I mailed my application and $ yesterday. Still gotta hunt, maybe I won't draw and I can do the MT lion. Guess if it looks real bad I could pull my app. Before the drawing. It is just my luck the year I finally get my dream hunt a bad winter comes along.
We are on our fourth mild winter in a row and the elk and deer are in awesome shape. Should be a good season here next fall.
I'm still planning on deer in northern WY. Will be the first year since 95 not trying for southern WY lopes. ...all on account of what the weather is doing. Fact is the older age class animals get nailed real hard in these types of situations and I'm not interested in making a trip that far for a low quality meat hunt.
Bcat, just getting to spend a week down there hunting and meetin you guys and spending time enjoying the whole experience will make the hunt a success. Whether big bucks are harvested or not, I measure a good hunt by the little things and friends made. It will be fun for all. And I'm sure we will see a deer. Thanks for the encouragement.
My apps are in (thanks she-cat) and come hell or high water i will be there! Even if i do not draw, I got a cat tag and WTF, just being with cuz and the rest of you will be an adventure in itself! I may have to film a documentry on "the native hunters" while i am with the gathering crew! what a bunch of animals they are!
^ years hunting on the web and I have NEVER saw a group this large come together. Thanks to the founders!! This is not just a hunt, but an adventure! PSSST!! cuz, pass the scotch
IF YA CAN'T RUN WITH THE BIG DAWGS, KEEP YOUR ARSE ON THE PORCH
Just because the winter is bad dosent mean there wont be some big ones out there. The winter kill usaly gets the week and the young, It wont be this years harvest thats going to be bad its the next two years to come that will be afected the most.
I had to brighten up everybodys day!!!
Wolfer-I dont know where you are in Wyoming but where I am at its been a tough winter. We have lots of snow and its been cold for at least 2 and a half months I mean 20 below at night and not over 20 above in the daytime. Its been tough on the deer for sure. After the drought last summer, the deer went into the winter a litle skinnier than normal and the cold hasnt helped it. Something called temperature inversions!!!! I dont know but I am starting to get real worried down here! I hear up north there isnt much snow! bcat
If you aint the lead dog the scenery never changes
