A new plan

Well, I had to compete with 28 other trucks last weekend for opening day.  So, I have come up with a new plan.  I was going to take a week off this month, but now I have decided to spread it out and instead take a day off each week for the whole month.  That will let me get out mid-week and not fight the crowds.

So, I willl be headed out Tuesday to try and fill my tag. Wish me luck!

Great plan!

That's the plan that will fill your tag!  I don't know about you but if I took an entire week off to hunt, my wife would have way too many things pile up on my to-do list! Yes

Taking a day off per week should keep it interesting and give you an opportunity to concentrate on a specific area.  Go by yourself so you can stay as long as YOU want and only make moves based on YOUR intuitions!  EP is a great mid-week spot if you can sit for 3-4 hours! Wink

Update?

I got a couple of text messages this morning while I was in a meeting and the last one just said "Big Forky!" but now the phone goes straight to voicemail! 

Hopefully you are dragging or cleaning him!

Inquiring minds want to know!!!Yes

No, I didn't get one, but

No, I didn't get one, but there is a "Big forky" involved in the story.  Just posted a story about it under "Go Figure"!!

You will have to accept my

You will have to accept my apologies ha. I am not out of the stage where every deer is a trophy. Or maybe it is more that I have progressed to that point. Don't get me wrong, I really want to take a big buck or bull every once and a while but meat is meat and it is the memories that are worth more than anything. If you have a good memory of taking a fork-horn than that is what it is all about. Good luck vermonster... I hope you get him!

I hear ya.  However, I have

I hear ya.  However, I have only shot 4 deer in my life, and I really, really like the meat.  Plus, in San Diego county, the success rate in a good year for rifle is 10%, so any buck becomes a trophy.  Plus, these mule deer out here, alot of them actually top out at a forky.  Sort of a trait they have here.
