Hello all. It's been quite a few years since I've done the HAC. Tons of things have changed in my life since I last updated you all. I think in my last HAC my wife and I had just gotten engaged. We've been married almost 4 years now. We had our 1st child 2 years ago and just recently had our second 3 months ago. Both are happy fun little kids. My son is a hyper little guy but it seems like he's really into fishing this year, so hopefully that'll continue and he will like hunting as much.
I just submitted my vacation requests at work after knowing what happened in the Wyoming draws. It's looking like I'm in for an awesome year. Here's what the season looks like for me.
-Mid September Colorado , Dad muzzleloader buck and cow, Brother muzzleloader cow, I didn't draw so will buy otc archery elk. I have 5 days to hunt.
-End of September Colorado, I drew 2nd choice muzzleloader buck antelope. 4 hunt days.
-1st of October Wyoming, My buddy from North Dakota his daughter and myself all drew deer and antelope tags. 8 days to hunt.
-Mid November Colorado, 4th season buck deer I'll be hunting all 5 days of the season.
Overall I'm pretty excited. I've never hunted bucks 4th season before so that'll be new. My buddy from North Dakota hasn't hunted pronghorns in quite a few years so he is excited for that. His daughter hasn't hunted mule deer or pronghorns so I'm hoping she can tag out. My buddy hunted elk and mule deer for the first time last year. He got lucky and drew a reservation tag for mule deer in North Dakota and killed a cool old buck, then went on to Montana a week later and killed a little bull and a giant 200 inch muley. Him and his daughter also just got back from Canada where the both shot their first black bears. I'm hoping his luck will rub off on me.

This is the buck I took last year on a leftover tag. My unit this year borders this unit, but more public land and more antelope. I only saw 3 bucks last year. Missed the biggest, never got in range of the second, then shot this one last light on the last piece of public available.
