Title: Never even crossed my mind.
Post by: Elkcollector82 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.
