I circled around uphill to head them off, but didn't see them again. I went out again a for couple of days this weekend and saw a bunch of mule deer, but no elk. Maybe next year, and I won't pass up an easy shot like that again!

Its a hard lesson to learn that way, but one you'll now forever remember. If your interested in food, never pass on good safe legal shot. I did once and I'll never do it again.

If your trophy hunting well then never mind.

That's the truth, and I won't pass on a shot like that again. I wasn't trophy hunting and that 4x4 would have been ideal. At that moment, I was simultaneously thinking that the closer bull might be a big one and I would regret missing the chance, and I was thinking about it being the first day of the season and I was having fun. Wasn't sure I wanted the season to end so soon and I would have plenty of opportunities.

Default It's that time of year again.

2014 Big Game applications are due in a month ... don't forget! Online apps are great. Finished my section 201 Antelope and section 28 Cow Elk applications last night. The cow tag is a "B" lisence so if I'm successful, I can buy an over-the-counter bull tag too.

Pig / Turkey hunting the weekend of March 15 at my buddy's hunting lease in Junction, TX. Don't want to rub it in but I'll post pictures when I'm back!

We are making the switch to muzzle loading. We will at least put in as a group. I figure we probably wont draw in 34 our first year. Then hopefully we would get 1st season bull. But, are prepared to declined for that also since it would be our second choice. Which would put us into 2nd season (another winter expedition). Oh, well we have to try at some point.

Why are these guys so easy to find in the spring? Just hanging out on the driving range for the day. Some tard was even hitting balls? Course was closed.

Group muzzle applied for. Time to change it up and actually try to harvest a bugling bull for once.

2nd season Elk and 3rd Deer applied for. Hunting in my back yard as usual. Going to try to take my Elk this year with a pistol. But will not pass on a distance shot (rifle) as I'm really just in it for the food.

Teaser shot from this week. They are in the valley floors right now.
