Is there an extended buck or either sex season? I could possibly tie one up to my mailbox post, if that's convenient enough.

15th - 18th this year. Salmo - if you could get a nice 3 pt. or better tied up, that would be fantastic.

I was fortunate enough to harvest a nice 4x Roosie on the opener last Saturday. Does that count?

Haven't seen the 3-point for several weeks. I think he's in hiding, or gone nocturnal as you say.

Several does and yearlings around again yesterday. Turns out they get real pissed when I try to lasso them. As docile as they normally are, they also have a mean streak when disturbed.

There is a video out there of some clown putting a lasso on a doe...that deer kicked that dumbass all over the yard. I bet he never does that again.

Fish on...

It's a good thing we don't know anyone that would ever accost a poor city deer on one or more occasions. thumbs

That's a fair read, but you never know what surprises the future may bring.

In reality, old Nick wouldn't be typing to you now. Old Nick would be gutted like a fish in a Shenzhen back alley somewhere and left for dead. For real.

Whew!

Two thumbs up for Drew ! It looks like Drew and his family will make it thru this winter ! wink

My meat hungry family is banking on the late buck season however, the weather is looking way too nice again, so itz likely a long wet winter of eating chum for us...

I killed a 5x4 bull and a cow with a pumice plains tag. Wife got 2 pt blacktail. I just got back from 5 days hunting with my dad on his muley tag. He passed a big 3x4 the first hour. We passed dozens of bucks but never found the giant we were looking for. We’re headed back for the last weekend. We’d like to go more since the rut was really getting going when we left but we both have to work through Friday.

Hopefully late buck is good for everyone!

Nothing on my Bainbridge early season archery, but then I NEVER see them in Sept. NOW however, I have a decent 3x4 walking around the apple orchard I hunt. Will he be there on 21 Nov. when the late season starts???? History says NO but hope springs eternal...

Nothing to report back at this juncture. I'm into ML season now and have until the 15th to seal the deal on the Masher. He zigged instead of zagged this past weekend - again. He's a crafty bassturd.

Warning, very few animals were harmed in the making of this post.

Sorry Parker, I was a little slow on taking the bait. Haven't been poking my head in here too often lately. Don't worry Stam, I still love you. Sorry to be a stranger, though I hear you like the stranger from time to time?!?

2018 was a rough one for me with regard to putting groceries in the freezer. I spent a lot of time in the field, more than that last year or two for sure, but I wound up with a lot less meat to show for it. Made some exceptionally memorable memories in some amazing places with top shelf people, which is the important part I guess. It would have been nice to have a little more to take home for the effort though. C'est la vie.

Here is a quick recap.

I went on my first mountain goat hunt at the tail end of "last" season or beginning of "this season." Goats are tough to kill, tough to eat, but badass animals that live in cool places. I like mountain hunting.

































My first fall hunt was for caribou. I planned a long weekend to hunt the opener and then planned on hunting each of the next two weekends. I passed up a decent bull at 7am on the opening morning that was standing within yards of where I killed my B&C bull a few years back. Big mistake. Weather blew us out of the high country and for the next three days we stared at an endless parade of cows and calves with not a bull to be found. ADFG shut the season down a few days after the opener as the recently and greatly reduced quota had been met. So I wound up hunting basically two days of what was supposed to be a 30 day opportunity. Major disappointment and failed plan.

























Checked out some new country for my sheep trip this year. Flew into the Talkeetna mountains and battled some burly weather for ten days. We hiked our dicks into the dirt and saw a bunch of animals. Passed on a ram that was probably legal on our first day of hunting. He was just too close for comfort and so I let him walk from 30 yards. The weather gods were against us as the clouds and rain seemed to show up just when we needed vis the most.
















































In September I dropped in my uncle and his family in Montana and chased elk with a bow and arrows. It was the most fun I've ever had on a hunt. I didn't fling any pointy things at elk but we got one for the team. I am hooked for life on hunting elk in the rut. On one magical day we were surrounded by fifteen different bulls and a pile of cows all going nuts. Awesome.

And finally I snuck in a little hunting on a family trip to Hawaii over the holidays. Hunting critters with breaking surf waves as the backdrop and grilling meat on the beach in flip flops and shorts is pretty cool. Might have to try that again sometime. Axis deer is some high quality grub. The cultural and interpersonal experience was more meaningful than the harvest. Lots of cool history in that place.

Dream in the spirit of Minho.





















Here is to a safe and successful 2019 season eh!
