We are lucky enough to be going into 16a this weekend, and I told my wife if I get lucky early in the hunt, I am staying all the way through ( still have a turkey and bear tag too ). So I will need a place to hang my meat if the stars...

    Morning MM'ers Just a couple quick questions if you all have the time. I have 3 youths I am taking out this upcoming weekend to 6A, and was wondering: Is there any snow pack anywhere? Do I need to be concerned with road condition anywhere? Are the elk still up high? Weather looks to be dry...

    A Promise Kept

    About this time last year, there was a thread come up about how some felt that it was ridiculous that the youth in our state got some of the "prime" hunting windows. I took a personal exception to this, and made a public promise to take one new hunter under my wing every year and hopefully...

    Get your minds out of the gutters..... :) Went out this weekend as I had a little bit of down time from work, and man was it brutal. I hunted down in 16C for Muleys, and in 2 days of hunting covered ~20 miles according to my GPS. And NO it wasn't on a 4wheeler. If it wasn't 90+ degrees it...

    16 archery Deer

    Good Morning Gents, First year I have put in for deer in a long time, and I was hoping it would compliment an elk tag, as I put in for 16A ( and have hunted 3/5 years there, knowing the area fairly well ). But alas, the gods of the draw decided a deer tag was enough ( Sept 1-24, and Jan...

    Cell Service in Valle Vidal?

    My daughter has a cow hunt oct 30 thru nov 3 in the VV, and I was wondering do they have any cell coverage up there? Also, how hard is it to get to the Shuree ponds campground that time of year ( we have a 28 foot 5th wheel )? She took an oryx last year at 300+ yds so I am confident if we put...

    Archery Antelope "Costumes", Do these things work?

    My bro-in-law and I got drawn for antelope this year aug 14-18, and had some private land lined up. After being drawn, we spoke to the landowner and found out that he had sold the land. So it is up to us to get some leather on the ground, find the goats and chase em. I have heard of flagging...

    Valle Vidal Worth getting a Bear tag?

    Evening Gents! My daughter drew a cow tag for VV, and I saw that if you have an elk tag, then she can carry a bear tag for the same weapon allowance as well. Is the bear population up there worth getting a tag for her? I hope to be getting up there a couple times before her hunt which is the...

She got inside, and all of my firearms were laid out on the living room floor. He had helped hisself to my daughter's Gym bag, and had...

    Little bit of fabricating

    Neither of us are fabricators, but we just had to give this a try. Myself, and My bro-in-law ( biohazardman ) decided to have a go at a skinning rack for the back of the truck, as we have grown tired of skinning on the ground all the time. After a bit of cussing and discussing, we got to...

    She did it!!!!!

    After going hard all month, it all finally came together. This is my oldest daughter, Cristina, she is 11 years old, and this was her first big game hunt. I think she is hooked. This would not have been possible without the kindness of another hunter and his daughter. We ran into them...
