    How do you balance shooting with fitness

    Maybe so but learning to keep a positive attitude when things get hard or boring or frustrating during conditioning, strength training and practicing with your bow can help on the mountain. This is supposed to be fun

    How do you balance shooting with fitness

    Excellent advice! A positive attitude is easy when you are seeing or even hearing elk but when it's Day 5 of a week long hunt and you've seen nothing it's easy to go from hunting to pouting/hiking, you stomp over the next ridge rather than sneak over and end up busting bedded elk everywhere. All...

    Everyone’s 2024 season plans

    When your kids are hunting second fiddle is the best place to be. I was in a stand 70 yards from my daughter's stand watching a buck feed towards her. I can't see her but I'm wondering if she sees the buck, if she's even awake or messing with her phone. I'm getting some buck fever watching...

    CPW officially recommends fully limiting NR Archery- OTC Resident

    It depends. I find Wyoming plenty friendly. If I strike out in archery season I can return for rifle season with the same tag. Not happening in Colorado.

    CPW officially recommends fully limiting NR Archery- OTC Resident

    Many years ago I hunted an OTC unit in Colorado. I heard it went to a draw unit but the number of tags was so high that nothing really changed.

    2024 MCAAP Controlled Hunt

    In my day we had to consolidate based on where you are hunting within the area. We had four hunters per truck but we went separate directions on scouting day and hunting days. Driving rules may have changed. I would set a stand on scout day. You can always get down and move as long as you don't...

    2024 MCAAP Controlled Hunt

    Perfect summary by Mighty Mouse. To emphasize: You don't need to walk to the far reaches of your area to hunt. I shot my buck on last day about 50 yards from major intersection (I'm a slow learner) You need to go to the traditional 3D shoot in August if possible and see some the the country...

    2024 MCAAP Controlled Hunt

    Nice weekend to draw! I've been there a few times. Killed a buck in Hominy. I have hunted Boggy too. I've got a digital copy of the map they gave to the hunters. Send me your email and I'll get it to you. You can match it with Google Earth and do a little screen scouting. It's a unique hunt...

    Bow Hunters….

    Yes but I'm 71. I barely remember 60. Ike is cheating with that new Lift. Deer hunting is all archery. If we happen to strike out on elk in Wyo during bow season or draw multiple tags we will go back during rifle season.

    How many releases do you have?

    That's an interesting design. I recently went from a Truball Short and Sweet R index to a Spot Hogg Keeton because the handle was supposed to be easier on old man arthritic surgically-repaired shoulders. It is very nice on the draw but I'm not wild about the anchoring with the Keeton and its...

    Mean Cow Elk!

    Now with a straight face I can tell the grandkids that I hunt dangerous game.

    IADNR bans cell cam "scouting" during hunting season

    I'm for banning the naming of big bucks seen on any camera then telling anyone who will listen that he needs another year.

    DIY Saltwater Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island

    We trolled with flashers and hoochies for salmon, usually silvers. One year we successfully were casting spinners for silvers and it was great fun. Halibut was primitive rig that looks like a coat hanger: big jig, hook tipped with squid or something and a big weight using a rod similar in...

    DIY Saltwater Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island

    I have not purchased groceries in Ketchikan but they are pretty high on POW. If you need just minor things like bread, beer and mustard in Coffman you can probably get it at the Riggin Shack and the liquor store attached to the bar rather than drive to Klawock. Island Air lands us in Klawock so...

    DIY Saltwater Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island

    Coffman Cove is where I've always gone. Great place and great people. You will have fun. Only downside is grocery options are almost non-existent. We bought groceries in Klawock.

    DIY Saltwater Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island

    I've fished POW many times. I didn't use the ferry (Island Air out of Klawock-Ketchikan). Fish boxes work fine but can be cumbersome to handle in airports. Rent a cart. I moved to Polar Bear 48 soft side coolers. They hold exactly the same as the fish box but much easier to handle and the added...
