    Good luck. Did you get enough snow to track if needed? We still have a couple 7 days,15hrs and a few seconds but who's counting?

    So far, I have been given two whole deer, two hind legs, and all four legs from deer taken during bow season. I watched a doe eating from by bait station this afternoon. Gun season starts a week from tomorrow.

    One week left here to. Who needs snow to track when you drop them where they stand.

    That is big! Our whitetale bucks here in n/w Texas max out at 125-150. Not until you get closer to God's county. Lubbock. Then we get into Mule's.

    Our gun season opened last weekend. 80+ degs. Hot!!! No movement!!! But the call I got tonight was pre-rut has started. And I can't go this weekend. But next weekend I will be there, and it should be good huntin.

    I just watched a six pointer walk across the field out back here not five minutes ago. If I didn't need to get up from here and make some biscuits and gravy I might have plugged that dude!

    Nov 15th, that be the day. Then another week before bear opens. We worked around the barn setting up the skinning racks and the cutting room, so we're about as ready as it gets. Also sighted in the new 30-30 I picked up Friday..Can't wait.

    My tag starts Wednesday! Took the rest of the week off work and can't wait to spend some time still-hunting in the mountains.

    Took a nice whitetail doe and a 6x6 buck in the first
    30 minutes. The doe weighed out at 130# dressed
    which is decent for here. The buck was 205#.

    2 more tags left for next weekend...........

    If you buy 10 tags ($20) you can harvest 10, no limit
    until the sections tags are gone. There are always a
    thousand or more unused every year.

    I usually take 4 and load the freezer. Puts a nice
    dent in the grocery bill.

    I had a herd of 25 to 30 deer come running by and at
    one point had three or four 4X4's, a couple 3X3's and
    10 or 12 does. This after shooting my two. I was out
    of the stand by 12:40 (40 minutes after opening).

    If I'd only had a banana clip for the 270!!

    Man! Here I am, used to live in Wisconsin where you'll kill deer with a flyrod if you're not careful on your backswing . Now I have to spend two months getting in shape to hoof through a thousand feet of elevation change for a "close" shot of 200 yards. Still it's like fishing, bad day hunting beats a good day working every time! Enjoy that venison, I'll try to play catch-up this week!

    That is indeed the bottom line!! The thought of hunting
    in the mountains is something to truly envy! Have fun.

    Ben, Where do you hunt? over there(no secret spots!)? I hunted the west slope alot as a kid and will be heading out to my sisters yard for a drawn cow tag later on.

    Sundance, congrats on your harvest. I sure like it when a plan works out!!!

    We too get 4 tags ea for free as landowners and can buy as many $6 doe tags we want(well until they run out if that ever happened). I saw close to 30 deer today and had some big hooved brute dug up my newly planted yard last night. He's gonna pay for that!!
    The goal here is to get my deer off the porch drinking a cup of coffee and reading the newspaper, and me still in my shorts! Maybe someday.

    I went out scouting today and the rut is starting strong here. Lots of scrapes and rubs after not much a week ago. I wont be able to sleep the rest of the week!! Opener this Sat

    Ben,

    You got to get off the front range. We have lots of Mule Deer and Elk right out the back door. Took a big doe Friday...shot it from up hill, walked down, gutted it then went to the house got the truck and drove to it, backed the truck up to it and brought it home...cooling as we speak. Total time from leaving the house to bringing home the bacon right at 2 hrs.

    Got a herd of about 100 elk every morning about 400 yds from here on BLM. Wait...wait...yep...I hear them calling you Ben.
