The hunt doesn't begin till next Saturday, but I'm heading out tomorrow with Justin Davis for an early scouting trip. Justin has to head back home in the afternoon and I'm going to spend a couple more days checking things out after he heads back.

Jason (Jdog) is flying in Thursday morning and after a couple quick stops we will be heading into the mountains.

I will post up some photos of the scouting trip when service provides and will also do a video on our packing list when I get back.

That's the "old school" CO Jdog! I am now much skinnier and will be sucking wind on those CO mtns as I no longer live there.

Ahhhh....the boob tree. A nice sight halfway up the mtn!

Like any good military leader...gotta give the same standard safety brief before heading outside to hunt as we do outside the wire in Afghanistan...

Jdog, make sure that Weatherby is sited in this year. You don't want to give officers a bad name:)

dammit!

Hitting the range again in the am...it was dialed in for my sheep hunt but want to ensure she is still on.

There must be a mole in the unit airing my dirty laundry...

Scouting has gone pretty well and we did see several deer, but nothing giant yet. I did learn from J that his tag is good for another unit that I've spent a lot of time in. I'm going to check that area out as well and see if bucks are still up that high right now.

We ran into the game warden on the way in (great guy and was very helpful). He pointed us to another area that we hadn't thought about and so we checked that out as well.

Photos coming soon

Well, I've decided not to post photos as it would be pretty easy to figure out where we were heading:)

We will post photos during the hunt either way.

That is an incredible buck in any state Aron! Would be the best buck on Rokslide so far this fall if you could take him. All the best on the hunt.
