    Yeah, I was thinking that I would probably try and go every other year too. But, the last time that I went was in 2013 and I just can't be doing that. I like being in the mountains too much.

    Shooting my bow as much as possible, getting as many pictures as I can on my Trail Cams to try to figure out the deer movement in my new stomping grounds I'll be hunting this season. Also making sure I have all the necessary gear to make me as comfortable as possible when I have the time to make those all days sits in late Oct. into Nov. if I haven't tagged out by then :).

    Just finished five mile run to cap off a personal goal of 60 straight days working out and shooting my bow. Bring on the mountains.

    So I finally ended up getting something bigger than a coyote. I was by myself when I shot this buck and he was at the very bottom of a small canyon. Less than a mile from the truck.. but a steep uphill packout. Happily, I was able to call a friend (jmbuckhunter) to help me pack it out.

    I'm thinking this should be my new game plan. I'll happily hike in, shoot and cut up game if I have people to pack it out. Lol!!!

    Thanks Oldcarp! All the big bucks I saw before season went underground or moved over to the impossible canyons.

    Now I am seriously in the market for a mountain horse. Even though it's been about 15 years since I've ridden a horse. :D
