Nice buck Heath. We had a tough hunt. Our group went 2-5 and I wasn't one of the 2. :(

Well I finally went on my first hunt!
Unsuccessful but a good learning experience.
Got our asses kicked on a 3.5mile 1000ft elv gain hike (learned to pack lighter next time)
Had a good time, fun camping.
Saw a bear running away from us up the hill.
Saw lots I sign.
That's about it.
Now I know more for next time  :)

every year i tell myself i need to be in better shape for this next year. i have been in better shape every year. this year i really worked hard on it, averaging 4.5 days per week working out. i lifted almost 2 million pounds so far this year and i am in my best shape since getting married almost 10 years ago. my total pack in weight is down to about 45lbs for 5 days and every kind of weather. i still am surprised at how damn hard it is. embrace the suck and feel blessed if you can still do it. it never gets easy

No, not terrible. And we saw two that were big but couldn't get it done. Hoping to have the time to go back up in the regular season.
