Nice job Christine! First hunt of the year can be a beeotch but it looks like it turned out great.
Huninlady, nice story.
The opener was a bit of a letdown for me. Of course it was great getting back in the woods again but all I had a shot at where small bucks. (Oh maybe I didnít tell ya I donít shoot 1 Ĺ old bucks anymore) I really was trying to shoot a doe but nothing came in close enough. The freezer is running low! Iíll be back out this weekend.

Christine-SWEET!!!!

Lady-Thanks for sharing the hunt-stories. Our opener isn't until the 16th and I'm dying to get out!!! They give us about 7 Doe tags out here so I will not be shy about filling my freezer! I had a similar Raccoon encounter...except mine was coming up the tree and snarling at me. Luckily he finally spooked bc I thought I was going to have to shoot my toe!

I've only been out one other time since opening morning. Too busy, too hot.

My plans on getting in some good private land hunting in Brown Co later this month is looking pretty grim. I just spent 1170.00 to get my truck repaired.... but the 'service engine soon' light is still coming on. ..sigh..

Oh well. I know there are decent bucks on the public ground. They're just a whole lot harder to come by.

Good luck everyone!

I haven't been out much either. Last year we were pressuring the deer to much so we are laying off a bit until Halloween.
I did see a shooter Friday night heís only a 7pt but looks to be a four year old.

Hello to all out there just thought I would check in and see what was going down.

It has been hot as heck here as well it just got a little cooler yesterday so I thought i would head out. I did see my target BUCK!!! I had 5 bucks at about 20 yards but I could not get a shot off at the BIG guy!!! I could have shot the 125 class he came right to my call he stood at 12 yards broadside for about 5 min making a rub on the tree!!! I hope I did not make a mistake not shooting him!!! I did get a great show last night the bucks came in and I watched the big guy spar with the other bucks and I even got to watch him snortweese, lift that upper lip and start flemin then he started to pee right down his legs and rubbing them hocks!!!! GREAT NIGHT!!! Lots more to the story but I am making it short and sweet. I cant wait to get back out but I need the right wind for that stand so until then GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!! Looks as if it will be heating up in the woods...

Looks as if we will get a few more team members in the field REAL SOON!!! GO & GETTEM TEAM!!!!!

WOW Huntinlady sounds like you had an awesome hunt! I usually need to wait until November to get action like that.
Donít worry about the 125 class you passed on. Heíll be a good one next year.
