PA hunters

Anyone from Pa on here heading out for the archery opener on Saturday?  If you do let us know how you made out.  I'll be hunting the Lancaster area.

You get to hunt two states

You get to hunt two states this year!? Not fair. And you get the best of both worlds: both east and west. Good luck on filling your tag out there first. That might just take a little pressure off you when you get out here. I've found that hunting is a lot more stressfull when you haven't put any meat in the freezer yet that year. The stakes (steaks? haha) are just a little higher. I can see why coming out to CO might be a high stakes hunt regardless of how you do out there though. Regardless, you'll have a blast I'm sure. Just don't forget to take a second, look around at the beautiful landscape and remember that somewhere else, your coworkers are hard at work.

meat in the freezer

I've already started puting some meat in the freezer although it's not venison.  Our goose season opened up 9/1 so I've been freezing a few of those.  Now it's time to try and tag out on a whitetail (saw two 4 points...that's a 2x2 to you westerners) Big smile but they're not legal here.  This Saturday duck opens so I'll be out in the boat blind and hunting them until we leave.  Then it's to Co for Mule Deer and Elk.  Then when I get back goose and rabbit come in so I can finally get my beagles out again.  Of course I'll have to take a break from that to hunt bear in November followed by our rifle deer opener.  After that it's all rabbit and goose up through February.  I'll probably hit up Md too for some snow geese.  Unfortunately then the season's over for awhile come April....oh wait...no...SPRING TURKEY!!  LOL :\\\\:D/  Man...this is gonna be a rough year

You have got quite the year

You have got quite the year planned Bear. I did too until I landed a job that makes it nearly impossible to take time off during hunting season. I have faired better than I thought I would though and have been able to hunt during and take animals during muzzleloader deer season and a wyoming pronghorn season. I have my fingers crossed that I will be able to get out and help my mom on her first elk hunt come third rifle season here in Colorado.
