Public land can sure be fun and sure be tough in Colorado. Bucks on public on Saturday are all holed up on non-hunted private on Sunday. We watched some bruisers this year on non-huntable private.
One afternoon we decided (thank you Bill!) to checkout some new country and spotted some does bedded up in some small finger canyons. After picking it apart with the glass for awhile and not coming up with a buck in sight, we decided to circle around the deer and come up above them on the ridge. We figured we might bust the does out and see if anything was with them.
Well, our plan worked out well as you can see the end result. One shot kill at 1:30pm and he was quartered, packed and in the truck by 3:30. Pretty sweet and I think he will look great on the wall.
Thanks to my CO hunting buddies, Bill and Brian, for the help and good times! From working cows on a ranch on Friday to 7 mile days, what great trips we have!"
