Default Tradslams 2017 season, Texas, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska

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.

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