this year is odd. i have three archery deer hunting options. THREE! all three appear to have the same opening day, and 23 day durations. bummer for me.
i'm married, so i cant simply disappear. my most promising hunt in terms of fun and deer success will be a D-zone. 1 week backpack in hunt. get there 1-2 days before the august 17 opener..suss it out. hopefully kill one..eat some and carry the load back out. the meat hauling seems very unattractive to me.
i have a decent B zone hunt. seen some HUGE deer, reachable by brutal day hikes. i get to hunt, camped next to my truck. easy..
my friends property. my shortest hunt..because i cant crash on their couch too long. not alot of deer, but i get a bed and a real kitchen. deer populations are rebounding. parents are cool..
november..AZ squirrel hunting with my bow, pellet rifle and vintage 22!
late november..abilene texas for cattle roundup and monster mulie and whitetail hunt. no treestands allowed on property..all spot and stalk.
my wife is gonna get annoyed. but i did cancel this year's elk hunt. brother is getting shoulder surgery. i am gonna put some miles on the tacoma!!
