Ill be in the mountains. Cant wait.
A remarkable experience is one where the pain is forgotten so quickly, the frustrations and struggles are forgotten the minute youíre done.

I canít wait to do it the next time.

The deer are there hunting hard is the key. A lot of hunters but  I think success depend on perseverance. I see a lot of guys sleeping mid day in their tents when it's raining and moving around too much the deer are there just keeping your eyes glued to your glass and having a spot with animals eventually you get your chance and dont blow it like I did last year. Plus the memories I made with my son the last 6 years are priceless and I wouldn't trade them for a bone and Crockett buck.

It's still a bit up in the air, but I think I might actually be able to go for the last weekend of season.  I started a business in April so I've had very little time or brainpower to aim at hunting. 

Since I've had no scouting opportunities and basically zero time to e-scout, I'm thinking right now I'll just head to my usual (occasionally stupid-crowded) trailhead. 

Good luck everybody!  I'll be carrying an orange Osprey pack and a stainless Savage 16.  Say hi if we see each other!

Favorite hunt of the year! Taking my 14yo daughter...trying to walk the fine line of accurately representing how difficult it can be and not completely turning her off of it 😬

This will be my second solo hunt.  I ended up with a cute legal buck last yr.  I pulled the trigger to make my first solo trip a success.  pack in sucks, heavy pack out really  sucks but thats why we love it.  Because if it was easy everyone would be there.  Im holding out this yr for bigger.

The "shaved yeti" will be somewhere up there too.  Traveling around like gravity aint no thing.  He can chime in if he likes.

Post pics of your hunts .  Success or not we love to see them.

Now...

Lets get it on!

That is what draws some people to it.

If it is just about meat, it is always cheaper to buy it at the store.

Headed up solo tomorrow through iron gate.  Not because I've had success there, just want to check out new terrain.  I'll be the guy in a duck hunting rain jacket and KUIU pack cursing in a 1 man green tent held up with trekking poles.  Not bringing any booze, but I'll trade you some homemade jerky for some ;)

How far are you going in. I went in there solo one time very nice country super cold at night. I only went in about 6 miles saw some deer just as you get into the open  before the big rock on the right side you can hunt up to the ridge tons of beds and great views once you get up top
