Are you into technical climbing or peak bagging? I live on the west slope near Delta and theres tons of climbing with in an hours drive.

I have done some technical climbing (SAR training). I don't like being stuck in one spot - so I am more or a bagger - hopper - keep moving guy. My brother and I came right up the spine of CO last May. Though we didn't get out of the rig much (except to sleep) - I did see some nice peaks of type I would DEFINITELY like to bag.

We need to talk more.

Serious,
Back from Elk hunting and catching up a bit. Waterfowl here in Co is quite interesting. Our state includes part of the central and pacific flyways so the splits change and the bag limits change if you go over the cont. divide. Here in western Co there are good populations of ducks and geese that are residents but the big fun starts when the north gets weather and the birds head our way. Many of them stick around for a good portion of the winter. Hunting them is pretty much like anywhere else with the exception of some of our rivers. I like to hunt some of the remote areas of public ground that border the Gunnison river and that entails a bit of creative manuvering. Like hunting waterfowl out of a drift boat. It's great fun but you better be on the ball when you are drifting or you could end up upside down. Well talk more on this stuff right now I need to get unpacked from my elk hunt, get ready to head out after some upland birds and waterfowl...get ready to look for my Mtn. Lion.

Waterfowl gunning has been getting good - so I'm trying to gun by day and work by night. Nice theory - works sometimes kinda ... the reality of raising children, running businesses, providing at least `nominal' help to my wife, etc. kind of makes it run a bit ragged though ...

Back to topic ... through time most of my waterfowl hunting has been calling in mallards to decoys in somewhat tight situations (beaver ponds, sloughs, etc.).

Where I live presently it's been pretty much hard core limited-chances jump shooting.

I have friends, etc. who do the drift / water craft method and it sounds like fun and at times productive.

I keep seeing this name `Gunnison' ... and it brings feelings of warm interest to me.

If you get a chance send me a PM or your email address. We can talk further.
