    wreckless448's 2014 Season Thread

    I'm still 50 days from when tag applications start and my pre-season planning has already started. My brother in law are planing to hunt together, provided his bonus is big enough to get a bow. We were looking on Google earth trying to pick a couple of spots to set up a base camp. If the weather holds, we will load up the truck with my oldest two boys and go see how easily we can access the first spot.

    I have also started shooting regularly as in I don't think we are going to have a winter (only three snowstorms projected over the next couple of months). And depending on the next couple of months, I should be able to switch from 125 grain fixed broadheads to 100 grain expandable.

    The last phase of my pre-season prep is getting into shape. I have a home gym in the garage that I'll get back on when the temps ay night go up a little. I have cut out sugar in my coffee and have gotten out of the office a lot more so my "office weight" is starting to go away.

    I'll keep everyone up to date on my pre-season prep. Let me know what you are doing.

    Sounds good. How far are your walks and do you carry any weight?

    Its only about a mile right now. The mountain still has a bit of snow on it. I try to get myself up to 3 miles with about 20lbs. It isnt much but I do live at 5600' and there is a couple good hills I climb. In the summer I have a little fly fishing spot up the canyon I hike to and that helps to.

    Sounds like a plan OC. I know there are a couple of lakes that are a couple mile hikes in that I'm hoping my boys can make this summer.

    My boss and I were talking about kids in deer camp and he said it was some of their fondest memories and something that they still partake in to this day. That's what I'm hoping to do with my kids.

    43 days left before tag applications open up. Just had a storm roll through so I don't plan on shooting much. I have, however, possibly found a nice deer camp spot through a coworker and verified it using Acme Mapper.

    Wreckless good luck on your new hunting spot. This last storm sort of slowed down my walking and shooting

    I've been hiking around every other day or so. I have a couple of traps set so I 'have' to go out. Lol. Yesterday the snow about wore me out.

    I left the truck down by the road and hiked up there. Snow sure made it an adventure. I may need to get snowshoes one of these days.

    Jumped a half dozen mule deer that were bedded in the junipers. They ran right to my truck. Hmmmm.

    Just a few days ago the snow was pretty much gone from the south and western slopes.



    When I drove out of this area at dark, I had to stop and let about 200 elk cross the road in front of me.

    Starting a new project this week. Work keeps me in fairly good shape but mostly shooting the bow for now. My eating habits are getting better but don't touch my Mt. Dew!
    Love the photos! Stay warm up there!

    We had a storm roll through the last week. Temps are frigid at best, so no shooting this weekend.
