"Founder's 2017 Hunt Adventures"

As with year's in the past, I'll have a Utah deer tag and hopefully deer tags in Colorado and Wyoming. I expect to spend most of my scouting time this year in the Wyoming high country, with a few days in both Utah and Colorado. Primary focus will again be in Wyoming if I can draw a tag.

So far this year, I've only gotten out to look for shed antlers for 4 days. I bit off a kitchen remodel during the winter and have been continuing my education, so I haven't had a lot of extra time. Below are some pics from my shed hunt outings.

As for preparation for backpacking this summer, I've been hiking with a weight vest on the mountain above my house. Trying to get at least 1-2 1500+ vertical foot climbs in each week to build the leg strength.

Haven't shot my gun or bow yet this year. I really need to get on that!

I got lucky and drew a Lone Peak/Box Elder Peak/Timpanogos goat tag! I'm awfully excited. The hunt runs September 11th to November 30th, so it's a long hunt. I'd like to put in some time archery hunting, so I definitely need to break out the bow now.
It's a real physically demanding hunt. The hunt areas have no roads to the very highest country where the goat will likely be. Lots of vertical feet of climbing. I have some rough, tough backpacking ahead of me.
I'm hunting Mountain Goats!!!!

I got into the high country looking for mountain goats on Friday. 4600 vertical foot climb, 10+ miles......it was a long hike. I felt great going up, it was the decent that hurt. It was fun to get up there though. Saw 9 goats, but all were nannies and kids.
Saw a group of bucks too......

I hit the highcountry for a few days of muley scouting this past week in Wyoming. While up there, it felt like I was seeing less bucks than normal, but after getting back home I checked and in the same area, for the same amount of time last year, I saw more bucks this year. Crazy.
On this scouting trip I found one buck that should end up in the mid-170's and 28+ wide. I didn't find any real slugs.
The bugs were bad and the heat was tough. It was a good trip though.
Watch the video........

Finally a little video to share from my last scouting trip. Found a couple good ones. One of the bucks has some extra stuff going on that's really cool.
Overall, I looked at about 40 bucks on the scouting trip.

Another few days in the high country dealing with bugs, bugs and more bugs. Plus heat. Found 55 bucks though. Three were better than all the others.
