I have always really enjoyed reading the hunt adventure challenges. Love the whole process of scouting, prep, and finally the hunt. I was hoping this year I would be headed to the Book Cliffs with an archery deer tag. Not only did I not draw that tag with 8 pts I got my last choice and now have a Box Elder archery deer tag. I'll get a general archery elk tag as well too. I still have an antelope draw I'm waiting on from WY and I put if for a late season buck hunt in ID with super low draw odds. My main other hunt assuming my dad is up for it will be rifle elk hunting in Idaho. He just finished up his chemotherapy in April and isn't bouncing back too rapidly so he's not sure how he'll feel by then. He lives in Idaho Falls so hopefully he be up for a scouting trip soon.
I named this adventure challenge making lemonade because we all want those dream tags but this season is about the rest of the years when we don't draw and end up with over the counter tags. It's about making lemonade when the draw gives you lemons.
Today was my first time out to the Uintas to check up on a zone I had a tree stand in a couple years ago. Still a lot of snow up high but the elk are already there so that is a good sign.
Here are my two scouting buddies. They had to stay in the truck when I was shooting my bow today. You can see how they scrutinize my shooting form.
Thanks for reading.
