Packing my bags...

13 posts in this topic

After 4 years of applying, we just found out we drew a limited quota muley tag in WY. We are pumped. Been watching the weather channel, and WY has been recieiving lots of precip this spring, should make for good antler growth.

Now the fun part, planning, packing, shooting, scouting trips. Going to be some sleepless nights in the next few months.

Our trip is planned for the end of October, which is the rifle season, but we can purchase an archery tag if we want to go out in Sept and scout/hunt with stick n string.

Congrats fireman. I shot a big mulie in MT a couple years ago and it was the highlight of a very long hunting career. The favorite part of my pre-hunt was squeezing the trigger on that big 300WSM over and over again. Still can't get enough of that.

Good luck!!!

Now that I figured out how to put pics on here, I can post my 2009 Wyoming DIY public land mulie.

Not the biggest on the mountain, but will be the biggest on my wall. He is a 150" 3 pt with eyeguards.

    • I'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though
