would be less hunters. I hadn't thought about that until a buddy asked me today.

The deer and elk archery run

The deer and elk archery run the same time here in Colorado.  This year it is from August 27-September 25 in most areas, and the muzzle loader hunt for both in right in the middle.

Just realized my second photo

Just realized my second photo up there was the wrong one.  There is nothing skipping through in that photo.  This one is the other one.....

Hopefully she shows up for

Hopefully she shows up for you again when the season is open. I haven't archery hunted for a long time now but when I did I was only able to harvest does. I tried to get a buck and missed a couple but never got it done.

Good luck I hope you get one.
