Ok, Moosie has chastised me for not poking my head in here enough. So I feel like I gotta start contributing here again so when he buys me dinner when I come up I wont feel so bad. I am going to be coming into the Boise airport at 9:40 pm on October 3, which is a thursday night before the rifle deer opener. My brother that lives in Seattle is picking me up and we will probably go somewhere to unwind for a little.
Moosie has already told me he would buy me some grub, and Ill buy him at least a pitcher in return, so who knows, it could all be on Mr. Moneybags if you play your cards right...So anyway, who's up for a little pre-hunt get together/ chow-athon. We're going on a little 8 day backpack hunt with a base camp about 4-5 miles in, so I will probably want to pack on some last minute grease calories before heading out to the great beyond on Friday.

Anway, for any of you guys that doubt that this Missourian doesent know his big mule deer, check out this 160+ deer I got on my only other self guided muley hunt in Nebraska a few years back...


Isnt that how you score them, by weight??? :rolleyes: :D

Yeah, guys. Wheres the party gonna be... :confused: Is there gonna be a self imposed curfew, or are we just gonna stay up all night, so we dont have to bother with having to wake up the next morning from way too little sleep... :eek: There's gonna be plenty of time to sleep after a long day in the hills and darkness setting in earlier, right... :D :D :D Either way, Im going to look into getting some eyelid props, and a case of No-Doze to keep my eyes open on the way out to the campsite...

Thats sounds cool. Im thinking its gonna be a long day for me as it is, but we will take you up on dinner and a brew, and would like to swing by yours and Canoes places to hang out a little and see your mounts, if we could get it wrapped up before too incredibly late (I'm thinking midnight-1 am at the very latest...) It sucks to get old and think that thats late, but thats how it goes, huh?

Hey ridgetop, maybe this will work...
We can go to dinner somewhere near Oscars pad. Then we can go look at his mounts and tuck him in bed. Then we can go over to my place and have a few more beers. That way you will be closer to Meridian when it is time to head to whereever it is that you are crashing out. I gotta warn you tho, my mounts will be pretty lame compared to Moosie's collection.

Ok Oscar, now you went and done it. You hurt my feelings.

OK, I'm over it. Poker did you say poker? Now we're talking!!

Really, I will do whatever you fellers decide.

Ridgetop, I never did hear what your plans are for hunting while you are here. Are you guys going with a guide or what? Where are you going and for how long?

Canoe,
My brother and I tried for and didnt draw unit 41 controlled hunt tags (big suprise...), so we are going on a backpack hunt in unit 36b for 8 days, which was our plan "A" all along. No guides, no horses, just hiking in and hunting out of a 2 man tent several miles into the backcountry. I cant wait to get out there and see what that area is really like. I have this one spot picked out even further out from any roads that I wouldnt ever expect to see another hunter in. It looks very hard to get into, no trails in or out of, has springs in it, and very steep all around. It looks awesome on paper. I might have to stay in there a couple of days in a cold camp there if the weather cooperates. There just has to be a big old buck or two in there... Ive done just about all the research I can, but nothing can replace time spent in the field. I'm chompin' at the bit like nobodys business...

Thanks for the pic resizing Moosie, I'll know better next time. I just thought by making it that big, that does ear spread would look bigger, and everyone would think I was a really cool trophy hunter ...:rolleyes:

The barbecue idea sounds awesome. It will be interesting to see how an Idahonian does barbecue. Being from the K.C. area I have had some of the best in the country, and like nothing better. If you want I'll bring the possum. I hear its much better fresh, so I will try to live trap one and take it in my dogs pet carrier to the airport, and see if they will let me take it as a carry on. Naturally, when I get there, I will need to make sure my rifle is still sighted in, so....:D

Ive got a great recipie that involves a beer, hot sauce and spice marinade that if cooked right, makes it taste just like snake...mmm mmmmm I can smell it now. :eek:

You're jealous??? Try living in the Midwest, and loving being in the mountains, when the closest ones are 500 miles away...:mad: then we'll talk about jealous.

So what kind of a plan do you have going for your hunts this fall?
