There has been more snow in all the mountains up higher in the last week, it has been warner the last couple days but the news said it's cooling down again, be patient, wait for it to warm up!

Adjusting my schedule to force me to be patient.  Once I unbolt the shop door and hitch the trailer, game over.  Rain slacked for a day on the wet side allowed for a firewood run to get some value out of a Weyhauser permit.  Weather just not cooperating.

Seems like a cruel joke to open the season on April 1st.

Alright guys been kicking around the idea of trying shoot one with my bow. I am used to hunting the sage brush for mulies so my effective range is good and have been doing lots of research on shot placement. My thoughts have been if I'm going into a calling situation to take the bow and if I'm going in spot and stalk I'll take the rifle. For the guys that have been there and done it is this just a big pipe dream or am I looking at something in the realm of possibilities?

GOOD LUCK with that!
I don't see a problem useing a bow if you can call one in to fifty yards ,leave the bait at home not sound advise there.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
