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.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
