    Smile 2012 Hunting Goals

    So what's on every bodies list to get done in 2012? Lets hear it!

    Here is my list at this time.... Tag draws could change things up with any luck!

    *Kill a spring bear. Doesn't need to be huge as I don't want any more bear taxidermy bills.

    *Scout and kill my personal best Roosevelt archery bull and help my boys do the same.

    *Pass on mediocre blacktails and kill a P&Y buck with my bow during gun season since archery season sucks where I live.

    *Kill a cougar!

    *kill a whitetail worthy of a head mount!

    Keep up with my daily workouts so I can have another birthday (71) and keep up with all the young guys!

    Draw Wyoming tags for Deer & Antelope.

    Draw Colorado Deer and Elk. All depends on Wyoming draw. If I draw Wyoming I won't apply for the Elk.

    Finalize my 2013 New Mexico guided elk hunt.

    April Texas hunt for pigs and turkey.

    Keep shooting Cowboy Action at least twice a month matches & win Colorado State Championship!!

    Those are some good goals. Colorado Cowboy, I hope you win that State Chanpionship.
    * Kill a spring gobbler with my bow, spot and stalk

    *Kill a spring bear if I draw a tag

    *Kill at least a 5 point bull on the archery hunt

    The biggest challenge of all

    *Draw and archery mule deer tag in my home state, so I can hunt the Wasatch Front in November.

    With the way Utah is changing their draw system the mule deer tag may be the biggest goal of all.

    My goal is to find a good mule deer buck during the summer months in the high country, and then kill him with my bow. I would really like to find something in the 170+ region, but this will be a very tall order in an over the counter region.
    Hunt hard, and trust your instincts
