I just thought I'd share my Buck withya all. I shot this on the opening day for late buck. He was run'n with a couple does and a 3x. Real nice rack even with the broken off point on the left side. 18" wide and 16" tall. HUGE neck. Made my season this year!! Seeing as last year I was unable to hunt this area due to the flooding. Washed out my access. Anyways, hope ya all dont mind my droping in. BTW, anyone have any good info for a mule deer hunt in Montana?? I'd like to start scouting over there for deer and elk for this coming year.
Iceman, People i brougth were always talking and were cooking breakfast (bacon) and smoking before the early morning hunt. We just walk 1 mile to the hunting grounds. Scouted first and saw some big tracks. but no bucks showed up.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
