On trail rodeo and all! Glad that went down without injury to either animal or man.
It seems like this roadless area has its own microclimate with trout in the desert. An aspirational location to visit
I ventured out at 0'dark thirty to see about a fall turkey (bow or shotgun) or perhaps a whitetail doe (bow only).
The private land 80 acres of wildlife heaven has changed hands and I feel very fortunate that the new land owners have extended permission for me to continue outdoors adventuring...
That Photo will get me salivating some....
My On-X is getting lots of “need to check this WIHA” waypoints already. And the Outdoors Mentors connections have had some suggestions.
@Southwind sent me an archery mule deer from this fall. Bruiser!

Thumbs up all the way around.....landowners, NoDak POTSland, @Flatrock, wife/kids/work flexibility, skidsteers, good shooting and an entertaining way of telling your tale @Schism

I can think of a higher than treeline trail in the western Bighorns where I wish a cairn would have shown me the way to the trail on the other side of the divide. On the other hand not having the trail once we made it to the stunted growth down below meant that we went meandering about looking...
Amazing that nobody was physically injured!
Any chance the muzzle end was grounded (dropped/rested) into the dirt resulting in a partial/complete blockage? Sometimes kids aren't 100% aware of where the muzzle is, or the significance of debris in the barrel.
Initial virus loading seems to play a big part in outcomes for infected, non-comorbidity patients. If you have a "Small" exposure, the disease process doesn't get as big an initial push and you tend to fare better. If it is a "Large" initial exposure the opposite happens.
