I am all about Deer, Elk, Bear, Kitty cats, yotes, Grouse, been wanting to try turkey hunting but just have not had the oppurtunity yet. and this all is done in the state of Washington. although i have hunted in Oregon when i lived there. we would head up to the sled springs area for deer and elk. Love it over there.
Our licenses in California start on July 1st and the first season that is open for me is rabbits. So I usually start off with a couple of rabbit hunts followed by archery deer, doves, quail, general (rifle) deer season, 2nd archery season and band tail pigeons, then more quail and rabbits until the end of January. That's it until the end of March when spring turkey kicks in.
Pigs are available year-round and I think this is finally the year I break down and go after some fresh pork!
I always have my eye open for an opportunity at taken down a wiley coyote but haven't sealed the deal yet in Cali.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
