    Fall Days Afield 19/20

    Paging the fillers of freezers. Time to rock and roll.


    My tags this year include:
    3 season Spike elk (opens for archery Saturday)
    3 season buck tag
    anterless deer private lands
    Rifle Cow elk hunt on the Bookcliffs Roadless
    many duck and grouse missions

    Good luck and be safe.

    Excellent, Smithers.

    I've got one local archery elk tag (either sex), one WA muzzleloader bull elk tag, one general deer tag (buck), one December muzzleloader elk tag (either sex). Best part is that I've never used a muzzleloader before. Got myself a Knight Bighorn and have commenced practicing.

    Other than that, lots and lots of bird hunting now that both fraggle dogs are of age and ready to back each other (hopefully).

    One of my favorite threads.
    That’s a lot of tags and meat if successful on all of them phall!
    Best of luck on the muzzy hunt Rev!
    I drew nada, all out of state tags that were a tough draw going in. Not sure if I’ll hunt big game general season this year. Might just focus on fishing and waterfowl this fall.

    I didn't bother applying for any special tags this year in Montana. The general elk tag has so many options there really isn't any reason to need anything else. Lots of the districts around my home are open to antlerless elk and branch-antlered bull. Plus there's the shoulder season tags for antlerless elk, which actually opens in three days. Going to try to get out over Labor Day weekend, that's as soon as I can manage. I predict this will be the last year they offer the shoulder season tags. It's been pretty controversial to have people out there chasing elk with rifles six months a year.

    Kinda bummed my only real hunting partner is gone from Montana this year, dealing with personal issues. Hopefully my wife will be psyched to get out a few times. With the kids getting older it's easier for us to go hunting and leave them alone, which is nice.

    I plan on doing general firearm for deer this year. Has been something I've wanted to do for quite a while, but with my new state I think it's time. Sounds like the success rate for deer in Idaho Panhandle is much better than deer in Central Washington. This will be a meat/learning hunt for me, so am open to anything legal.

    Would also like to do some grouse hunting this fall, and a lot of fishing.

    Deers (a few)! Turkeys (a few)! Fishes (tons)! Doves (tons)! Hog (free refills)! No luck on my CO elk or mullie draw though.

    Regardless, more than my freezer can hold. Will be checking back and reporting as the season progresses.

    Best of luck to all.

    Plan to get out for MT archery and general. Elk is the goal. Will get a deer tag just in case I see anything 180-190+. Will never shoot a deer again unless it's a lifetime buck. No special tags, but as yeahman said there is such an insane amount of land to hunt here and 95% of the yahoos from the bigger towns only hunt 50 feet from the ATV.

    Got lucky this year and drew a trophy elk tag. Nor really in it for the trophy, but it will be sweet to be out in my unit with only 20 other folks... At the same time it's kind of intimidating since the unit is fucking huge...
    Some people are like Slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't
    help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs...

    You must see more athletic types hunting on ATVs than I do. Many are hunting over the handlebars of the ATV or out the truck window. I will spare you the rant about ATV hunters screwing up my long stalks on foot.

    I have MT elk and deer tags and shooting weekly to get ready for rifle season. Likely will go out for mountain grouse once or twice.

    I haven't shot my bow in 7ish years. I know I know. Its been in a plastic hard case in a cool garage the whole time. Dangerous to draw/shoot without re-stringing?

    Probably fine, should definitely put some wax on the string. If it were me I’d take it to a local shop and see what they say.

    It’s probably fine, bet it stretched some. For how inexpensive a string is, $90’ish, I would have it replaced. It would suck to have it let go and ruin a limb or two or worse yet, injure yourself.

    Picked these up about a month ago. Shed this spring, so the fella will be in the area this fall. No big moose draw this year but I will tempt a spike bull if the opportunity arises.

    Fishing was pretty good this season. First time out with the father in law, my father couldn’t make it this year due to last minute health stuff. Wife reeled in her first tyee, I played with a 2m pacific octo, but gave him enough slack to unhook itself. Click image for larger version.

    This a decent enough bow? I'm out of the loop and know the new stuff is fancier. Seems like alot of cheap newer bows on craigslist.
