Most of us got out tags.....so our group will have a total of 8 tags...not counting some that will up there with us but not camping with us. My wife and I both drew two doe tags each..so we should have plenty of antelope meat for some more summer sausage and jerky.
I just checked the results when I read this and found out that we did in fact draw our any antelope tags as expected with three preference points. We didn't apply for any doe tags as I was short of money at the time but if it's anything like normal I will still be able to pick some up as leftovers later when they go on sale.
Only 3 months to go and we'll all be hunting again.
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....
