The season already started by me but I haven’t had a opportunity to get out.

Has anyone been out in the woods?

I was out for elk and deer on sep 2nd opener.  Best I could do was a close approach to a grunting bull with a few cows.  They never knew I was there but in the end they out walked me. 🙂

My grandson went up this morning and saw two herds of elk, a couple deer and a bear.  All far away.

I'll be back at it tomorrow or Monday.

Contrary to preseason scouting prospects—First 3 days of deer season were spectacularly uneventful. Elk galore tho.

I talked with Steve Turay a couple weeks back, I bought an American (66", 51# @28" on his site). He was riding his bike into work to get ready for his elk hunt in Utah, they would be above 7500 ft elevation. He was thinking of going early to acclimate to the altitude. Good luck to everyone.

Unfortunately, no Western hunt for me this year due to Co-vid.  

Where I hunt in my home state, we're only allowed one buck on the archery tag.  For that reason, I don't start hunting until around the rut, beginning with pre-rut the end of October.  To extend my time in the woods, I've also become quite selective, holding out for a mature 3 1/2-year old or older deer.  And there aren't many of those around in my neck of the woods.

Regardless.  Wouldn't have it any other way.  I killed a buck opening day quite a few years ago.  That ended up being the longest fall I can remember.

Our season is coming in this week end. Recently, we have had a lot of very hot weather, but yesterday and today have been very pleasant. I have 4 stands ready to go.

Went out to meet up with my grandson yesterday.  He was camped for a three day hunt.  Camp was at 10,450' but was a 4X4 drive up.  He had been just not quite close enough to a trio of bucks in the morning but they spotted him and moved out.  He went to the same spot for the evening and was skunked.  

I still hunted a high ridge across the basin but sign was sparse and nothing was seen.   The picture is across to the other side.  Grandson was set up in the meadow.  It's about 3/4 mile away but the smoke from the Cameron Peak fire is thick and little detail can be made out.

It was 81 degrees on my ridge at 10,550' at 6PM!  Tomorrow there will be about a foot of snow dumped here so im excited to hit it again on Thursday.  🙂

What is the elevation at your home?  Unfortunately, I live at below 1000 ft and would find that elevation a challenge if not acclimated at 7500 ft for several days.

It is too bad the USFS won't allow the super tanker to be used to put out forest fires.  It carries 20,000 gallons of water, compared to the 3 - 5000 the Forest Service contractors carry.  CA and other states could be saved from a disaster.

I live at about 5500'.  I try to put in time at higher elevations but didn't get as much in this year.  Secret is to pace yourself, but there's a limit to the effectiveness of the that though. 

20,000 gallons would make a big difference for sure!

My first kill with an ASL. Shot into a terrace in the pasture and pulled out this vagrant critter. I think it’s called a Titelist or something.
