I bet they're really having fun hunting those big Mulies today, Is the weather real nice up there today? My neighbor brought one by the other day, his first with a bow. He said it was the biggest rush! But at least we have our work to keep our minds off of all those animals being shot while we work! :D

I went to Costco to buy new tires at 11am, and one of their employees rolled in with a Forkie in the back end of the Jeep Cherokee. He said he was first thru the check station.

Not sure how long he was gonna drive around with a forkie in his car, but as hot as it is today, he was going to need Air Conditioning going....

OAk.. I figured I wouldn't get much Sympathy from most. But I know you still feel my Pain I have inside !!!

I agree At least I still have my work.... But it's hard to concentrate when there are hills to hump !!! I did call the wife and get my Schedule though. Although this Sat is out because she has plans (I know, how dare her ;) ) I'll be out a bit on Sunday to take a looky loo around. Mostly to scout for my real trip which is later this month......

I do need to get out though, I haven't lifted my Arsch from the Sofa since my Colorado trip... I'll feel like a slug trying to keep up with Wylee and clan..... (Maybe ;) ).

Come on Sunday !!!!!!!!!!

Gunner, I've talked to F&G alot and the Amount of Forked horns that come through is Crazy the opening weekend. Usually not until later in the year the bigger ones come in. Something about the "REAL" hunters stick it out or something... I told them I keep the stats even by gringing in my small ones laer in the year. ;)

I'll be in your state Saturday flinging lead hopefully!

Gonna be a fun one actually, as I'll be hunting the state line, with bow on my pack for MT elk and rifle in hand for ID deer, Id bear, MT bear, Mt deer. That gives me a decent chance at something doens't it!!??

Does anyone know if bullet wounds can me masked well enough to look like an arrow wound??? :0)

Horn Seeker, Now this is not to be told to anyone, so the rest of ya'll shut your eyes. Cut the end out of a 410 shell, empty the shot......no looking, now take the broadhead off of the arrow, wrap the fletchings with toilet paper...shhhh.... slide the arrow into the breech of the 410 and screw on the broadhead....OK the rest of ya'll can look now! :D

I took a look at that whopper last night.
He's a young (4 1/2 yr old) buck.
Obviously from a great genetic line.
He was with another heavy 28-30" 4 point typical and my friend whacked the non-typical pig.
Think what the non-typical coulda looked like in another year or 2.
With the shooters permission I'll try get a photo to post.
