Well I am done planning my first mule deer trip and currently waiting on draw results. My hunt of 4 has fallen to a hunt of 2 and was curious if this was the norm. When I planned my first pronghorn trip it fell from 7 to 3. So far its been little league coaching, divorce, new job, and a lot of short leashes. It all works out in the end but I'm starting to wonder if its just me. Oh well, I just talk/brag about it in front of them if they start giving me lip about how "lucky" I am just to go. I guess my luck starts about 2 years ahead of time when I get started planning and researching the trip.
