D9 is a premium tag???
It sure seems that way at times, doesn't it? :)
Depends where you're at......I've seen them rubbed out by the 3rd week of August in Northern Arizona while others are in velvet until the 2nd week of September in the high-country of Colorado.
Wow, some mythical posts here for sure.
To the original poster; long distance shooting is not necessary out West to be successful. In fact, it lends to a higher percentage of wounding, IMO. ...
Columbia Blacktail (from the A zone region) develop much earlier than mule deer, etc. They usually are fully rubbed out by the end of July.
Nice 3x4, BSA, congratulations. It doesn't "look" too hot either.......although it probably wasn't cool by any means. :)
It's the very next post.
How about this one MM:
"Storm clouds are building above the timber line
The lightning's flashing across the mountain side
The thunder's rollin' down the canyons of his mind
Somewhere beyond the...
I believe that would be "Daydream Cowboy".
I knew I liked you MM. :)
Definitely above and beyond....well done guys!
Another CO high-country camp
I'm a bowhunter.......I have nothing against firearm hunters.....I've just never hunted animals with anything but a bow and arrow. It's all I know. So, no I would not take both.
Taking a break in my CO mule deer camp at 11,600'
Over the years, I've been able to get my pack weight down to 54 lbs for a 10 day mule deer hunt at 12,000'. Most of the wright comes from food to sustain the amount days in the high-country.
I've bowhunted it every year for the past 30+ years. Not as many deer in the desert as there used to be, but still a fun hunt and great time of the year to be out there.
I have done it several times on some of my archery hunts.......I always let the local game warden know what I'm doing. Never been an issue and 100% legal.
For this year, yes. They are due at the same time as the deer draw.
I think far too many hunters equate high demand units (lots of PP's needed) with high probability of trophy critters. Most will be disappointed when they finally draw. JMO.
Good looking wild calico hog, Tim. I love the look of it!
Is that a free ranging hog or a penned raised one from Big Horn Canyon Ranch?
I'm fairly certain he was being sarcastic, Bkypreos.
Watch them until they bed......wait for the thermals to switch and be consistent.......sneak into their bedroom with your boots off......make the shot when it counts.
