Default Heading to Vermejo Park Ranch

My wife surprised me and got me a bison hunt at Vermejo in March for my 60th birthday! Man I married well!!!

If all works as planned, Iíll be stalking a mature bull. Iím taking my bow, but will also bring my Ruger #1 in 45/70. My Savage 17hmr will also be coming in case we get to hit the prairie dog town.

Iíll make sure I only use the right lane for passing as we drive to and from, I wonít take any 1000 yd head shots, and weíll fully track any animal I hit. Hopefully, my future posts will also contain correct sentence structure so the resident English professor/GOF wonít be offended.

Booking hunts 2 months out is kind of optimistic at your age, don't you think?

This will be my second hunt there. I took a nice mule deer a few years back. The hunting is awesome and the food is 5 star.
