Thanks for the compliments,it was a fun trip. "Awsome Thanks for sharing the pic. Did you get a group dicount on the taxidermy bill?"
The big one on the right was 4" short of b"n"c The younger guy on the left, did all the mounts, good price.
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....
