I was kicking this around for a while but been a little busy. This is the first year I've ever not had a compound in the lineup. No crutch to fall back on!

My season already started last month in Texas where I was lucky enough to take an Axis, aoudad ram, and a few hogs. I won't go into this hunt to much since it's been posted on the harvest threads, but here's the critters from that hunt.

The fun hunts are still coming, I have mule deer and elk tags in Colorado, antelope in Wyoming, and 2 either sex either species tags and two doe whitetail tags in Nebraska. I'm headed up scouting for elk and deer here in Colorado and putting a few cameras out Wednesday.

This last weekend was spent relaxing with the wife, fishing around "the shack" for trout and grayling.

Things got cut short with the crappy weather. Did see a nice Muley some elk, including this bull.

Found a great stand sight, over a tank that had a great wallow last year. You can see the tracks in the water from earlier in the day.

Dry Bones 07-19-2017 09:29 PM

From the description and the pics, I would say the scouting was somewhat successful. Congrats on a great Start.

Shiloh 07-19-2017 09:41 PM

Very nice pics.
An nice axis with a Trad Bow is truly an accomplishment!

Pedernal 07-19-2017 09:48 PM

Great start to the year, hope it only gets better through the rest of the year.

tradslam 08-25-2017 01:37 PM

Headed up the mountain!!!

tradslam 10-22-2017 01:57 PM

Did a horrible job keeping this going! The elk season ended with 5 bulls being called in, under 40 yards without an arrow being let go! Also got close to a 200 inch giant muley, blew it as I was getting "just a little closer". That's the difference between a stick and a compound! Everyone was on the ground with the compound.

I did help a buddy come out for lopes, and we were able to tag out on 4 opening day. (Rifle hunt, so not sure if I should post pics)

The day after the lopes were down we drove to Nebraska to hang stands. He convinced me to bring the compound and sit the edge of a field for whities. Got lucky and took a doe and a PY 8. Getting ready for the Nebraska rut, and the weather looks great!!

One of the many bulls that came to the call.
