    I was able to be Johnny-on-the-spot this morning. CO OTC bear tags with caps went on sale this morning at 9am. I was able to get 1 of 15 archery bear tags for my elk unit that I drew into, so I\'m pretty happy. My two boys will be hunting with me for the first time this year too, but they...

    String bow for release practice

    I want to practice my backtension with the new Tru Ball Sweet Spot release I purchased. I choose the Sweet Spot, as I wanted to have the safety feature, so that I don\'t smack myself in the face when drawing the bow back. I\'ve heard of back tension releases without the safety and newbies...

    Tough Times

    My oldest brother has been an alcoholic for several years. He was living in Seattle and lost his job due to drinking last October and hadn\'t done anything to get back on track. No seeking medical help, no applying for unemployment, nor looking for jobs. He would be out of money in a couple...

    I\'ll have to wait 6 years...

    Called my taxidermist today and found out he not only forgot to submit my mountain goat score into the Pope and Young, but he forgot to measure it entirely. I guess he had to do it by last December in order to get in the P&Y book, since they only put out a book every 6 years. No biggie, I...

    Moose Hike - I mean hunt...

    Sure felt like moose hiking in the end. Been tough to swallow not getting a CO moose, especially after I was able to harvest a CO mountain goat at 25yds a few days earlier. I have been reluctant to write about it since it still pains me being unsuccessful, but here is a recap. My brother...

    Potential Sheep Hunt 2016

    So, one of my hunting partners just called me, and he has the opportunity to get a CO rifle sheep tag. A person that drew turned their tag in and my buddy is next in line. I explained how the weighted draw process works, and he will likely take the tag. I won\'t be able to help him - unless I...

    This injury sucks...

    ...My Achilles tendonitis flared up bad today hiking - to the point where it feels like I may have torn something on the back of my heel. I hope not, I\'ll try to get to the Dr. and see what he says. My moose and mountain goat hunts are both backpack hunts - cannot drive to the units, so this...

    New Bow

    I\'ve been wanting to get a recurve bow, and pulled the trigger today on a Custom Wapiti: For the last 2 months I have been working with the guys out at Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear here in Colorado. They\'ve been great in showing me proper shooting technique and allowing me to build...

    For those in Colorado, the Aurora Gander Mountain store is closing and they\'re going to open up a new one in Parker Colorado in September. Lots of the hunting equipment is 40% off. I picked up four trail cameras that were normally $100 for 60 bucks each. There is still a good amount of gear...

    Colorado Mountain Goat Mount

    My buddy just received his Colorado mountain goat from the taxidermist, the day after I found I had a 500 series number for my CO mountain goat application in the same unit I helped him on this hunt. Pretty cool that he obtained his mount within hours after me finding out I drew my tag. Barry...

    A local archery shop here in Denver, No Limits Archery (owned by Phil Mendoza), is putting on a tournament catered towards bow hunting called the Alpha Bowhunting Challenge (Memorial Day Weekend). Phil did a giveaway where entrants had to share on Facebook the Alpha event and tag a friend. I...

    My family is growing by two feet

    Wife\'s idea - the photo and caption that is! Going to be different - we only have one girl, my niece in our family. I have 5 brothers, no sisters and two nephews. I will likely skip applying for my high pref point CO archery elk tag this year, as the little one is due in early September.

    WY Random Draw Question

    I need some help understanding the Random draw for WY elk. Let me know if my understanding below is correct. It seems a certain amount of tags will be allocated to the random draw for specific hunt areas. I believe these tags are then drawn as a true lottery, where preference points are not a...
