Archery Elk/Deer/Bear opens Monday(aug 23) but I ain't going..boo! I was hopeful of heading out the long weekend but appears that ain't going to happen either. Deer Archery Season opens up Sept. 1st for both whitetails and mulie province wide. However being I am taking a week off for regular elk I most likely will hunt very little if at all until Sept. 13th. Been distance scouting all summer and seen some great sights. JD best of luck on your year and go get one of them big mulies with the bow!

Mauser, never to early or hot to scout, get out their and don't leave until the bitter end. If you plan on walking the woods then your much better off to scout when season is on, since you have to be their any how..just saying make your impact as low as possible prior to your days in the field. Best of luck!

Going to start shooting does on a managed ranch in October. Rifle season starts first Saturday in November, so I'll get an extra month.
Just bought my license today, I'm ready now!

First shotgun season for deer starts Sept. 27 till Oct 9. Can’t wait. Still have to sight in my shotgun. I guess I better hurry up. It’ll be here before I know it. I can always go for migratory game birds to kill time.
