    Good year in Missouri

    My son was able to take his first deer at a friend's farm this year on the youth hunt. He made a perfect heart shot at 100 yds with my 6mm-223. I'm one proud daddy! I was fortunate to take a nice buck on my 9th and last day to hunt right at the end of shooting hours. I was hunting heavily...

I've bought 3 general buck deer points over the years, figuring I'll hunt for deer again in the general season one of these years.

    I've rifle hunted Colorado unit 62 for bulls twice and cows several times. In 2007 I took my first and only bull with a 320 yard shot from my 338 Ultramag.

    Anybody else put in for La Sal spring bear?

    I put in for a La Sal spring bear NR tag. No guarantee that I'll draw it but if I do I'll hopefully kill my first bear.
