Never even crossed my mind.
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:30:45 PM »
So I set out last coupl days to explore new grounds and try to fulfill my archery deer tag. Or bear, lion, small game. Really just wanted to fulfill a tag. So I drove into this area dead of night. Not knowing road to goat trail. Thanks onx maps for keeping me in the national forest. The next morning I was parked near a pretty good draw to glass. So I rolled out of the truck and started glassing. Hour or so after firstlite. I needed my morning coffee. So back to truck and made my coffee. Sitting on my tailgate I hear something walk down the road. I look over and I see this guy starring at me. Not sure if I was shocked more then he was. But we looked at each other for awhile. Then I said I need to record this causenobody gonna believe me. Seen tons of deer, grouse, and the biggest nope rope rattle snake one wants to see. Pretty good two day trip.

243?  That's great news.  Nice video.  (Be careful with those guys, very powerful and will sometimes surprise you.)

Cool video.
