yeah i was shocked to see no deer tag too, aperently everyone got the memo this year was the year to apply in nevada, but i did pull a antelope horns shorter since im on the waiting list to apply for the big ones again, and my wife drew a antlerless elk tag too.
The Boss (that'd be the wife) got her doe antelope tag and her first cow elk tag. Now maybe she'll agree to buying a new rifle.
My youngest daughter got another junior deer tag. She wants to know if I'll be done mounting her last years buck before she kills her second one (ok so I'm a little slow).
I pulled a muzzleloader deer tag and another muzzleloader cow elk tag. I've got a date with a certain tall 4 point that I shot over the top of a couple of seasons ago.
A best buddy scored big with a deer tag (we'll be hunting together as we put in for deer as a party tag) and a California bighorn sheep tag. He got a desert sheep tag last year so I'm thinking his good mojo for sheep tags surely must be used up now.
As usual the first thing I think about when the draw results are in is heading out to the range for some shooting. Looking out the window right now I notice that the wind is blowing at 20 to 30 mph & it's snowing. Typical Memorial Day weekend around here. Gotta remind myself to send a thank you card to Al Gore and the rest of the global warming guru's.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
