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.
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.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
